This is a scary time we are living in. Take all the shootings on the reg, Hollywood inappropriateness that keeps exposing itself, and overall madness that occurs on a regular basis. I’m not sure if this has been happening for the last century, and we all didn’t have cameras to record it, or if it’s the way the way society has evolved. This observation truly makes me scratch my head.
I have a 4 minute commute. It’s short, sweet, and simple. What could possibly happen in 4 minutes? I haven’t noticed this in past years, but I swear to god, people are trying to get hit by my car. They cross streets without looking both ways. Head down on their phone and crossing streets aimlessly. People expect you to see them and throw no caution to the wind. Nate Berger in college used to have the saying “don’t break stride”. I thought it was the epitome of stupidity. These people must know Nate.
Pedestrian’s are bad but biker’s are worse. They will ride 5 mph in the MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. I understand bikers who are trucking it, moving near the speed limit for a short period of time. These bikers I see nowadays are asking to get hit so they can sue. They WANT to get hit. There are only 2 things I can think of:
1) Life is so miserable they want to get hit so they can end up in the hospital, get taken care of and waste tax payer dollars, collect disability, and sue.
2) They have small brains.
Have I hit a person yet? I have not but it gets closer every day. The phone makes it bad. The lack of caring, or dirty intentions, makes it worse.
