I’d like to revisit my prior complaint about holiday traffic/stress for a moment. I tried to drive a mere 1.5 miles from my house and sat in traffic the whole way. I have to wonder why these people aren’t at work, earning the money they’ll inevitably need to pay their phenomenal credit card bills after Christmas. Once I got to my destination – Borders – I had to drive ’round and ’round for the lot was full. Elliot didn’t really allow me much time so I left empty handed. As I got back to my car, I noticed that the couple parked beside me just got in and was about to open their doors. So, since with my Element I have to have both doors open and then put the kid in, I set down the baby seat and waited a sec. I glanced at the car beside me, sort of stared beyond it at the traffic, and was then caught off guard by the middle-aged black man in the car who yelled, “What the fuck you lookin’ at?”
Uh, huh? Taken aback, I sort of sputtered out a reply to the effect of, I thought you guys were getting out and I was letting you go first. He grumbled something, threw something at his wife, and then they both got out and slammed their respective doors. Some things I will never understand, I suppose.
On a tangent, I’m ever so proud of my school right now. ::Rolls eyes with sarcasm::
Not that they would have won a bowl game anyway; we haven’t been good since 1999. Good thing I was here to witness their one last hurrah as a great football team.
