Friday 55 &Da Count-Thwarted

FRIDAY 55

I had the right of way
but you were determined.
Even though I was halfway through
you barreled into the intersection.
You were in a hurry so I stopped,
But you paused
 to scream and point angrily.
Ah, so it's entitlement not haste.
I moved to calmly flip you off
but I was wearing mittens.


DA COUNT
It's probably better that I was wearing mittens.  It saved me from myself.

Oh how they piss me off, those morons. I had someone yell at me when he ran a red while I was crossing the street. He was on his phone. Asshat.

This kind of thing happens to me a lot...don't remember it occurring when I was younger, and 'fit'.

give 'em the mitten and the bent elbow.

Morons!

the veri word is Groiner.

Better to let them think it just a wave... makes for a little less animosity in the world, and that's a good thing. Funny 55, Lime!

Cocotte said...

Otherwise, it looks like a friendly wave!

Wow! Had a somewhat similar incident just an hour ago. Was in a sub sandwich place and had two ladies and their teenage boys in front of me obviously engrossed in a deep conversation. So much that they seemed to be ignoring the line since there was at least four feet between their group and the person in front of them.

I started to go around but decided against it only to have the cook behind the counter motion for me to do just that a few seconds later. That caught the attention of one of the moms who gave me a dirty look as she quickly moved up where her group should have been in the first place.

Words seemed about to be exchanged but they thought better of it and moved on.

Limey....
Forget the Bird.
Fuck You Ass-Hole was in order!

You have such tact...hehehe
Thanks for the smile, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Brilliant! I thought this was going to be just one more rant about madness on the road, but it was so much more. It was funny.

Thank you.

Hilary said...

This made me laugh out loud. You need a pair of fingerless mittens. ;)

Monkey Man said...

I am amazed at the people who flip me off or gesture when they are the ones in the wrong. Mittens or not, a bird would have made you feel better.

S said...

Oh I woulda ripped a hole right through that mitten with my angry middle finger! LOL

Kavita said...

hahaha...as serious as this was, it really made me laugh! I could imagine you giving them the MITTEN! I wonder how they reacted! LOL...
But like you said, you saved you from yourself!!

This was a witty one 55, my friend... Enjoyed it!!!

Stay safe!! :)

Road rage can be a dangerous thing. Just as well you had your mittens on Michelle! - Dave

Suldog said...

I can just picture you giving someone the bird but them not knowing because of the mittens. Great mental picture.

Mother Theresa said...

People like that are so not worth even wasting the energy it takes to flip them off. Hooray for mittens! :)

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Ha ha! Oh, I identify with that so well! God bless the mittens. :) Congrats on your POTW!

Life with Kaishon said...

Ha Ha Ha Ha! The mittens saved you from yourself : ) How funny!

Frank Baron said...

Bravo! A lovely bit of writing to illustrate a slice-o'-life moment we can all relate to. :)

CherylK said...

So instead of giving him the finger (or glove), you came home and vented with words. Very sensible! Congrats on your POTW!

Jocelyn said...

I don't have a thing to say. I'm speechless. Because, HELLO UNIVERSE?, our dear Lime is so far removed from needing the joke of a near miss that there is no humor in your batting her about thusly.
