This morning I went out for a run. I was only a short distance from my house and I had just passed the first four way stop when I noticed a Chrysler 300 approaching from the right. Since I was already in the intersection I figured he would obey the traffic laws and actually stop.
He barely slowed down and was literally only a few feet from me so I sped up in order to avoid getting hit. It wasn’t like he was distracted, he totally saw me and just wanted to be an asshole.
I was pissed, but even more than that, I felt like sort of a bad ass. Not bad ass like I’m all fast and shit but bad ass like I just played chicken with your automobile ass and I won, sucker!
I realized a little while later than I’m sort of an idiot and one should never try to outrun, or play chicken, with a car. Especially a car driven by an asshole.
Tell me about your latest close encounter.
