So this morning I woke up and got ready like any other day.. Outside my house there is a crosswalk, because it is right across from a middle school. So I managed to see this person, he was all dressed in black and it was still early so it was dark outside. So I see him and I stop to let him go across the crosswalk.. however the person on the other side of the road.. either didn’t see the guy walking or what, but you would think if I am stopped on the other side of the crosswalk, there is a good reason… Anyway so the guy in his blue car continued to speed towards the crosswalk, where I realized he might not stop… luckily the guy crossing the crosswalk realizing the same thing, jumped back out of the way right as he was in the middle of the crosswalk and the guy in the blue car swerved the other direction and just stalled there for a few minutes, probably processing that he almost killed a person… What I still do not get is why the guy didn’t figure out why I was just stopped, because you do not stop in the middle of the road for no reason, and right in front of a crosswalk. That was adventure number 1.
Number 2 of the morning. So I am a morning nanny and I go and make lunches and take the kids to school, etc. But I was taking the older boy Grant to school this morning and there is the line of cars that go and drop of the kids. so you just pull in and go. So I was following this black suv down to the drop off point and we pull in where the black card decided it was going to back up.. Why in the world would you decided to pull in and back up in the loading zone at a school right before school starts is beyond me. I was paying close attention to this car and when it was a sec from hitting my car I honked on my horn and the guy stopped. I still do not know why they needed to back up, but a loading zone in rush hour school traffic is not the way to go. There are dozens of parents and nanny’s bringing children to school. That was my almost accident of the day….. so you could this morning started out with a bang! with crazy stupid drivers!
