20th and Union ~ 8:15am –
When you see people standing at the intersection, an intersection with a marked cross walk no less, stop your fricken car! You do know that by braking you can replenish the stored energy in your vehicles batteries right? Or are you just another poser in a Prius, “Hey! Look at ME! I’m green!”?
I had my eyes on you the whole time. I saw you brake coming down the hill and thought it was a gesture to follow WAC 132E-16-040 – Pedestrians—Right of Way. Your sudden deceleration and your poorly tuned brakes that caused you to swerve left and right dramatically proved me wrong. Yelling at me from behind the windshield telling me to watch where I was going was classic. Rolling down the window to continue to berate me was even better.
Did you spill your extra hot/double/halfcaf/2 pump vanilla latte in your lap? Leave a little skid mark in your shorts? I’m sorry. Well, OK. Maybe not.
