And a hearty...

FUCK YOU to the asshole in the pick-up truck who thought it was a splendid idea to suddenly stop and back up so he could turn into the parking lot of the strip mall at Flamingo and Jones. If I hadn't had quick reflexes, my car would have acquired a new, vintage hood ornament! And I'd be at the ER right now, no doubt.


I saw the following license plate holder a few blocks later, which helped cool my ire:

"IF HELL FREEZES OVER I'LL SKI THERE TOO!"

It cracked me up.

Ah... that "suddenly I shall back up without looking" shit happened to me just last year. I got a new hood, new headlight assembly (on one side) and the entire front end of the car repainted out of the deal. And a ten-day trial separation with my baby... which only reinforced the fact that we're still in love. Oh, yes... we ARE.

I'm glad you got away unscathed, Christina. The Gods smiled on you today.

Buck, I'm glad you and your baby still love each other...ain't love grand? ;)

I'm so used to driving in this hell-hole that my heart rate didn't even speed up. I still can't believe anyone would be asinine enough to back up while on the road, though.

Well I'm surprised you're still alive with the way people drive in Las Vegas.

Did you show him your middle distal phalange? Or was it too busy turning that steering wheel?

Glad you didn't get injured! That would have seriously sucked.

Christina LMT said...

Leslie, you and me both. Considering that I've been involved in three accidents since I moved here...

Roismhaire, I don't flip people off anymore. Not since I had a rather road-ragey incident with another driver. Now I blow kisses! ;)
I'm extremely glad I didn't get hurt, either. I can't afford to miss work!
