So...Yeah...

I guess someone likes us so we were just informed we were in the running for the best mommy blogger award at this site So go vote. A coffee cup and link love depend upon it.

Aside from that, I got very angry today at a driver. And because Sister Big told me we need to blog more, I'm going to rant for a second.

First, yes, I admit I was on my phone. But I was driving slowly through a parking lot. I had just driven up a row and had begun turning left. While I was turning left a guy in the next row over turned very quickly right and drives quickly toward me.

I think for a moment and figure-hey, if I stop and wait for him I'm going to be blocking him and traffic and force him to pass me on his left, in the lane that goes in front of the store. So I continue my turn. However, car continues to drive quickly at me, going very fast and with no intention of stopping. He does stop as I complete my turn, and yes I was driving slowing. When its snowy in Northern MI I drive very slow-even in a parking lot. But I wasn't crawling. Just not speeding around.

So I look him like "Uhh! What the heck are you doing??" and he mocks me, he pretends to be a ditzy girl on a phone. I was sooo mad! I wanted to scream "Buddy, my talking on the cell has nothing to do with you tearing around a parking lot! Clearly I shouldn't be on the phone, but dude, its no reason to sherk responsibilty for being an A-HOLE. I would have gone after him but his passenger was an old lady and I had this thing about old poeople. So just stewed about it.

And had I not been on the phone, I would have done the same thing. I had the right of way since he was not there when I turned.

Jerk.

I wondered where you went too. I thought maybe you didn't love me anymore....

It's usually the other drivers that are crazy and dangerous. I've told my husband many times (he is my driver because I don't dare to drive in the capital) that no matter how carefully he drives someone might still hit us or cause a chain accident. I've never been in a car accident but I'm scared all the time, especially with the baby on board.

You two have my vote! I hate folks who zip around parking lots.

You don't get that your talking on the cell phone while driving WAS a problem? Probably was THE problem? Maybe that SISTER of Perpetual Mercy should visit upon you with her yard stick! So you can learn not to do that again. Tsk tsk. The other driver IS you, deary. Love You. Love your blog.

I acknowledge driving while talking isn't the best. But dude, I'm driving slowly through a parking lot when this guy tears around the corner-in the middle of my turn-already in progress. He was not turning nor was waiting to turn as I began my turn. No ones should speed through a parking lot-phone or no phone. Me being on my phone had nothing to do with him driving like a mad man at me.
