What is it that makes pedestrians so sure I'm going to stop when they walk out in front of me? I'm not talking about when they're on a crossing or they have the green light telling them to cross - I'm a great respecter of pedestrian rights. I'm talking about suicidal fucks who step right into traffic. I would actually have some respect for them if they admitted they were deliberately trying to commit suicide - it's a pretty good plan. Sadly, I'm pretty sure it's Darwinism in action I'm witnessing, not any well thought-out plan.
The real prize-winners are:
- walking into peak hour traffic. Drivers in peak hour are either pissed off about having to go to work or worn out and desperate to get home. Don't get in their way.
- large crowds who swarm across the road against the light simply because everyone else in the crowd is doing it. Look up lemmings - there is only one way this is going to end up.
- people who walk into traffic at night on a poorly lit street while wearing black clothes. I call these ones "speed bumps".
Will you people please grow a fucking brain? I really don't want to run anyone over. I'd feel bad. But you know what? Eventually the bad feeling will go away. And you'll still be dead.
