To the lovely woman taking a left out of the gas station across from Twice Told Tales and Kneeland Street in Pawtuxet Village:
You were turning left and looking right, you went to pull out in front of the person in the left lane. I was heading away from the village in the right lane. You didn't look and almost pulled into me. I slammed on my brakes and then pulled around you. Rather than being a decent person, or even a normal person you turned into some screaming banshee and flipped me and my child who was in the backseat off.
In return, I gave you a thumbs up -- because you are clearly doing a great job! I continued down Broad Street towards Park Avenue, and you cut the person off in the left lane, pulling a pretty illegal U-turn in the middle of Broad Street.
I was going the speed limit, as it was 8:20 AM, and there were kids everywhere on their way to school. SO, you sped up behind me -- beeping and almost hitting me. So, I pulled over, because I was not going to drive any faster... then you took a right and sped off.
Are you okay? Do you need help?
Did you wake up to find your life more miserable than yesterday?
Because I can't understand why you would behave in such an irrational, unsafe, and insane manor.
But I do thank you for giving me the opportunity to educate my child on road rage -- and how to not feed the fire -- or behave. You could have killed someone. You weren't looking and were clearly in a rush, but if you were in such a rush why follow me? Why follow me anyway? What were you trying to accomplish?
If you read this, which I hope you do, take a minute to evaluate the situation:
What the F*** is wrong with you?!
Be a better person. Be a more cautious driver.
Thank you for scaring the absolute s*** out of me and my child before school. Pay attention next time! Aside from almost causing a head-on collision, you were aggressively driving through a neighborhood full of children on their way to school.
The woman cautiously driving the little red car that you chased down the road.
