It's Official--Pedestrian Danger

On my way to class today, I was this close to getting hit by a car while crossing my street. Damn old ladies! But I think there is a deeper meaning...perhaps this means that I should cut the rest of my classes this week! After all...this is the last week of class until finals.

Glad you're ok!

I agree.



People here are so stupid! It'll be icy out and before cars stop at the redlight, they just go. Like...sometimes cars canNOT stop. As a great man once said: I'm surrounded by freakin' idiots!

Oi! Ladylemon, I do hope you banged on the hood and yelled out... "Hey! I'm walkin' 'ere!" Seriously, I'm glad you weren't hurt!

I almost slipped under a bus before when I was walking to school

thankfully I didn't

But old ladies are just trying to get the world back for always trying to run them over. They have such a hard time walking around that they hate all pedestrians who walk with such effort!!

ATTACK OF THE VENGEFUL GRANNIES!!

Well, I really wanted to give her the finger, but then I'd feel a bit guilty about flicking off someone's grandma. Having a conscience is simply the pits...
