Somewhat eventful commute into work today...
Somewhat eventful commute into work today.
First thing I had a flat about a mile from the house which put me about 10-15 min behind my normal schedule. I'm slow at changing flats.
Next, I roll up to a stop light on a 4 lane. I'm stopped at the stop line, I'm on the right next to the white line, on the side of the road waiting. First in line at the light.
I notice across the intersection coming from the opposite direction a lady opens the door to her stopped car and partially steps out and starts yelling something and I realize she's yelling at me. I can't understand her. She gets back into the car.
Then she get's out again and starts yelling at me. Something about "get off the road". She gets back into the car.
Then she get's out again and starts yelling at me. This time it's "ride on the side walk", "get off the road", blah, blah, blah. The light turns green and she's still yelling. I'm moving on and she's holding up traffic.
I really had not reaction or response to her other than to laugh to myself.
I'm not sure what her deal was. I wasn't impacting her at the time. She was in one of the oncoming lanes, 3 lanes over from me, on the opposite side of an intersection, stopped at a light. Perhaps I've upset her sometime in the past. I ride that route about 3 times a week. I'm sure we'll cross paths again.
