Had a rough night and a rough day. I don’t sleep right. Some days, I feel it more than other days. Added to that is a day that things just wouldn’t work right. I wasted so much time today and part of it is because — I think — a new part I was installing failed. I have already contacted the seller and am returning it to be checked/replaced. But, these kinds of days make it rough.
When I left for my appointment this morning, I saw leaves blowing off of a couple of trees. Autumn is definitely just around the corner.
About 5 miles from my house, I was on a “ridge” road where the road runs along on top of a hill. On the left is nothing but drop-off… and on the right are many side streets which meet it. As I was approaching on such street, I saw a large Cadillac nearing the main road. It paused and continued out onto the road without stopping; made a right and continued in the same direction I was going. Then, she just went the speed limit after rushing out like she was in a hurry. About a mile down the road, the Cadillac pulled into a grocery parking lot. I pulled in behind. When she got out of the car, I said, “You know….. you ran the stop sign and pulled out in front of me when there wasn’t a car behind me for a mile!” “I always stop at stop signs,” she said. I said, “You didn’t stop and I should call the police on you.” “I’m sorry if I offended you,” she said. I told her it was more than just offending someone, that it is about safety. That I drive a lot and people do things like that to me all the time. I said, “You pulled out in front of me when there wasn’t a car behind me, just so you could get here 30 seconds faster.” She put out her hand and said, “Again, I apologize.” I shook her hand and said, “Thank you.”
