Car Pulled out in front of me

I was driving down the street today on my way to work and this white car is on the side of the street in the turn lane waiting to turn to go across the street. Just before I reached his location he starts to pull out. I had to swerve to miss him. His window is facing me so I would assume he can see me since I drive a red truck. Can’t get much more visible than that. I didn’t have time to lay on the horn, I had to react by getting out of his way. Has this ever happened to you? Were you lucky enough to get through it without crashing?

Guy Walks right out in front of me

pedestrian

I am stopped at a corner waiting to make a right hand turn. A pedestrian is walking down the side of the street and he doesn’t even look to the left or right, he just continues to walk right out into the street to cross the street. Meanwhile the sign that has the stop hand is red and he doesn’t even look. Pedestrians have the right of way, but you can be in the right and dead at the same time. I would never even consider just walking out into the street without checking to see what is there. What do you think?

Lady Smacks Dog for no reason

rottweiller

I am driving down the street and I see this lady smack this rottweiler dog with a leash of some sort. The dog was sitting down and not doing anything. She hit this dog so hard that he almost fell over. You could see the dog flinch. This would indicate that she had hit him before. We aren’t talking a small dog either.  It really pisses me off when people beat on their dogs. If she was fending him off that would be one thing, but he was just sitting still. I don’t know the whole story, but all I can comment on is what I saw. Dogs of certain breeds get a bad rap. What are your thoughts?

Why do people pull out in the center lane when there is another car trying to turn

This has happened to me more than once. I am getting ready to turn waiting for traffic when this guy from the side of the street pulls into the center lane. The tail end of his car is on one side of the street and his front end is on the other side of the street. In the meantime I can’t see what is coming because the idiot just decided to block my view. So in effect I am immobilized now because the idiot decided to cut the line. He can see and he can go, but I am stuck. If I wasn’t there already it would have been fine. Have you had this happen to you? What do you think?

Was Lurch from the Addams Family a Zombie?

One of my employees was watching the Addams Family during lunch and it got me to thinking, was Lurch a Zombie? Lurch walked around stiff, he moaned alot, and looked dead with his sunken cheeks and eyes. What do you think? Was he dead or alive?
