Reasons why New York Sucks - Page 728
I was driving upstate yesterday and stopped on a county road for a schoolbus. The bus, another car, me. As I wait I glance in my mirror to see a 20-year-old in an SUV hammering down the road toward us. She's looking at her phone and doesn't notice we're stopped. I hit my horn and she looks up and slams her brakes and turns the wheel. Her tires scream as she skids past me and the other car to come even with the rear of the bus - 15 feet from a couple of kids.
I confess to having done this just to be a pita. For some reason, I am thoroughly offended by the sight of someone going along at 70 mph while looking down at their phone and, apparently, steering with their knees. I think it is the sheer sense of entitlement this represents that sets me off.
Anyway, I have gotten a lot of personal amusement out of contemplating the texter trying to explain the stain on the seat the next time they take their car in for detailing.
