"Screw You" and other commuter pleasantries
Despite my MIA status as of late, I wanted to tell you a funny little mishap I witnessed this morning .
Walking across Mass and 18th, I was pausing to grab my WaPo Express, and as the light is changing, I see a guy walking a little slow through the crosswalk. He was about four feet from the curb and the light had turned green for cross traffic. Then a red car gives him the horn. The guy, who looks like a fairly normal morning commuter, suddenly screams "SCREW YOU" and hurls his Grande Starbucks coffee all over the side of the car. The remaining people in the crosswalk stand there stunned.
As a walker in this fine city, I respect his ‘tude and salute his “I’m not taking your shit” perspective at 8:30 in the morning.
