The last two weeks, on Thursday, I’ve had the joy of seeing someone do something stupid and get hit or hit someone.
I’m not sure if I should be entirely excited about my new found talent.
Last Thursday, down at Yonge and Front, I was at a the intersection while all the lights were red. The northbound lanes got the advanced green and the driver of an SUV (ugh) went from stop to go. At the very same time, some jackass on a bike decided to gun it through the intersection. He got nailed (no injury) by the SUV going about 10km/hr. He bounced off, everybody at the intersection had a collective “ooooooh!” as if someone had just missed a near goal in the World Cup.
Since there were no injuries or damage to the vehicle, the guy was ready to roll until some loony chick from the far side decided she should interfere. I watched it all go down and she was ready to cause some shit. But, hey… everybody finally managed to get away. The only person who was really pissed off about the whole thing was the guy in the truck behind the SUV… talk about loose screws.
Today, at Yonge and Davisville some jackass in a car decided the left turn lane was far too much for him to handle. He gunned it into the right lane, hammered on his horn, and rear-ended a motorcycle who was stopped at, you got it, the RED LIGHT. Fortunately, there were no injuries again. Just a bit of damange to the car and bike. And a whole lot of other pissed off people because they were blocking the center lanes.
Why are people such fuck-tards?
