The complete idiot... er, jogger... who ran out in front of my car a few minutes ago must've thought *she* was. And I'm convinced that her stupidity took just about 10 years off of my life.
I was driving along a 6-lane road in the righthand lane (3 lanes in each direction) after picking up some Friday fun-lunch for myself and my kids. It was just me on the road, and I tend to drive under the speed limit when no one's around to push me, so I was going about 35 in a 40 zone. We came up to a green light, passed under it... and a women probably in her 40s sporting a headband and those 80s too-short jogging shorts stepped out into the road *right* in my path, about 10 feet ahead. I swerved the left to miss her, and SHE had the gall to give ME a look for not letting her run. As if I could have come to a dead stop in 2 seconds flat! I double checked and yes, my light was green; hers was red. The big red hand. Not even flashing, so I knew it hadn't been her turn.
So anyway, after I thanked God that there hadn't been anyone in the lane to my left, and after my heartrate returned to normal, it occurred to me that this woman clearly must have an invincibility complex. That or a death wish.
Either way, I'm glad I didn't have the distinction of showing her that's she's not bulletproof today.
