Yesterday I was crossing the street coming home from the drugstore, and this guy in a van was trying to be slick and run a red light by creeping up slowly. This is the street I was trying to cross so I could’ve been hit. I shook my finger at him and started yelling “No, no, no, no, NO!” while pointing at the red light. He took this as a sign that I was interested in him. He laughs then says, “Hey, baby, need a lift?” He was old enough to be my father…ew! “No! But you need to pay attention to the damn traffic lights!” I replied. Man!
