a punk chick flipped me off

Some punk chick flipped me off the other night.

I was minding my own business at a stoplight--behind a car full of girls--patiently waiting for it to turn so I could pick up the pizza I was headed for, then return it to my hungry Mr. Marvelous and his little brother who were hanging out at home.

Apparently, the height of my vehicle was just right to shine the headlights dead on in her driver's side mirror. Which evidently ticked her right off.

As soon as I noticed her place her hand over her mirror in an attempt to shield the glare, I thought, "Oh no. Oh, shoot. How do I turn these things off for a bit?"

You know, that'd be a nice thing to do. And, I like to think I'm a nice person.

I've never hit or cussed at anyone. I don't steal, talk smack to people, or use the express checkout when I have more than 12 items.

I'm a square sista. I mean no harm.

Obviously the girl didn't, because she flew the bird out the window as the light turned green and she drove her posse away.

For pete's sake. It was dark out and our windows are quite tinted. For all she knew, I could have been her little old grandmother borrowing a big, black Titan.
And really. Who flips off their grandmother?

P.S. That picture up there is the first and very wrong color--and the one that's long gone--that we chose for the kitchen we're remodeling. Remember what it used to look like? The painters graciously repainted the new color the next day. And I love it. Like, really love it. Like love love gooey love. Updated photos coming soon.

I'm looking for a new paint color for our kitchen so I can't wait to see what you ended up with..although I really don't see anything wrong with the first one.

I tell ya the world these's full of angry people :)

Your story cracked me up. I would definitely not flip off my grandmother!

Oh sweetheart! You broke my heart! I'm sorry about your experience.

(And the paint experience, too, I guess.)


Don't be sad.

OK, well I hope walked around with a booger hanging out of her nose at the party she was heading to and no-one told her.

How's that for having my sista's back!


I am excited to see the new pics!

Last week must have been the week for flipping off. I was driving into town and a car full of punkers were ahead putting their left blinker on at 3 corners but didnt turn at either. I proceeded to the right and oh!oh! out the window came a bird flipping off. So I prayed for them and broke the curse I am sure they spoke for me. There seems to be a spirit of anger brewing in America.

That's happened to me twice - but both times it was "grown" men in their 40's flippin' that finga.

You'd think they would realize that there are more important things to get angry about. Sheesh.

stephanie said...

Aimee' said...

That color isn't so back in the picture! But I'm excited to see the new color!

You should have turned your brights on after she flipped you off. ;)

Mean people suck. Some man in a delivery truck practically ran me into oncoming traffic the other day and I made a point to make eye contact with him when we ended up side by side. He mouthed, "I'm so sorry!" and I mouthed back, "That's okay," even though I was crying. I thought I was a goner! I should have flipped him the bird, but I am a square sista, too. :)
