So I pulled up to this intersection the other day and stopped...just a little into the crosswalk zone. It was a snow storm and I couldn't see the lines very well. A woman, I'd give her around 50 years old wanted to walk across in front of my vehicle but felt my Van was impeding her way. So when she walked in front of my Van, she gave me both middle fingers and yelled out "Fuckin Asshole!!"
I rolled down my window to respond/ explain...but in this moment it all dawned on me. I was seated in a warm well-heeled minivan while this poor soul was trudging through the mess of a snowstorm down the unplowed sidewalk.
I said nothing.
But going over it again and again in my mind, I should have offered her a lift as she was going in my same direction.
