Cell Phones Don’t Kill People…
OK, I have to type quickly this morning as I’m sitting in class and the instructor will certainly call on me for something – BUT I had to get off this rant:
Cell phones don’t kill people – STUPID IGNORANT DUMBASS DRIVERS DO.
On my way to class this morning I was sitting at an intersection waiting to turn onto the highway. I was a few cars back and the light was red so I knew I wouldn’t be getting anywhere in a hurry.
I heard an ambulance siren behind me and saw the paramedics pull up on the left side of traffic. Then they stopped… not because they wanted to, but simply because the jackass sitting in the left turn lane was on a cell phone and refused to move out of the way.
Now I’m thinkin’ how can you NOT hear the siren screaming directly behind you? At the 30 second point, the ambulance started honking its horn. How the hell do you ignore that? Sirens screaming, horn honking, ambulance DIRECTLY BEHIND YOU and you still don’t move?
The paramedic even got out of the ambulance, walked up to the car and banged on the driver’s window. I couldn’t see if the person was still talking or not, but would you believe that even after that they still didn’t move?
It was not until the light changed, that the driver moved forward enough for the paramedics to pull around them.
I tried to catch the license plate number, but I just couldn’t see it. I hope Karma comes around today and just beats the crap out of that @sshole.
