In order to get off of my street and on my way to work, I need to make a left onto Mass Ave. (where I do not have a light), which is a very busy street indeed in the morning. Because I leave pretty early though, I rarely have to wait more than 30-60 seconds to do this (I can hit the intersection between lights on Mass Ave. and sneak in between floods of cars.
This morning I was waiting and it took a little bit longer than usual. I wasn't in a huge hurry because I leave with plenty of time. I had been at the intersection for maybe a minute when the woman (let's call her Bitchy Magee) in the SUV behind me started honking like crazy. At first I just sort of laughed because there were physical cars blocking my path. Unless I were made of magic or in a hoverJeep there was NO WAY to get to the other side of the road. Nevertheless: HONK HONK HONK. HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONK.
So, even though she couldn't hear me I started yelling things. Mean things. Insults about her and what she does with dogs. I KNOW. I'm not proud of myself, but dude, it's first thing in the morning, let me get to my job in peace.
Nope: HONK HONK HONK. HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONK.
Ugh. This went on for maybe another minute, during which I see Bitchy Magee getting redder and redder and almost have several heart attacks in her car no doubt wielding horrible insults in my direction.
Finally I was able to get through and make my left, with her right on my tail and do you know where she was in such a hurry to get? Do you? DO YOU?
Dunkin' Donuts, right across the street. YEAH.
Well, let me tell you how terrible I felt for keeping such a delightful woman away from her (no doubt) six donuts and bagel twists and giant coffee coolatta. I will also stress that it didn't look like this was her first trip to Dunks. Grrrr. Grarr.
