Hi folks. I had an incident today in which I was way out of line. I was walking home from work and two guys in a white Mustang pulled up from a side street right into my path. When I waved my arms and was like WTF, the passenger rolled down the window like I was taking his order at a drive-in and told me to walk around. So as I walked around, I kicked the car, hard. Then the driver got out of the car and he's like where did you kick my car? Like he's going to get me so I pushed him, he spat on me, I spat back. Then he threw a bottle of suntan lotion at me as I walked away. Missed. I lobbed it back. Missed. Other words were exchanged. Is it just me or is the world getting to be ruder all the time? If he'd have just said sorry I didn't see you or something. There was no question of right-of-way. I was on a through street, they were turning out of a side street. Any way you look at it don't pedestrians always have the right of way? I guess I kind of snapped because this happens to me with fair frequency. Someone will pull right into my path, either because they don't look both ways, or they'll just do it kind of slowly while simultaneously talking on their cellphone and avoiding eye contact. Or they'll do it dangerously and I have to stop or run into them. Sometimes I yell to get their attention, then they look at me surprised like I am the idiot. You know, what are you doing in my street? I got a two thousand pound car, you got a 30 pound bike. I win. I've been hit while riding a bike three times in my life. None was serious. I think people just don't get it. Anything smaller than you you must give a wide berth. I don't have a motorcycle, but I know this is a problem because motorcyclists have to follow the rules of the road. Walking and biking I stay off the main streets whenever possible, but this is not always possible. I mean, walking through a wide open intersection and someone pulls right into you. I kicked on the rear bumper/rear quarter panel/tail light on the way around. I don't think I did any damage. It didn't damage the tail light. Soft soled shoe. Maybe next time it'll be the pedal of my bike in the side of their door. I'm thinking if they bring their vehicle close enough for me to touch it, I get to kick it. I'm thinking I'll probably get beat up or thrown in jail. How should I have handled this?
