While driving yesterday evening at twilight, a pedestrian cloaked in a blue hoodie, face obscured, promenaded herself into and across a busy intersection without even a glance to check if, maybe, she might be stepping into harm’s way. She simply expected everyone to see her and stop, regardless of how much she blended with the pavement and encompassing darkness or how close their car was to where she unexpectedly launched herself into the street. RUDE. And dangerous. She could very well have wound up gravely injured or dead while ruining the life of whoever could have hit her.
I have a low tolerance for attitudes of entitlement.
