People are crazy drivers here in Calgary. i was trying to enter the traffic circle the other day & i guess the person behind me thought i missed a good opportunity at rush hour when it's just buzzing, so they laid on their horn till i finally got the chance to go. Eeeeek! Mean!
i'm still getting used to driving the Silver Fox (the more i say it, the more the name sticks, the less Neil has any say in the matter... bwahahaha)
It's a big, hefty vehicle. Even pregnant, i'm not really all that big & hefty, (for all my whining about my size). i perch myself up high in that seat & force myself to be comfortable with my new wheels. Even though it drives awesome... it's really big... & our church parking lot is really small. i had to take Cai to drop her off on Thursday night - & there were about 4 million things going on, so the parking lot happened to be full. She had to run in to ask a question & then was going to run back out & give me an answer before i took off... i wasn't going to risk pulling into a parking spot & then having to maneuver around trying to get out of there... (did i mention that our church parking lot is pretty narrow? Someone from my church back me up in the comments section...)
i pulled in tight to the door... & she had just jumped out when a car pulled up beside me & an angry man shook his arms in the air... & then he drove around me, (as i had left puulllllenty of room...)
i felt like leaping down off my little throne & shaking my little fist in his window...
i didn't though...
but i felt like it.
When i told Neil this story, he told me about one of his mom's friends who pulled up to a stop sign behind a little old man. He wouldn't go, so she honked her horn... time passed & he still wouldn't go - so, she honked her horn again... he went... & promptly got in a car accident.
Neil said she felt like a real winner.
So, i will try to be Christian & not shake my fist (it would just make Neil laugh if i did...) & i'm gonna try to have a little grace for other drivers out there in this crazy city as we face another winter together.
