Today I was almost taken out by some dumbass in an F-350.... Here's what happened:
I was coming home from Borders after getting some last-minute things to read before I go on vacation tomorrow. I was at the beginning of I-393, which is a highway that just starts, if you know what I mean... I'll try to explain it better.. I was on Main Street. It's three lanes. The left lane turns left at this particular light, the middle lane can go straight, left, or right, and the right lane goes right. I was in the middle lane. So the light turns green and I turn onto the left lane of 393. About 200 feet down the road there's another light, for some reason. At the time I turned the corner, the light was red, but before I reached it it turned green. There were only a few cars in front of me in the left lane, so I didn't have to slow down or anything. In the right lane, there was a line. There was an F350 in the right lane going about 60. The cars in front of him had just started up, so they were going maybe 20. This genius just swerves into my lane without checking his mirrors or anything. This forced me to go into the shoulder, but luckily it's pretty wide in that part. I honked my horn to let him know I was there in case he did it by accident and hadn't seen me. THEN the guy rolls down his window and gives me the middle finger!
The sad part is that things like this happen all the time around here. The drivers in NH, Mass, Maine, etc. SUCK!!!
Ok, done ranting. For now.
