dp passed his driving test last week,he's currently pootling around (under supervision of yours truly)in a 20 year old escort that someone gave us (no joke,it's a 1989 G reg thing) so,yesterday we went to homebase and on the way back he says to me 'what does this light mean?' and points to a red light on the dash board-so,i leaned over to have a look to see could i offer any info.We were stopped at the lights at the time and as i leaned over to get a look at it the woman in the car next to us said,really really aggresively 'have you got a problem?' so i wasn't sure i'd heard her correctly and said 'sorry?' and she said and i quote 'you are fucking looking at me giving me dirties-have you got a problem?' well,for the record,i wasn't looking at her,and even if i had been looking at her she wouldn't have been able to tell as i was wearing bloody raybans. Anyway,I said 'are you kidding?' to which she started revving her car (still stuck at lights at this point) we were sort of stuck next to her as someone then about 100m down the road pressed a bloody pedestrian crossing and again she leans over and says 'you've got a fucking problem and want to watch yourself' i was and a bit peed off as a) i had done nothing b) the sheer aggression was almost palpable c)I had 2 kids in the car... as she burned off (Again,far too fast and really aggressively)i spotted that she too had a baby in the back of her car-so,if you are here, black ford focus driver and mother of 'princess Ava-Lilly' (as the car had a little sign in the back with that name on it) you really really really need to get some help for your rage and your issues. I am still agog!
light was a little spring thing with a picture of a radiator behind it...i am not the most technical to be fair. i did say to dp,when she'd gone and i'd begun my rant 'was she waiting for me to drag her out of the car by her hair extensions for a cat fight in the middle of fucking washway road???' *if i had my money would have been on me btw as i've got an unfair weight advantage on most at the moment-am off to fat club tonight to see how much damage my pigging out has done*
i had to illustrate that we are not flash or given to 'road superiority' and weren't looking down on her from our spanking new range rover.. and the raybans i got for my birthday last year-they were an hundred quid and i will have them for the next 10 years...until i sit on them/lose them etc etc. he got me some for mine,i got him some for his birthday,When you are as skint as we are (and that's very by the way) it's nice to have something nice. Does your g reg smell of mildew? ours does...! PS i am laughing at this as my work car was an audi and current car is older than the first one i ever had than when i passed my test-it seems funny how we've regressed financially!
I had aone of those moments yesterday - Asian bloke got out of his car, as I hadn't reversed fast enough to let him through - although he was in the wrong - and said he was going to punch me, so I called him an arrogant c*' and suggested he do so, to whcih he called me a bitch and got back in his wankmobile. Not nice when things like that happen though
These bloomin raybans were about £100 too ds thinks hes v cool and was shaking with excitement when he got them (early as i cannot keep secrets .
And Rosie doesnt smell of anything as she is lovingly cleaned and pampered by dh regularly we have had her so long everytime she gets 'ill' (she has a big history of time spent at the garage)even the mechanics call her by name!!
tbh i thought that when i read it,if she'd said 'blonde haired woman' or 'ginger woman' i guess we'd be wondering the relevance of that and as i've said many times to many people skin colour is as relevant as hair colour. unless she thought that due to his race he isn't entitled to be a hideous bully and that that is merely the preserve of the white person to be vile! *this is a tad tongue in cheek*
For goodness sake. he was asian, my car is red, his car was dark green, the road was grey. A car behind me was black (or should that be 'non-white) and driven by a young man of caucasian origin. There were people of varying races, ages, genders, and possiblity sexual orientations, on the path.
I have no idea why I said he was Asian. But he was. Big apologies for my clear sub-conscious rasicm
