So this happened yesterday when I was going to meet my cousin Lauren at Davids Bridal in the Quad Cities.
haha, I love that scene. “Towanda!” Its from the movie “Fried Green Tomatoes”
It made me feel so much better after I watched it
Alright, so this wasn’t my situation exactly, I didn’t smash their car. I was actually turning into the spot with my signal on and a little red car full of teenage girls gunned it and took the spot. I had to slam on my breaks. My blood was pumping. I wanted to lay on my horn, but in Chicago you can get shot for that sort of thing (seriously). So I pulled up next to their car, rolled down my window and yelled “seriously?!” (I know, very intimidating). Then I did what any responsible woman lugging two small children around would do, stalked them. Sure enough they were going into David’s too! How fun. I made sure to loudly express my anger about some crazy lady in the parking lot stealing a spot from a mother with two kids. Then I found her and blazed my crazy eyes at her till she had to look away, lest her eyes melt. I wasn’t scared, after all, I am a mom.
I know, I know, calm down Amanda! But road rage is a condition which seriously effects most Chicagoans, I can’t help but get fired up. While in town visiting one time, My dad pulled over to respectfully let a funeral procession pass and some guy flicked him off. See what I mean? It’s cut throat. So really I did those girls a favor. Hopefully they learned their lesson because if they come to the city and pull that business a crazy glare will be the least of their concerns. 🙂
