I'm not a morning person, not even close. The drive to daycare then to work is always frantic because evidently, time runs backwards in the morning..who knew? This morning, as I'm stopped at a light waiting to turn left, I hear honking just as my light changes. I look over next to me and there is this man in a truck pointing at my car. Admittedly, it's early, I'm not at my brightest, but I don't get what he's saying. He continues to speak to me through his window with cars piling up behind us. I finally get the bright idea to roll mine down because he might be telling me that I ran over a small child and am at this moment pulling the toddler along behind me....one never knows when one might commit vehicular assault in the morning unawares...I mean, I haven't had coffee yet, it could've happened.
So I get my window down and make the universal gesture for "HUH??" and he says something else, gestures wildly at my car and then leaves.
Yes, you heard me, he leaves.
So now, not only did I miss my light, opened my window to a stranger, but am left here, idling, wondering what the hell is attached to my vehicle and should I move it.
Well, the car behind me helped with the moving decision and I take my left and pull over asap to assist whatever small being I may have mauled.
There is nothing....I repeat...NOTHING. No flat tire, no seatbelt hanging out my door making pretty sparks, no small child shrieking for me to "for the love of GOD" stop pulling them along..NOTHING.
I'm a bit deflated here, I mean, I was expecting something to be wrong.
Most people don't pull up next to you honking and wildly gesticulating unless you have something wrong...or perhaps, done something wrong.
So I get back into my vehicle and rehash the morning drive. I dropped Kendell off at daycare and took my usual route to the street this man decided to befuddle me on. I wasn't speeding (surprising I know) didn't cut anyone off (this morning at least), brake lights are working...I'm confused.
I'm left with the conclusion that this man thinks I did something but didn't have the big hanging ones to say it to my rolled down window.
I'm betting he wouldn't have put on such a show if I were a man. What do you think??

Of course he's a crazed motorist. and of course he wouldn't have done it if you were a guy. I am sure of it. I've only been doing auto accident law for 17 years now....nothing surprises me anymore! Michele sent me.

He was probably choking and needed the Heimlich maneuever. When you didn't respond, he drove off to someone who would help him.
People are weird. Keep the doors locked and the windows shut.

Those are the kinda people that hear voices in their head.
Or he drank cool aid for breakfast and just needs to chill out.
