urban vigilante

Originally uploaded by dieselboi.
today, when a and i were walking home from wings, we were 1/2 of the way through the crosswalk when the assclown in this car gunned through the intersection, swerving around us. he was probably 2' way from us. he then pulls a u-turn and parks. i proceed to confront him telling hime what he did was illegal and he was like -"did I hit you?" what kind of assface answer is that. i kept calm, telling him what he did was illegal and he challenged me on that stating he had driven a cab for 10 years. oh, and all the while, sitting higher in his seat. we left it at me telling him i was going to contact the police and taking down his license plate number.
we came home and i did just that, calling the non-emergency number and they were going to send an officer out to take a report. I then walked down, got more information about the car and took this picture. luckily, the officer came within 10 minutes and we told him this story. he went over to the restaurant and a few minutes later, I drove by while moving my truck to the back and his lights were on and the three people were standing by the car - big dramma and all. i hope he walked into the restaurant and pulled them out, fully embarrassing them and ruining their day.
in the end, the officer called me back telling me he informed them they admitted to doing what I said they did and he informed them of the law. he also stated that the drive was an asshole, but there was nothing they could do about it. i felt satisfied.

moral? don't fuck with me in my neighborhood. i'll make it worth my while to make assclowns and chuckleheads understand what they did was wrong.

This so kicks ass. You do what I always think of doing AFTER the situation happens.

I ride MAX every workday, and almost every time I get off the damn thing and go to cross the street, some empty-headed animal-food-trough-bottom-wiper almost hits me, totally ignoring the flashing crosswalk sign, the paint on the road, and the fact that I am one step into the crosswalk. All I do is give 'em my most sinister glare, sneer and all, and yell "What the FUCK?!" at them. I've spit gum onto windshields as well, but it never sticks. I've SO wanted to pull a paintball gun and splatter a few pellets onto offending cars, but I figure that would get me into trouble, and I don't need that shit for just crossing the street. I'm seriously considering getting a little notepad and jotting down license plate numbers.

What is with your neighborhood? My mother-in-law lives very close to the overlook area (just on the other side of the freeway). Yesterday, a dude drove down her residential street going about 50 miles an hour. About 30 seconds later, a woman driving a truck comes flying around the corner to go down the same street. Right behind her is dude. She's yelling, "Help! This guy is f***ing crazy! He's chasing me!" It all happened so fast that we didn't even get a license plate. Then, my mother-in-law informs me that she was accosted by some jerk, who called her a yuppie and basically spit at her. (She said that he spit in her direction...)

Good grief! I'll stay in crazy ol' SE, thanks.
