Trafficking In Stupidity

| Friendly | April 25, 2015

(I’m on a road trip and have stopped to stay and sight-see in the University district. While waiting to cross a busy street with no light, a young man darts across the street from the opposite side, barely avoiding the traffic.)

Man: “You can cross, you know. Pedestrians have right of way.”

Me: “Yeah, but those cars outweigh me by a LOT. Law of the street is on my side. Law of physics is on theirs.”

Man: “I… never thought about it that way. Holy s***.”

(I hope he stopped daring traffic after that.)
