Today on my way to work, I saw some guy totally lose his shit for what appeared to be a very minor reason, and then lay on his horn at the car in front of him for (I'm not exaggerating) at least one minute. Afterwards, I wonder if he felt like this guy:
I yelled at some delivery guy because he asked me to move my car. I was parked in a loading zone, but I didn't care; I yelled right back at him. We both got out of our vehicles and approached one another. He pointed to the sign, which clearly stated it was a loading zone… and I pointed to nothing. I had not a leg to stand on, but that didn't deter me from demeaning the guy. I told him to ask me nicely and say please, otherwise he'd have to call a cop. He looked a me and probably thought I was an asshole (which I was being) and just gave in… I'm sure he was too busy for my shit. He said please and I told him to "go back to fucking work loading those boxes" as he walked away and I moved my car. I feel like shit now.
People make mistakes. So let's all make a concerted effort to lay off our horns and lay off the yelling when someone makes a goof that we could've easily made ourselves. But if you can't? Tell us about it in the I, Anonymous Blog—where people should feel like shit, but often don't.
