Honda Element on Fremont— I would like to retract the finger I threw in your direction, as well as the honking horn. I understand, upon reflection, that you made an innocent mistake. You did not understand that I was stopped in the middle of the road for a pedestrian on the crosswalk. Assuming that I was forgetting my blinker while waiting to turn left, you went around me. Luckily, you missed the pedestrian and probably felt pretty abashed. I now see that you were not the total impatient jackass I took you for, looking to get one car-length ahead by any means necessary. Clearly, I should examine my predilection for assuming the worst intentions from young men in big cars.
