Their dogs are always in the road whenever I drive by. I sometimes even have to come to a complete stop in front of their house because the dogs or chickens are at a dead stop in the middle
of the road. I honk to get dog to move. The man
will jerk open door and holler at me. Somehow he was able to have signs that say "25 mph" right by his house. Instead of the normal 35 speed limit in our little community. He lives a mile from our house.
So we are driving down the road and pass the neighbor who is going to the school bus stop (at a church). Our kids get dropped off at same
Place. We turn on our road and the pug runs right in front of us and we hit the brakes but still hit the dog :( It is half a mile from his owners house. I am very upset. I pull the dog onto the side of road instead of the middle of the road.
We go home and my husband cleans up our 3 year and I decide to go get our 7 year old from the Bus stop and for me to tell the guy that we hit his dog.
I am crying before I get there and when I get there, I walk over to him. It is before kids get off the bus. I am still crying. I walk up to his car and he says automatically "which one did you hit?" I say "the pug". He flies out of his car and starts screaming and cussing me out. He says "thats my wife and kids dog!" He says that he always sees my truck going about 80 down the road. And that he always tries to tell me to slow down. I said "I never go that fast down the road. I always go the speed limit". It's a curvy small road. I would flip my truck if I even went extremely fast. I kept trying to apologize and he starts saying how he's on the police jury and had those signs made and I always speed. I told him that I always honk at his dog to get out of the road and that I wasn't speeding. His dog ran out in front of me. He kept cussing and screaming and then he was like "fuck it. Just don't worry about!" I walk away crying.
His friend was parked next to him and as I walked back to my truck, I heard him screaming
And cussing about me.
I feel horrible that we killed that pug :(
