Today crossing the street with toddler in tow, a lady pulled her car right over the crosswalk, past the second line of the cross walk.  There was no way around the back of her car because of snowbanks, and to go infront I would have to walk into heavy traffic (she was that far out).

I waited a moment, most drivers will pull back to let you by.  She made an annoyed gesture with her hand for me to go around.  I made a hand gesture for her to move back.

She flipped me the middle finger!

I yelled (so she could hear, not getting all mad though) "move back off the cross walk"  There was NO ONE behind her.

She rolled down her window and shouted "Go fuck yourself!"

I had to back to the other side of the crosswalk because I couldn't get by.  As she drove away, she held her middle finger out her window at me.

WTH?

I don't drive, but I know that pedestrians have right of way on a crosswalk, and that you aren't supposed to go over the line, let alone both lines forcing pedestrians into traffic.

I'm sorry. You should feel sorry for her to and hope she feels better and no one else sets her off for something legitimate because as a pedestrian cross walk is there for you.

Yep I think I would have stood right smack in front of her car and started taking pictures. What a bitch!

That's shitty. It happens here sometimes, too. People suck. My husband takes the kids and dog for a walk almost every day and encounters assholes like that on occassion.

I want to go to a party with Jennifer, just to make observations.
