TOO CLOSE

i thank whoever it was that was looking over me today to let me live and type this.

this just happened

so i'm goin to school to study and do school work and all that , going down astoria the stretch from the hospital to the freeway (for my se folks) sp basically a 2 lane 2 way (2 lanes on each side with a medium median with trees traffic is light. i'm just chuggin along enjoying this weather and my ride and cars are just going to do what they do.


1/2 mile or so down i had this sudden urge to look at the car in the opposite lane. looking at it i see that it slows down with blinker to turn left. so im like ok...

split second later i see it start crossing with me coming at it in (my side) left lane. i say o chit fack , swerve over to right lane and just jerk the goose hoping that i can shoot the closing gap cuz there is not enough time or distance to stop.

another millisecond later and i am in the right portion of my lane with a handful of throttle and my head starts a video of the worst case scenario.

BUT wait what is this? the stupid hoe see me and stops, and i escape just in time... feeling like nick cage after he jumped elanor in gone in 60 seconds. eyes wide open like

so i say screw this, flip a hoe and chase it to give this cage a piece of my mind. i come up to it and see this mid 20's/30s maybe looking white woman smoking a cig and some passenger. she goes "im so sorry" me "WTF is wrong with u? u could have killed me" her: "more apologies. that car was on my " me: and take off

yes i did

get to school chill down, type this and maybe i can get my done


o yea forgot cliffs for u lazy mofos.

-going to school chuggin along road
-looks at a car to find that its turning while imcoming strait at it
-swerve and throttle hoping for best
-stupid hoe sees me and stops just in time
-bust a U and chase it, give her a piece of my mind
-go to school to get edumacation

4 stars

nice rant, well written glad your ok....learn what you can from it & try not to flip the bird so much, some folks are really crazy around here.

Also, welcome to Houston on a MC At least she wasn't reading and smoking. I never understand the reading...book or news paper on the wheel...

Hi-Viz is your friend.... Pick up a ANSI road worker vest with the wide reflective strips. Should cost about $15-$20.

Yea, I know exactly where you were. SE person here. Well, former SE.

I am assuming it was the residential area with all the houses.

Glad that you got out of the situation unscathed. Stay frosty.

.. I think today is one of those days...

No 'close call', but annoyed me. Pull up to a 4 way stop...

n/s are 2 lanes... east/west is a boulevard, but 4 way stop sign.
Car and truck are at the sign going east, as I stop.. a truck going west stops same time as I am (im going N, turning to go west) See another truck coming up behind the first on the west bound.

East/West car and trucks clear, it's my turn... and as I'm 1/2 to the center. The second west bound truck decides it's time to go... a rolling stop and never bothers to see if he's clear. Highbeams and horn as I slow down so we don't 'meet' each other in the intersection... gonna have to start runnuign with my lil camcorder again.
