Whatever happened to respect?

That’s what I will title this, because yesterday my gentleman friend and I went downtown to take our coats to the cleaners.

We were parking across the street because there weren’t any parking places. We walked across the street and on our way over, a car pulled out and nearly hit me and the driver didn’t even look back. Some of these drivers don’t look before they pull out. It used to be that you could walk down the street without being afraid of being hit. Now, when you walk down the street, you take your life into your hands. Never used to be like this, but now people are moving uptown from the city and they’re in a hurry all the time.

Shame on you, mad hatter drivers. Go back to driving school.
