#18 of #365 – No Daily Picture Today

See, I was in Tesco, buying broccoli and tomatoes and a sammich. Waiting in the queue to pay, I let a guy ahead of me with his kid asleep in the pushchair.

Paid. Left. Was putting away my purse when I realised the guy was gonna cross the road in the most stupid of places – not at the lights, where there is a pedestrian sequence; not at the bollards where there is a safe place big enough for a person and a pushchair. No. He decided to just come out of Tesco and cross right there. Because that it mid-way between the two safe crossing places and man – that’s so fucking long to walk there.

So I got out my camera to take a picture to accompany this rant. Cos I hate that people are so stupid and reckless. Bad enough with their own lives but to push a child into the road ahead of you, or drag a toddler across behind you – I see it so often, and I worry.

And today. Shit today. As I took the picture, a car hit him. NOT the baby, fortunately. but he went flying, and the cars had to stop and he was crying out and fuck fuck fuckity fuck I sure as shit ain’t posting that picture.

So here’s a picture of a kitten. And ducks.

And it seriously makes me wonder how war photographers do it.

    Oh my goodness! How awful! Was he okay? I bet it really shook you up! You should send the photo to the police, or Tesco so they can help highlight the dangers 😦

    the car stopped, and there seemed to be no need of me. There were other witnesses – I did tell the police that the car just clipped him – he was half-way across the road when it happened. I think I may be dreaming – sorry, having nightmares about this – for a while.

    I’m glad he wasn’t killed though or the kids were hurt. Stupid, just stupid! You’ll be alright after a day or two. Nothing you could have done about it. Can’t save everyone.

    Ducks and kitty are nice though!

    A fear of your experience is what prevents me taking pics of people being retards.

    I was pretty sure I was going to watch a car drive off an ramp yesterday but they pulled out of the disaster at the very last second. PEOPLE ARE RETARDS

    Holy fuckballs! Only thing worse than stupid people killing themselves is killing themselves and the kids. Sheesh.

    Yikes, that is so horrible. I’m sorry he was such an idiot and you had to witness it. (Also, hope he’s okay, dumbass that he is.)

  7. Boston Margy says:

    Oh, God, that sounds horrible. The guy was being an idiot, but certainly didn’t deserve a reminder like that. I hope the baby was okay.

    And the kittens and ducks were fine, thanks.
