I was driving to the local PG&E office so I could pay my bill (I’ve been locked out of my online statement thingy, so I was paying short on my monthly) and I got to the part of the road where there is a 3rd lane that goes onto the freeway. I am in the #2 lane, and directly up ahead there is a Mercedes station wagon that is blocking the lane trying to get into the #3 lane and get onto the freeway. I go around him and pull to the light (there was nobody in front of him). The light turns green, I start to go but I’m not racing away from the light. He starts to pull back into my lane behind me and lurches forward almost rear ending me! So he has the gall to start honking his horn, races around me, and gives me the dirtiest “I fucking hate you asshole!” look, all while using his cell phone. He then proceeds to get on the freeway, the whole time glaring at me.
What a fucking idiot! Doesn’t he know that there are people that will shoot you for looking at them wrong? Especially in Richmond? Road Rage is a huge issue nationwide and has caused a bunch deaths, all of them senseless.
I almost wonder if he was just “looking down” on me because he thought that since I’m not white, and was driving a pickup truck, that I was just some idiot who was driving without a license, day laboring type. Not that they are idiots, but that’s probably what he was thinking. I still know he’s an asshole.2 comments
If you haven’t watched Rookies on A&E, I suggest you give it a shot. It’s an insight of what the Field Training Program is like. I watch it and see the way these rookies go through the motions of becoming a cop, the mistakes they make, the triumphs they achieve, and see myself and my classmates. Of course, the results are the same, some make it, some don’t, some just decide that this isn’t the job for them.
I do enjoy watching the frustrations that the FTO’s go through, although I haven’t seen anybody get as pissed off as my last FTO did (of course, it’s probably not gonna make it onto TV as it would look bad) but I’m sure that they do, it just gets edited out. Sometimes I can spot the mistakes that they make right away, sometimes it’s apparent later (not too often though)
Oh man…just stuffed myself with tuna quesadillas, derishus, but now sooooooo full , blech!
Ok, back on track now.
So last night I get to work plainclothes, which is always fun. On my monday I worked plainclothes and ended up getting a blue card out of my night. Me and my partner went and assisted another district on a attempted strong arm robbery. We ended up finding the guy, who was with a bunch of his friends at a house. Marked units were out of sight but close by. Me and my partner came around, walked right up to them and detained 5. The marked units then rushed in. It was…very interesting to say the least. All good though, it worked out.
Sorry for being vague, but of course there is always a good reason for that.No comments
