In retrospect, I should have been further out into the lane.
Instead, I tried to be polite and let cars move up next to me, not anticipating that one incredibly impatient driver would deliberately right hook me.
She couldn’t wait two seconds — literally — for the light to change. And it was worth it to her to risk the life of a total stranger because I didn’t get the hell out of her way.
I don’t recommend flipping off anyone.
But this one earned it.
If I’d gone when the light turned green, I’d be in the hospital right now.
