I hate when cars stop for me.

When I'm walking and the road is wide open and they have more than enough time to drive passed. I often purposefully stop so that they can go by without even chancing it and increase the chance that they just drive right on by. But, no! They stop and wait for me to walk in front of their car. It would be absolutely no inconvenience for either side if they had just drove by in the first place. Nobody would have needed to slow down or change anything and we wouldn't have any collisions.

People go out of their way, even if I go out of my way to make doubly sure that they don't, to make sure they have the most opportune chance to murder me. Maybe I don't want to walk in front of two tons of metal ready and able to crush my flesh and bones at the press of a pedal. Maybe you shouldn't go out of your way just to make sure that I do.

"Oh, a person is going to cross the street about five seconds after I'm long gone. I simply MUST stop and force them to acknowledge my ability to crush them with my massive automobile or they don't get to go anywhere!"

Wee bit ditzy and crazy, but it really annoys the crap out of me sometimes.

I appreciate it because they are building a wall of car to keep me safe.
