Last night I was on my way to a political engagement. I started the Stanley steamer, pulled onto the road and proceeded in a northerly direction. I turn a corner, enter a side street in which the road was divided 4 lanes with a concrete strip up the centre. I approached a zebra crossing and saw the pedestrian step onto the crossing on the other side of the divided road. At the speed I was travelling I knew Iâ€™d be through before he reached the divide. As I crossed the zebra part on my side, he reached the central divide and screamed â€˜arseholeâ€™ (I donâ€™t think it was lurkergal unless she has a potbelly and a beard, but hey, you never know).
My question to the riotact masses is â€˜was I in the right?â€™ should I have stopped as soon as I saw him step onto the other side of the divided road zebra strip ? Was he misdirecting anger after a hard day ?
Am I in fact, an arsehole ? Did I break the law ?
Or did I just act as I should have.
