What to do when an idiot is up your tail and honking?

By johnboy 16 October 2008 42

So as I was crossing a road in Civic this morning I noticed a scene.

A block up a truck was trying to turn right and the traffic had tailed back. A taxi was sticking slightly out into the intersection so there was no more room.

A silver sedan driven by a rather stylish lady had done the right thing and not entered the intersection until she could cross it.

Behind her, another women (much less stylish) in a black car was banging away aggressively on her horn in frustration that the silver car in front was not moving despite the green light.

This went on for some time and the stylish lady resisted the temptation to either; get out and remodel the black car with a wheel lock, or to try and change lanes across the intersection to get away from the angry honking behind.

So here’s the question… Is there any series of gestures with which one can inform an idiot behind that the intersection is blocked?

Or do we just have to turn up the stereo and ignore them?

What’s Your opinion?

That goes for anyone else too

Ye olde colonial map … I love it!


I actually think the map was the least of the old girl’s problems given that she was parked at a green traffic light.

Given the current generation of street directories are probably the last that will be made (GPS in mobile phones to be standard very soon) it might be worth picking up a couple for their collectors value.
