Okay, here i go….well, I have a difficult time leaving my home. Yes, i am working on it. I am just curious….i really don’t think everyone goes through the adventures that unfold before me….Umm..please speak up & share your stories w/me….i don’t want to feel so damn alone LOL
The other day i muster up the confidence to leave the house. My son is riding in the car w/me (so i have witness—ha ha) A man is laying in the middle of the the left lane as if he was midway jumping jack pattern ..[.it’s a two lane one way street]…car in front of me goes past. I slow down & come to a stop…a huge (very) big white truck is completely blocked by this man. He has a bike next to him…but we didn’t see any car around that could have struck him. [Yes, kinda leery] I yell from my car window if he’s okay!?!? He yells back at me…go the fuck around his ass….ummm, okay? Are you okay, i yell again…he growls back at me more profanities & telling me to leave him the fuck alone. So, i tell him (bad me) at least get up on the fucking sidewalk, You realize you are in the middle of the fucking road right??? He of course yelled more profanities & i retorted…well, don’t worry the cops are on their way (ouch, right?)…..i did drive away 😦 how bad am I? i had my 16 yr old son in the car?!?!? I did not feel equipped to further engage the situation; I was obviously loosing my “cool.” We have a very high number of homeless and druggies in our area (sadly so) I had my son call 911 twice (the first time they didn’t answer after letting it ring 9 times)…as i slowly pulled away (i was in the right lane) i watched the traffic slowly go around him & keep on going as well….ugh….I just didn’t know what else a woman in my position could do ….to ‘help’ the situation when I was losing my cool…idk. Bad example for my son? Idk, he called right away….and reported and left our name & number of course.
Fast forward of no days going out…..
Now, today….I leave the house & a block down I notice a really out of place jalopy of a truck in front of me….I’m a good distance behind. Doing the speed limit…I’m good. Well, then a flipping 4×4 (I assume…it was bigger than a 2×4 lol) FLIES out of his FLAT wooden truck bed. I don’t know how that happened when it didn’t look like he was carrying a load of ANYTHING [I always make a point to see if the load is secured or not]! I didn’t have time to swerve (leads me to think; I was following too close— note taken) I was busy watching it fly….and I prayed that my car would clear it…the truck behind me saw it too & was swerving…UGH…right!! Me, a little frustrated go past this truck…not looking over & get in front…I notice, in my rear view mirror, it is a seriously old beat up truck ..like one you’d see in Texas Chainsaw massacre…big front end chipped up painted grill. Dirted out white cab w/an attached wooden flat bed and that god awful grumbling sound from the motor. Anyway, I turn off the main road & head to go get my eldest & we are doing errands (he’s running in…not I, I’m in jammies— That’s another blog!) lol. We are on the other side of town & low & behold there is that truck. Again in front of us. I tell my eldest about the wood flying out & he says go past. So, I do…right…and we both look over & this guy gave us the worst chills that I haven’t felt in a very long time. His hair was brown matted stringy, and beady beady black eyes, had that ‘I work w/cars’ sheen to his skin. My son & I stared at each other w/jaws dropped as I sped up. His face was seriously distorted. Like his nose didn’t fit. I’m sorry, but right now, I am limited in my descriptive wordage LOL We even saw him a third time on a side road about to turn back onto the main road, in the direction we were now traveling, as I was heading to drop my son off. But the guy in the cab turned his head right when we were passing. Weird, my son said…he must have dropped something and I said yeah but it wasn’t the same guy but same truck…he agreed….…we both were looking intently. UGH…lol We could tell just by the side of his head & hair it wasn’t the same guy….but just creepy….we joked about how they were fishing since none has passed down their dirt road…awful, right???
See why I don’t leave my house??
