I know it’s wrong to want to hit people with your car, but I was sitting at a stop sign waiting to go through an intersection when I stopped to let a couple in their 30s cross the street. They were both decked out in workout gear, and the woman was pushing a baby stroller. They were arguing about something, and while I couldn’t hear a word, I’d seen enough women give me that look like, “What the fuck are you talking about?” to know what she was trying to communicate to her husband.
I couldn’t help it, I stared at them as they walked past my car. The woman saw me staring and she stared back.
And she never would’ve guessed what was going through my mind, which was that I know it’s wrong to want to hit people with your car, but that I probably could save them a whole lot of pain and suffering had I just run ‘em both over.
(Don’t worry, in this alternate universe, I would’ve made sure the baby was safely out of the way first.)
