Walking in a Winter Wonderland

To the driver who laid on the horn and screamed at me on Main Ave Thursday night: Go fuck yourself.

Yes, I was walking in the road. Main Ave only has sidewalks on one side of the street. I got off the bus on the side without sidewalks, and my options were to A; try to dart across a busy street in the middle of the block in the dark, or B; walk in the street to the crosswalk at the end of the block. I suppose I could have attempted to walk along top of the three foot high half frozen snowbank beside the road, but chances were pretty high I would have fallen OFF said snowbank and INTO the road. So again I say, Go fuck yourself.

Drivers bitch and moan about pedestrians doing unsafe things, but most of them have No Fucking Idea what it's like to walk further than from the house to the car. And they have absolutely no comprehension of the fact that very often, especially in the winter, there is NO SAFE OPTION available to us.
