More pedestrians should adopt this philosophy: "I will hit your car"

From The Stranger

From the e-mailbag:

Subject: I will hit your car

Dear Seattle Drivers,

If you speed up and your car is mere inches from my knees, trust me, I will knee your car. If you try to fly through a crosswalk I'm about to step into and you then stop in front of me to look both ways, whatever's in my hand is going to meet your car's side door, trunk, what have you. You do not have the right of way, and if more people started walking the streets armed with pedestrian-protection devices, you might think twice before putting our lives in danger. You see a pedestrian, you stop. You can wait the extra 10 seconds. We however, may not survive your impatience.

Sincerely,
Aggravated SeaTown Pedestrian

I spit on the cars. It makes my wife extremely upset when she's walking with me.

I have finally gotten to the point where I remember not to do it in front of her.

So far no one has wanted to fight about it. I know I am too old to bother, but I can't help it. My excuse: I was raised in the South.
