To me, these birds are the true bringers of spring. Their squeaky hinge songs and territorial posturing will soon morph into all out attacks on trespassers once they have mates and eggs or chicks in the nest. In short, they will begin to show all of the symptoms normally associated with road rage and start pecking away at folks that are otherwise minding their own business. On the subject of road rage (pretty clever how I set this up, eh?) I need to go off on a bit of a rant because this evening I got caught up in a road rage event. I'll warn you here that if you don't like swearing, you should stop reading right now or you're just not going to have a good time with this one. Enjoy the pictures and move on to the next one so that you don't read something you'd rather not. You should probably have the kids go in the other room as well. The whole thing started just after picking MK up at work and heading out of the parking lot to get on the road to Petersburg. There was the typical Friday rush hour traffic but it still had not gotten all that heavy and cars were moving through the area at a pretty decent rate. To get to where I needed to go, I had to make a right turn out of the parking lot, get in the left of the two lanes available to me, drive a block and a half, and turn left at the light. I made the left and as I was driving along, a Mercedes came tearing out of a gas station on my right and cut across into the left lane in front of me forcing me to slam on my brakes. So I did what I probably shouldn't have done - I laid on the horn and flipped the guy off. As we got to the light and it was apparent we were going to have to wait for the green arrow, the moron that cut me off put his car into park, got out of it, and came back and knocked on my window. I was stunned that he had done this and so I rolled down the glass part way so I could hear what he wanted to say. He was a man of about 50 wearing relatively expensive casual wear and was of about my build and height (6'1" - 265) and he immediately placed his hands on the top of the partially opened window. My response was to roll it up and get his hands out of the car. As he leaned on my door with both hands the following exchange went down: Him: What's your problem? Me: You cut me off! Him: I saw you, I didn't cut you off. Me:Get back in your car, the light's about to change. Him: Are you in that much of a hurry that you have to honk and flip me off when I get in front of you? Me: Yes. Now get in your car. Him: You think you can flip me off? Fuck you! I'll kick your ass! At this point, traffic had cleared because of the green light so I rolled up my window and pulled around in front of that asshole and drove up the road. It wasn't until I was about a mile away that I really got wound up over this. The first thing that I had to overcome was the fact that I did not think quickly and pick up my phone and snap a picture of him and his license plate. The second was that I had not hopped out of the car and pounded that self-important asshole into the pavement. The final thing was that I wasn't sure that I hadn't done something that might still get me in trouble. To fully qualify my mindset here, there is one thing that you need to know. In Chicago traffic it is customary to use your horn and your middle finger (I call it my "driving" finger) to vent your displeasure at the lack of consideration or skill of your fellow drivers. On occasion, a hearty, "Fuck you!" is added as a garnish. The rule is pretty simple, you cut someone off - they flip you off. That's how it all evens out. Sure, I was probably not really on the right side when I flipped that asshole off. I probably would've been much better off just muttering something obscene about his mother under my breath and all would've gone smoothly. I admit to being adolescent in that way. For that, I take full blame. However, in my defense, a reasonable response to my horn/gesture combo would've been a return volley of epithets and gestures. But this idiot got out of his car and approached me in my truck. To me, this guy was looking for someone to take a poke at him and I have to admit, I would've loved to do just that. However, I had MK with me, I didn't know anything about whether this shithead was armed, and I really didn't want to lose my temper in a way that might cost me something I couldn't afford to lose. I mean, the dude looked like he might be a lawyer or have some on staff so I just opted to be a grown up and drive away and I fuckin' hate doing that. In my youth, I have had to fight a few times and I always managed to "win" those contests. In the last couple of years since Ryanne died I've had a real desire to have someone give me the excuse to hurt them but I haven't gone looking for it and when it has presented itself, I have opted to walk away instead of fight. While I'm proud of the fact that I've done the adult thing and not resorted to violence I stil
The Beast Within
Credits go to Muiz Anwar for the idea on this photo! Sit back and let me tell you about the inspiration for this photo.... As some of you may know I got into a car accident from this past Christmas when it snowed in Seattle. My car was demolished and was undriveable. So the running tally for the damages are over 11,000$. It's been over a month and my car will almost be completely repaired soon... except for one thing, the damaged driver side rear strut. For anyone who isn't familiar with cars the strut is a very important part of the suspension. It can make or break your rideability and handling and most importantly, your safety. Now the accident was the fault of the other party. Legally they needed to cover all the damages and restore my car back to pre-accident condition. I got a call last week from my autobody shop. They told me that Pemco will only cover the cost of the damaged strut and only an OEM (original equipment manufactured) part. My struts pre-accident were aftermarket Tein brands. So by replacing one strut and a different brand at that will affect my rideability and compromise my safety, not to mention that will not be pre-accident condition. But like the great caring people at the insurance companies they didn't seem to think that was worth it to pay out for. So I had to call and complain to someone higher. Here's the other thing. You can't just buy one new strut, they come in a set of four. That in itself should tell them something. If it was safe to just change one out they would make that option available. I would have to dig through a junkyard to just buy one. Now that would be unacceptable. Also, my vehicle is an all wheel drive, computer controlled suspension. I wouldn't feel comfortable with one side that is brand new and three other sides that are used with mileage. Even when you buy tires you still have to balance them in order not to mess up your handling. I can't believe that Pemco is so hard headed about this. And the stupid thing is that the autobody shop I brought my car to was an authorized adjuster for Pemco. The manager there was trying to tell them everything I had typed here and they still refused to pay for the other three. Now I could hire a lawyer but that would be even more expensive than just paying for the parts themselves, totally not worth it! So I really feeled screwed by this. It's not like I'm asking them put more expensive parts in my car, just the same parts that were in there. Now I understand that "legally" they are only obligate for one. But they are also "legally" obligate to restore my car to pre-accident condition. Pre-accident condition included 4 matching (brand and mileage) struts. So by replacing one it's technically not really the same condition. So, what they were telling me was that I was responsible to pay out for 3 of the 4 struts and the labor for it as well... for an accident that wasn't my fault. That's just great. I'm so pissed off!!! After a couple of phone calls the compromise that they offered me was that they will pay for all four new struts but will only pay the labor for one, so unless I install the other 3 myself I still have to come out of pocket for something that wasn't my fault... awesome. If I was Pemco I would be more worried that the repairs were not adequate to the point that the car is unsafe to drive thus compromising the safety of driver. And if I ever got into another wreck as a result of this suspension issue they would be liable and I would definitely be suing them. So that's why I'm a bit mad. Somedays I wish I could release the beast within and lay waste to my adversaries... But that would just be plain crazy. Thanks for listening to my rant:)
