What do I do when this happens? I cuss. Like a sailor. 'TATTY' is the old retired judge who lives on the next street over from my house so I try not to cuss real loud because I'm sure the judge still has ties and I certainly do not want to get arrested for cussing out an old respected judge. But what I would like to do is ram the back end of his shit ass white van and send him flying through the air and out of my way.
'TATTY' drives anywhere between 10 and 20 mph. He does it on purpose, I'm sure. Maybe he does it only to me as pay back for my 20 year old son who travels like a bat outta hell on our roads, I dunno. (I've spoken to my son about this, Yer Honor, yessiree I have! Many times over! I don't like it either but it's no reason to make me late for work!)
Anyway, as I was saying, yesterday I got stuck behind TATTY and I was already running late for work and I still had to make a quick stop at the store before I got to the book store. I finally got past the old
"I am going to be late for work!"(I am smiling through gritted teeth at this point which is not an easy thing to do..)
The lady who was training him shot darts out of her eyes toward me.
"He..is...almost...done." she says just above a whisper.
Finally I am out of the door and at the bookstore. I am late as I thought I would be and there at the door is........!
"Young lady," he scolds me.."you are late. And that's not fair to your customer."
"Sorry sir. I got stuck behind a slow driver." I said.
"Maybe you need to leave your house earlier." he said, with a wink.
