Leslie's Omnibus

I, Heartless Bitch

Dear Lady...

... who almost walked your six-year-old across the railroad tracks while the lights were flashing, the cross-arms were down and the klaxons were louder than hell...

Don't expect me to apologize for shouting at you and making you stop. Did you look bad in front of your kid? Too bad.

It was your first time taking the train into the city and you didn't know any better?

GOOD.

I taught you both something.

That someone cared enough about your kid to make sure she learned that YOU DON'T CROSS THE TRACKS WHEN THE CROSSBARS ARE DOWN AND THE KLAXONS ARE RINGING.

You both got home safe tonight.


They never will.

Sorry if you're angry at me. I'm not apologizing.

Update No. 3: I take back the previous two updates. Not her fault. But the gates not working right are VERY unusual circumstances.

Stupid people shouldn't breed.

And stupid parents should be flogged mercilessly.

Y'know - it's always a good idea not to play chicken with machines that are larger, heavier and faster than you. Around here people walk into the street in front of cars... all because "pedestrians have the right of way". Good Grief! I stop and wait because I'd rather be late than be "right" and in the hospital. Good for you. No apologies necessary - you done great!

Pedestrians (usually) have the laws of a country on their side.

Cars (or in this case, trains) have the laws of physics on their side.

I know which laws have precedence.
