SLOW DOWN woman! Sheesh.


I'm a bit peeved this morning. My 9 year old walks to school. She lives close enough to the school the bus won't take her to school so she walks. No big deal right?
UNTIL....
Mrs. SpeedyMomInHerCar rushes by my 9 year old starting out in the crosswalk.
*GASP*
SLOW DOWN WOMAN! Do you want to hit a kid with that car you are driving? And you wanna know what really pisses me off? She has small children in her car. She is another mother just like me. And she speeds around my 9 year old who IS IN the crosswalk. I was about 50 feet away cuz I don't walk my child all the way to the school. But I watch from afar to see that she gets across the street safely. She almost did not today.
I'm livid.
I want a crossing guard. Heck, maybe I should volunteer for the job. I'd flag that mother down so FAST...."There are kids that walk slow in the school zones. You have to SLOW down.....OR ELSE!"
I'm just peeved.
I'm glad my daughter wasn't hurt this time but I just wish people would slow down near a school in the mornings and when the school lets kids out for the day.
No ONE wants to see their kid hit by car. So if we could all just work together, and SLOW DOWN.
Wherever you are going can't be that important. There are small children in your midst. SLOW DOWN.

*This is a rant composed to the dumb mother who sped around my 9 year old this morning when she was in the crosswalk. I really wish she read my blog. Cuz she needs to slow the heck down. Sheesh. Some women should NEVER have children if they drive wrecklessly around them.*

Umm LEGALLY you could have contacted the police given her license and had her arrested. It is law that when someone is in a clearly defined crosswalk you HAVE to stop your car and allow them to cross. Not to mention in a school zone the speed limit is only 25..

I know I should have contacted the police BUT I didn't catch her plates. BUT next time I will...
UGH.

I'm so glad your daughter is okay and apalled that another mother would be like that!

Too bad that it will probably take someone getting hit for there to be a crossing guard. My wife is a crossing guard and she knows how that goes.

That lady needs to be imprisoned for reckless moron-icity.

That is so very very wrong.

You should get one of those crossing guard signs and stand there waiting for her to come by....then give her some kind of crossing guard ticket! That will teach her to slow down (or at least to drive down a different road).
