Hi! I tried to post this from the motel I was staying at but it didn't work. My cousin's laptop has fits.
As you may or may not know, we had a HORRIBLE ice storm on Friday (and Saturday, AND Sunday!). Springfield, MO is trashed. Power is still not back on for everyone (20,000 still out, down from 70,000). We are a federal disaster area. Not a tree in the entire city is intact. My neighborhood looks like it's been bombed. This is the first day I've been back at work.
During the storm, most of the traffic lights went out, which meant that the intersections had to function as four-way stops. My cousin told me this story about something she witnessed on Saturday. I laughed my rear off over this.
She was sitting at a very busy intersection, waiting her turn, behind a brand new Mustang Shelby, driven by Entitlement Boy (hereafter referred to as EB). There was a very large Dodge Ram in front of that, another car in front of him, and a car next to the front car. EB decided that he didn't want to wait his turn. He started honking. Relentlessly.
Cousin says she saw the three guys in the other vehicles look at each other, gesture violently and point to EB. Then they all three got out of their vehicles and approached the Mustang. Cousin rolled down her window so she could hear.
The three guys gave EB a very loud, verbal lesson on how to behave at a four-way stop during an emergency. Cousin said she could see EB lean waaaaay back from the window during their tirade. After they were finished and left, EB sat meekly at the light and waited his turn. Cousin followed behind him for another mile, and she said EB waited his turn at every subsequent stoplight and never honked again the entire time she was behind him.
It might have been rude for the three to yell at him, but considering the circumstances, EB was lucky he didn't get pounded! At least he learned his lesson!
