Horse 854 - Tales from Pooh Corner
A lady on the corner of Military Rd and Spit Rd was crossing the street this morning when this absolute idiot of a driver ran a red light and knocked her back to the kerb. Thankfully there was another lady on hand who was able to calm her down while I ran frantically back to the office to call an ambulance.
Through this event I've seen all sorts of elements of human kindness. From the chap who went and got her a cup of tea, to a few people who asked what they could do to help. When confronted with something like this, it's nice to see that somewhere in society there still are people who know how to do the right thing.
To the owner of a white, 2005 model, Mistubishi Lancer ES,
You are a coward, a cad and worst of all a downright nasty piece of work; dare I say it... a heartless bastard!
Driving like a crazed moron from the planet Nuff-Nuff is something I can overlook. Weaving in and out of traffic like a piece of thread in an 18th century loom is also something I can overlook.
A) Knocking over a pedestrian and then,
B) Fleeing the scene
...either speaks of your fear and cowardice or if by the bizarre and twisted chance you aren't fearful or ashamed, then it says more about your total disregard for the well-being of other people. Your details were handed onto the police, and I hope that you get a right royal talking to.
That is all.
