For some reason this won't post so I'll attempt making it a two-parter: I hate pedestrians and bicyclists. As far as the pedestrian rule, if there is ONE car making a right turn, it makes more sense to let the car turn first. As a pedestrian you have to wait no more than 2 seconds for the car to turn. But the car waiting for the pedestrian has to wait forever...especially for the many pedestrians who refuse to do the "oh hey you're turning let me speed up a little so I don't inconvenience you TOO much" trot.
Part 2: Bikers are the WORST. In my area, they LOVE riding in the streets like they're cars, whether there is a sidewalk, bike lane, or teleportation device made especially for bikers. Hey bikers: no matter how fast you THINK you're going...I'm in a freaking car. Get the fuck out of my way. And yes, I know these rules are for pedestrians' safety. I'm in a big bad car that could kill you, whereas I'd be fine if you walked/ biked into my car, and hey I'd probably add at most five minutes to my trip from waiting for you and the associated missed lights, what's the emergency, blah blah blah.... But screw you, pedestrians, my time is infinitely more important than yours. Dicks.
FML is being weird my second comment disappeared. Trying again... Why I hate both hate pedestrians and bicyclists: Bikers are the WORST.

In my area they like to park themselves in a blind spot just under the top of a hill, and ten feet after that is a stop sign. Damn bicyclists get the fuck out of my way next time or I'll have a free red paintjob. They are not and never will be your roads, so keep your skinny asses on the side where there is plenty of room. I also absolutely love the giant ass packs of 20 bicyclists 5 people wide taking up the whole road. I enjoy counting how many points I can get hitting all the fuckers. We all know you guys like keeping in shape and all but keep away from the cars, kinda common sense.
97- well there was this one time I was driving and there were pedestrians everywhere in somewhere like Miami, on the streets...drunk. I mean they weren't even close to the Malibu club where you would expect them to be. I didn't give a shit I ran them over, how dare they get in my damn way, immediately the cops were on my ass, even more when I ran over a few hookers and an annoying tourist carrying a camera around his neck. My car was getting beat up so bad so I hopped out and jacked one from this annoying guy and the girlfriend did not leave she screamed until I ran it in the water and I presume she drowned. Then I completed vice city.
#61, I spent 5 years as a pedestrian, and around here, I didn't get the option of going before cars. People almost ran me over on a weekly basis. On a daily basis, people would stop for the light completely blocking the cross walk and giving me a dirty look when I went around their vehicles. I always tried to be polite and let turning vehicles go first if there weren't many, but there is definitely not a belief in this city that pedestrians have the right of way, so that may just have been self preservation on my part.
Poor you I bet you were really traumatized by something that happens to almost everybody.
You're kidding, right? The point of this FML is that OP got a rude gesture because OP thanked her for letting her pass. Not every FML is the "life-destroying", "traumatizing" kind. It's more like funny anecdotes about how life just flip us the bird once in a while, like that driver.
Chill out! Everyone has those days where they can't help being in shitty moods. How do you know the driver wasn't rushing to hospital to see a loved one? There are multiple points to the FML. The fact that OP was flipped a bird, or how the driver was in a bad mood or even the way OP walked across the crossing.
Should have walked slower actually, just to piss her off more :). Then, drop your wallet and slowly pick it up. As you pick it up, drop all the spare change you have in it and pick every bit of it off the street. Then, finally, finish crossing the street and flip back the middle finger at her :)!!!
Llama_Face89, you're an idiot. It's not funny to say you assign people points and TRY to hit them. My fiance was hit by a truck a few years ago while working road construction and was killed. So you're little joke isn't funny, it just makes you look like an ignorant asshole.
Thanks, it's been a few years ago, '06, but yeah, something that affects you forever I think! But that's why I get mad when people make stupid comments like that. Not trying to be a bitch, but people just don't think before they speak! Childish, not funny to joke about.
The driver's an asshole. If you didn't go in front of him when it wasn't your turn to cross, he had no reason to do that.
Don't make eye contact in the big city, it's a sign of aggression. Keep your eyes forward and look down on the ground just in front of you. You might survive that way. Also, no smiling. City dwellers think you are baring your teeth and will run over you pre-emptively.
