How to spit on the windshield of the car behind you when you are driving a convertible

Driving back from Watermill with my daughter last summer we were behind a convertible at a traffic light.


Light turns green the man driving doesn’t go, so I toot the horn to get him moving.

He speeds off, leans his head all the way back and spits up into the air. His spit ball hits my windshield, simultaneously he slams on his breaks hoping that I rear end his car.

For the rest of the drive back to East Hampton, he would speed up then jam on his breaks.



Sorry about reminding you the light was green

Does exit only really mean exit only?

I was leaving a popular East Hampton grocery store parking lot using the designated exit (clearly marked exit only). As I'm pulling out a man driving a sports car comes racing in and we almost have a head on collision.

I press on my horn to make sure we don't have an accident. What does he do?

He pulls up along side of me and says, "What happened to you in your life to make you such a old angry woman?"

I drove off and hoped my son doesn't end up like him.

Oh I'm sorry, did I just knock your cane out from underneath you?

The other day I was shopping in a local East Hampton store with a friend. I need a cane to get around and without it there's a good chance I'll fall over.

While waiting in line to check out a lady pushing a shopping cart who was on a mission to get to the bread baskets slammed into my cane. I proceeded to fall over, luckily my friend caught me.

Did she apologize? Yes

Would it have mattered if I hit the floor? No


Slow down and watch what you're doing
