Idiot moonlighting as crossing guard at Bridgehampton Commons

Driving through the Bridgehampton Commons parking lot, you (obviously) always have to be on the lookout for pedestrians...especially ones who don't use the crosswalks.

I was driving past Rite Aid and a woman started crossing. Naturally, I stopped for her to cross. Then, she put her hands up like a crossing guard to stop me and started saying something. Confused, I rolled down my window and asked her if she was talking to me...

She says: "You know, pedestrians have the right of way, especially in this parking lot." In the absolute rudest tone I've ever heard! (and I've seen a lot of tourists act particularly rude to people out here)

My daughter, who was sitting in the back seat, and I couldn't stop laughing while she quickly and angrily walked away.

Come on lady! It's not like I hit you or even got close to hitting you for that matter. The "especially" in this parking lot? is really the part that I found totally ridiculous. Haha, What?!

  1. this is so irritating and a serious epidemic this summer. my favorite is when we drive thru southampton (even outside of the village area) and people don't even LOOK when they cross the street. are you kidding!?!?! it's just so entitled and rude. a little common courtesy goes a very long way.

    we live in the city but love the hamptons year round and are lucky enough to have a home to stay in. i can't wait until after labor day either. please go home, DBs, never to return.

  2. let us start running these assholes over. tuesday is finally coming
