Old Man Guilt.

I honked at an old man, and am still experiencing a considerable amount of guilt....

But....

it was legit. I'm really not a honker! I SWEAR! I really dislike honkers! But he was backing up and was like an INCH from me and STILL backing, so I honked (not knowing he was an oldy) to make him aware I was there. Then he went forward a bit.. and then did it AGAIN! But I felt so bad for honking the first time I just let him back.... granted, my hand WAS on the horn... and then as I drove past I was going to shoot him a dirty look (shows you what a great citizen I am... I'm glad I didn't get to giving a crusty to a real olds) and then saw he was old and probably a bit disgruntled with the whole 25th street parking issue.

And so, though it was to stop him from hitting me, I still feel it. That little pinch between my shoulders.... probably the fact that I was going to eye him as I passed is what REALLY gets me.

Oh, that old man will get you.

Sooooo - first of all. Don't feel bad. If he's that old that he can't tell when he is about to back into someone - he's too old to be driving...

Secondly - don't feel bad. HE WAS GOING TO HIT YOU! Heh.
