I enjoy my smartphone as most do. This afternoon a man was angry that I dared to cross the road while looking at my phone.
You know you have issues to deal with when you are standing in the middle of the road challenging a semi to run you over and a homeless man is trying to diffuse the situation.
SO - I can walk...on the WALK signal across the street while looking at my phone and WHO are YOU- person trying to make a right on a red to say I can't?
Blind people can cross the road on a walk on a walk signal. So guess what? I can too! I can look at my dandy phone and never look up and do it. I can be fucking blindfolded while taking pictures of your irate honking ass and crawl across the street! Sorry I am impeding your right on red - but do you see that lit up man in the international sign for walking? That is for me! I GET TO WALK before you get to turn.
I can do what ever the fuck I want in this crosswalk while that illumitaed man is up saying I can go and YOU right-on-red must wait.
Maybe I'm going to juggle. I am going to juggle as I cross the road. Is that going to piss you off?
I am going to create and then eat the most amazing ice cream sundae EVER as I walk across the road (time permitting).
I am going to bring my laundry and pre-treat any stains with SHOUT. I am going to SHOUT it OUT in the crosswalk. You like that better than me looking at my phone?
You into origami? I am going to stop in the lane closest to your turning and make about 10 origami cranes of various colors
Is all that shit cool? Great then....me looking at my phone shouldn't be a big deal.
