We needed some extra fence, so while Isaac worked, I ran out to get some. Cut to me pulling in at Lowe's. I was rocking out to Paula & Karol and generally just enjoying being out of the house. The entrance to Lowe's could be, for a first-time visitor, briefly confusing. Directly in front of the entrance is the loading area, and the roadway curves in front of it. It looks like this:
I followed in this blue Lexus SUV, and he drove straight in to the loading area. No big deal - I assumed he was picking something up. I continued on around the road, but when I came to the other side of the loading area, I noticed something off the passenger side of the car. That SUV was coming straight through the loading area - and straight for my car! I hit my gas, he hit his brake, and we didn't collide. Whew. I was going to brush it off as a silly mistake on his part, until I glanced in my rearview. (Are you ready for some Dooce-esque caps lock action?) HE WAS SHAKING HIS HEAD AT ME!
SHAKING. HIS. HEAD. AT. ME.
I have never in my life wanted to confront someone (let's face it, I'm a big chicken), but I really, REALLY wanted to get out of my car and (calmly!) explain to him why he, not I, was the idiot. I could not believe HE WAS SHAKING HIS HEAD AT ME. Hmph.
It reminded me of this print I saw on Pinterest:
I think all these horrible Raleigh drivers are giving me road rage ...

deck patch of bare earth and updated white fence!)
