Give me the finger, I'll buy you a drink

An old lady flipped me off yesterday.  Like 80 years old old.  I did kind of cut her off but not really, she was at least 3 car lengths back as I started to turn left into the parking lot as she was going straight.  Both of us were going about 7 mph.  I stopped and gave the, "OMG, sorry.  My bad" hand and she gave me the "f-you" finger.  So I waved her on to go ahead and go and she gave me the, "Ohh, nooooooo, you're obviously in such a hurry, YOU go" hand.  So I did.  I turned left.  She kept going straight and was right behind me.  We both turned into the Starbucks drive-thru.  She glared at me in my rearview mirror the whole time we waited for our coffee.  When I got up to the window I said, "I'd like to buy the order for the lady behind me.  She flipped me off a minute ago.  Please just tell her to have a Happy New Year."  The guy at the window thought it was hilarious.  I told the kids all that had happened and William said we should give her a knuckle sandwich (thanks, Uncle Brandon) but I explained that that is now how we handle things.  Anyway, I hope that woman drove away with her tail between her legs.  Regardless, it was a good lesson for the kids.

I don't want to make a habit of quoting Taylor Swift but this applies and is a good lesson to live by.

  1. OMG - That is HILARIOUS. I work at a retirement community and let me tell you our seniors can be a little cranky - if you know what I mean. Anyway, completely LOVED how you handled the situation and congrats on being the bigger person (sometimes that's the hardest part) - Oh, and I hope she choked on her latte.
    Happy New Year!

  2. Taylor Swift could learn a few things from YOU .... BTW when are you going to Starbucks again? I will be waiting for the opportunity to flip you off ... :-D
