Craziness in Boston ... I just don't understand people, keeping those directly involved in my thoughts.

On a personal and closer to home thought, I got an hour ride in today, but was mirror tagged by some nut job driving a Cadillac Escalade  ... I was riding in the *berm* and still got tagged. It wasn't hard, and I didn't even lose my balance, but it was enough to fold in her mirror. This was a stretch of road that is 45 mph and I was trucking along somewhere near 18 mph, so lucky for both us, it could have been worse.

I got a bit of satisfaction when she had to stop at a light, I caught up to her and knocked on her window, she was like a deer in the headlights was strange, no facial expression, didn't even speak. I told her to be more careful and went on with my ride. The driver in front of her offered to be a witness and said the word "Ridiculous!", ust have seen it in his rear view. I actually hope she was mortified at what she had done and just didn't know how to deal with it ... this could have been way worse.

I added a "Dangerous Drivers" tag  ... I hope I never have to use it again. I've had several close encounters this past year, but this is the first time in my life I have ever actually been hit.
