What's with my happy city today?
1. Today, I witnessed a homeless man wander onto a busy downtown street and almost get hit by a streetcar. The streetcar came to a screeching halt and then the homeless man walked into the side of it. He started shouting obscenities and then tried to reach into the window and hit the driver. (Okay, weird, but stuff happens in a big city).
2. Later on, a bike messenger rear-ends a lady on another bike and starts yelling at her. I heard her say, "You were scaring me so I pulled over to let you pass". He kept shouting at her, so a cab driver got out of his car to defend the woman. The man started yelling at the cabby and punched his door. (So now, I'm wondering if there's a full moon).
3. Part three - I'm walking home and I see a car backing out of a driveway. The car is stopped waiting for a roller-blader to skate passed, but Doh! Skaterboy stops himself on her bumper despite having lots of room and time to skate around. He bangs the trunk of the car a few times and yells a few obscenities. (WTF???)
4. Massive pile-up on the 400 northbound today (second in as many days which is strange in itself) --- lanes blocked for hours! A few people killed; a few racers arrested. Horrible tragedy on its own, but 2 kms back in the jam, a motorist is stabbing a driver in another vehicle?!!??!??!
WTF Toronto? I live in one of the safest cities in the world. What gives?
That's my rant. Thanks for listening.
