some questions answer themselves

Setting: Exterior, Northern Utah. Shopko parking lot. Midday in late February.

Scene: A woman and her older toddler are in the crosswalk from store to parking lot, walking toward their car. She is holding his hand and helping him to walk. A middle aged, morbidly obese man in a Honda Fit zooms through one of the parking aisles and turns sharply into the crosswalk. The woman and her young child are in his path.

Morbidly Obese Man's Car: HOOOONNNNK!

The question, if you were wondering, is: What sort of person barrels into an occupied crosswalk and honks rudely at the pedestrians using it?

Why would a morbidly obese person buy a Honda Fit? Clearly deranged.

Ahhhh!! I hate bad drivers - and WORSE?! I hate RUDE drivers! Truthfully, they really are the worst in Utah. When we moved back from California, we were pained by the mindless and/or angry and/or ridiculous driving here in our lovely deseret. Sorry you almost died in a Shopko parking lot.

Oh, it wasn't me. I was just a witness to the rudeness.
