So That’s What If Feels Like to Be Harry Potter!
Today I learned what it feels like to be Harry Potter! Well…maybe I wasn’t quite that cool, but I waved my “wand” and made things happen.
I live in a community. I know, I know, communities suck. Believe me, after five years, I’m finding that out. I’m one of those loyal residents that follow the rules. I don’t exceed the speed limit. I stop at all stop signs. I use my directional no matter what.
Okay, I know what you’re thinking. Goody two shoes right?
I’m not a saint by any means, but there are lots of children in our community and they aren’t the greatest at paying attention to what’s going on around them so I try to be vigilant like I would want my neighbors to be with my kids. We also have several residents at any given time out there walking their pets. But I digress.
So in the five years I’ve lived here and on a daily basis have grit my teeth when people speed, tailgate, run stop signs, etc. I’ve never once had security around to see it.
Fortunately, I have a pretty good relationship with the head of security who just happened to be patrolling in my neck of the woods this morning.
So, as I drove down the big hill with the water tower, this guy came up on me fast. He stayed so close I couldn’t see his headlights. At the stop sign at the bottom of the hill he almost hit me.
Bonus…he’s doing all of this with his kid in the front seat beside him. Hello! McFly? Your kid is going to drive the way you do! It would behoove the man to get his head out of his arse and have more care.
Clearly, he assumed I would roll through the stop sign. Yeah, not going to happen. So as he followed me around the corner, I see the chief of security sitting in his car at a cross street.
Fed up and wanting to choke the guy out I pointed my index finger at the chief and then pointed behind me. My jaw dropped when he actually pulled out behind the guy tailgating me, switched his lights on, and pulled his lame arse over.
So this is what it feels like to have super powers!
…time for me to buy myself a super cool wand to carry in my RAV!
