An humorous response by a pedestrian to a dangerous SUV driver.
"With just a look, you said, 'I know you are in the crosswalk, but I don't think you want to argue with my 4,000 pounds of steel, rubber and imitation wood grain...'
Part of the problem, I think, is that word: pedestrian. It means ordinary, dull, lackluster. I think we might all have more respect for pedestrians if we used a different word or phrase, maybe something like, oh I don't know, 'American heroes.'
'Please yield to American heroes in the crosswalk.'
Would that make you more likely to wait for a few seconds and let us pass?"
