I crashed into a dog :(
Tuesday, January 24, 2012
I was out rollerblading today to try and get in some exercise before my husband and I go out tonight. Normally I do class on Tuesdays but I wouldn't have had time. There's this park by our house that I love that has a trail that's exactly 1.6 miles so when you turn around you'll have done a 5k. So I figured I'd rollerblade it twice and do a 10k. There's a downhill part on it that's a pretty steep decline for someone on wheels. It's very hard to stop and it was hell going back up it.
While I was going downhill a group of teens were coming uphill. There's a line in the middle of the path so people know which side to stay on. All the kids got onto their side of the line except for one girl. I started yelling at her to "Please move, I can't stop!" Instead she just keeps talking to her friend who is trying to pull her out of the way. Last second I jump into the grass. But instead of going face first into the ground I ended up plowing right into a dog. The guy behind the kids thought I was going to run over that girl and moved to my side of the grass instead of the other side so I ended up hitting his dog.
While he was asking me if I was ok the girl turns back to me and goes "Watch where you're going." and then starts laughing.
The guy with the dog started yelling at her but she didn't even turn to look at him.
The dog was ok. She was licking my hand when we finished talking which is usually a sign that they're checking if you're ok. The guy was very very very nice about it. I'm really happy he fully understood it was an accident.
I'm not going to sit here and bash teens because I know more nice ones than evil ones. So I'm just going to say wtfrack is up with hateful people!??!?!?!?!?!?
Is it mean of me to hope that girl turns into an ugly and lonely adult?
