Drove to work this morning, no problems, next to no traffic which was bizarre.
I work in a little business park which is within a new development. When you enter the development, there's a large roundabout, you turn right and then the entrance from the business park is maybe 150m up that road on the right.
This morning I got to the roundabout and saw some chick in a SportKA doing her second lap of the roundabout, while talking on her phone. No indication, at all, and I'm not sure that her brakelights were working either. Some minicab driver near rammed her on the roundabout due to her lack of indication.
I navigate the roundabout, and get behind her. She stops in the middle of the road just adjacent to the business park entrance, which tends to be a favourite turning space for useless people. I sit behind her for a good 10 seconds, at which point I decide that she has indeed stopped. So, I pull out round her and head towards the park. As I get most of the way past her she starts to turn right. I'm well past her anyway, so I drive round the back of the units and park the car.
I get out, and noticed she'd followed me. She gets out and starts yelling at me.
Her: "Have you no consideration or patience for people who are obviously lost"
Me: "Well you should have stopped and found out where you're going"
Her: "How dare you be so ignorant"
Me: "Ignorant? You did two laps of the roundabout without indicating, while on the phone, then stopped in the middle of the road, again with no indication. Driving using a mobile is illegal"
Her: "You've just proven you're as ignorant as you look, how dare you talk to me like that!"
Me: "Whatever!" and went into the office leaving her standing in the carpark.
The guy who works for the company next door was out having a ciggy while all this was going on, and he came round a few minutes ago to say she'd taken down my reg number and which unit I work in and all. She was asking him my name etc, he played dumb and said he'd only just started working there and didn't know anyone.
It amazes me that some people take things thick, when it's their total lack of awareness and driving skills that put them in that situation. She could have indicated, and I'd have let her turn. She could have driven past the entrance to the huge concrete turning area. She could have parked in one of the parking bays and talked to her mate on the phone.
