A qustion that I have wondered about for many years because there is no question that many, if not most, poor people are crazy.
I became crazed once at the corner of Howell Branch Road and SR-436 when I attempted to use the marked crosswalk there. Cars turning right on green refused to let me cross until I acted like a crazy person (act the fool, as it were) screaming and yelling at them, literally jumping up and down, pointing at the light, the walk signal and the crosswalk until finally a fellow stopped and let me cross, giving me a smile and a wave, which I returned.
Lest you think the other drivers were just clueless fools, I must report that some pretended not to see me and the others saw me trying to cross, jutted their jaw and gunned the gas.
I complained to Mighk, who launched an investigation as to whether it was an engineering problem, but it wasn’t, so the complaint went on to the Casselberry Police Department, who sent me a very nice email, but no action has been taken that I can see.
One more lesson that the minority gets little, if any attention. And if I deserve so little attention, I sure wish these people would pay my $5,000 a year property tax bill, ’cause I sure get tired of paying a larger tax bill than my neighbors and being mistreated to boot.
