Put a bird on it
This is a new one. This afternoon a driver flipped me off for not jaywalking, for remaining on the sidewalk instead of darting in front of his slowing vehicle. I wasn’t in a huge hurry, so I just stood there, letting him go about his business. And I got the finger. I thought Portland residents were nice to a fault, but I guess I was wrong. I guess choosing not to cross the street while the time is nearly out on the crosswalk light is a birdable offense. Did I miss a lecture in pedestrian class that covered this? I have to laugh, though: I encountered the guy for only five or six seconds of my life, but he has to live with himself every day.
