I moved to Philly at 22 and really learned how to drive. Some bitch hit me last month when she was merging into my lane. She was going to hit me so I slammed on the breaks and hit the horn and she kept coming and ending up hitting me. When she got out of her car, she starts yelling "Didn't you see my blinker!? It gives me right of way!" I asked "Didn't you see my car? My car trumps your fucking blinker." I hate driving in Denver, especially the roundabouts in Lowry. Talk about people not paying attention.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
