G.I. Girl

On the way to work today, I got caught in the SNAFU at the toll plaza for the Queens/Midtown tunnel. I was hit by a middle-aged woman whose vanity plate was the title of this post. I have no idea what she thought she was doing, but she collided the front of her car into the side of mine. She then had the audacity to try to tell me that I had hit her. I furiously countered that she must be insane to be making such a statement, seeing as that I was in lane and going straight, and that her car was the one at a 45° angle.

I guess between the other drivers yelling at her and the prospect of police involvement (this was a toll plaza after all) made her change her mind about sticking to that story, and she ended up taking advantage of the cleared up traffic in front of her to hightail it out of there.

One of the other drivers told me to take her plate number and report her, but considering the delays everybody was already dealing with, I didn't bother. Perhaps that was a mistake as all of my papers were in order, and her skittish reaction implies that hers were not.

So, if you're driving in New York, beware of a silver car with "G.I. Girl" plates. She's a maniac.
