Yesterday I was driving with a friend from South Broadway in Fort Wayne to Jefferson for a trip to New Haven.
We were way-laid by an accident outside the Whole Foods entrance. The car in the driveway was pretty mangled but there weren’t any ambulances. A man directed us to go into the parking lot. It was an exercise in patience. The parking lot filled up quickly. We were all trying to reach the only other exit on the far end of the lot.
One driver in front of me looked like they’d hit the end of their patience supply and rushed the car before theirs and braked quickly.
It was a test of anyone’s patience and I did ok. Most people were pretty civil about it all. The customers in the store were probably not impressed by the unexpected traffic jam. I let one car back out in front of me, but most of the others probably had to wait a long time to get out.
I didn’t think to get any video proof of the excitement.
The only thing I was thinking was, “I hope we don’t have another accident in the parking lot!”
