Here are the facts:
In my travels around the beautiful Garden State, I frequently travel across a rural one-lane bridge. A metal contraption with a narrowness that will never change because of its historical significance to some American Revolution-era event. Ergo, the bridge will always be maintained to this historically significant state. Steel beams and all. (Yeah, go figure)
Now there's the obviously problem when it comes to crossing a one-lane bridge. It's really a subjective matter as to who gets to go first. Every situation is different, but basically it comes down to basic manners, some patience, and the ability to put your car in reverse.
SO CHECK OUT TODAY'S DEBACLE:
I was coming off the county highway and turned onto the bridge and was head-on facing a geezer in a red VW beetle. We briefly squinted at each other from across our dashboards, and I swear, I think tumbleweed rolled by. (Well, fine, it didn't. It would've if there had been room on this one-lane bridge.)
So, gentle reader, here is my question to you:
WHO SHOULD BACK OFF?
The RED CAR (a.k.a. Geezer)....?
... or the BLUE CAR (i.e. Li'l Ol' Toni Ryan)?
Take a look at what DID happen:
YES!!! THE GEEZER WENT ANYWAY!!!!
CAN YOU FREAKING BELIEVE IT?
Luckily I drive a small sedan, and when I finally pulled myself together, I realized I had slammed my wheel to the right. So the only "damage" per se is scuff marks on my tires. Yes, we managed to fit TWO on a ONE-LANE BRIDGE but I am still in total shock.
What a major BLANKITY BLANK BLANK BLANK.
