Haiku Post - Painful pedestrians

How many times have you had to slam on the brakes just because someone crossed the road like an idiot, in the middle of heavy-traffic...more often then not  - it's a lady -  too embarassed to run in public, but thick-skinned enough to want to cross whereever.

And the worst bit is that unlike men who will scowl or even shout back if you curse them, women will break into a smile(!!!) when they hear the squeal of brakes and still continue to walk, without even lifting their eyes to see how close they actually came to being hit.

This haiku is dedicated to these multitudes of 2 legged speed-bumps:

"Woman giving embarassed smile,
If i didn't brake for you,
you would smile less."
