Mom Takes To Facebook To Address Driver Who Almost Ran Her Off The Road

| by Sean Kelly

A mother in Illinois wrote a brilliant response to a man who cut her off and honked at her at a stoplight while she was tending to her young son.

Jennifer Stickler took to Facebook after a man at a stoplight honked at her while she was trying to get a pacifier for her son.

“Does anyone know the guy that drives this truck? If you do, please pass along this message to him,” she wrote alongside a photograph of the truck.

“Sir, My sincerest apologies for sitting through the green arrow at 24th & Broadway today. I had just left my 6 month old son’s doctor appointment, and at that current moment in time he was screaming his head off in the backseat. Rather than inching forward while not fully concentrating on the road, I decided to sit still in the turn lane while I rummaged for a pacifier in my bottomless diaper bag located in the backseat," the post continued.

Stickler then went on to detail the other driver’s angry, erratic attempts to pass her as she tended to her son, saying that he sped up alongside her car and swerved into a turn lane and into oncoming traffic — nearly running her off the road.

“I wouldn’t expect that a GIANT A****** such as yourself would care whether or not I had my baby in the car with me until I saw your classy decal in your back window – 'Guns Don’t Kill People, Dad’s With Pretty Daughters Do!'” she wrote. “I wonder how you’d react if someone did to your daughter what you did to me, or to her mother while your daughter was in the car with her. I’m glad nothing more serious happened, otherwise we’d be having a different conversation. I’m going to say a little prayer for you tonight because quite frankly, you SUCK.”

Stickler’s post quickly went viral, garnering over 43,000 likes and more than 175,000 shares.

Sir,

My sincerest apologies for sitting through the green arrow at 24th & Broadway today. I had just left my 6 month old son’s doctor appointment, and at that current moment in time he was screaming his head off in the backseat. Rather than inching forward while not fully concentrating on the road, I decided to sit still in the turn lane while I rummaged for a pacifier in my bottomless diaper bag located in the backseat.

In the midst of your obnoxious honking, I felt my fingers grasp the pacifier, the light turned green, and I went – with you right on my bumper. This whole green arrow put an extra 30 seconds into your travel time AT BEST. Apparently that warranted your erratic driving, speeding up on the side of my car swerving all the way over into the turn lane of the next street and into oncoming traffic before correcting your vehicle and coming back over into the lane I was in and almost running me off the road.

I wouldn’t expect that a GIANT A****** such as yourself would care whether or not I had my baby in the car with me until I saw your classy decal in your back window – “Guns Don’t Kill People, Dad’s With Pretty Daughters Do!” I wonder how you’d react if someone did to your daughter what you did to me, or to her mother while your daughter was in the car with her.

I’m glad nothing more serious happened, otherwise we’d be having a different conversation. I’m going to say a little prayer for you tonight because quite frankly, you SUCK.

Thanks.”
