lexus: driving you to treadmill

i walk a lot. i lose track, really. four, six miles a day.
i've destroyed a pair of merrills in about three or four
months.

most people i encounter, by and large normal. but some are
absolutely ridic. you cross the street to my side of the
street and then either get huffy or have an anxiety attack
when i do not move out of your way. you have a baby carriage
and so it is your god-given right to run me off the
sidewalk. it even gets pretty cringe-y, one lady literally
cowered like i'd been saying "ni" at her. i'd been paying
attention to her dog, a seemingly standard german shepherd.
they can be very nice social dogs or also very one-person,
bite-you-if-i-don't-know-ya dogs. dog is chill. he's
interested in me, but not alarmed. i smile. then i look over
and notice there's a human cowering, ni, ni! on the other
end of the leash. probably genuine mental health issues,
that instance

but the drivers, actually, can be the worst. two
intersections, four-way stop. people will tap the brakes for
sake of form, be all "oh i stopped" and then charge on
through. i stop and look very clearly at these two. more
times than i can count, people pretend they didn't notice me
-- they did -- and roll through because they don't want to
wait. also very common, actually, is looking directly at me
with dead eyes, deciding not to wait, and then rolling on
through.

but then it's night and i can't see the driver. i stop at a
crosswalk. the driver stops. i have the right of way by law
and begin walking

at the same moment, he begins driving again. at this point,
i recognize it: he's decided he gets to go first, and he's
no longer paying attention to me; he's looking for oncoming
traffic.

this is obvious because the exact same thing happened a
month ago, during daytime, when i actually could see the
driver and read state of mind. cunt looked me in the eye,
stopped, i started walking. she's scanning for oncoming cars
and driving right at me and only stops when i slap my palm
down on the hood of her car.

both times -- and other incidents too, it's been the same
fucking model of car. a lexus 300. lady was robin egg blue;
this was white.

i was mad. i literally scream "what the FUCK" and so happens
guy has his window down. i have headphones on and he's all
dfhgjdfgfd something and i scream fuck you and he drives
off.

i've been waffling on this all evening: oh, no, i shouldn't
ever get that aggro. but, no, tit absolutely deserved it.
and i hope word gets out it was me so i can send word back
that i will kick his fucking ass if i even see him doing
that shit to anyone else, let alone me.

my point is: i'm sick of all this. winter is coming. i want
a treadmill. anyone know how to pick one without getting
ripped off? in the US?

lexus ads on npr all "a quality experience that is crafted
just for you"

but i'd like to remind lexus owners that, once behind the
wheel, they are expected to shovel the same shit as a pleb
driving a dump truck. america's roads, a former equalizer,
much under threat

i would not say you are necessarily an asshole if you drive
a lexus __300. it's more like a genetic predisposition --
you are not necessarily an asshole, but you are at least 75%
more likely to be one

i would never buy a lexus treadmill. what's good

detail is the universe, and thus, clarifications for my
stupid vent thread:

1) to be more specific, it's the lexus teardrop mini-SUV. i
think the actual model is rx300. it occurred to me there may
be perfectly innocent lexii swept up in my __300 definition
and let's be very clear, it is this specific flavor of lexus
i've learned to watch closely. the others, actually, few
problems, unless it's the lexus version of iron man's audi
sorta trip. when walking, anyways. i won't get to into my
feelings sharing the road

2) << he's all dfhgjdfgfd something

i suppose i failed to make it clear that he was obviously
not apologetic, and i'm glad i had noise-cancelling
headphones on, because his face told me it was something
like, "how dare you get in my way you little shit" and if
i'd heard that i might have chased his fucking car down the
street.

recommended treadmills?

next time i visit this thread i expect a neighbourhood watch
formed with timetables on your strolling times. and social
media warnings about a weirdo jumping n front of cars.

it's kind of the opposite, really. more towards the planet
camazotz. like, 8 am, avoid going out at 8 am. because
that's when all the really chatty people with the small
barky dogs all seem to have their daily standup meeting and
there are a lot of them to dodge. it's a crisp enough thing
that i remember rushing out at 7:50a last week, shit shit
it's almost 8! see no one... then i'm crossing the street
back to my driveway, and there are people in every
direction. i was kind of expecting that i was just imagining
it all and there'd be no real noticeable anything; that i'd
get home and chide myself for getting so worked up over some
abstract pattern i'd decided was present. but then i was
right, and now i'm not sure of anything anymore
