OK, this story is gonna be just like the “big fish that got away,” and that story where the B-52 Bomber supposedly crashed into Mon River near the Point in 1956… I basically have NO EVIDENCE! (except for this one still frame I pulled from the iPhone video. It’s kind of like my version of the Zapruder film…the ZaJagoff film.)
I’m in downtown Pittsburgh and, as I pull into a hotel driveway, there’s this guy (pictured above) walking in the sunshine, reading his smart phone, sauntering….with no regard to the rest of the world… right down the middle of the hotel driveway.
So I pull out the iPhone and realize I am about to capture a Jagoff IN ACTION and it will indeed be the bestest ever Jagoff post on this blog! I slowly drive behind this guy as he continues to walk while looking down at his smart phone.
I’m driving behind him considering beeping to see what reaction I get. Finally, the guy looks up. Looks at my ar then looks right back down at his phone and KEEPS WALKING! Never an “I’m sorry!” nor one of those blank “I don’t know any better I’m from Cleveland” looks…. NOTHING!!!!
Soooooooooooooooooooo I say to myself, this is classic!! Can’t wait to get back to the WJGF news desk and get this edited.
When I get back, well, this is where I become the… well, ya know…… cuz as it turns out, I had not hit the RECORD when I thought I did. I only hit RECORD for the iPhone video as I was putting the phone back down on the car seat. (The resultant video was total blackness as the phone was placed, lens down, on the front seat of the car and almost 7 minutes of a black car seat and us singing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Well, through the help of technology, I did spare the first .05 seconds of the video and got the above still photo. Yes, it looks a little suspect like most Sasquatch photos, but I swear, it’s him.
So Mikey Mobile, it’s clear that, due to the new Pennsylvania “no texting while driving” law, that you do not have time to read your stuff on the drive in to work in the morning. But how about a little common courtesy and common sense ? Go grab a Primanti’s Sandwich and take the load off and read your emails while relaxing with the pigeons sitting on a bench in Market Square! Either that, or just get into work earlier and read them at your desk. But either way, don’t text and walk in the street, Ya Jagoff!
