I was on the northeast corner of the square, in front of U.S. Bank, a few minutes ago. I had been on the square looking for "Scene In Bedford" photos, but it's a muggy day, and most people had the good sense to stay inside.
I got ready to cross the street headed east to come back to the newspaper. I waited for the light, and when it came a car stopped at the light in front of me, completely blocking the pedestrian crosswalk. The car had tinted windows, so the driver couldn't see me giving him the stink-eye. He was pulled up so far that, in order to cross in front of him, I'd have had to get out into the middle of the intersection, potentially in the way of traffic.
He stayed there, and the light changed. Then, a county department head pulled up to the same light and did the same thing. He saw me staring at him, rolled down his window, and asked if he could do anything. Did I need a ride somewhere?
I appreciated his courtesy, but what he could have done for me was not pulled up on top of the pedestrian crosswalk.
