People who suck: don't stop for pedestrians

It is now common for me to approach cross-walks with apprehension, why? Because people suck. They think solely of themselves...not the family with a newborn trying to cross the road who's legal right it is to cross, that right which trumps the rights of the driver who clearly can't see said family or refuses to look in our direction as they very nearly plow through my brood...well wife and child. So I Herby declare that the next oblivious driver shall receive a b.o.b. stroller imprint on their passenger side door and hopefully a pant leg full of hidy-ho...of course Sarah will have to be holding Hayvn for this to work....on second thought I think I'll clap loudly and yell "Hey! Nice job! good one!" Whilst Higuera st. shoppers look on at me, hopefully shaking their heads at the crappy driver and not the chubby guy making an ass of himself by yelling at passing cars. The best part? If you don't look in our direction while you nearly drive though us, WE MUST NOT BE THERE! Can anyone help me think of a creative way to teach these drivers their lesson? For reals...I need real fun suggestions....

get a huge 'baby on board' sign and attach it to hayvn's stroller, maybe they'd see it long enough to realize they should stop. or you could just carry a tomahawk around with you.

how RUDE! maybe we should all wear bright orange safety vests. there have been numerous times that i have been crossing the street with noah in the stoller and a car just keeps on going. i always seem to have the urge to tell them what i really think, but then i remember to be an example, but sometimes i do wonder...wwjd? maybe he would give them an ol' swift kick in the side of their car. hmm...probably not.

since you are my "partner in crime" when it comes to teaching these people a lesson....I have a great idea. Let's walk down the street with a stroller and a fake baby inside, then let them hit it and start screaming "you killed my baby" at the top of your lungs. wait until they are out of the car and hovering over the stroller before you let them know you are joking...and then punch them in the face.
