“I realized it was in fact a man on. his. laptop. while. driving.”

“Dear PoPville,

I (freshly-30 woman) had a mouth agape moment while driving into DC from the Bethesda area between 9 and 9:30am today (Tues, Aug 10). I looked in my rearview mirror at a red light and saw what I thought was a man looking at a notebook. As the light turned green, I realized it was in fact a man on. his. laptop. while. driving. I was so shocked that I switched lanes just so he could pull up next to me at the next light and I could confirm what I saw. He had the sense to at least look a little ashamed when we locked eyes.

If you are the young bearded guy I sent a scathing glare at while you were on your laptop in traffic, I’d love to hear your excuse over a drink sometime. I was the blonde woman drinking coffee in what is clearly her grandmother’s old Lexus. You had a Grateful Dead bumper sticker on the back of your car, which might have been a silver Volvo or a Nissan? I was too distracted by the computer. #onlyinDC?”
