The hitchhiker has no near-miss stories. We are disappointed. The frustrated woman is trying to reverse park. We film her to post on YouTube. The boss is watching us through the window. We hawk up and spit on the ground. That little girl has miscounted her pick-and-mix. We have money but can’t offer. Slow and begrudging, our cars creep aside. Our fingers are deep in our ears.
