When we we at the sidewalk sale on Main St this year, we had to cross the street near the police station, where cars had to turn left of right since Main was closed for the event. A lady in a car stopped to let us cross. As we did she yelled out to us "In Gloucester we say Thank You to drivers that stop for us". A tad off, but no big deal.
About a week ago, Ned, one of the paramedics I work with was arriving in Gloucester late at night to join his fishing partner on their boat the Fish Pig, docked at the Cape Ann Marina. He had never been to Gloucester before and was following his GPS when it told him to turn right off of 128 at one of the lights, which he changed lanes to do. A woman in a nearby car apparently had little respect for this driving move and let Captain Ned know it by yelling out to him, " Hey, nice fucking turn signal, ass-hole!" I Wonder if they were the same woman, or if some type of driving sarcasm is overtaking the local ladies of Gloucester?
Anyhow, I thought it might make a story for GMG.
