Got my daily dose of clueless early today

This morning, I was stopped at a light on Woodroffe.  It's in a construction zone, but since traffic is only one way, there's not really an impact to North-bound traffic. 

Anyway, I had been stopped at the light for a while - probably at least 30 seconds - and suddenly I felt a jolt.

That's right, the crazy woman behind me (who had also been stopped - remember, I'd been there a while - suddenly rear-ended me.

I looked in my mirror, still trying to figure out what was going on, and she waved in what I assume was intended as an apology. I got out of my car to see if there was any damage, and she yelled "Sorry!" out the window.

(For the record, a shouted "Sorry!" is not the appropriate response when you rear-end someone.)

As I suspected, there was no damage, but in the meantime, the light had turned green.  I got back in the car, closed the door, and put on my seatbelt.  As soon as I started moving, she switched to the other lane, sped past me, and cut me off.
