Road Rage 2 - this time it's personal grrr snarl woof

Ok the other day I was driving home through my suburb when I spotted something shimmering on the street. It was a blue tongue lizard. For those not from Australia, they are a beautiful, slow moving, largish skink that actually does have a blue tongue. (look them up on youtube if you don’t believe me). Anyway I drove by the litte fella and it occured to me to turn back and put the little guy onto the footpath before an accident happened. I know! I know! what a big push over I am for native animals. There wasn’t any traffic so I thought I could be quick. I turned the car around pulled to the curb and was starting to get out when all of a sudden a white van came speeding around the corner. My heart started beating faster by now as I opened my door. (Ok close your eyes before reading any further if your a bit squeamish). The van sped up and I swear swurved at the poor little lizard. He was killed instantly. Completely squashed the life from him with a splat no less. I was shocked and furious. There was nothing I could do about it. I wasn’t quick enough. Some drivers are TOTAL ASSHOLES!!!. I even think that the driver had and inkling as to why I was pulled over. I didn’t get the number of that van either.
