When it did I floored it, got ahead of the google family, goddamn, they even used the turn signal to merge in behind us. Maybe I should have slammed on the brakes to see if it would´ve rear ended us.
It wouldn't have. It knows you're there and will avoid you if possible.

That would explain why it pulled into Denny’s, it must have known I would never eat there.

Denny's is not a a place someone goes to, it's a place where they end up.

In 2016, a 23-year-old man died in the Lower Geyser Basin after leaving the boardwalk, and authorities deemed it too unsafe to recover his body, which dissolved almost completely by the next day.
