    Tim Murphy reports he was driving with his kids up Glendower Street in Roslindale around 2 p.m. yesterday when the guy behind him got horn-blowingly mad not just because he wouldn't speed up the street but because he then stopped for the stop sign at Kittredge. For those unfamiliar with the street, Glendower is your basic Roslindale side street: Even though it's one way, it's still narrow enough that you could understand if the city banned parking on one side, but, of course, it doesn't, so even some veteran drivers proceed with caution up it for fear of taking out a mirror, or worse.
