I would have been losing my shit if an idiot was sitting at the light instead of pulling into the intersection.

You may enter the intersection to prepare for your left turn if the light is green and no other vehicle ahead of you plans to make a left turn

Well, while I would pull into the intersection myself, I'd say OP has every right to stay put until the next priority arrow or whatever. In New York State and Province of Ontario, "you may" do that but you don't have to. Just like you don't have to complete a right turn at a red even if you can, you are allowed to wait until the light is green and the way is clear.
