No one likes to admit it, but we all have a bit of road rage in us some times. I am no exception. I was thinking today as I was driving back home from working; how much I really dislike some drivers.
What are you thinking when you get behind the wheel of a car and cannot even manage the simplest of driving tasks? Driving even remotely close to the speed limit seems to be a horrid task for some. How about the person who is driving the speed limit and then suddenly brakes to make a turn; but no turn signal. Can we say…WTF are you thinking? Are you trying to make it so I hit you in the ass-end? I mean come on.
I don't follow closely, I don't like it done too me, so I make an assertive effort not to do it to other drivers. So when someone does suddenly brake, I normally can "suddenly" stop without much fanfare, but you know, it is freaking scary.
I had an instance last evening. I am driving down one of our back roads (only 2 lanes-one coming and one going) and this jerk (he/she) pulls out in front of me. I guess this person figured since they are driving an SUV they have right of way? Who knows, I just like making ridiculous accusations like that. So, any way, I will say "he" just for the sake of the story; pulls out in front of me. Ok, I deal with it. Then in a 45 mile zone, they are doing 30 mph. Yes FREKING 30. Ok, so you can't run some one over to get them out of the way; but sometimes I do wish I could. They finally start speeding up and low and behold, they cannot decide which side of the road is theirs. Oh, come on people. Didn't you ever take a driving class or learn via pictures. Double yellow lines mean don't pass/cross over; dooh. This person is weaving and bobbing all over creation; of course while talking on their cell phone. Well, anyone with a grain of sense would realize, hey, I am in a large SUV, it isn't stable, and I could really get in an accident, maybe I should put the cell phone down and be careful. You don't even have to drive an SUV to realize that. I like SUVs, but not when an idiot is driving one. Okay, so now, this slow ass, pulling out in front of me moron (which I basically had gotten over) starts all this swerving. It scared the crap out of me. I backed off even more; still managing to keep a decent speed (I hate going slow, can you tell?) when they just BRAKE. Yes, BRAKE HARD. They turned onto a side street, no signal, nothing. Wow, where is a police officer when you need one. Oh, as my friend says; "pulling over the moms just trying to get to their new job and not knowing where the hell they are."
Don't get me wrong, I love our Law Enforcement. For the most part, they are a great bunch of men and women who risk their lives everyday too protect us; but why can't they be where I want them, when I want them to help protect me from strangling the idiot driving in front of me. My 2 cents!!!
