Gripe of the Day
Road Rage


I have zero tolerance for bad drivers. If you can't drive, I will probably flip you off. I know it isn't nice. I know it could get me killed. I'm trying to work on it.

I agree and no amount of yoga breathing exercises will ever fix it. I live in an area that has a large population of very elderly people that should not be behind the wheel. Every day is an exciting new adventure on the road.

I don't usually just come out and say things like this but I had a glass of red wine on my lunch break today. Cake Layer Shiraz to be exact. And it was delicious and TOTALLY makes coming back to work ok.

I hate old people drivers. What constitutes on old person driver? One who says, "The speed limit is just a limit...it doesn't dictate how fast a person has to drive." Old people also can't park. Or make decisions quickly. Or signal. I try not to flip off old people because I am the youth director at church and that sets a bad example. (So does drinking wine at lunch; this is totally ruining my testimony.)

So there you have it. Red wine and old people.

Your blog is awesome.

I have horrible road rage. Horrible. So bad in fact, I can feel my blood pressure not just rising, but boiling every time I get behind an idiot.
I was taking one of the kids to school & got behind a grandma in a Buick. She, natually, was in the left lane going well under the speed limit. I get in the middle lane to pass her with the other cars & what does the hag do? She speeds up. I speed up more & get over just in time to get in my turn lane to turn left. I glare at her when she pulls up next to me at the red light. She shakes her head disapprovingly. I then gave her the finger with a smile.

I know.. I'm going to burn in hell. I just can't help myself.

I have to drive in stupid Dallas traffic. One day, one of my girls piped up from the back seat, sticks up her middle finger, and says, "Mom, does this mean get off my bumper?"

Amo said...

Yes, I like it! I am a honker. I honk at anybody who gets in my way. My husband hates it! He is one of those "nice drivers." Not me.

Following you now too! Love your sense of humor!

I so wanted to do that to a certain driver who pulled a right turn in front of me (I was in the right turn lane, he was to my left). What a putz!

God help us if they ever start making cars with dual rocket launchers as an aftermarket option.

sarah said...

preach it, sister! one thing i cannot stand is when people decide that 5mph over the speed limit is appropriate for the left lane, because it's technically speeding. no, folks, leave the left lane for those of us who want to drive like maniacs and get your slow ass back to the right lane!

anyways, ill join ya in a little middle-finger salute to all the crappy drivers out there!!

LOLing right now happy to know I am not alone! I am a psycho lady when I am behind a bad driver....my husband says I scare him when I'm behind the wheel:)

Pamela said...

Shit, I think you flipped me off just the other day. However, I probably tailgated you and followed you home afterward so, yeah, I know where you live. JK. Stopped by from Mama Kat's...
