I drive defensively, and I know there are idiot drivers out there. Why did I have to run into so many today?
I went to the mall today. On the way there, a man behind me decided I was going too slow. So he got on my bumper - literally inches away. I was already going about 8 miles over the speed limit, and on a road where the police routinely nab speeders. I wasn't about to go faster! He then decided that MY stop at a stop sign counted for him, so he ran it and continued on my bumper. He then turned into a church parking lot, all the time never backing off. Nice representation of that church membership!
On the way home, there is a 4-way stop. I stopped, a car coming the other way went, then it was my turn. Oops - here comes another neanderthal running a stop sign without slowing down! Except he gives me a goofy "look what I got away with" grin.
I'm not a violent person, but after driving today I can understand how road rage happens. I was good, didn't cuss or flip them off, but dangerous drivers make me angry. Interestingly, both bad drivers were middle-aged men. Is that a fluke or are men more aggressive drivers?
