I’m stopped at a red light in the left (of 2) lanes. Just before it turns green, a car comes up behind me having come around the bend with its brights on. The very second the light turned green this guy lays on the horn. Mind you, he was still approaching right before the light changed so now that he’s honking I’m thinking he’s warning me of imminent danger. Having just been in a car accident 2 months ago, my heart races and I think he’s going to plow into me. I can’t go any faster than the car in front of me, which is going a reasonable speed, but this guy stays on my tail. In this strip of road there’s a light at every block for about 6 or so blocks. At the next light we hit a red but it’s about to turn green. Again, the second the light changed he is blasting the horn.
I’ve now determined this guy is just a fucking asshole. He gets room to go into the right lane and then begins to honk repeatedly at the taxi now in front of him. The taxi tries to speed up to get in front of the person in front of me so that crazy guy can just go on ahead. The driver in front of me has the good sense to get out of the way when the taxi almost cuts him off, trying to get out of the way of the asshole. Even though this cacophony of honking is pissing me off, I’m still wondering if maybe crazy guy needs to get ahead because of some emergency. At the next red light a few lights down, I see crazy guy is just sitting back totally relaxed in his car.
In closing…I’M SO FUCKING SORRY YOU NEED TO GET AHEAD OF ME THAT BADLY. Don’t fucking lay on the horn and then nearly cause an accident because we’re not fucking going fast enough for you. I know you don’t know I just had an accident, but when you roll up behind me with your brights on and laying on the horn, I’m thinking there’s a dangerous situation about to happen.
Maybe this is a weak rant but jeez it really pissed me off and scared the shit out of me.
