I’ve seen on the news lately several stories relating to road rage, and recently a TV movie on this topic was aired. We are becoming impatient and in such a hurry to arrive at our destinations.
This morning I left early enough to get to work for 8:00 (I live in the boonies, so “early enough” was 7:05). By the time I arrived (5 minutes to 8:00) I was fit to be tied and in a piss poor mood.
It got me to thinking: I’m developing a short fuse and becoming quite impatient. I’m not about to shoot anyone mind you, however, let’s say it’s a good thing they can’t hear me. I also seem to be developing a nasty habit of tailgating, only for a half mile or so to “prove my point”.
Now, I consider myself to be a very patient and understanding person, and usually content to arrive when I arrive, but in my car, alone, that theory goes right out the window.
I’m not a speeder and have never gotten pulled over. In an 80km/hr zone I’ll do 98 and don’t want to go any faster but get stuck behind someone going 95 and I’ll pass, my eyes shooting daggers at the inconsiderate driver as I pass by.
What are you like when driving?
