Road Rage

You're cruisin' along on your way home from work. It was "that kind of day." You know the kind- bad, but not in a horrible way. Not necessarily bad, even. More like BLAH.

So, like I said, you're driving home, looking forward to a nice dinner. Mmmm! Being the good driver that you are, you're driving only 5 mph over the speed limit. Enough to get home a little faster, but not enough to get a ticket.

You look in your rearview mirror, and get a nervous feeling in the pit of your stomache. Someone is tailing you so close that you're afraid they might hit you. Jerks!

How do you react:

A) Drive faster... you don't want him to rear-end you.

B) Stay the same speed... You'll show him that riding your butt isn't gonna change a darn thing!

C) Drive even slower- 5 mph under the speed limit... That'll show him! Tick him off even more! Ha! You laugh an evil laugh, plus you wave at him. So evil!

D) Speed up, slow down, speed up, slow down... Keep him on his toes!

E) Pull over so he can pass you... You don't want to get in an accident. No way, sir.

F) You have no clue what I'm talking about... You would be the one driving 20 over the speed limit, and tailing someone else who you deemed as slow.

I'll go with B. I like making a point with my actions and putting people in their place :)

I would probably slow down or pull over so he could pass...I used to get really angry and full of road rage. But, it is So not worth it, especially with kids in the vehicle,

Pull over so he can pass. I really hate when people do that.

I would slow down so he could pass. My hubby would speed up, not let him pass, while telling the guy he was a jerk.

Please drop by and read about My Linky Love Dream. :)

Unless one intends to pass all vehicles should be driving in the right hand lane...the left lane is only used for passing....so even if I was 5 mph over the speed limit if I am in the right lane there is no where else for me to go...he can go ahead and pass me in the left lane...and I can give him the royal wave.....
