As you may or may not know I almost live a stone’s throw away from work. It is only a seven minute car ride when there is no traffic. Every morning I leave the house at the same time because you know, I am a creature of habit. And when I say habit I mean routine. And when I say routine I mean I do the same stuff every morning, week, month, year *lol*.
And every morning on my way into work I meet the same people. So naturally I would assume they are creatures of habit (read routine) as well. How come that one day I can drive right onto the main road with no car in sight and on other days they are standing bumper to bumper? I can’t even make out a reason or see some sort of regularity to that. So it is not as if the road is all jammed up on Fridays or I always get to have a smooth drive on Tuesdays. Don’t these people have to be in work on time? They can’t all be on flexible working hours, can they? I really don’t get it but that is not the worst of it.
I get really upset when I see women finish their make-up in the car. What? You don’t have the two extra minutes at home to apply your mascara or put on your lip gloss? This is ridiculous. You are holding up the traffic and I really don’t think I want to see that. It is something that belongs into the privacy of your home or at least the bathroom in your workplace for crying out loud.
And to you male eejits who think you own the road and it is okay to talk on the phone while driving and thereby going all over the place. There is a reason this is illegal. Also have your mothers never taught you any manners? If the traffic is bumper to bumper and somebody wants to get onto the main road from a tiny side road and you see that that road is backed up as well, it would totally make sense to let another car in. Yes, only because I am a woman driver does not mean you can be less courteous and keep me standing there. I hope Karma kicks you in the nuts.
Also I do mind you passing me with supersonic speed before you move in front of me and then drive as if you’re a 90 year old on a Sunday cruise. My apologies to all 90 year olds. Anyway you may have noticed that I need to vent. Sometimes I want to scream and kick when I am driving. Oh wait. I do scream and kick when I am driving. If it were not for the odd vent in the comfort of my own car I would have actually ripped off somebody’s head. Anyhoo it always reminds me of that Simpson episode "Screaming Yellow Honkers" when Marge had to go to a road rage class and then wondered what Curtis E. Bear, the Courtesy Bear would do :)
