This afternoon I was driving back to work from lunch, a few minutes late (as usual)…I take a highway that runs on the outer skirts of town to avoid slow traffic, stop signs & stoplights. It’s probably not any faster, but it’s better for my mental health.
Anyway, today as I was exiting off the highway…about to merge onto a street named “Richardson Loop” …one of the busiest streets in town...I see a white pickup truck in front of me slam on his breaks! It all happened so fast, I had to swerve onto the grassy shoulder to avoid rear-ending him!
Of course, being the obnoxious /impatient/always-in-a-hurry person that I am, I slam on my horn!
Assuming the reason for his sudden break was due to his lack of ability to merge off of the highway onto traffic.
Anyway I speed past him –shooting him a nasty glare!
It was in that moment, mid honk & glare, that I see the reason for the sudden stop:
A big white funeral hurst slowly passes by.
I honked at a FUNERAL PROCESSION!
And the award for the most terrible person on earth goes to…
(I started to write something about dropping dead from the embarrassment but I decided it wasn’t in good taste, ahem.)
Anyway, I could feel the eyes of every driver staring at me with disgust.
In a moment of desperation to escape the embarrassment, I literally fled the scene!
You’d think I would have had the grace to pull over…nope! I hit the gas and sped off!
It wasn't my best moment.
Every now and then we all need a big slice of humble pie….I had mine today.
And now my friends, I will leave you with a few of my favorite road rage memes. Enjoy!
