People are annoying. And I’m sorry, if I didn’t complain here then my poor husband would have to listen to me. So, instead you all are my therapy.
I hate driving. I hate driving in the city that I live because people are selfish and rude. Oklahoma is known for their polite people and if you come in contact with them face to face they generally are (at least I know I AM polite, right mom?) but when you get behind the wheel of a car you better be prepared to make other people’s lives easier. People really would like for you to risk your life in order to save them 3 seconds at a light.
Today, I was driving along minding my own business and I was in the left turn lane at a green light. Not a green left arrow mind you, just a plain old green light. The light had changed from a yellow arrow to plain green about ten seconds before I even got up to the light so the cars opposite of me were starting to go. I look in my rear-view mirror to see this lovely older man raising his hands and yelling, “GO! Why didn’t you go?!” My first instinct was to get out of the car and punch him in the face through his window but instead I decided to just smile and wave at him in the mirror. Thinking back at it I should have put my car in park and just idled there. Every time I would inch forward he would inch up on my bumper.
I finally turn left and he goes zooming by me. His very important destination you ask?
I kid you not. He was in that big of a hurry to get his Big Mac on.
Do you know who I was in a hurry to see?
You got that right…
