i’m talking with some strangers … here’s why,
i was in the righthand lane and a big truck was in the left. we were both stopped at a red light. with green, i pressed the accelerator, as did the guy to the left of me.
the next thing i knew, he was veering into my lane. in a slight panic, i removed my foot from the gas and left it off both pedals as i attempted to assess the situation, i.e. guess what the F he was doing in that much bigger car than mine.
the night time temperatures were lovely and as such, i had my windows rolled down. there was nothing on the radio but commercials, so i had turned it off.
it was soft, but unexpected as it floated through my open window and he jerked his car back into his lane and blessedly away from mine. one doesn’t expect to have a conversation with the driver of another car whilst driving, but i will admit, the recognition and admittance of his poor driving skills was appreciated, not to mention, i was super glad to have my car untouched and able to zoom off into the night.

Whew! Scary. Glad it turned out okay.
my thoughts exactly.
Whew! Big trucks are scary.
and even scarier when their drivers aren’t paying attention!
well, at least he apologized. and you weren’t hit. that’s a plus.
i would have settled for not getting hit. the apology was icing on the cake, not to mention, an acknowledgement that i wasn’t just experiencing road rage. he was actually driving not so smartly.
