Missed Connection

I got the finger last night on the commute home. I love that. There's nothing like a stranger telling you that you're numero uno. Apparently the fact that she didn't stop at her red light and turned in front of me causing me to slam on the breaks as I dared to proceed through my green light earned me the aforementioned bird. I responded by throwing both hands in the air as if to say, "Nice move. I would have stopped at that red light but hey, that's just me! Not you though. You are a rebel. You live on the edge. And who am I to question your choices? Nobody, that's who! Go right on ahead friend." She must have misunderstood me because she quickly followed up with that lovely suddenly-mash-your-breaks-so-they-think-they're-going-to-rear-end-you-thing that I enjoy so much. I thought "Oh, you rascal. You almost got me that time. Hahaha!" Unfortunately I turned at the next light (after it turned green of course) and she went straight so that is where our friendship ended. *sigh*

I'm thinking about posting a missed connection on craigslist. Wanna help me write it?

She'll get what's coming to her...no worries. Good thing the connection ended quickly - you never know these days - there are soooo many crazies out there!

Be safe sista!

How's this:
Missed Connection
You: Rebel driver who likes living on the edge. A.k.a. erratic and rageful driver who was too busy getting to your destination 30 seconds faster to notice that your light had changed...or maybe you're color-blind).
Me: Driver who was following those silly things we call LAWS.
Call me, we can exchange insurance information.

Geez Lori,

I am glad that nut didn't shoot at you.

What is it about driving in a car that makes people so nuts? I know people who otherwise appear to be relatively sane members of society,but get them behind the wheel and they think it is o.k. to rage, honk, yell, and run at other drivers.

I can't believe you know a gang. And they said "she'll get what is coming to her." I will be careful not to cross you in the future.
