Too late now for New Year’s resolutions! Which is a great relief for me as I have not exercised once and I am currently eating kettle corn and drinking wine—just to hold me over until dinner, which will include pasta of some kind and more wine…or maybe gin. Life is short, don’t judge.
Anyway, it is much more satisfying to talk about other people’s problems, like my pet peeves regarding other drivers. They’ll probably not be the ones you might guess, but I hope you will give them some thought.
If it makes you feel any better (and it shouldn’t), your honking upsets her, she thinks about it for a long time, and NEVER figures out why you did it. So, it will likely happen again. How about we avoid the whole thing by you not being a jerk, and just don’t honk in the first place.
You are not invisible; your tinted windows do not shield the victims of your crime from the horror of your actions. I beg you to keep some tissues in your car. Please, in the name of all that is holy, stop!
A whole little story starts to weave in my mind and, within seconds, I have created the story of your whole world coming to an end—the funeral, your girlfriend, your golden retriever waiting for you at home, everyone sobbing at your grave, angrily screaming at you-fists shaking up towards the sky, “WHY did you do this?” Now I am totally depressed and it is all your fault.
Remember that we have no idea what is happening in someone else’s life. They could be coming home from a funeral, visiting someone at the hospital, going through a painful breakup, worried about their kid, or so many other possibilities. The last thing they need is for you to honk, flip them off, tail them, give them the stink-eye as you pass them, scream obscenities, etc.
The moral of the story: just chill! Life’s hard enough. Besides, when you get really angry with other drivers, it usually because of something else going on in your own life—most of which can be, at least temporarily, alleviated with pasta, pizza, ice cream, and other empty carbs. Do it. It will make the roads a kinder, gentler place.
