I don’t get it. Actually, I don’t think I ever got it. Why would people race to get to work? Why would someone weave in and out of traffic, nearly get into an accident, just to get to work? I get driving like to get out of work, that makes total sense. But going to work where you will spend the next 8 to 10 hours of your day, that’s what I do not get. Believe me, I race home.
Ok, possibility number one. The driver is late for work. Well, driving like that could make you even later when you are pulled over or involved in an accident. If you are a few minutes late, most bosses understand that. I know that there may be a case when I boss is a hard ass and it doesn’t matter.
Possibility number two. Maybe the driver is always late and the boss won’t understand. In that case the idiot driver should either leave freaking earlier or change his schedule. He’d still get to work. And the roads may be safer that he no longer has to race into work.
Possibility two, the driver is just an ass. Ok, I have nothing for that. That driver should be warned though, right now there are a lot of driver who use their Jersey Brake. You know, slam the brakes for that deer they thought they saw. Granted, that could be bad for both drivers, but I pretty sure that if you run into someone, you are the one at fault.
When I was younger, I would be the guy that would drive in a way just to tick off these types of drivers. You are going to ride my bumper? Well, I guess I can slow down when there is no passing lane. And hey, I find that I could speed up when there is. Yes, I was that guy. However, as I got older, I realized it just wasn’t worth it. Now, when there is an aggressive driver near me, I just let them by. And I laugh loudly when I end up passing them a few miles later and they seem to be having a discussion with an officer.
