The subject is road rage...
I'm sitting in my hotel room watching CNN Headline News...well, not really watching...it's kinda on for the background noise. But anyway...
They keep talking about this survey done by some company, I think they said it was autovantage or some such thing. But they keep talking about the worst cities for road rage and Miami is at the top of the list.
Have you ever driven behind a car with the big orange on the license plate? Then, like me, you know why Miami is at the top of the list for road rage. It's because Florida drivers suck ass! Yeah, I know, that's just stereotyping Andy. Answer me this...how do stereotypes become stereotypes? Uh huh!
How come no one ever does a survey for the dumbest drivers? I'd almost be willing to bet a paycheck that there's a correlation between the highest levels of road rage and the worst drivers. How come they never ask, what caused the road rage?
I'll give you some examples of things that can bring on road rage...
You're driving down the highway...you're in the left lane...you're doing 55mph...you are a cause of road rage. When you look in the rear view mirror and see a mile long line of cars behind you and none in front of you...pretty good chance that you're the cause of the road rage.
Or how about this one...it goes along with the first example...you're driving down the highway and there's a really long line of people in the left lane trying to get around the idiot I described above...you drive up the right lane and cut in and cause every one behind you to slam on their brakes...you are a cause of road rage.
Okay, one more...'cause I like you...you're driving down the highway and you see that the lane you're in is going to end, do you merge over? Oh, hell no! You can get in front of two more cars if you sneak up there and squeeze the nose of your car in...you are a cause of road rage.
My point is...road rage doesn't just happen...I mean, it's not like post partum depression or something...well most of the time it's not...I'm sure that's been a cause of road rage too...but it doesn't just happen...somebody did something to piss that person off...something more than likely either extremely stupid or extremely rude...take your pick. So just knock it the hell off...Got it?!?!
Have a very nice day...and stay out of my way on the road!
