How often do we feel even a slight tendency to indulge in this modern trend of letting off steam?
I must own that I did this very morning - And unlike the title suggests, I didn't just call out a mild rebuke to the other driver! (More)
There I was at the intersection, waiting for the lights to turn green.
They did! But I didn't dare turn into the street. I was too busy watching this UTTER IDGIT (from Father Ted) that was revving like mad and flying through
the RED LIGHTS in front of me.
Well, did I BOIL!! (And I'm not asking!)
Of course, I yelled a fair stream of vitriol at the GOON, and decided to BLAST him with the horn and maybe even a few verbal examples of my ire - when I got level with him.
Yes, as usual, he had to stop at the next lights just down the road. All that haste for nothing!!!
Well, I was just behind him in the next lane and I had the window down and ready. I wondered if he'd WANNA FIGHT, as the lights were still red.
I never found out, because at that moment the radio came on in the car, and I was annoyed at it because I HAD NOT switched it on.
With my attention switched to dealing with the radio - how could the driver hear me if the radio was going? - I looked back out the window and
UNBELIEVABLY, the other driver BEGAN TO DISSOLVE right there next to me!!
And then I continued to WAKE UP with the RADIO FULLY ON!
