Thing is, we probably all do it when pushed. Not always the same trigger and not necessarily the same language - some of us have
For me, it's not quite so much people who drive as if they're in their own little bubble - after all, we've all had a moment of "Ooops, I didn't see that, I was going through my to-do list". No it's people who drive like there's no one else on the road - and it isn't accidental. They don't give a
My word for them? "Special". On any given day of the week you'll hear me say -
"Oh please, no. Blow right through that red light why don't you? You must be one of those special people." Grrr.
And then there are people who honk at you when you're not even doing anything wrong. They're speeding and they get annoyed with anyone who doesn't? To them I say "Oh sure, I'll get myself stopped and ticketed just so you can get to where you need to be on time. Why don't you just leave a little earlier?"
Or they honk at you when you're being nice? No lie - the other day I stopped to let a car out onto the busy road I was on. The driver didn't have a snowflake in hell's chance of getting out otherwise, and no one was stopping. So I did the nice thing, stopped, motioned .... and was given one of the "What the hell are you doing?" long, loud honks by the driver behind me. I was very tempted to get out, feign concern and ask whatever the matter was, but people carry guns over here, so it's not advisable to get into a fight whether intentional or not. So instead I let someone else out about fifty yards down the road....... ;-)
But the one that really gets me all sweary, is when you're trying to parallel park on a busy road and no one will stop. They just drive around you so that you can't swing back into the spot. Well, you can try but you'll probably hit the car that doesn't have half a minute to stop and let you reverse.
What's your beef, and most importantly. what's your response?
