Sick Of The Road Rage Including My Own
This morning this person was entering a very busy road. Their entrance has a giant yield sign and it's easy to see on-coming traffic. She did not have room enough to not yield to me, but she pulled right out in front of me and I laid on my horn.
I was so angry I was shaking, but I drove up alongside of her, finger in the air, and I cut her off. She remained way behind me, and I noticed that she was taking the same route as me almost all the way to my work. She stayed way far back, but I was ready for a fight.
Per her unwillingness to get too close to me after I dangerously cut her off, I can only guess she knows that her own driving behavior was wrong, but that I was a scary person.
Again, I was so angry, I must have looked purple. But the idea that I could (or would) cause an accident, that I wish harm on someone, that I cannot control my emotions and in turn my actions, that scares me.
I have to drive to work and every day is the same. I live in a congested city and people drive like maniacs. Everyone seems to be vying for the front position no matter what, no matter where. I don't start the day ready to scream at people, but 15 minutes into my commute, that's where I'm at.
I feel very strongly that it's everyone else, you know... never me! But, regardless of faults or intentions, I'm on the road and I'm driving a car. I have to get over this need to lash out or something is going to happen.
