Idiot Drivers

I don't usually make this a forum for griping about life, but today I am making an exception. On my way home from work today I was doing about 3 kms over speed limit and caught up to a big, shiny blue Dodge Ram. I pulled into the passing lane and went around him and continued on my way. Within a couple of minutes the idiot driving this big, shiny blue Dodge Ram caught up to me and went around me. I thought, "OK. You like to be in front.". As soon as the jerk got in front of me he slowed down to about 5 kms below speed limit. I followed him for a minute or two thinking he would speed up again. He didn't, so I pulled out to pass him again. This happened at least three times. I have to admit it I was thinking of a few not very nice names for him. Anyway, I pulled around him again and then decided to get ahead of him a ways and maybe he would stay behind me. As soon as I got beside him he sped up and stayed level with me. If I slowed down, so did he. If I sped up, so did he. I thought maybe he wanted to get my attention so I looked over at him. If he had been about 30 years older I would have thought maybe he's coming on to me, but the punk was only about 25 and he was glaring at me! I couldn't believe it! He was mad at me! I almost flipped him a bird, but thought better of it. Instead I winked at him, gave him a suggestive smile and blew him a kiss. I thought his head was going to explode! It was hilarious! He looked so totally shocked that an old lady would flirt with him. He put his foot to the floor and pulled away from me and was gone. This was just the therapy I needed. I wasn't mad anymore and actually had a good laugh. What a loser.

I think guys under thirty shouldn't be allowed to have trucks. I also don't think that it's okay to have a minivan unless you actually have small kids, so I'm a communist that way I suppose.
Nice work auntie Margaret.

Unfortunately there are idiot drivers everywhere. The other day I saw a guy on a motor bike...well I think I saw him. He was flying through town so fast I just felt scared for him or anyone who got in his way. Stupid, stupid, stupid....
