Yesterday afternoon I had to drive to the store to pick up a few things for taco salad. As I'm driving with my window down listening to some music, quietly minding my own business, I hear this woman screaming and swearing next to me. I glanced over to see what was the matter. She gave me the finger and called me some nasty names that I'll not repeat here. I was shocked. Apparently she had been trying to get into my lane. So, I slowed down some for her to move in and did not saying a word to her. No nasty looks, just simple kindness to let her in.
The thing about this is, she had never even passed me, she was just behind me a little bit on on my right side. I'm a good driver, courteous and easy going, not uptight. It could be that she was just as nasty and ugly a person as she appeared to be. I don't know. Some people just have no patience I guess. She was even going to the same store as I was and had plenty of time to get into the left lane, at least a two blocks length. Even if she had missed the first left turn, there are still two other turns to go into the shopping center after that one. It rattled me a little bit to be screamed at like that by a total stranger. And given the finger for such a stupid reason.
