So today is beautiful and I plan to run a few errands. I am enjoying driving with my windows down and taking in all the beginnings of spring. I am taking the day at calm, speed-limit (55mph) pace. However, the pickup truck behind me feels otherwise. He is driving right on my bumper, and acting like he is going to pass me all the time (which he doesn't do even though there were several opportunities).
Eventually, we come to a four-way stop. Myself and a car to the right of me both stopped at the stop sign at the same time. As I learned in Driver's Ed, the car to your right has the right of way. So I waved the other driver to go ahead. This did not sit well with Mr Pickup Truck. I can see him slam his hands on his steering wheel and complain to his buddy in the passenger seat. I think to myself, "Oops, he must really be in a hurry. Sorry." After both I an the truck get through the stop sign, he finally decides to pass me...which was one of the worst possible times to pass. He made it safely past, but I am sure he scared the hell out of the on coming drivers. I am not surprised to see that he has a decal of Calvin pissing on something in his back window. That should be the end of the story right? The pickup speeding off because of the huge hurry he is in.
It isn't the end. Evidently, by driving the speed limit and wasting his precious time by allowing another car to go first at the stop sign, I have caused some sort of grievous injury. Now that he in front of me, Mr Pickup slows down...55mph, 50mph, 45mph, 40mph. Even though I am enjoying a leisurely drive, there is a time limit on my lunch break, so once he gets to 40mph, I try to pass. Mr Pickup Truck then speeds up to 70mph to prevent the pass. I pull back behind him and I can see him laughing with his buddy. Whatever...at least we are going the speed limit again.
Finally, we come to a stop light. Mr Pickup Truck does not move when the light turns green, for two minutes he sits there to "punish" me...while traffic piles up behind me. When the light turns yellow, he speeds through it and everyone else has to sit through another red light. Man, I guess you sure got me! Lesson learned...oh wait, everyone thinks that you're the asshole in this situation. Nice try doucher...you made me laugh at your idiocy.
