an open letter

to the maroon mazda driving on 8th south at 2pm.

dear MM --

i cannot physically drive any faster than the car in front of me is driving. let me wait while you wrap your head around that. ......... deep, i know. SO tailgating me will actually not help either of us to drive any faster. i know the person in front of me was only going 30 in a 35. and i'm sure you were in a hurry. HOWEVER, tailgating only serves to irritate both of us. please note this for the future.

also, chill out.

sincerely,
me
the green car in front of you.

i hate it when drivers take their frustration, aggression, and everything else on the people around them. i get impatient with drivers around me some times, but the most i do is say things in my car, to make myself feel better i guess. i'm sorry you had to deal with that, especially when you weren't the one causing the problem

That is hilarious. I have had those same thoughts. Nothing brings out hostility like driving. Wish I lived in a walkable city.

emily, i love this one! i recently had a traffic altercation in which a stranger called me some pretty nasty names out his window (i didn't let him merge...he didn't have his blinker on and just decided to cut his wheels into my lane). i know. i am mean. but i let about 40 cars in already. anyway, for one brief second, i thought how great it would feel to ram my car full speed into the side of his. god, that would have felt good. and he might not be such an asshole next time. but the joy would only last a second, sadly. and then there would be a fist fight and car repairs. and maybe a lawsuit. but for that one second of sheer pleasure. : )
