So, we're back from vacation. More on that Thursday. :) I'm too wiped to try and remember all the things we did and saw. Plus, I'm not officially back until Thurday.
However, there is one thing that I wanted to talk about. Road rage. We saw a bit of this on our trip back home. And let me tell you, I was scared. There was a moment there when I expected to see guns.
This was between two drivers. I have no idea who started this, but things got ugly fast. We're on a freeway, everyone is bumper to bumper, 70 mph and suddenly these two bozos come to a complete stop and one starts to get out of his car...on the freeway! Cursing and acting like a complete idiot. The one guy starts to go again, then the other gets back in his car and follows. They're purposely stopping fast and trying to cause a fender bender. Then a third car gets into the act and also stops and joins in. It was like something out of a movie. We couldn't get out of there fast enough. For one, I didn't want a stray bullet hitting us! Also, all the people slowing down to watch was causing an even worse traffic jam.
We saw these two cars later, and they seemed to be fine, both were staying away from each other. The whole thing just makes me shake my head though. We've all had people angry at us at least once. You ignore them and keep driving. Engaging doesn't solve anything, it just amps up the rage.
Where this all took place is not important. Although, I admit, the horrible traffic and the horn blaring did NOT happen in any other state we drove through. Only this one. I just wonder though, do these people have kids? Is this the way the want them to act? Zero tolerance. Someone is mean to you so you strike back. How is that a solution?
Have you ever experienced something like this?
All I know is, I'm glad to be back among my romance lovin' friends! LOL
