Asshole drivers

Today while out shopping, we pulled into a convenience store to get a drink. I turned left into the parking lot only to be nearly hit by about three cars. The last of them was this old guy who rudely gestures that the parking lot is one way. Now I have been to this same store several times and have gone into the parking lot the same way and never have I noticed a single sign that says that there is only one way to go. I double checked today and saw no sign. So this guy like so many guys was just driving and acting like an asshole.

I swear driving brings out the worst in us all. I don't think that there is ever a time that I am on the road that I do not get irritated about something. I used to think it was because I was rushing to work or something, but now that I don't work, what is my excuse? Am I an asshole driver, too? Are we all asshole drivers? What was it like before cars? Did people cut each other off while riding horses? I doubt that!

Maybe we should each assign ourselves the task of being a more courteous driver for one week and see if it will make a difference. I doubt it will work, but I am willing to give it a try. How about you?

I can relate! I live in an area where we not only seem to suffer road rage, but we suffer "parking lot rage" as well --- everyone is just so pissed off and furious! Get people behind the wheel, and the worst does come out.
