Just spent five hours on the road to my undisclosed location in Dick Cheney’s secret lair, and if traffic near you is anything like it was for me, stay off the road. Unparalleled levels of road douchebaggery today. Felt like deathrace 2011.
A specific shout-out to the Black SUV with tinted windows who decided me doing 75 up a hill in the passing lane to pass two trucks was not fast enough, and tailgated so close I thought he was attempting to mate vehicles. That was bad enough, but when I passed the trucks, turned on my turn signal to get back in the slow lane (again, doing 75 in a 65), the way you decided I was not getting over fast enough and decided to shoot the 4 foot gap between me and the truck and pass me on the right was particularly awesome. Fortunately, I always look to my blind spot after turning on my turn signal, and saw your reckless assholery, or we would both be dead. I hope you get herpes.
And why is it that everyone driving like a fucking maniac is either in a giant vehicle penis SUV or, invevitably, in a 20 year old Honda Prelude that is 90% Bondo, with a loose hood being held in place with a coat hanger and a rear window made out of a frayed and flapping garbage bag and duct tape and confederate flag stickers? Assholes and morons, all of you.
To the groundhog I flattened, my apologies. I tried to slow down, but the hillbilly in the pick-em up truck behind me was tailgating and the blue hairs in a minivan from Ontario kept me from swerving. I’ll have nightmares about the sickening thump. First animal I’ve ever killed, and it made me sick to my stomach.
New Chuck and World Series game 7 tonight. I have open threads scheduled.
