Here’s a quote from a unself-described road rager:
Do not tail the car in front of you and do not fall to far back so others can cut you off.
“Eliza, I know you’re not talking about me and ‘unself’ isn’t a word. What about an Eliza Leigh described road rager?”
I like unself better.
The funny part about this road rage expert (ooh I like even better) is they rarely (“Never”) follow this tenet.
Let me ask you all this geometry question:
If four cars are in front of you and you DON’T tail will you make it through a red light that everyone else is stopped at?
“Eliza. The ‘road-rager’ was panicking thinking they were going to miss their train. If it made them feel better to yell at me for not tailing someone who couldn’t go anywhere anyways- then that’s their prerogative. Besides it was funny.”
‘Go faster I would have made it through the light.’
‘But there’s four people in front of us, you driving would have changed that?’
The Lesson here people is~
Never listen to your passengers
- “Unless one’s not completely in the car.”
Let the panicked person drive
- “If they crash it won’t be your fault.”
