Can you believe that guy!?

The nerve. The absolute nerve of that driver!!

I think that a lot when I'm behind the wheel of my '91 Spirit. It's true. I'm a road snob. I am of the opinion that I'm the best driver on the road at any given mile post - with the obvious exception of the day I look out my window and see Kyle Busch driving beside me. At that point I'd be all over the road as I try frantically to find my camera to snap a photo for my aunt. Otherwise, keep your distance.

Now, I don't mean to say that I'm a mean driver or a speed demon, I just think that everyone else needs to re-take driver's ed. What happened to actually using a turn signal BEFORE turning or changing lanes? That bugs me. Know what bugs me more? Speeders that ride my tail. I will go so far as to use the word 'irk'. It completely irks me. Not only are they breaking the law most obviously, but they have the nerve to compromise my safety directly. To get where exactly? ONE car ahead one the road, or they just have the need to get to the red light before me. OOOOooooo.

And now I sound like an old lady driver as much as I drive like one.

I'm trying really hard to come up with a way to turn this rant into something really spiritual and profound, but all I can come up with is that I need to work on having more grace, patience, and humility on the road. I suppose I could use a little more of those in life generally, too.

Can anyone come up with something spiritual to parallel this with? Kudos if you do.

  1. something about the way we love those that we find detestable. serving the ones we despise and whatnot. im the same way. i will never be as good at anything i do as i am at driving. ;) i find it to be the best exercise in the world at learning to love your "enemies." do i get kudos?
