  • Brooke, slow down!

  • One of the issues that annoy me while driving is the people who don’t realize they have blinkers. Also, I can’t stand when I get stuck behind someone going 10 or 15 miles below the speed limit.

  • One of the issues that annoy me while driving is the people who don’t realize they have blinkers. Also, I can’t stand when I get stuck behind someone going 10 or 15 miles below the speed limit.
    I hate to admit it, but I have terrible road rage. Now, I would never get out of my car and try to harm someone like we see on the news sometimes.
    However, whether anyone can hear me or not, there is a lot of yelling inside of my vehicle. Especially when someone cuts me off.
    For the most part of my driving, I usually go the speed limit. Although, sometimes I do occasionally go a little over if I’m in a hurry.
    Whenever my mother rides with me it’s like a constant reminder of how to drive.
    “Brooke, slow down.”
    “Brooke, that guy’s blinker is on.”
    “Brooke, be careful, this guy doesn’t know what he’s doing.”
    I love my mother to death. I don’t know where I’d be without her. But I have to admit this really pushes my buttons. She knows this gets on my nerves… because I’ve told her.
    I know I’m not the only one with a mother like this.
    Does anyone else get the hand on the dash, with them gasping? Maybe even their right foot stomping the floor, looking for the imaginary brake?
    Happens to me all the time.
    I guess you can say I’m an aggressive driver.
    There was recently a viral video of road rage in action. A lady was driving and recording a guy in a really nice truck riding her tail.
    He eventually gets in the other lane and starts to go around her. As this process takes place, he gets up to her passenger side window and gives her an obscene hand gesture. Then he puts his foot on the gas and peels off.
    What happens next? He loses control of his truck and runs into the ditch, hitting a pole of some sort.
    The first thing that came to my mind after watching the video was, wow… and I thought I was bad.
