Daily Rant #7

Posted on

Been awhile, but this is a doozy.

 

If you’re driving along the freeway at 55 mph in the fast lane, and the speed limit is 65 mph, don’t take it personal that I am passing you. YOU SHOULD NOT speed up and make it impossible for me to merge over while you’re texting, talking, putting on makeup, singing, eating, spacing out, or whatever it was you were doing while I attempted to pass you to keep the flow of traffic safe. I don’t know you! Me passing you has nothing to do with you. I’m sure you’re a great and wonderful person who just got preoccupied. Please, for a more pleasurable experience, allow me to pass or move over to allow traffic to proceed. That is all.

    I should add that I have learned to drive in the middle, not in the fast lane … I’ve been flipped off way too many times – I finally got the hint that the fast lane is no place for slow pokes.

    Umm … well, so … I have a confession … that girl doing 58 (NOT 55) in the fast lane you are passing has been me. And I promise I will do better, I won’t take it personal anymore, and I won’t speed up to stop you from merging. And I swear, no really, I really will put down my cell phone, close my Castleville game and stop searching for chocolate in my purse. I can do better, and I will! 😉
