To the Person in Front of Me in the Passing Lane Driving Exactly the Speed Limit

What the hell is wrong with you?
Did you just learn to drive
Yesterday? Huh?
Did you get your license from a
Gumball machine?
Come on. Move over.
Move! Moooooooove!

groans loudly
wishes he had machine guns mounted behind his headlights

You must hate me. Is that it?
You hate me? I wronged you somehow?
This is payback. It has to be.
Oh, you scurvy, rotten dev–

Oh! Making a left turn, I see.
Huh. Ummm…
Never mind all that stuff
I just said.

(…oops…)


Traffic in my town had gotten worse year over year and my patience with certain bad driving habits has grown thinner and thinner. I should be better. I should be more Godly and patient. I do try, for whatever that’s worth. Sometimes I get humbled. I’m not proud!
