On the road, driving, it's normal to experience anger. I regularly experience this on my hilly, windy road on my daily commute to work. It is simply unsafe to go above 45 mph on some sections of these roads, and signs are clearly placed for safety purposes. But, there are, more often than not, idiots riding my ass. I'm talking 5 feet behind me. And then they pass in, sometimes, very unsafe portions of road where you can't tell if there's someone coming. I can't believe it. I try to relax and be safe but these people are so upsetting. My wife thinks my irritation is funny and isn't a problem compared to her ex-boyfriends of the past. One of them would follow people around so he can pull over and yell at them. How's your rage, RM?

I have stellar emotional intelligence, so I normally move to the right lane and focus on the Brahms playing while secretly hoping they get a ticket.

That's great, Balki. I would do this but it's a narrow two-line road in the hills of MO.

If I was in your situation, i would put my right blinker on and slow down to 30 and proceed as if oblivious to the world around you

:lol:

It's the usual suspects, though. These are my neighbors. I'm going to have to have a serious conversation about them getting off my ass and stop endangering the lives around them, eventually. I'm waiting for the right opportunity. Maybe some night I see them at the bar or lake or pool drinking.

No, I'm broke. Nearly all my money goes to the mortgage and home owners association fees.

I get major rage at pedestrians too, especially in parking lots. Cross my drive path straight across, not at an angle where it takes you twice as long. Also, how about NOT walking down the middle of the drive lane in a parking lot?

Do you find yourself getting racist in these rage-fits, Ruddock?

Not at all. Besides, my observation is that it is usually fat, lazy, people of my race that are the major offenders.

My wife and I get very mean toward fat people in our rage fits. I have to correct her when she gets racist. I say it's culture, not the color of their skin.
