While I was out and about today, I realized I was remiss in not mentioning a couple of drivers in my previous post. Without further ado, they are:
The Idle Idler
The Idle Idler is always in front of you at a stoplight. When the light turns green, they are startled out of their reverie. Then, they realize that they need to put in the clutch. And then put the car in gear. And then let off the brake. And then give it some gas. Why, oh why is the green light a surprise? Did they think they would never have to put the car in gear ever again? Why aren’t they prepared for the eventuality of the green light?
The Anxious Asshole
How I could have forgotten this driver, I will never know. This is a type I see on a consistent basis. You’ve seen them, too. They are in a hurry! They are important! Their destination is more important than yours! They will do just about anything to get there: speeding, weaving in and out of traffic (sometimes two lanes at a time), cutting people off, etc. In a way, they are entertaining to watch because they are so predictable. Many other drivers can see the AA coming and toy with them. This is fun to watch, because you can see the AA about ready to figuratively blow a gasket. Most entertaining of all is when you get off the freeway and sit at the light on the exit ramp. Who’s usually just one or two cars in front of you? Yup, the AA. All that fancy driving never seems to accomplish anything but feeding the AA’s ego and endangering other drivers.
So there you have it, my friends. Keep your eye out for a future post about types of car owners. Bet you can't wait. ;-)
