I'll be the first to admit that I have a bit of road rage, but I had somewhat of a revelation a couple of weeks ago. I was in a parking lot when I pulled out in front of someone. Totally my fault. Sun was kinda in my eyes but I really wasn't paying attention. The other driver, a middle-aged lady, lays on the horn. I stop and give the universal, hands in the air, sorry my bad gesture, but she, and what I presume to be her husband weren't having it. Both flipping me off. Husband was waving his arms all crazy, Coco the Monkey-style. If he had a heart attack right then, I would not have been surprised. It was then that I thought how ridiculous these people looked and that this is probably how I must look to other people when I do this. I smiled, waved and drove off, which seemed to only infuriate them more (which was kinda the plan). This has really helped me keep my road rage in check the last few weeks. The moral of this story: Just let it go and don't end up looking like Coco the Monkey.
CO-CO CO-CO CO-CO!
