I can NOT stand when people tail me when I’m driving. It pretty much drives me insane (no pun intended. *ba dum ching*)
I’m the daughter of a personal injury lawyer, so I’ve grown up hearing my ENTIRE life about how cars are not toys, they are means to an end to get a person from one place to another. They can be highly dangerous, but if operated correctly they can be safe.
Well, I’m sorry people. Going 80-90 miles an hour down the friggin’ freeway & riding the bumper of my car is NOT OPERATING SAID VEHICLE CORRECTLY! It is so dangerous! It is putting my life, my son’s life, my husband’s life, & other drivers’ lives at risk…and frankly, it just hacks me off.
Whenever Todd starts riding someone’s back bumper we have a conversation that goes something like this:
Kate: Todd, how much do you love me?
Todd: With all my heart. Why?
Kate: Is my life valuable to you? Is Lboy’s life valuable to you?
Todd: Kate, you know it is. Why are you even asking me these questions?
Kate: Because, when you ride someone’s a*s like that I start to wonder if you even think that my life is valuable at all or that your son’s life is valuable. Because, I start thinking of how you are operating 3200 pounds of steel & we could be crushed in seconds all because you seem to think that tailing a person is going to get us somewhere faster!!!
Yeah, that never bodes well for a happy car ride. But seriously, if I’m riding in the car with someone who is riding another car’s bumper or if I have someone behind me who is tailing me too close I go through the roof.
Like, I’m getting angry just writing about it.
