Rage

Word prompts for Sunday's Whirligig

My wrathful fingers pranced as the shady character began drifting into my lane while he was dialing his blasted cell phone.  My obscene gestures had no affect when he drove between me and the posts to park in the only empty parking spot for blocks.

Instead of grabbing my baseball bat I keep in the car (just in case) and shattering his window in an extreme fit of road, no, parking rage.  I reached deeply within myself and found the nice lady who was lolling around without a worry.

She simply told me, "Chill.  Go home.  Bathe. Relax. Have a drink.  He ain't worth the trouble."

And breathe..not many people are worth the energy or trouble..always best to drive on and home to a nice cup of tea..and a cleansing poem ;)

I can not count all the times I have felt road rage from all the idiot drivers. It is important to keep calm and breathe!
Have a happy day!

I stopped tearing my hair out when it stopped growing back! We seem to have taken a very similar road this week!

It really is scary today, with the people that react this way with road rage. I see it happening from time to time and a lot more than it ever used to be. I just drive and mind my business - no fingers in the air, no unkind words, no angry eyes, no horn blasts - let them rage at someone else, for I do not want that pistol in the car pointed at me in a fit of rage. Gee, WHY ARE PEOPLE SO ANGRY ANYWAY, to behave in such a disgraceful manner?? Very well written Gail. I like what Jae Rose said.....not worth the energy or trouble, always best to drive on and home to a nice cuppa tea, eh.

I cannot stand it when they do that - and they do, do it!
