You Bring Out The Worst In Me

I am a good driver.  I have only had my car involved in 2 accidents my whole life and I wasn't even in the car for one of those.  I am hardly ever in a situation where I almost get in an accident.  This number has gone up drastically in the last four years.  I only have one thing to say about that.

Texas, YOU SUCK!!

OK, OK.  We all know I have WAY more than one thing to say about everything.

There I was driving back from the hospital.  Again.  We were at a new hospital today so I was being extra observant, about where I was and where I needed to go, when I came up to this interchange.

It's nasty with a bunch of lanes and levels going this way, that way and back around again.  It can be easy to get in the wrong lane if you're not careful and sometimes that can land you several miles of back tracking by the time you find a place to get turned around.  Needless to say, I made sure I was in the lane I needed.   The lady to my left did not but thought she did.

Here is a close up of the altercation in question.  Let's pretend I'm the car with the red dot.  Please take note that the arrows painted on the road and on a sign directly on the left side of the road say my lane and her lane can turn left.  So, on the other side of those two bridges (just like that little white car) I proceeded to turn left, into my designated lane.  She also turned left.  Into my lane!  Some yelling and gesturing ensued.  I wont say by who.

Listen lady!  (yes it was a woman)  Just because you chose the lane that went back around doesn't mean you can wide turn!  Your left turn only lane doesn't mean you get first bids on lanes once you turn! It means you have to take the closest lane!  I bet you failed math. I have never come so close to getting out of my car and going a little Burke County all over you and your pissy passenger!!  LEARN TO DRIVE!!!!!

I know she wont read this.  I think that is what bothers me the most.  She thinks I was wrong!  Me!  I don't ask for a lot in life.  I just want stupid people to KNOW they are stupid.  Is that really too much to ask?

As I am yelling, "Idiot!" or other choice words, my next sentence is always, "And you probably have no idea you almost crashed into me right now." There is a turn like that here and I cringe every morning, just waiting for someone to smash into me!
