I've been on good behavior for the last few posts, haven't I? I'm pretty sure I have, so please excuse my little rant.
I was driving home from work today, when some idiot on a motorcycle (actually it was a crotch rocket .... nobody with a respectable motorcycle drives that way) nearly killed himself with my car. Seriously! I was minding my own business, driving approximatley the speed limit and leaving a safe distance between my car and the car in front of me. All of a sudden, this jerk on a motorcycle turns up behind me and decides that me and the car in front of me aren't driving fast enough for his liking. So what does he do? The clown doesn't bother to let off the gas, but decides to zip out of my lane into a lane that was exiting BACK into my lane about 3 feet away from my front bumper. I don't even think I saw the asshole's head turn to look before changing lanes!
Of course, I am paying attention and brake in order to give the dude some room but that isn't the point. The point is that a guy ON A MOTORCYCLE pulled right in front of me! Had my reaction time been slower, I could have run him over. Ugh and it made me so mad.
Here is the thing. I don't care if you want to ride a motorcycle. I don't care if you want to drive fast. Hell, be crazy and don't wear your helmet. I don't even really give a damn if you want to drive wrecklessly just as long as your doing so doesn't put me in the position where I could harm you! So in the words of one of my favorite bloggers : crotch rocket drivers .... you are on notice!
