I have simple desires. I wish simply not to be obstructed when I drive. I don’t care how fast or slow you go, I simply ask that you do not interfere with me. Like an electron all I want is the path of least resistance.

While these conditions are met or close to met I am sedate. I have no interest in exerting myself in mad scrambles all over the road to save 15 seconds, no interest in chasing yellows, will actively invite people into my lane if they’ve given adequate notice (as long as I don’t have to make people behind me brake), and am probably not among the fastest things on the road.

When they go grossly unsatisfied... a switch gets flipped. Just don’t be a dumbass. It’s safer for you, safer for me and safer for everyone around us. I WILL get by you. One way or another. I will reply in kind to each additional piece of BS you foist upon me, bordering on stupidity. Not proud but it is what it is.

Luckily for them—and probably more luckily for me—the difference between “mostly satisfied” and “grossly dissatisfied” mostly goes into oppo gifs than into road rage.

Behold a gif. Also from this morning. Not of either of the two incidents that sparked this post, you aren’t getting either of them.
