Road Rage.

The eight other bloggers who write regularly are, in alphabetical order, Delirious, gaelikaa, Padmum, Grannymar, Maxi, Paul, Shackman, The Old Fossil. Do drop in on their blogs and see what their take is on this week’s topic. Since some of them may post late, do give some allowance for that too!

Funny-Road-Rage-10There was this loving grandfather who always made a special effort to spend time with his son’s family on weekends. Every Saturday morning he would take his 7-year-old granddaughter out for a drive in the car for some quality time. Just he and his granddaughter.

One particular Saturday he had a bad cold and really didn’t feel like being up at all. He knew his granddaughter always looked forward to their drives and would be disappointed. Luckily, his wife came to his rescue and said that she would take their granddaughter for the drive.

When they returned, the little girl anxiously ran upstairs to see her grandfather who was still in bed. “Well, did you enjoy your ride with grandma?” he asked. “Oh yes Grandpa. It was really wonderful. We didn’t see a single a**hole, Sunday driver, blind bastard, dipshit or son of a b***h anywhere we went!

Having let my readers have some humour, let me just add that my son and heir has forbiden me from driving on our city roads for the simple reason that I am prone to call people either idiots or maniacs, and often so that they can hear. MSAH believes that one day some idiot or maniac may decide to take recourse to more violent measures against me.

  1. Ramana, I remember a famous journey in our car in Edinburgh when Lily and Mother-in-law kept reading all the signs out to me, and eventually I stopped the car, turned round to the two ladies and asked, OK, I have had enough, will the the two of you make up your mind who is driving this car, you or your mother? The rest of the drive went silently!!

  2. When Jenny drives, she rages non-stop against other drivers. I’m the opposite, I’m very tolerant of other people’s bad driving because I know my own driving is far from perfect.

  3. I only drive around town, and I try to pick times when the traffic isn’t heavy. When we were driving to Santa Fe once (Andy behind the wheel) Andy complained about a woman who wasn’t driving at a consistent speed. I told him maybe she had problems (like with her eyes) and was doing the best she could. So I told him from now on if I ever had to go to Santa Fe, he would drive me. It was his contribution to the rest of the world. He’s been very good-natured about it, and he hasn’t complained about other drivers nearly as much.

  4. I don’t own a car…

    but from the windows of a city bus, I see some fantastic manoeuvres – especially hate/(luv) the ones who think the bus has great brakes and then does something to see if that is true. Never mind the fact the car has long gone before the passengers have recovered!

  5. I don’t swear, but I do say things like, “UNBELIEVABLE!” I also do include the occasional, “idiot” and ” these people do not know how to drive!” πŸ™‚
