Common Courtesy

I was driving to work today at about 73 mph (roughly 117 kph) in a 65 mph zone (in Iowa, you can go about 8 mph over the speed limit and be pretty sure that you’re not going to get pulled over) in the left hand lane (what we call the “fast” lane) when I come upon a little Chevy S10 going about 67 mph. This wouldn’t be so bad except that the person in the right hand lane (the slow lane) was going about the same speed. This didn’t make me too happy because I like to go fast, so I slowly got closer to the Chevy in order to hint that he needed to speed up a bit, but he just stayed at that speed. It’s times like these that I wish I was rich and had forklift forks on the front of my truck so that I could run stupid drivers off of the road, but that’s besides the point. After about 20 minutes of following this guy, I could finally go around him. I hate road rage, and I tried to stay as calm as possible, but this guy was just an idiot (and his bimbo companion was fixing her stupid hair the whole time), so I thought I’d put down in writing some simple courtesies that one should obey when driving to reduce road rage.

This next one is one of the most important rules of the road:

That’s all I can think of for now. I may post some more later.
