road rage

I will admit it. I get road anger (although it’s not bad enough to classify it as “rage”). I’m easily aggravated by the traffic. The congestion. The buses. The bicyclists. (Just to clarify, I fully support cyclists – I think that cities and urban planners need to provide better solutions so cars and bikes can safely coexist). I’m frequently frustrated by elderly drivers and absent minded people. FYI – It’s not acceptable to be driving, smoking a cigarette, talking on a cell phone and holding your dog in your lap all at the same time. Really? You really think that’s safe? The point is I understand that driving can be stressful and unpleasant. That being said, I have never, EVER, been so upset that I’ve wanted to get violent. I do not understand that.

Over the weekend, there was a stabbing in my building. Apparently it started as a dispute over who would be the first to exit the parking lot and escalated into a 50 person brawl where a woman was stabbed in the stomach. THAT, is rage. And completely insane.

    OMG. Seriously??? How did 50 people end up gathering in your neck of the woods? Did people start running out of their homes to participate?? Craziness.

    Oh whoops. Your work parking. I thought you meant your apartment which would have been totally insane. Well, it is totally insane, anyway.
