One of The Dumbest Things I've Ever Experienced While DrivingSubmitted by zooamerica on Fri, 12/06/2013 - 20:57
Driving home from work today, I got caught in highway rush hour traffic. Cars were slowly moving at about 5 mph at best. The highway was a parking lot. I could literally see thousands of cars ahead in a long line of traffic that went for miles.
Then came one of the oddest, dumbest things I've ever experienced while driving.
Bright lights started flashing from behind.
The guy behind me started flashing his lights! As if to say, "Get out of the way, you're driving too slow."
I didn't know whether to laugh or get angry. At first I laughed, but then got angry after he flashed his lights at me again! I couldn't freaking believe it. I must have dropped 50 F-bombs.
I was like, "WTF? 'Are you f'ng serious?! What do you want me to do, run over the car 10 feet in front of me like a monster truck?
It was as if he could not see nor understand the fact that he was in a traffic jam. All he saw was the rear of my vehicle.
I finally moved over to the middle lane (took a while) and then proceeded to move at a cats pace for the next 20 minutes with this idiot in front of me.
The cause of the backup was a traffic accident. The back end of somebody's car got rear ended.
The moron who kept flashing his lights at me probably got home a whole 30 seconds faster for acting like a complete jerk.
The point of the story?
Some people simply can't see the forest for the trees. Even if they're in a traffic jam, all they see is the one thing in front of them, not many. All they care about is themselves. Nobody else matters. They can't see the big picture to save their souls.
Must have been a government employee.
