Road Rage

Olive and I were nearly killed the other day by an angry driver!! It was insane!!

Olive picked me up from the train station after work the other day and we had only gone about a hundred metres up the road when this car came zooming up at close to 100km/hr (in a 60km/hr zone!), hooned right up our ass then overtook when we were so close to a roundabout. Olive got angry 'What the f*ck' and flipped the bird at this guy. The driver of the other car slammed his breaks on right in front of us and got out of his car yelling and shaking his fist. He started towards us and Olive put the car into reverse and moved away slowly. The guy got back in his car so fast and reversed his car as fast as he could towards us! I freaked! He was trying to smash Olives band new shiney car! He's only had it for bout a month! And this car would've wreaked his car completely! Not to mention the cars behind us who were still moving towards us while we were reversing!

So, Olive took evasive action and moved into the other side of the road, still reversing! All the way back to the train station. The guy didn't follow us that far but Gee-sus!

I managed to get his licence plate number and we filed a report with the police. I'm always telling Olive that he shouldn't flip his finger at other drivers cos there are some crazy people out there who would do anything. I'm sure that his car would have been damaged if it wasn't for his quick thinking but it wouldn't have happened if he hadn't shown the other driver that particular finger.

Moral of the story: Watch out for angry drivers, don't flip the bird, make sure you know how to drive your car to avoid situations like this one!

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."
