"Road Rage is Righeous"

Guest blogger: Rex Honkscreech
Everyone gives me crap about my driving.  Like if some jerk cuts me off, they think I'm not supposed to cut him off.  Are you freaking kidding me!?  What kind of message am I sending if I don't cut the bastard off?.  It's like saying "That's okay, go ahead cut me off.  I won't retaliate.  Why don't you cut me off again?"  I tell ya, it's like they want me to go all World War II French or something. Sorry.  This one man army rolls over for nobody.  Cut me off, and it's for damn sure I'll cut you off!
People say I'm nuts when I drive off course to follow some jerk and give him the finger.  They're all "What's wrong with you?  Why are you so childish?"
Well, let me introduce you to something called "principles."    You can't let people get away with stuff.  You got stand up for yourself.  When someone makes me mad on the road, he's earned my angry glare and special bird flip.
 Then my wuss friends give me the "but that's dangerous!" speech.  It's a shame how people let fear push them into Wimpyland.  Thank goodness our founding fathers weren't afraid of a little danger.  George Washington and all the other guys didn't go "Oh, we can't get England mad at us!  We might hurt their feelings!  There might be shots fired"
Too bad they didn't live long enough to enjoy driving.  Can't you just see Thomas Jefferson side swiping some idiot who didn't get out of his way?  Or John Adams running some dope off the road?   I bet Benjamin Franklin himself  would invent a special horn that went "F@$% you!".  And he wouldn't be afraid to use it!

As for me, I want that horn. I would use it.
But I do try not to rage, if only because I don't trust the other idiot drivers not to wreck into me. :)

I like this: "Oh, we can't get England mad at us! We might hurt their feelings!"

I also want one of those horns. But I would want mine to be detachable so I could carry it around with me all the time.

Danger Boy,
I'd consider the horn if it somehow came with a shielding device for my car.

Stray,
Thanks! The inside of cars is one of my least favorite things to draw. But I loooove to draw childishly angry characters

Linda,
Thanks. I like the detachable horn idea. Especially if there's a train horn option...

I felt the same way once upon a time and would go crazy if someone did something stupid that pissed me off. But eventually, it dawned on me that there will always be people who do stupid things no matter how many times people give them the finger or retaliate by cutting them off. So whats the point - how does it make things better? It can't undo what the jerk already did and it is likely they will do it again. Are you going to sacrifice your own driving safety by racing to catch up to someone just so you can give them the finger? For me it just doesn't serve a purpose so I just focus on why should I be so angry because some idiot cut me off - it just isn't worth it.
