But then - everything starts back up and about 30 minutes added to my morning drive.
If I've learned anything from the past few days, it's that being a courteous driver, or doing the right thing (like avoiding gridlock) only empowers other drivers to inch into the spot that should have been mine across the intersection! These are not the actions of courteous drivers - rather invitations to brawl (sorry, the memories of this morning's offenses are still fresh).
So today, my ode to opportunistic drivers (and the Traffic Gods) is this song. I still love the world, and I mean this last bit most sincerely: XO
