I'm convinced I have some sort of stupid driver homing beacon on my car. For two mornings in a row now I've had someone change lanes in front of me and I've had to slam on the brakes to keep from hitting them. Both times my morning cup of ice water has gone flying.
In my effort to keep my New Year's resolution, I refrained from thinking or speaking an appropriate curse word or flashing the single finger salute. What I did do was lay on the horn! In fairness to me, I think I stayed pretty calm during yesterdays incident. Well, except for when he drove up next to me, rolled down his window and proceeded to yell at me. YELL...AT ME! Like I was the one who cut him off and spilled his morning cup of whatever. I rolled my window down, yelled that it was his fault and told him to shut up! :)
Well, this morning, in the process of slamming on my breaks, I grabbed my cup as it was tipping over. I wasn't able to keep the contents from emptying all over my radio/ac and floor boards and I wasn't very good at not getting mad. I decided to show my anger by throwing the cup into the dashboard.
Yeah, that was smart. I busted my windshield! I now have a lovely dinner plate sized star burst shaped crack in the middle of my windshield.
Why am I so freakin' stupid? As if I didn't have a million other things to spend $400 on.
