A while back I was running about 65mph on a 75mph Interstate with very light traffic, and thus holding up no one, when I noticed in my mirrors an older pickup truck and travel trailer closing at a good clip. Of course, I was in the right lane, and so was he.

Well, I expected him to leisurely pass me by since the left lane was empty on the uncrowded road. Instead, he pulled up within a few feet of my bumper and BLEW THE HORN.


Knowing the prevalence of and consequences of Road Rage nowadays, I didn't do anything to provoke him except not driving fast enough for him and his pull. I'm sure he had something important to do that was being impeded by me.

After a few seconds of dissatisfaction, it must have finally dawned on him that a tiny turn of his steering wheel to the left would allow him to pass me without further adieu, and eureka! he did so.

Because of my usual habit of watching the road ahead, I didn't look at him as he readily passed me by, probably waving with a single finger.

I'm sure he got on Facebook to complain about my lack of courtesy or something.
