Speeders

I apologize for being quite annoyed by these irritating yuppies -- usually a white male professional in his 30s or 40s -- who continually brag about how fast they drive. If you ask them, "How long does it take to get there?" they will say, "oh, two hours," but then they add, with a proud sparkle in their eye, "--the way I drive, anyway!" What are these morons implying? That they have the magical ability to avoid traffic congestion, construction, traffic lights? That they just merrily drive 20 mph over the speed limit and never get caught? That they don't mind getting a traffic ticket? My suspicion is that most of these lunkheads are either lying, stupid, or exaggerating. And if they are telling the truth, that means they are signficantly speeding and thus posing a hazard to the rest of us.

I apologize that when someone says "oh, two hours --the way I drive, anyway!" it usually takes me two and a half hours.

Just because you drive a stupid Land Rover doesn't mean the rest of us should have to drive slow.
