Keep America Moving

Let me tell you a little about the truck driver you just flipped off because he was passing another truck, and you had to cancel the cruise control and slow down until he completed the pass and moved back over.

A touching little essay from a novel perspective.  I'm one of those guys who only uses the left lane to pass, and who tends to crowd drivers who camp their cars out there in a 55-mile-an-hour rolling-roadblock formation.  Occasionally, I'm the guy who flashes his headlights autobahn-style at the aforementioned campers; and therefore I'm typically receiving a flip-off rather than giving one.  The most offensive gesture I ever make from behind the wheel is a severe frown combined with a scathing, shoulder-slumping sigh.

Nevertheless, I will think twice before I register such complaints in the future.
