Be Glad I Don't Have Super Powers

I don't know if it's just me, but it seems to me that where I live, the people are the worst drivers! They don't seem to think or plan a head, tail gate, drive too fast/slow, and are generally oblivious to all other traffic on the roads. As soon as we get a little rain or snow it's so much worse. This is Ottawa people! We live with craptacular weather about eight months out of the year! EVERY YEAR! None of this is new, yet you'd think people retain some of the experience they gained only a year ago. Nope.

I'm a perfectly reasonable person (shut up DH), most of the time. When I get in the car, however, that seems to disappear. People drive me nuts. Usually there's a bit of swearing involved and handgesters. About ten or fifteen minutes in I thank God that I don't have super powers. If I did, a lot of blind justice would be dished out. By "blind" I mean "random" and by "justice" I mean "carnage". The population would drop dramatically every day around rush hour. Of course if you're a good driver, is this really a bad thing? In a few weeks I could change your hour bang-your-head-on-the-steering-wheel drive downtown to a relaxing fifteen minute cruise.

Now let me tell you about the grocery store...

    Sums it up nicely I think.
