It’s Summertime, and the Drivin’ Is Crazy

What is it about the warm weather that brings out every moron who thinks they can drive?

Don’t get me wrong. I’m GLAD they don’t drive in the winter, but I really wish they wouldn’t drive in the summer either.

You know who I’m talking about. That obnoxious teenager who thinks he’s invincible and immortal. Who drives like he is.

How about the chit-chatty, bar-hopping, on-spring-break college students who think they own the road…and the world.

And, of course, now that Grandma and Gramps can stand the weather without a shawl, they join in the fray with their 20-mile-per-hour slow crawl down Hwy. 251.

We normal, responsible drivers don’t stand a chance.

And Candice, if you dare tell anyone about that time I ran a red light with you on spring break, you’re in trouble!

Not quite summer, but it is close. I got behind pokey on State Street today (well, they were just doing the speed limit), but they were being passed by everyone else in the other lane.
ARRGHH, some people!!

I'll admit I get a little angry behind the wheel sometimes, but it's nothing when compared to how mad Brett gets. Two of my good friends are from Wisconsin, and they swear that Illinois drivers have the WORST reputation! I wonder if that's true.
