Rage Against The Road

Seattle Times Article Yancy Noll

Nothing can screw-up your day faster than an a-hole weaving in & out of traffic all horns a blazed. Secretly I point my fingers & throwing a voodoo curse on them, hoping a cop will pull their ass over & give ’em a huge ticket.

But last week something happened that makes you think twice about how you handle these, “Rage Against the Road’ers.” Near my neighborhood (actually VERY near), a gentleman, Yancy Noll, was shot, believed to be the victim of Road Rage. Nobody knows quite what happened in the moments before the shooting. Did he accidently cut the driver off? Was he going to slow for the shooter’s liking? Perhaps just honked his horn at him. None of these things are reasons to loose one’s life.

So people, before you lay on that horn & realize you just freaked out a 70 year old lady or think that you need recklessly weave in & out of traffic to get to that appointment, take a breath. Life will go on if you’ve been delayed a few minutes in traffic but it might not if you decided to let your temper take over…

“Somebody Slipped Me A Mickey™…and I woke up middle-aged,” is about a 40-something Gen X’er who woke-up one day & couldn’t find her husband or children (probably because she forgot to have them), where she came from & where the hell she’s going. Her name may or may not be Kate & she may or may not live in the Pacific Northwest. She, for-sure is middle-aged & awesome! View all posts by somebodyslippedmeamickey
