My day on the road
It was one of the rare days that I drive the XR6 to work and everything started off fine until the start of the M2. Two trucks decided to drive side by side down the road, to be fair the one I was behind in the right hand lane was trying to overtake. It was the truck in the left lane that kept on speeding up.
That over and done with, I then had to contend with the usual idiots that sit in the right hand lane doing slower than the speed limit when there are no other cars around. When I went around a woman in a Magna, she took exception to that and decided to speed up, I just let her go and passed her at the toll booth as I have an E tag.
Driving up Epping road, I was just about to pass a truck when out of nowhere a moron in his rodeo came up behind the truck and cut me off (if I didn’t brake he would of went over my bonnet). I was doing a little bit over the limit, God knows how much he was doing. This annoyed the hell out of me so I flashed my lights at him. He slammed on his brakes then started to weave all over the road. Not just side to side gently, I mean he was worse than a race car trying to get heat in the tyres during warm up. Not only did he nearly take out the Statesman next to him but he narrowly missed hitting the razor rail dividing the lanes. As well as this, he would slam his brakes on for no reason, compression lock up the car, accelerate wildly and crunch the gears. This bloke was obviously drunk or stoned. He finally headed towards the North Shore.
Then I had to contend with the idiot that don’t realise what the E tag only lane is for on the tunnel, so they hold everybody up while they wait for help as the is no coin basket.
Going home wasn’t too bad. I missed 2nd gear coming out of the car park. I hate my gear box until it warms up. I’ve vowed to buy the BA in auto if I get the XR6T. Had the usual ricer try and drag me along Epping road and M2. They just get the shits and stop trying after a while. I had a woman in a small car try to race me to a round about that you can only turn left in one lane. Then I had to contend with riceboy in his 2nd hand Skyline at the next round about. He couldn’t beat me through there and just annoyed everybody on the road by constantly changing lanes to try and get ahead of me.
Sitting in the left hand lane at the lights at Sunnyholt road, when I hear a car beside me, in the left hand side. This stupid woman in a QLD registered car was driving along the foot path so she didn’t have to wait in traffic. She drove around the corner on the footpath then got back on the road. How idiotic are some people?
Riceboy in the Skyline finally got around me when I was slowed up by a truck, no doubt convinced that his car is quicker than mine. I couldn’t have cared less, I was two streets from home all I wanted to do was get there!
No wonder there is road rage. I was ready to kill someone yesterday.
