Why in the heck do people feel the need to tailgate? And I mean, tailgate like “do I need to raise the lift to my SUV so you can drive up in there” tailgate. Then they pass you like possessed people and stare at you like they are placing a curse on you and sometimes even make these hand/finger gestures. I mean it seems like so much trouble to go through just to get to the red light first!!!
Please explain this phenomenon and how to deal with it when it occurs because I just don’t get it.
Move Over Red Rover
Dear Move Over Red Rover,
I could answer this question with one sentence.
Because people are possessed.
But, that would not be my style.
Here is my thought process on tailgating.
If somebody is riding your butt, they either have to go to the bathroom (and I don’t mean number one) or they are trying to beat their husband home so he doesn’t see the credit card bill that just came in the mail.
Both are very valid and legit reasons.
However, they got themselves into the problem so it is not your job to get them out.
It’s not like you spoon fed them that bean burrito for lunch.
Nor did you shop with their credit card.
Although you should have. You can get a lot of stuff for free that way.
In these situations I advise you to do one thing.
Go 10 miles per hour.
I don’t care if you are in a 70 mph speed zone.
You may think you have seen some good hand gestures so far.
Honey, just wait.
Your driving experience just got a lot funnier.
Just smile and wave back.
And then hang up a sign on your back window that says “Crap or get off the road”
Let me know how it works out.
See you in Heaven.
….And that’s a wrap friends.
