What's the rush?????

Why is everyone in such a flipping hurry these days???? I am a little shaken because I almost had an accident. I'm going 40+ down Jericho Turnpike, which is a major, busy road here. Some fricking jackass decides he can cut a left turn right in front of my car (a Durango) to go into some store parking lot. I'm telling you, in the space of less than 2 seconds I slammed my brakes down to about 5 mph and just--I mean just--avoided slamming right into the side of his stupid truck. I'm not even sure what it was, except it was bigger than my car. Either way, that would have been a major, major accident. And all because some jackoff decides he has to buy a barbecue or something. I don't know who was driving or who was in that car...but fine way to spend father's day, in an emergency room. I hope there weren't any children because I'm sure the whole thing would have scared the sh*t out of them. All I know is my heart is only just leaving my throat and the back of my head really hurts. Probably had some form of whiplash. But it's better than having an airbag blow up in my face and breaking both my legs.
Stupid jerk.

And my horn LOUD. I just slammed that thing like crazy! There was an outside display with customers so at least I would have had many witnesses.

I'm alive. I think I'm staying in for the rest of the day. I, for one, am never in a rush to do anything.

Oh my gosh!! Thank goodness you are ok.

I hate those almost accidents. They just leave you trembling for days. But at least they didn't happen. And yes - they always make me VERY grateful to be alive!!!

Thanks, Janice. I got over it fast. I was more p-o'd than anything.
