Masshole experience #999

There are Massholes who try to race you at stop lights. Or cut you off for no apparent reason. Or turn from the wrong lane. But sometimes their odd behavior just mystifies me.

One day last week I was driving down VFW Parkway and turned on my signal to let the car in the right lane know that I planned to change lanes when they began honking furiously at me! For putting my turn signal on!

Note- I had not even started to change lane, yet the Masshole continued to honk! I'm sorry, did I somehow offend you by being a safe driver and obeying the rules of the (slushy and messy) road? Would you rather I had simply cut you off and scared the shit out of you on that dark and slippery road?

And to make it worse, it's not like the driver sped up to claim their road space... WTF?!

Didn't you know that using a blinker in MA is a sign of weakness?

Lemme guess, you were probably going 2 mph in a 30 zone and were planning on cutting him off causing him to slam on the breaks and avoid you. There is such a thing as defensive driving ya know.

Me? Drive 2 mph? No way dude, I was going with the speed of traffic.

I'm just worried (though anonymous) because so many of these posts are angry or critical. Let some sunshine into the house. Any random acts of kindness on the road, in the neighborhood or at work? :) I want to read something that makes me smile and I'm sure you've got things for smiling times.

In Mass., using a signal gives away your game plan, and will cause the other driver to speed up to close the space - not a good idea.
