the. middle. finger.

I am a pretty cautious person. I am a rule follower for the most part. I lead a fairly quiet life. I avoid trouble at all costs! I don't enjoy confrontation and I certainly don't like to be the one confronting.

Well, as I was driving home from the hospital in Boston tonight, I did something to really make someone in downtown Boston mad.

We're talking:

middle finger
furious horn honking
roll down the window screaming

Yeah, Mr Mass. lic# 139-*** was M-A-D at me!!

Want to know what I did?

It was REALLY bad. I mean, clearly by his reaction I was murdering a small child.

Right.

Well, people, I had the audacity to....wait for it...let a parked car pull in front of me. We were at a stop light so I nicely stayed back a little and waved the driver on.

The man behind me? lic # 139-*** pulled up really closely to the back of my car, laid on his horn for what felt like 5 minutes at the red light. He got in the lane next to me as quickly as he could and did the above.

I went home and told my dad. His response? "Pray for him"

*grumble* grumble* grumble*

I may or may not have had to repent and ask for the Lord's forgiveness for the thoughts about Mr. lic #139-*** running through my head while driving. :p

That's exactly why I never ever drive in Boston. It's down right scary.

How dare you! you were trying to be nice and considerate? What were you thinking? :) Oooh...don't you hate it when your dad is right.

Wow, Liz...you are really a reckless driver. Clearly you need to just ride a bicycle.

When stuff like this happens to my husband and/or me, we always say "smile at him/her with the love of the Lord!"

We went to Boston this fall and I couldn't believe how crazy the driving was. Unfortunately, I'm a horn-honker. But I would never honk at you for letting someone out of a parking spot.

That's the difference between the north and the south; in the South, people would have stopped, applauded, shaken your hand, and then allowed four other cars to get in front of them!

Next time just show him your gun.

kidding.

When I first saw this I saw the list of questionable activites first and I thought, "why is Liz telling us she did all that?"
