I’ve been told that I drive like a little old lady. I don’t know if I’d go that far, but I will admit that I’m never really in a hurry to get from point A to point B. There aren’t many things that frustrate me while driving. The only thing that sticks out in my mind that frustrates me to no end is when I’m driving on the highway and I get into my groove, meaning I have my cruise control set at 73 mph, and some erratic driver comes along and crowds my safety bubble. So instead of being able to enjoy a stress-free ride, I have to readjust my speed, wasting precious gas by either slowing down or speeding up to regain my safety bubble. I do get annoyed because nine times out of ten, the driver that disrupted the safety bubble only did so to get ahead of one car and then slows down immediately afterward. In the whole scheme of things, is this the worst? No, of course not, I just find offense with it because it throws a few things out of whack, the safety bubble, the fuel efficiency of cruise control and my relaxation at the wheel. So there you have it, my albatross of the road.
