Here in NY we’re getting assaulted by a pretty good Winter storm. I didn’t even know one was due until I had already driven to work and the skies opened up. Generally I will stay at the office if the weather is supposed to clear by the time I leave for the day. Alas, this storm is supposed to continue into the evening leaving anywhere from 6-10 inches of snow.
HEY AL, WHO’S YOUR GOD NOW?!
Anyhow, I decided to leave and work from home so I could avoid driving home through this in the dark. As usual, I got to see some idiocy up close and personal. Leaving Goshen, I get this lowered Integra / Prelude behind me. The roads have a decent layer of snow, and its snowing pretty heavy, so I’m a good 3-4 carlengths behind the pickup truck ahead of me. We’re all doing 35-40mph and this jerk keeps riding up my ass.
I don’t pay much attention to it, hoping that he doesn’t screw up and hit me… I hit the turn signal to get onto my road and so does the jerk behind me. I curse to myself as I don’t want this moron behind me the entire ride home. As I approach, I slow down to 5-10mph and gently take the turn, continuing on my way. Fully expecting the shmuck to be behind me, I instead see him sliding straight towards the guard-rail. Moron took the turn too fast. You’re driving on frozen water, dumbass.
I check my rear-view a minute later and see a minivan in front of the Prelude now who hopefully TOOK IT SLOW the rest of the drive home.
