Did you have a 'WOO HOO' moment this week?

This morning was running a little late going to work but the benefit was that the highway was not bumper to bumper. As I turned onto the top of the on-ramp, noticed there was absolutely no traffic on the ramp nor on the highway, so guess what I did....??? Buried it!!! Was doing 80 by the time I hit the bottom of the ramp and was going full speed on the highway.

Not THAT was fun!!! WOO HOO!!!!

I have a woohoo moment everyday. I love to redline and downshift this car. Of course I don't downshift from or to a redline. That would be ignorant. Just had to clear that up.

Yeah, if you did that it would be a "RUH ROH" moment!

Okay...here's something that happened to me a couple days ago. Was coming home and there's a bad piece of road where two highways merge so everyone tries to be courteous to let people merge from one to the other. Anyways, was trying to merge right and some idiot kept closing the hole for me. I tried nicely twice (w/signal) then the third time I made a spot. Well then the jerk decided he wanted to tailgate me so gave him the one finger salute to let him know I acknowledged him, then he decided he wanted to put his high beams on while tailgating, so I gave him both fingers.

Well that must've ticked him off cause he stayed on my bumper and it was tight traffic so I couldn't do anything. When I went to get off my exit, he fell in behind me so I decided to swerve out to go to the next one. Guess what....he got back on and behind me again. I knew then I was dealing with a BIG jerk.

So...got off the next exit, took him down a couple turns to see if he was indeed following me (and he was), so the second I got to a good stretch of open road I geared down to 'S' and smoked him. Okay, he was driving a van so he never had a chance, but it was pretty exhilirating to keep him on the hook till I could get the perfect spot to leave him standing. I'd like to been a fly in his van as he tried to keep up. He had to have been livid.

I had a guy in a minivan so close to my ass the other night I couldn't even see his headlights...on the highway...and he could've passed me. People like that just piss me off and make the road unsafe for everyone around. If you're reading this and you drive like that, I HATE you. Absolutely no reason for it.
