I live very close to my office -- a mere 5-minute drive away.
And yet, going from there to here for lunch, I encountered three asshole drivers.
• The guy on the main street who blocked my ability to turn left onto that street, even though the cars were stacked up in front of him at a red light. He wouldn't have lost his place in line or any time by leaving me space to turn. But he just HAD to creep up to the next car in front of him, to protect that 10 feet of space from someone cutting in from somewhere.
• The person turning left across the street from a parking lot, forcing me and the guy coming the other way to slam on our brakes because she couldn't wait the extra 15 seconds for us both to continue driving past ... and there were no drivers behind either of us. And she didn't even have the embarrassed courtesy to put up a hand to motion "sorry."
• The guy who cut across three lanes of traffic, from the far right to the center lane, passing right in front of me, causing me to slam on brakes yet again, because he was such an idiot that he didn't plan for the left turn anywhere in the previous half mile.
I fucking hate asshole drivers.
