As I said that would include funny stories and topics. Here is a topic that I have wanted to discuss since I became able to drive. Possibly one of the most annoying types of road trolls out there are tailgaters.
So here I am driving down the road, jamming out to my music like a rockstar. Everything is perfect, just the right amount space between me and the car ahead of me, perfect speed, on the dot type of perfect speed that I might add. Now picture this, a car is behind me driven by an impatient shark-like teen that wants to tailgate me or maybe just eat me.
So this happens to me ALL the time. It seems like no matter how fast I go or at any speed for that matter, there is always someone that is right behind me that wants to fuse with my car's behind. I'm pretty sure they are invading my car's personal bubble. I mean isn't there like some sort of car code that states "Thou shall not stick front, inside or too close to another's rear."
What are people trying to achieve while doing this? If I go faster, you are still gonna tailgate me, and if I go slower I'm going to be part of a car sandwich?! This got SO out of hand for me that I actually downloaded a speed odometer app. It connects to a satellite(s) and calculates the speed you are driving by the data it sends back and forth, similar to a GPS device. So here I am with my new app on my phone driving down the road testing my speed. Because there seriously can’t be that many people that want to ride my behind every day, but as it turns out my car's speedometer works perfectly.
Now I'm convinced that tailgating is a virus, yeah that’s right a freakin' virus. One that affects you slowly but surely. Until you, yourself, have the urge to become one with the person in front of you. I started having symptoms of this sinful, immoral, angry, atrocious, bad, baneful, base, beastly, calamitous, corrupt, damnable, depraved, destructive, disastrous, execrable, flagitious, foul, harmful, hateful, heinous, hideous, iniquitous, injurious, loathsome, low, maleficent, malevolent, malicious, malignant, nefarious, no good, obscene, offensive, pernicious, poison, rancorous, reprobate, repugnant, repulsive, revolting, spiteful, stinking, ugly, unpleasant, unpropitious, vicious, vile, villainous, wicked, wrathful, wrong virus! So on certain days, when the person in front of me wants to become the mechanical grandma on wheels, I feel the virus inside of me and my car ever so, inches closer and closer...
So do you have this virus? Are you a Road Troll? What are your opinions about tailgaters? Post your comments below.
Oh and a side note, I uploaded new pictures, so check them out under gallery > photoshop.
Maybe I should attach a freakin' cannon to the back of my car! Like this guy, haha!
