Storytime: Extreme Road Rage?! 😨

Hey cupcakes! I was brainstorming some post ideas the other day and realized that I haven't written a storytime post since JULY of last year (when I was attacked by a bird LOL). Oops. That is probably because nothing too crazy has happened in my life that would inspire me to write a storytime post, but that all changed about three weeks ago....

Alright, so this interesting event took place when I was home for winter break. This is my favorite break for multiple reasons:

1. No homework - all of the fall semester classes are over and the new ones haven't started yet. This makes winter break the only one where there is absolutely no chance of homework! 🎉
2. I get to relax and spend time with friends and family
3. My boyfriend is only an hour instead of 2.5 hours from me

As the third bullet point mentions, my boyfriend is a lot closer when we are both home (long story short: we went to the same high school and my parents moved to a different town about an hour away after we went off to college in two cities about 2.5 hours apart). After spending the day at his house, I was driving home at 11:30 PM...

The ride is pretty easy and at that time of night there aren't usually many other people on the road. When I was about 15 minutes away from my house, I was on a 55 mph road with four lanes (two for each direction). As I enjoy thinking while I drive and don't tend to speed, I was going about 58 mph in the right lane.

A car passed me on the left (as they should have), and in about 3 minutes another car also passed me.

The first car that had passed me was still in the left lane, and (apparently) wasn't going fast enough for the second car. But, mind you, the whole right lane was completely open if the car really wanted to get by.

The second car drove super close to the first and proceeded to turn on their brights multiple times.

After about three minutes of this, I guess they had a change of heart and proceeded to get in the right lane to pass them. I was only a little bit behind this and was watching this all go down... When the second car was in line with the first I saw something fly from it and arc in the air, glittering in the moonlight.

IT WAS A WINDSHIELD WIPER FLUID BOTTLE!!!! They literally threw a full bottle of windshield wiper fluid at the other car. 😂

The bottle went no where near the first car (they clearly could not aim), and I drove by the bottle emptying itself in the left lane - now it was both pollution and a road hazard but there was no way I was going to stop to pick it up in case something else went down with those people. 😬

  1. Oh my goodness! People are crazy, I swear. I just don't understand what causes people to lash out and react like this. I'm glad no one was hurt!
