    From Dr. Jekyl To Mr. Hyde On The Road!


    When most human beings get into a vehicle and start to drive; a change in their personalities takes place. I have seen this happen many, many times to others as a passenger in their car. I, too, am a very different person while driving. No I am not going to delve into why humans do this; I only bring it up because of this article about driving etiquette:

    I noticed the Mr Hyde in myself when driving so a few years ago made the concious decision to relax behind the wheel. I think I'm a better driver for it and am certainly less stressed when I arrive at my destination.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    My wife and I have noticed that most other drivers appear mad when they're behind the wheel. Many of them drive aggressively or oblivious to the world.
    Like Elija, we have opted to relax and not compete (drive courteously in fact) and feel much better.

    Riding Motorcycles puts you in a different universe and mind set since

    2. Casts
    3. Brain Damage
    4. Death
    5. Europhia

    9. Permanent Good Attitude about everything, grins included.

    When I drive a car or truck I just Zombie out and turn up the radio full blast and drive on auto pilot. No comparison when it comes to reactions in traffic.

    As a professional delivery driver....I cannot for any reason lose my cool when dealing with Jekyl & Hyde types. A phone call to my company could have me in hot water real fast. I still get steamed from time to time but I have learned to just take it out on my windshield by cussing at it profusely under my breath and waving ever so politely.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Not driving anything anymore has certainly done a lot for my temper, composure, and serenity!!
