A Day at the Beach...

I spent a day relaxing at the beach with my daughter and mother this past weekend; the trip there was anything but relaxing!

It all started with a freeway closure due to construction. People cutting others off and honking their horns as if the poor person in front of them could move another inch. Some people are so stupid! I don't understand why a traffic jam makes people turn into idiots.

Then I stopped for gas. I HATE PUMPING GAS! I absolutely hate it more than anything. So I had to pump gas. Then afterwards I got a bit lost trying to find the entrance back onto the freeway. My ADHD kicked in and I was looking in one direction and I breezed through a stop sign. Oops! I waved an apology as I drove by the car waiting at the stop sign. I am cute - that should've been enough right? WRONG.

The car behind the car I apologized to decided to chase me down. Yes ladies and gentlemen, he chased me down! The moron raced up beside me and started screaming at me to pull over, at least I think that is what he asked between all the swearing. He chased for the better part of a mile until I pulled into a crowded parking lot - oh yeah friends, it gets better!

I pulled in behind a cop car - I am one smart cookie! I park behind the cop and sit in the car. The moron, blinded by pure rage, got out of his car and walked up to my car window and started yelling about how I could have killed him and how I was irresponsible and a stupid woman driver.
I don't think he ever saw the police officer step out of his car. The officer arrested him right there. Slammed the cuffs on him.

The rest of the day was relaxing. I sat on the shore and collected rocks and beach glass. I got sunburned despite my sunscreen, and at a great burger from a burger shack on the beach. It ended up being a very relaxing day.

    Hahaha! Now THAT is vindication. That's the stuff people always WISH would happen, but never does. I'm glad that guy was taught a lesson. Sheesh!

    Oh, lordy. That's road rage in action, right there. You totally deserved that burger.
