Message to the Woman in the Dark Green Minivan

I pray that your children are safe at home when you finally rear-end someone due to your craptastic driving abilities.

In case you didn’t notice, about 6 inches of snow accumulated on the ground last night and it’s been rather cold since then. You may be aware that snow and ice don’t melt unless it gets warm, but you apparently didn’t apply that knowledge to real life this evening when you got into your minivan with your children strapped into the back seat.

IF I CAN’T SEE YOUR FRONT TIRES IN MY REAR VIEW MIRROR, YOU ARE TOO CLOSE! Even on a normal day, you’re too close, but especially on a day like today when the roads still have snow and ice covering them and we are going 45 mph down a curvy hill with other cars in the lane next to us and coming at us on the other side of the road. I don’t know what you were late for, but I’m pretty sure that arriving late is better than KILLING YOUR CHILDREN (and possibly me and maybe even yourself).

(note: I did not slam on my brakes to “scare her”, though I really wanted to. I value my life and the lives of her children, even if she obviously does not. And no, Mom, I didn’t make any sort of rude gestures, though I did shake my head as she swerved around me and started tailgating the new car in front of her. I may have tapped my horn as she considered cutting in front of me where there wasn’t technically room for a minivan, but I’m pretty sure by then she deserved at least that.)

    I am SO glad you wrote that! It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who has those thoughts about other drivers…And I’m not the only one shaking my head as crazy drivers pass me.
