If Only


If Only

When I am in traffic and I’m cut off by some jerk
who makes me miss that long light that makes me late for work,
I imagine cutting him off at some future light;
and when he catches up to me, spoiling for a fight,
mouthing a nasty tirade that puts me in my place,
I’ll have a scintillating comeback to spew into his face.


The prompt words today are comeback, traffic, scintillating, tirade. Here are the links to their prompt sites:

    Sadly these days more and more people are not content with just ‘mouthing off’ a nasty tirade and are resorting to fists and even heads! through the ( closed) car window!!

    or is that just here??

      Yes.. I witnessed such a display a month ago. One woman stopped her car in the middle of the street, got out of the driver’s seat and walked back to the car behind her, reached through the driver’s window and slapped the woman driver!! The two husband paseengers then got out and engaged, the woman in the rear car got out, but forgot to engage the hand brake and her car ran into the car in front. By the end, three police cars and an ambulance had entered the fray. Yes. Best not to engage.
