How fair is that?

When, in a narrow lane, I overtake a car which is, in my opinion, being driven so slowly that I could get down and walk up to the driver of that car and ask him to move it, I am being only fair to the rules of the road.

And, when I am enjoying the drive or I know I am going to reach my destination on time or earlier and am ‘aaram-se’ driving and someone honks and I refuse to budge just to annoy him/her further, it is my right as a fellow human to do so.


When, in a narrow lane, I overtake a car and actually end up just ahead of it in a long line of cars in a traffic jam and the driver of the other smirks, I am right to exclaim (to myself),”so what, at least I am not behind the moron who badly needs driving lessons”

When, in a narrow lane, a car overtakes me and ends up just ahead of me in a long line of cars in a traffic jam, I am again right to exclaim (to myself, with a smirk),”now what loser, where have you ended up after speeding past me. You shouldn’t have done that you moron and you badly need driving lessons anyway”

When searching for a parking lot in Manipal Hospital, if a car-driver guides me to reverse my car out of a space and goes beep*beep*beep thinking I am going to ram into the nearby car, I am right in explaining (professing?) to him that I have judged the space correctly and he need not think lady drivers can’t drive properly.

When another lady driver in a narrow lane tries to overtake me in a not-so-blind curve, but comes face to face with a tempo traveler, in turn having to reverse her car to let the other vehicle pass, I am right in snickering and saying “Serves you right, lady!” and I am only more right when I follow that up with a prayer “God, please teach these women how to drive”.


But I think I am being fair enough!

Good ones.... Wud help fellow lady drivers...

Anyway it reminded me of a joke. A car didn't budge when the signal light changed from red to green. It passed the whole cycle again but the car didn't budge. The traffic police came to the car and saw a confused lady at the wheels and smiled at her, "It looks like we don't have any color you like, Madam" :)

Hi Suresh,

LOL! But really, women drivers are definitely not dumb man. They should ban these jokes.

and thanks very much for stopping by.
