We've all had experiences with road rage.
But we shy people have different ways of expressing (read: internalizing) it.
Truthfully, it's less "road rage" and more "road frustration."
But the signs are always clear.
1. Like the first thought you have when you see someone who was recklessly weaving through traffic get pulled over five minutes later.
2. When drivers are going considerably slower than the posted speed limit.
3. Or merge without indicating said merger with their blinker.
4. When someone cuts you off as if you were going too slow, and then proceeds to slow down in front of you.
5. When you're in traffic.
6. When you see other people speeding.
7. There's always those moments when a cyclist is being obnoxious.
8. When construction is going on, and there's only one lane for both directions.
9. And when someone is still stopped at a green light because they're on their phone.
10. Or when someone won't turn right on a red light.
11. You get frustrated.
12. You don't yell. You don't curse.
13. You don't fume with anger so much so that you start seeing red.
14. But when that person in the parking spot next to you clearly didn't know what they were doing.
15. Or people just start honking for no reason.
16. You just sit there: frustrated and disappointed, with a million annoyed thoughts racing through your head.
But at least it's better than being a loud, obnoxious loud road rager.
Because we get over the terrible drivers of the world a lot quicker than them.
And definitely save ourselves the embarrassment of rage-induced scenes of ridiculousness.
So own your passive-aggressive road rage, shy, quiet, or introverted people of the world.
