#1430: Stupid freaking people

There are about six inches of fresh snow on the ground. The snow was predicted several days in advance, so it's not like it was a surprise or anything. Yet two major highways in the Chicago area have serious delays after each had a 15-car pileup.

I had to take Mom to the bank this morning; on the way back, a moron in a Cadillac SUV was tailgating me on a snow-covered road, presumably because he thought I wasn't going fast enough. (When I let him pass me, he tailgated the guy who had been in front of me.)


I'm starting to think that a whole mess of morons out there have nothing in their brains but a neon light that flashes "GO FASTER" every thirty seconds! (To borrow a phrase.) The simplest and most effective way of avoiding a car wreck in this weather is simply to slow the hell down, yet these idiots insist on driving the way they drive on dry pavement, with predictable results.

"Predictable", that is, to anyone with more than a flashing neon sign for a brain.
