Road Rage

I had an appointment this morning so I had to take Nellie Bell out of the garage. She is old and tired and on top of that she let me know she does not care for cold weather. She proved it to me by dying at every traffic light. I had no idea she was so sensitive to cold weather or I would have let her warm up before I took off. Highly irritating, and especially at one traffic stop. The man behind me tried to help the situation along by blasting his horn a few times. That time the car died about three different times before it would keep going. When it finally stayed alive enough for me to move forward I was so tempted to give the man behind me a ‘Thank You’ sign or whatever you call it. I decided it probably wouldn’t be a good idea.
That’s all I have to say about that.

I remember my parents always warmed up their cars in cold weather. They just seemed to run better. I warm my truck up on extremely cold days, but during the rest of the year it works well once it idols down. I might have gotten out and asked the man behind me for a ride, since he was such a ____ing expert, though.

You gotta watch out for those folks suffering road rage, Lorrene. Some of them can be packing. :-)
