No, that is how I drive on my day off. If I am late to work , I never try to get there any faster....cause really, why?

I see all these drivers on my commute in the morning driving like idiots so they can get to work 30 seconds to a minute sooner, and my only thought is they must have the greatest jobs in the world.

Not saying I hate my job, but it ain't worth killing myself over.

So, would this be an illustration of driving it like you stole it? This guy has a death wish!! I'm surprised he didn't pull wheelies when running down between the cars.

My buddy in DE calls people that ride like this "organ donors." They're all over Philly too. I was on the back roads near the UPS hub when a band of about 20 crotch rocket guys came blazin' passed me on either side. I was on the meanie. The last dude pulls up next to me and revs his engine a couple times. I looked at him, waved him off and shook my head. He shrugged, popped a wheelie and was outta there. Not me, sorry fellas. Find another cruiser to mess with.

^ Yeah a couple things stopped me from doing that. There's enough negativity out there without me adding to it, he got my point, and of course there were 20 of them and one of me. If he took it personal I didn't want to be on the recieving end. I'm pretty good but no one's that good. LOL!!!!
