Ask Paul B: Road Rage-OutRAGEous Life or Death Highway!

... #ad▼

Dear Paul B,

My husband “Larry” is a very offensive driver. He MUST be in front of all traffic, honks at everyone, and even tells little old ladies to stay off the road. He carries a tire iron under his seat, and thinks that he might need it one day. I am embarrassed by his behavior and need YOUR HELP to calm him down. He gets many tickets but seems to get off in court with supervision. I’m worried about him.

Dear WW,

Larry is cruisin’ for way more than just a Bruisin’… Drivers have guns, knives, or just bare hands to kill others today. He is playing with fire, and you are a target (any kids at home?) as well. There are drug-induced drivers, drunk ones, or just nutty ones who are looking to slug it out with some “other idiot” who thinks he owns the road. Not long ago, I was driving a bit too fast, and tried to pass a car. He wouldn’t let me in, and I cut him off, gave him an “unkind message” and met him at the light. He was driving a tiny Porsche, but when he exited, he looked like a three-flat. As I saw this 300 lb. man of steel, I wondered if I had enough life insurance for my kids. I smiled, and said “Didn’t know you were that big.” He smiled and told me to “watch myself” as he walked back to his car. I still remember that incident, and was glad that I had carried an extra pair of underwear….. Please, WW, tell Larry that you will NOT drive with him if he continues to ask for trouble. Google “road rage,” and he’ll see the light…Good luck to you both…
