Rants from the road

I'm sure this is a rant and a subject that others have noticed before but, here goes. Why is it that a persons sense of self importance increases with direct proportion to the size of the vehicle they drive? It seems the bigger the SUV or truck the more of a hurry they seem to be in. Is it because it takes them so long to back the boats they drive out of their driveway or do they honestly feel that since they have the biggest gas hog on the road that everybody else has to get out of their way? I'm pretty sure that some of them aim their side mirrors at me. Obviously these people are really in a hurry. Heck, the lady who brushed past me a few days ago didn't even have her kid strapped into the car seat. After she shot by me I noticed her young son watching me from his car seat. The bad thing? He was turned around, facing backwards while kneeling on the seat. Sheesh.

If they don't care about the safety of their kid, they certainly do not care about yours.
Be careful out there!
