I know I'm late getting in on this "rage" issue, but here goes.
"I leave for work and I've got 20 minutes. I need a cup of coffee. I've still got 16 minutes. I need to stop by the ATM. I've got 12 minutes to get to work. Okay I'm almost there, I should make it okay. Ah, crap, some moron has crashed his car into the median and now traffic is stalled. HONK. HONK. Finally! ...got past that guy and with 2 minutes to go. GET OUT OF MY WAY, YOU GRANDMA DRIVER.*#? CRAP, I'm 2 minutes late."
"I leave for work and I've got 20 minutes. I wonder what my secretary would like in her coffee? I've still got 16 minutes. I should stop by the ATM, but I'll do that at lunch. Oh my, that guy just crashed his car into the median. I hope he's alright. 'Sir are you okay? Let me call for help.' Ah, crap, I'm going to be late now for sure and my secretary's coffee's getting cold. Well look at that, I'm 2 minutes late and I'm still the first one here!"
One scenerio is about "me" and one is not about "me." Which one are you? I'm about 60% Scenerio2, but part of me still calls slow drivers names under my breath. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know...this was corny.
