The Solution for Road Rage
I think I made an amazing discovery today - a possible solution for road rage. All you have to do is buy a new car or find some new music that you like. I have made this discovery after many years of research. You see, every time I have a new album or group of songs I like I put them on a CD and play them in my car. I find myself not feeling as much of a need to get to my destination when my experience in the car is more enjoyable. Yesterday, I picked up my new car (2009 Sante Fe) and this morning I was actually grateful when the light turning onto my work street turned amber. My thoughts that usually amount to "bastard!" turned to "Sweet...." as I soaked in the new car smell.
So really, that's it -- the solution. Get a new car every week. Doesn't even have to be new - maybe if we all just swapped cars with each other every week then we'd still be in the honeymoon phase, plus it would have the upside of car anonymity. You know, so the person you cut off last week can't easily hunt you down this week because you're now in a different car.
I think I'm on to something.
