the bowel-emptying terror of it all
That's precisely how I felt every time I was behind the wheel, and a primary reason why I never got my license. I'm more than jealous of anyone who can drive like it's not thang. I try not to live my life in fear, but when it comes to controlling a gigantic, dangerous thing, and being among others trying to do the same.... eh, nope.
On a semi-related note, I've been on the road quite a bit the past month or so, going out of town for shit like Ikea or pro wrestling, and the roads, primarily in Jersey... while also sorta sucking... have been REALLY bad as of late. The congestion is just out of hand, and people also seem extra stupid as well. Our bus driver coming back to Ikea, which Katie can attest to, actually didn't know how to park the thing in Port Authority and practically forgot how to get there. Seriously.
