Kamikaze Drivers

Mike's Common Sense

Like most people I have to work in order to make a living. One of the major problems with having to work for a living is that you have to drive to get there.

I used to live in Rochester, NY. It is a mid sized city and the traffic jams are never very bad.

I now live in Miami, FL. It is a major metropolitan city with many millions of people. Most of them come from other countries, and they drive like it.

I don’t believe I am being prejudiced when I say that they all drive as if they went to the Tokyo Driving Academy; and most of them majored in kamikaze.

I have to be on top of my game every day. My wits clear, joints, and muscles ready for action. Driving to work is a lot like playing “Asteroid” but you are in a car, and it is real. Zigging, zagging, trying to avoid the space debris, I mean…kamikazes.

Drunk drivers are all most nonexistent here in Miami. They are far too easy prey for the kamikazes.

I am contemplating wearing grown up diapers when I dive to and from work. I might as well, I crap my pants every other day or so.

These days we all have a lot of stress in our lives. I believe that the grown up diaper will reduce some of that stress in my life.

Excuse me while I change will you?

Hi Steve! Who doesn't want a hummer? But I would be safer driving a tank.

muley - I've lived in places that are like that - Dallas comes to mind - but it sounds way worse in Miami. I think the crux of the matter is utter selfishness. I've never seen an "accident" where some moron decided he (or mostly 'she') was more important than the other guy. "you better get out of my way" seems to be the driving force (sorry about the pun)

Hi Madame X! You are so right, selfishness, and discourtesy are the cause of most of the accidents.
