Driving Miss Crazy

So, you're following someone in traffic. You need to get somewhere, and they, apparently, do not. They slow down very slowly approaching a red light. They leave what seems to be two car lengths between them and the car in front of them. Then, when the light turns green, they seem determined to reach the speed limit in some time unit measured by a calendar.

At the first opportunity, of course, you swerve into the other lane, stomp on the gas, and grin with satisfaction as their car continues to shrink in your rear-view mirror. You soon forget the excruciating annoyance they caused you as you reach your destination, turn into the lot and find a sweet parking space.

Until they pull into the space next to you.

I think these drivers exist solely to test my patience. They're winning.
