Update: Tennessee Drivers Continue to Scare Me

Yesterday, I wrote what I consider to be a witty piece about the drivers in Tennessee. In short, I said that they are not so good at the steering and braking and that I spend every second that I am on the road trying my best to avoid a fiery and unpleasant death. I am certain that, if my readership were larger, this would have been a very controversial piece. Fortunately my blog reaches an audience of eight people (four if you remove my immediate family), so I did not feel this backlash.

I was briefly concerned, though, that Tennessee drivers would be offended. The last thing I want is for them to get behind the wheel while upset. I thought that I might have been a bit harsh. They could not be that bad at driving.

Then this evening, I pulled into a parking lot. As I was driving, I saw a car whip out of its spot. The driver had opted to ignore the fact that it was dark outside, declining the option of headlights. I slammed on my brakes and watched them quickly dart through another spot, nearly taking out a handicapped sign and a cart corral.

Therefore, Tennessee, you will not be receiving an apology from me. You will get credit for stocking Diet Red Crème Soda in your grocery stores, but I will continue to be terrified of every vehicle on Nashville’s roads.

Maybe if everyone drove bumper cars…

    • To be fair, though, most of the people in Tennessee are illiterate.

      To all those from Tennessee that read that, I apologize. I would ask you not to show it to your friends, but they probably couldn’t read it anyway.

      To the friends that actually could read that, I apologize. And congratulations on your literacy.
