A good deed

The other day, I was starting my car just as the light turned green, when a car honked behind me. Surprised, I thought: "this driver is really impatient!" Then he passed me to my right, and I got annoyed.

So, at the next red light, instead of sitting patiently behind him, I changed lanes and, with my car lined up next to his, I waited in high alert. When the light turned green, I took advantage of my stick shift to start the car sharply. Vroom!

The other driver reacted by speeding up, passed me and positioned himself in front of me, his car squarely straddling the center line in such a way that I would not be able to pass him on either side. I had to laugh!

By giving that stranger a chance to compete and win, I probably made his day. He must have felt really good about himself, all thanks to me!

And that was my good deed for the day.
