Good or bad?

This morning there was a guy just hanging on my bumper. There was no reason for it, we were part of a long line of cars and you can't pass there.

Than I had to turn left and big cement truck was waiting there to turn left. So I gave him a wave and let him get on - and I turned left and the bumper riding guy was stuck behind cement truck

Now I feel satisfaction from the act of kindness - and even bigger satifaction for frigging it up for that guy behind me - the road goes on for a long stretch with no chance to pass

Sooo - who counts it for me today? The heaven or the hell?

Not really, but I have to drive on the Capital Beltway today - you never know what's gonna happen there.

I would say heaven - but with a noisy washing machine and an inoperable drier.

I say you have positive Karma from the cement truck driver and you get bonus points for letting your positive karma slow down the jack leg, tail gating, cork soaker behind you!

It's the first thing I think of when ever I hear anything about a long line of cars.
