Thanks to Swingman, for reminding me/us of the ubiquity of
irrationally violent people :-) Somebody interrupts your cell phone
call -- scientifically, the equivalent of a DUI -- and you're going to
do physical harm to them.
In a world where road rage exists, it is not a good idea to engage in any
kind of activity that could set somebody off. It is unbelievable to me all
these stories where some minor slight, comment or gesture quickly esculates
to serious injury or a death. I make a counscious effort to be as courteous
as possible out there in the world.
It is like my old martial arts instructor said. You never pick a fight with
anybody because you have no idea how skilled they are. In other words, they
could kick your ass. So you behave yourself.
