Rage

I made the drive back from Oklahoma yesterday. It was nice and easy. Not too much traffic so it went well. It was mostly uneventful, with a small exception.

As I was driving South on 75, I saw something on the North side that caught my attention. This was outside of McKinney still, so pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Anyway, on the Northbound lane a truck and a car had pulled over onto the shoulder and about four individuals were standing in between the two vehicles. I figured someone had had car troubles and the other was helping out. Instead, what I saw was four people standing between two cars, and then one of the guys lunged at one of the others and hit him right in the face. And then the fight was on. Unfortunately, I was traveling at 70 mph the other direction, so I did not get to watch the outcome.

I just could not, and still can not, figure out why they would be fighting on the side of the road. If it was a case of road rage, why the Hell did they pull over in the first place? And it's not like there was a lot of traffic to really get fussy about. Idiots. I would not have been surprised if they rolled out onto the highway into the path of a truck.

The rest of the evening was uneventful.
