I have road rage. I tend to yell and make angry faces and gestures when people cut me off or do something otherwise stupid. I also tend to drive a bit aggressively, though I've made a real effort to curb that behavior lately.
I don't have road rage, I usually laugh at people who seem to get all worked up by something insignificant. I always let people merge the lane, no problem with that. But I seem to be the one causing road rage, or at least attributing to people's speeding. It's especially noticeable on the highways when I'm going at the correct speed and there are always people wanting to pass. What's up with that? Can't they stand driving behind anybody and just feel the need to pass everybody? Then I'll do my little passive-aggressive routine in my head: What's the rush? Oh, nice to meet you at the next stop light. Oh, you'll get there 20 seconds faster? Well, good for you. I'll be the one laughing out loud when I pass you after you get pulled over by cops.
I have all the time in the world and I'm not going to go all spastic just because people can't handle others driving around them. I'm not deliberately trying to do anything to cause people road rage but I think that's already rooted deeper in something personal for them and they can't handle it other than getting angry at little things that bother them.
