I'M OK I'M OK I'M OK
This morning on my way to work was a prime example of why we all loathe semi drivers.
You know when you're in the far right lane on the freeway (with no shoulder, of course) and a car starts coming into your lane?
Naturally you honk, and the car stops.
But what happens when that "car" is a semi?
.... he doesn't stop.
Let's throw in an added "scare factor" here:
On the other side of the median was a drop off.
I was on a bridge over a massive body of water.
Luckily I slammed my breaks fast enough to get by with just a missing rearview mirror. Thank goodness I reacted quickly and slammed on my breaks before he could slam me into the median. I scraped by with a missing rearview mirror.
SO, PORTLAND DRIVERS. If you see a semi with the license plate of 85895, steer clear. Because he's a grade A asshole (sorry for the language, but it's well deserved in this case).
