Sometimes I hate morning commutes!

So I have to vent this morning… Sorry. My 1 month old son wakes up at 3:15am and I am up with him until 5 or so. I go back to sleep and oversleep my alarm. I have 1 hour to get to work and it takes me 1 hour to drive to work. I think I can make it on time (I mean I have a WRX for crying out loud )
Stage 1: I jump in my car and 5 miles out of town it get stuck behind a lady driving a 92ish Ford Taurus (color – rust and duct tape). She is passing a semi. The problem… the semi is going 65 mph and she is going 65.000001 mph. I am at a stalemate. I am stuck here for 15 minutes. Now I am not happy and running even later!
Stage 2: I get onto interstate and hit construction. The speed limit drops to 55 but of course everyone is doing 40mph. While I am creeping along a lady in a silver Cadillac STS almost rear ends me. I look back and she is smoking a cigarette, talking on her cell phone, and applying some sort of make-up. How is this even possible!!! Needless to say, I got to work late and may have to go to the doctor’s office to get some blood pressure meds.
Just had to vent to someone. Hope everyone’s commute was better than mine this morning.
