A Formal Apology

To the guy who I accidentally cut off today,
I'm sorry. On very rare occasions, I am overwhelmed with the beauty of the music I am listening to, and when I come to a 4-way stop sign I don't realize who's turn it is. When this happens, I just space, and I think oh maybe it's my turn? So I go, but this time around, it was your turn. And you pulled out to go but I cut you off, and you made some rude gestures to me and a face like "wtf mate?"I didn't mean to cut you off, or ruin your day, or steal your turn. 
It was an honest mistake, and I hope you can forgive me. 
Know that if I could, I would have taken back that moment of stupidity and I would have let you go first. But time cannot be erased, nor mistakes like that be fixed. If I could have I would have gotten out of my car and given you a hug and said, "Oh, I'm such an idiot! Silly me! I'm sorry!" But alas, when in a car in the middle of the street, you must drive. Please accept this humble apology. I will be more careful from now on.
Love forever and always,
Alexandra Seal

Question of the Blog:
In a driving situation, are you the aggresive driver or the one that feels sorry for everything?

feel sorry for EVERYTHING

same here. sorry for everything always. i'm always the one who never knows when to go at the stop sign intersections, or when is good timing to turn right on red ... the list goes on.

I'm mildly aggressive, I guess. I often feel tension and 'road rage' building up inside me, but I never scream, yell, flip-off, or anything like that. I live in the bay area, you never know who's got a gun! Although I do feel that I don't use my horn as often as I should.

I'm the guy that will weave through traffic when all three lanes are going 10 mph below the speed limit. It pisses people off sometimes, but oh well.
