I've been commuting to Framingham for my new job for about three weeks now, and I realized there are three kinds of commuters:
1. Those with Fast Lane transponders
2. Stunods. (Those who commute everyday, yet for some reason, do not have a Fast Lane transponder.)
3. A$$holes. (Those who commute everyday, don't have Fast Lane, yet drive in the Fast Lane line until the very last second and then try and cut in the front of the Tickets Only line.)
This morning I was driving behind what I would now classify as a #3, if I had to guess what this lady chooses to do. The rusty mint green Toyota was going about 50 mph and I was about to signal into the left lane to pass her, when I noticed her flick a lit butt out the window and speed up a bit. Then after about 30 seconds, her car began to swerve as I noticed both of her hands were off the wheel and up around her head. This stopped after a minute, but then they were right back up in her hair again and she was swerving.
At this point I decided I needed to get out from behind this crazy person, and got in the left lane. As I passed her on the left, I took a quick glance and realized that her hands were off the wheel and she was swerving because she was rolling her hair in giant curlers! As Mr. Bean demonstrated in the episode where he tries to save time by getting dressed and brushing his teeth in the car on the way to the dentist, multi-tasking while driving is pretty dumb and selfish.
