Road Rage.

Extracts from this document...


Road Rage Here we go again. Its Friday night and I am in my usual place, the supermarket. After a hard week at work the last place I want to be is Tescos. Why should I have to do it anyway? Well according to my family it's my job. My mood was not improved by the way that the trolley had developed a mind of it's own. I struggled to steer it across the car park to my car. I popped the boot and heaved the heavy shopping inside. I was so fed up by this time that I could not be bothered to return my trolley to the trolley park. Instead with determined defiance I parked it in the space next to my car. If I was to be inconvenienced then so were other people. I sat in the car and turned on the engine. I continued to sit for a few minutes listening to the purring of the engine and trying to relax. I remembered that I had a new classical CD in the glove box so I reached over retrieved it and put it in the stereo. ...read more.


With a sharp intake of breath I hit the brakes, slowed down and looked around me. I could see headlights flashing behind me. Oh dear, I thought, realizing that all the noise was for my benefit. I had obviously cut this other car up but it wasn't intentional. Looking in my rear view mirror it looked as though the car was increasing its speed and coming up behind me. It came up so close that I thought that it was going to hit me. I gently hit my accelerator and my car pulled away. I breathed again, it felt like I had been holding my breath for ages.

I was not overly bothered that I had caused a problem for this driver, it was just one of those things. My car moved to the right, hugging the roundabout as it went. Nearly home now I thought. "BEEP BEEP!" I couldn't believe! ...read more.


I was being pathetic. There was nothing to worry about, after all I was just yards from my home. Cross the road and I would be indoors. I climbed out of the car and lifted the shopping bags from the boot. I placed them on the concrete path at the side of the garage. I locked the car and the garage. Picking up the shopping bags I had an eerie feeling again. I looked cautiously around the dimly lit street. I breathed in deeply and exhaled slowly. I was being very silly, I was not going to allow my mind to start playing tricks on me now. There was nothing to worry about, I was virtually outside my house. I began to walk across the garages and reached the road. As my left foot lifted from the kerb and touched the road I turned my head to the right. I was blinded by a dazzling set of headlights that flashed on with their beam full. There was a car parked in the middle of the road with its engine running softly, just twenty feet from me! It couldn't be. Could it? Louise Thomas GCSE English 03/04 ...read more.
