Rain in Los Angeles, Road Rage Looming, Special Driving Permits Are Needed

It’s raining, I need go to work, and I’m dreading it.  The fact is that when it rains in Los Angeles, the city falls apart.  Nobody knows how to drive to begin with, and even the smallest amount of rain causes the bad drivers to lose their minds and become impossible.

You can drive down the street in Los Angeles in the rain, and tell who is from here and who came here from a place with real weather.  Southern Californians stick out like a sore thumb.  They simply do not know how to handle their vehicles in the rain.

I personally could be a New York City cab driver.  I am a fearless driver and able to handle all kinds of weather having grown up in Canada, and learned to drive in the snow.  Driving is a privilege and if you suck at it you should not be allowed to do it.  It’s that simple.

There should be two types of driver’s licenses.  One for people to drive in dry weather, and one for the rain.  We could take two tests.  Pass one and you can only drive in good weather, pass the only one and you get driving privileges in the rain.  Makes perfect sense.

I am hoping to get to work in one piece, without having to honk my horn, swerve my car, flip the bird, or pull my hair out.  Hopefully the clouds will break and the sun will come out and save us all from the looming road rage.  I am heading out, crossing my fingers, and keeping the faith.
