crazy drivers

on my way home from the clinic, i got into a cab. the cab driver probably thought i looked kinda bored so he decided to give me a little adventure.

cruising along EDSA, the driver tried changing lanes when he saw that the lane we were in was gonna end in an island (the middle part of a highway). i dunno if he didn't see it or he ignored it, but a red toyota RAV4 was on the next lane just a little behind us. still, that didn't stop him from trying to go the next lane. when he realized the RAV4 wasn't gonna give in and let us pass first, he braked to a full stop and waited for the RAV4 to pass.

with the driver of the other car probably pissed for the near collision, the car slowed down a little making it hard for my cab to change lanes...in short, naggitgitan. this irked the cab driver and after finally changing lanes, he tried to overtake the RAV4 and quickly swerved in front of it, cutting in to his lane.

this started a small chase, with the red car behind us. at this time too, it seemed all the other vehicles were blowing their horns at us, probably because the cab was cutting in to their lanes too just so we could be ahead of the red car. by this time too, my heart was already on the floor of the taxi.

i dunno what happened but both drivers suddenly stopped the chase. maybe their heads cleared a little and saw the absurdity of it all and went on their ways. or probably, they realized they have other things more important to do than trying to kill each other, with me as their unwilling victim.

it seems i have another reason why i don't want to drive on my own. i don't want to end up like these two crazy drivers.

Good gravy! I'm glad you didn't get hurt and the two drivers backed off. But what gives with the cab driver? I would have been pissed to say the least. you really should call and report his driving. Cabbies are supposed to be professional drivers and not be in a position where road rage even becomes an issue.
