Angry Driver

I think I'm a good driver.  I'm safe and obey most of the traffic laws most of the time, however, I am aware that I am always in a hurry and so I like to find the fastest ways around cars.  That means that sometimes I drive a little close to the car in front of me... It's natural, right?  I mean, I don't do it intentionally.

Over the last few days I have noticed that some people I have been driving behind have gotten a bit upset with me.  Yes, I have been flipped off and I'm sure I was cussed at.

There are two things that come to mind when I think about this:

  1. I honestly don't intend to make people made and so I think they have some serious issues.  Don't take yourself so seriously so that you think everyone else's actions are because of you.
  2. Do I need to change the way I drive?  I'm mean, seriously, people are getting really mad at me.
In answer to the question above, no!  I don't think I should change how I do things just because strangers who may have other issues in their lives, get upset about how I do things.
What do you think?  How do you feel when people don't like how you do things?  Are you going to change just because of how people perceive what you are doing?  What implications are there to decision making like that?
