There's a special place in Hell for people like this.

A place where they can only drive a Prius. In a block-by-block recreation of new Jersey. With Alanis Morissette wearing clown makeup and singing in the passenger seat. Behind someone who lags behind the car in front of him just enough that people in the other lane get in front of him, making him lag back even more in an unending repetition of getting passed. And he makes it thru the yellow light. Stuck next to the kid w/ 40 15" subs pounding Euro Dance. In the snow. At 5:15PM.
