In the Slow Lane

I drive my old car at 50 m.p.h. in the right-hand lane of the freeway. Faster drivers honk, tailgate, flash lights, yell, make finger gestures, and even try to pass on the right-hand side.

Now I do own another car in Michigan. It will do 105 in second gear and has a calculated top speed of 146 m.p.h. So I am not impressed with the antics of these drivers.

I have my stereo, A/C and emission controls, am safe, legal and quite comfortable. If they don't like it, why don't they just leave me alone, take one of the three lanes on my left and pass me?
