Thank You

To the anonymous motorist who patiently drove a safe and extra courteous distance behind me all the way down Cambridge Street as I rode home tonight in the rain,  not itching to pass or breathing down my neck.

I can normally keep pace with traffic speed down this hill, but heavy rain made me both reluctant to build up too much speed for fear of not being able to stop suddenly, and fanatical about aggressive lane positioning.  This driver (what's the opposite of Masshole?)  realized that perhaps on a rainy night we all need to go a little slower, be a little more careful of the safety of our fellow road users.

Thanks- I wish they were all like you!
