oday, I saw a very interesting demonstration of power in its raw state.
I was driving to work – it was after the rush hour in the morning. I was behind a Black Land Rover and we were both waiting to cross a major road. There is no traffic light at this point and it’s a high traffic area – there is also a T-Junction just up ahead. We were on a connecting road and obviously the right of way was not ours, however, all the cars (on the main road) gave way to the Black Land Rover!
Couple of intersections later, I again encountered the same Land Rover – this time, there was a traffic light and the light was red for the Land Rover. The guy crossed the intersection (at a red light) and no one turned a hair. Go figure!
Might is right or as they say, “the King is Dead. Long live the King!”
