Description After a long morning of commuting and sitting in Jury duty selection, I was a bit under the impression that along the way to the courthouse I was being bullied by all the semi-trucks that were on the road that day. I kept running into the same UPS truck over and over again. I know this because it had a little pink, added on, banner across the back of the truck that had the driver's name on it. I can't remember her name but her truck kept appearing in front of me during my 20 mile commute, even though I was certain she had turned off the road several times. I also made turns and short cuts. Weird.
