"Special" Driver

I don't have a lot of time to dawdle on Mondays. When I get off work I have to scoot on home and get my yoga mat for class at the community center. By the time class is over and I get back home, it's almost bedtime so I have to seize and idea and run with it.
I got stressed driving in to work this morning because of a "special" driver. I got behind a slow moving truck loaded with bricks. It was a double yellow line and a hard curve in the road so I turned up the CD and settled in until we reached a passing spot a few miles up the road. I looked in my mirror and this "special" driver in a Mustang came blowing by me at about 80 mph. Up ahead I saw a car coming around the curve. I slowed down so the "special" person could get in between me and the slow moving truck but he never touched his breaks. The oncoming car left the road and the truck braked to allow the Mustang to get back in the right lane. Fortunately the oncoming car was able to come to a stop on the shoulder of the road and then get safely back on the road. It happened so fast that I didn't get a chance to get the tag number.
But "special" guy, know this: I know what your car looks like and I'll be on the lookout for you in the future. I will get your tag number and report the incident to the sheriff. It will probably be a waste of time, but it will make me fell better.
