The story in today’s paper about a guy driving a truck who got into some sort of road rage deal — or so the police say — makes one wonder what sort of conversation the guy had with his wife.
Now, I must stress, the road rage part is only alleged by the police. We do not know. If that is what happened, however, it must be embarrassing to have to go home and tell the wife “Oh, by the way honey, I wrecked the truck and endangered our kids’ lives today, but I did show that other guy on the interstate who had the baddest attitude.”
And, we all know his wife will say “Oh, OK dear, as long as you showed him. We can always make new kids.”
Seriously, is this a good argument for insurance policies including a “testosterone-induced stupidity” clause or what? Why should the rest of us have to pay medical bills, and repair bills, for people who do this sort of thing?
I am guessing that everyone who believes in accountability will jump on this.
