Idaho drivers

I was amazed at the article in your newspaper stating that Idaho was picked No. 1 for the rudest drivers. Did they drive in Los Angeles? Or Seattle? Or Denver? And I have heard that the cabdrivers in New York City are a rude lot. Yes, we have rude drivers in Idaho — I’m sure every state has its share. But No. 1? No way. Idaho does not have enough people to be No. 1 in anything (except potato production).

I think Idaho is getting picked on. They are just jealous of our beautiful state and our less stressful way of life here. We wouldn’t trade Idaho for any other state. Just remember to watch out for the other drivers and wave at the polite ones. It might be catching.
