Avoiding Road Rage with Air Triangles #BritishDadStuff


(Reconstruction: shot in a stationary vehicle)

You know you're a Great British Dad...
...when you're thinking up new ways to avoid road rage.


We're in the car and we're trying to avoid the inevitable Road Rage - so I put on some Classic FM.

That goes down about as well as you think it would go down with a family locked in for a long drive -- but a jolly tune came on.

(I looked it up, turns out it's the Second Movement of Mahler's Symphony No. 1 - about 16 seconds in)



Then got the whole car to play air-triangle on the bits where the triangle comes in.

It wasn't until the end of the track that it finally hit me... that we're now driving past everyone, with our whole car - everyone - all giving it some air-triangle motions - at them - furiously with our hands.

Just as Mahler intended when he wrote it.
Probably.
