The New York City Driver

Some people don't know but I used to be a real reckless driver. Not reckless in the sense that I didn't care about my life or my safety but reckless in the fact that I drove like a true New York City Driver. A real New York City Driver is someone who is trying to get to their destination as fast as possible. Since I have matured a little, I realized that even though that way of driving got me where I needed to go fast as shit AND I knew what I was doing so I never got in an accident, the person in the passenger seat experiences something that is just traumatizing.
I'm used to being the driver at all time so when I let my aunt drive who claims she is a NEW YORK CITY DRIVER, I almost had a serious panic attack/mild heart attack. Every move and jolt and change of lane, I thought I was going to die at that instant. As I held onto my seatbelt for dear life and prayed to God, asking him to spare my life, I realized, this is how the fuck I drive.
