It makes me upset especially when someone is tail gating me and I cant go Zooom.
Sounds to me that your TCC is just a little slow in locking/unlocking. It (TCC) may also be prematurely engaging too at times. As for the "passing gear" problem, well that could be because the TCC will stay engaged & not let the trans down shift to a lower gear to allow you the extra burst of speed to pass.

my mom'* 4T60-E began to fail within a month or two of having it flushed, it took a while to completely let go, but it finally did

The TCC Solinoid or Valve is part of the Main Control Valve Body inside the Transmission. It can be replaced w/o removing the entire Trans too.
