Today's Driving Idiots...

What the HELL is wrong with people???

In our ride in today, the road in front of my neighborhood is 55 mph. We cruising along at least at 60 mph, when the woman in front of me decides the guy turning out of an office complex onto the road we're on should be let out. While this is a very nice gesture, going from 60 to 0, with no warning to the people behind you about WHAT you are doing or WHY you are doing it is CRAAAAAZZZEEE... Not to mention it'd be MY FAULT for rear-ending her (and totaling her Chevy Malibu w/my huge truck) AND I'd have to be rushed to the hospital, but have to wait for someone to come retrieve my son...oh the mess! So I hope she understood when I laid on the truck's horn and almost skidded into her, as the people behind me swerved for the ditches. Nice work lady.

THEN - we're taking a local shortcut thru an office park (still behind the same nutty lady) and she thinks I'm chasing her maybe because she's FLYING THRU it... anyway, a parking shuttle comes off the ramp to my right and apparently wants to turn left at the light, which is THREE LANES over...and just cruises across the lanes almost hitting me and the cars in the 2 lanes next to me. Nice.

Grrrr... AND because of the work they're doing in the garage, the only spaces available are ON TOP and we're getting ice today.... also, very nice. It'll be fun cleaning off my car and walking to it!!!!

Tell me about it.. I had my 30 week checkup today in Fairfax, and when I left... it was starting to snow.. STARTING. You woulda thought there was 6 inches on the ground as slow as some folks were driving... OH the joys! :) But I'm glad you made it to work in this weather, and hope you get to leave early so it's not too bad of a drive home (play the "I could go into labor at anytime" card if you must... :)

I hate that SO. MUCH. On my way home there is an area where another road kind of merges into the main road I take, but they have a yield. It never fails that people STOP to let the "yielders" in - I'm like "THIS IS WHY I TAKE THIS ROAD, BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE TO YIELD!!!!"

I really hate stupid drivers. My daughter says the only times she has seen me really mad or be ugly to people is while I'm driving. I may have road rage.
