#8 - A pet peeve - it's time to rant!

Rude drivers.

If you are going to go slow, get out of the right lane.  I have been sitting here with my indicator on for 5 minutes watching this woman pack her groceries into her boot, if you DARE steal my spot after seeing it 2 seconds ago, I will chase you down and make you sorry.  Just because you're on a motorbike, doesn't mean you get to make your way to the front of the line of traffic waiting at the red light.  'P' platers, it is not a race.  Incase you haven't yet realised, skidding your tyres and putting the petal to the metal will set you back a few extra thousand dollars a year then what the rest of us pay to stay on the road.  When you need to merge up ahead, don't race up to the end of your lane and then expect me to happily let you in, if I let you in at all.  Guess what? You have indicator.  Use it.  Hey have you seen those cool signs on the side of the road that say how fast you should go?  I'm pretty sure most roads have a shoulder, just incase you forgot your brain, when you're turning, use it.  Cutting corners is like fingernails on a chalkboard - it's just not OK folks.

I promise I don't have road rage.  I just grunt and speak loudly at people with my windows up.....

Girl, I am TOTALLY with you on this one!! Sadly, most drivers here in LA don't even know how to use an indicator but they sure know how to speed =-\

Glad to know I'm not the only one shouting at bad drivers in the privacy of my rolled up windows car!! ;)

I am sure my children have learnt some new words from sitting in the car with me driving. Mad drivers drive me nuts! Thanks for Rewinding x
