I HATE other drivers! I can't figure out where most people learned to drive. They are either swerving all over the road, they don't know how to use a blinker, don't know how to properly use their brakes or they are old and senile and shouldn't even be on the road! Like today, I'm getting off at the Rexburg exit and there is a Yukon in front of me. They did NOT know how to properly use their brakes. They would push on them and then let up, over and over, and then they were doing some kind of tap dance on them like they were trying to spell something out with morse code. If you are going to use your brake then apply steady pressure, otherwise take your stupid foot off the gas and let yourself slow down naturally! They should really teach people how to be courteous to other drivers in drivers ed. Everyday when I leave work I have to pull out of my parking lot onto the busiest street in Rexburg. There is a stoplight about a twenty yards ahead of where I have to pull out. Nobody ever lets me in! I have to wait until the light up ahead has turned green so that all the cars pull forward AND wait for the light behind to turn red so that no new cars pull up. And when the light up ahead turns red, instead of somebody stopping farther back so I can get my nose out there, they pull forward until they are kissing the bumper in front of them! How rude! It is so frustrating! And blinkers! I don't really care for blinkers. I hate the noise that they make. But I use them if there is another car behind because it's the courteous thing to do right? I hate it when someone doesn't use a blinker to show they are turning. If they aren't using a blinker then I have no idea why they are slowing down, which makes me ride their butt for going so slow. Which probably isn't the best thing, I know people hate people like me who ride their tails, but just go faster! And then we get to old people. I love my grandparents, but I seriously think old people are stupid. Literally. If you can't go the speed limit then get off the road. If you can't stay in one lane, get off the road. If you can't see over the steering wheel, get off the road. If you can't hear your blinker going off for the last ten minutes then GET OFF THE ROAD! This is a newspaper article from the USA Today to prove my point about old people:
Good morning, As you suit up and ride out today, keep in mind that driving is not a calling for all of your fellow motorists.A case in point is a 69-year-old German woman who, according to a Reuters report, was involved in three car accidents this week in less than an hour. She crashed into three cars while trying to exit a supermarket parking lot on a Baltic resort island. Then she accidentally stepped on the accelerator and sped across a nearby lawn, crashing into the house. As she was being taken to the hospital, the ambulance was hit by a truck, which wasn't really her fault.Miraculously, there were no serious injuries but it does give one pause. Even if you're not on a Baltic resort island, how do you avoid drivers like this unfortunate motorist?
Do you see my point?! Maybe I just suffer from road rage, but seriously... come on! Either get with the program or get out of my way!
