round abouts are easy! Just drive in the middle and don't worry about people merging! Yeah...we have them also. The inside lane vs the outside lane seems to be mind boggling

It's those who text while driving that irritate me and people who think they need to swing their car in one direction before turning the other direction as if they were driving a semi.

What I want to know is:

What's so important that you have to talk about on the phone while you're driving?

If you're only going 20mph, why do you have to drive in the fast lane?

Great, a road rage thread.

Ok, my pet peeve is horns. Unless someone really deserves it, like I did last week, horns just shouldn't be used. Like when you are in a traffic jam. I90 is a parking lot. It is backed up to kingdom come and no one is going anywhere anytime soon. Why blow your horn??? Does that make people just feel good about themselves to vent their irritation?

Once I was on a bike ride with my sister and a brother. My little sister was eight, my brother was 12 and I was about 19, and my older sister was 21. She was leading. We were single file, and I was the farthest back so that I would get hit first if anyone was going to get hit. We were riding with traffic, the way you are supposed to. And some idiot, comes right up to my back wheel and lays on the horn. Huh? Yeah it made me jump out of my skin, but I had enough experience with human orifices to stay under control. It also made the kids jump out of their skins, and they could have so easily veered into traffic or fallen. So many tires to slash, so little time...

But, let's be honest here, If you are only going to go 20 mph under the speed limit, or more honest yet, if you are not going to go 20 mph OVER the speed limit...

This is from today. Person pulls inthe wrong way into the exit drive of a narrow lot then beeps at me cause me the wrong person is using the exit,wait for it " as an exit". Tempted as I was to roll over the sedan w/ my larger old battered crew cab I backed up. Only to find she is making a gesture at me that wasn't peace. Really?

This happened this weekend:

Hubby has broken leg. I drove up to the front of a grocery store - not at the front door, but at the front of the store. I pull in as far as I can to get out of the way. I put on my hazards. I jump out and jog into the store, grab one of those motorized carts. BTW - it forces you to ride it or it won't work.

Hubby opens his door - takes his crutches and jumps out of truck. He is standing with his door open, on crutches. A car pulls up behind my truck and starts blowing their horn. Hubby is standing there...on crutches..with a big black boot on that goes all the way to his knee.

I exit the store on the motorized cart and hear the car honking. There is tons of room for the car to go around us. I'm not even in the traffic flow lane. Hubby is now facing the car that is behind my truck honking.

Honestly, I'm a little shocked. The car continues to honk. As I get closer I notice a man behind the wheel and a woman in the passenger side. I park the cart next to my truck so hubby can get on it. I walk to the back of my truck and say " I'm sorry, I can't hear you!" and cup my hand around my ear. The woman is now looking down so she doesn't have to see me. The man continues to honk and is mouthing something. "I can't hear you!" "What?" "I can't hear you!" "What?" He finally went around me.

I guess I had parking lot rage.

I just passed a state trooper driving a charger on my way home. He didn't have his lights on and the fog looks like this today:

You'd think the newer vehicles would have auto running lights.

Oh my gosh, this is my only complaint about the Nissan Juke. We went from a Silverado that had daytime running lights to the Juke that just has a sensor for dim light. But there are times when I would have the lights on (intermittent wipers and so on) but the Juke doesn't think it is dark enough.
