Road Travels et al.

So I am driving to Viriginia in the morning, I'm excited. As I sit here and ponder about my little journey there are some things that will probably not be fun about this road trip. So I am going to share some of the things that I love to hate about driving.

1. First and foremost, some fool driving slow in the fast lane, MOVE OVER, thats what the inside lane is for, SLOWWW drivers. Don't think that just because you're driving 55 mph and thats the speed limit that I'm going to do the same thing. If I want to drive 80 mph thats my business, if I get ticketed I'm paying for it, not you, so outta my way sista!!

2. Getting the finger! Ok gotta love this one. This happened me the other day. I'm sitting at a red light and theres a guy in front of me. The light turns green and hes still sitting there, now I usually give the person in front of me at least 10 seconds to move, if after that you haven't I'm going to beep you, so that's what I did, and sure enough his window rolled down, the arm came out and the finger went up. OMG! what is your problem ? Oh I know, you feel like a fool because you were sitting at a green light, and now you're pissed because I called you on it. Grow up and move along and KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN.

3. Coming up to a toll. (I don't have EZ Pass, so I go thru the cash lane). Lining up for ages and just as you're about 5-6 cars away from paying, some slickster cuts in front of you just because you blinked, AGGGGHHH!

I could go on forever, and I'm sure when I return from my trip, I'll have lots more.

So what are your favorite things to hate while driving?

People with vanity plates that i can't figure out. I swear if I'm ever killed in a car accident it will be due to me trying to sound out every possible thing the plate in front of me could say. If you have a vanity plate, make UNDERSTANDABLE. I know this is a stupid thing, but I'm practically OCD, and if I can't figure it out, it drives me insane.. Yes I HAVE pulled up next to a person to ask what it says!

I hate vanity plates too. I have a neighbor whose 80 something sister is always parking in front of my house with plates on her Caddy that say "C Jean P"!!!

Hey ... All 4 have NIntendo DS's where in many games they can "go into each other's world" so now, not only are "they touching me" in person I also get to hear "s/he's in my way and won't let me down that path... kill that dragon... find the key...."

AND did you see that the new dodge caravan the seats flip so they can face each other (and have a table) and fight while looking at each other?!?  Nice!

Be yourself...... Everyone else is taken!

*18 Wheelers that honk at me.... I'm a very jumpy person... and I have no idea why they have to always look into my car as I pass them... but please don't honk... it scares me and I nearly wreck my car EVERY TIME... I don't mind driving 2 inches from a concrete wall at 85 mph... just... don't... honk.

* People that have to look in my car in general... a guy passes... looks in... keeps staring... *PAY ATTENTION TO THE ROAD*... they pass me up a little... then start to turn their entire head AROUND to look at me more.... dude... you're in front of me now... please don't wreck... because then I'm going to wreck... look forward... pay attention to the road... no I will not sleep with you... no I will not date you... so STOP STARING!

*People with little cars that pull soooo far into a parking spot (this goes for bikes too) that I *THINK* the spot is vacant until it's too late..... the person right behind me gets the next closest spot... I park in Egypt.

*People with 'Baby on Board' stickers... first of all, THEY ARE THE ONES driving like crazy people (9 times out of 10) and that's not safe if you have a baby in the car... second... that sticker does not mean that you have the right of way, nor does it mean that I should pay attention to the road FOR YOU...  it's not an excuse to drive like an a**hole... it's just a sticker that informs the rest of the world that you're going to be one anyway.

*People that park at a 45 degree angle right next to my car.... I'm already parked in Egypt, there are 20 empty spaces that are closer... why my car? Why take up 2 spaces? Why make it so difficult for me to get out of my own parking spot that I parked in correctly?

*People that leave their turn signals on without ever turning or changing lanes....

*People who don't use turn signals at all

*People who drive with 2 feet (automatic trannys) and ride their brakes

*People who's brake lights are out

*High beams... especially from the car 20 ft behind me...

*People who never learned what a yield sign means...

*People who don't stop completely

*People that can't stay in their lane to save their lives

Oh my god I can go on for days and now I'm in a cranky mood thinking about all the annoying drivers...
