Rules of the Road

I'm still finding it quite difficult to find any courtesy on the streets and highways all around. No matter where I go, someone is riding my tail High-beams A'blazin, seemingly unaware of their apparent ass-holery. There were 5 in a row this morning, before dawn... blinding the living daylights out of me. It's no wonder more and more people are getting dragged out of their cars and beat down, I have half a mind to do it myself. To the last guy, I pulled over to the side of the road and let him pass so I could get behind him and give him a dose of his own medicine... doubt he even cared. Rule is: (whether this is my rule, or law in some states) When you meet an oncoming car, LOW BEAMS! When you're riding behind someone, or riding their ass... LOW BEAMS!!!!!

Oh and if it's not that, it's some brainless twat trying to break the speed barrier and turn the already 'gridlocked' interstate into an obstacle course. Can't they see the person over on the side of the road sitting in their car skull-down? Enough people are "rubbernecking" past the accident that it should be common knowledge!

Therefore, ATTENTION all drivers! (Especially you, the most brain-dead: Mid-South and Memphis area) Where is the love people?? Where is the common sense, and last but not least simple concern and respect for yourself and your fellow drivers?? I'm not one to stand in the way of your progress by any means, if you have some sort of death-wish, and you want to go crash head first into a wall, or go flip your own vehicle then have at it! Just do us all a favor and make it a solo act.

---end of rant---

Ok, so I have a great deal to get done today... you won't get the continuance of the Fireman tale (tail?) lol... until Tomorrow--that's right, FRIDAY... TGIF is almost here.

Cheers Y'all!

My commute is about 1/4 of what it once was and I drive on far less crowded roads now. Yet there are still occasional rude drivers.

That is so funny bc I was just talking to chalice the other night about this very same thing. I told her about this time that I experienced some what could have been even more serious road rage because some ass-knocker was giving me his high & lows as well as his fogs all at the same time.....

Anyway, I'm still trying to forget what I did to his door....

Later...

I laughed out loud when you said ass-holery!

Thanks for introducing a new word to my vocabulary.

And of course they are "unaware of their apparent ass-holery". It's like a fish searching for water. If you live your entire life in it, you have no clue it's even there! :)

In a way, I'm glad to know that these drivers don't reside just in NY!

I could write a book about all the asshole things do when they're driving around here. Luckily I work at night so I don't have to deal with the 9 to 5 crowd.

I hardly drive anymore since the Old Dubblebuggy went to car heaven. But I know this all to well. Add to your high beams, a pair of college drivers who are used to mud and drag racing in corn fields. Yeah, not pretty on the road here at all.

I dunno...

I kinda like my high beams.

Think I'll continue using them. ;)

Let's agree to pull over and kick Steve's butt.
