Annoying Drivers : LUSENET : I'd Rather Eat Glass : One Thread

Come on, let it all out. Tell me what annoys you when you're driving. Is it people babbling on their cellphones? Women putting on makeup while driving? Stupid pedestrians? Tell me about it.

The absolute worst is when a passenger is telling me how to drive. I've even pulled over to let them get in the driver's seat.

And everyone thinks I'm nice. :-)

The other thing is people who tailgate me on deserted highways (the only highways around), then pass me and slow down. Grrrr.

Oh, yeah, I have to agree with Andrea... that tailgating, passing and slowing down thing is cause enough for murder. I burn when that happens to me.
Another peeve is slow moving vehicles. Grandpa jus' go' hes cataracts taken ou', so he can drive the cawr agin. Excuse me, I believe I have a shotgun under my seat with your name on bullet number one.
And my number one frustration is the railroad crossing close to my house. The trains decide they can park across it, even though that is illegal and all that. So, they park and I have to go about a mile out of my way to get home. Or, I will sit and wait for a train to pass and it goes slower and slower and finally stops, blocking the crossing. Right about then, I could take said shot gun and make some headlines, lemme tell ya.

Mom's in mini-vans. They bug me. They target me when they see me running across the street, usually at a stop light, in my favor. They see the running clothes and make a bee-line for my bee-hind. They're vindictive! :-) I forgive them. We all have our moments.

The most annoying? Passengers who can drive better than the driver. Hubby made the sad mistake of trying to tell me how to drive~once~I simply smiled my sweet little smile, pulled over, stopped the car. "you have two choices,hubby...Shut the F*** up or walk"....he shut up probably because we were 12 miles from home and he was in no mood to walk.

I won't even mention the idiots on cell phones who veer into my lane.

O.k., I agree with moms in mini-vans, but what's even worse are moms that drive HUGE SUVs!!! They have no sense of what's going on around them!!! I've almost been killed a few times by them. When I think of those large contraptions, I think of mountains, not cities. Then I go up to the mountains and everyone is driving small economy cars! Someone explain that one to me!

Living in a smaller city, I know I have no real reason to complain, but I am convinced that every so often, someone passes out extra doses of stupid pills, and then encourages all of the recipients to drive. I simply -love- the way people refuse to merge. At all. Going 20 when you are entering traffic that is going 65 is slightly scary. That and the people who actually come to a full stop on said onramps. Lovely. I wanted no tread on my tires and a mouthful of steering wheel.

I hate, really really hate, people who don't use their blinkers, swerve into your lane, almost hit you and then filp you off for not knowing that they wanted to get in. I'm SOOO sorry but I've missed the last few psychic courses at school, my mind reading is getting worse. Of course, that is what your bilnkers are for you f***ing morons.

i was on a major highway today and had to slam on my brakes while one moron was going 40 mph (65limit) for no reason, with no hazards on etc, and coming up behind me was an OVERSIZED LOAD jerk going about 90. i almost had an anxiety attack as i swerved around slow jerk so as not to get crushed by big huge oversized jerk. geez

Egotistic, me firsters with the attention span of a retarded nit. The irritating offenses are legion, but you all know what I mean. Among them are those who doze at a green until just before it turns red and then jump start across the street.
