I'm not the best driver in the world, but good god I'm leaps and bounds ahead of others it seems. Everybody is is such a hurry to get to the scene of their accident apparently. Mind you these drivers aren't a day to day, but every once in a while I run into the perfect stream of road warriors.
- Guy in a merging lane heavily accelerating just to simply match me even though he's in the lane that must yield by law and there was ample space to merge behind me had he not chosen to charge forward and fail to overtake strategy. He neither acknowledged me nor slowed down. Since I don't want to be part of an accident I slow enough to let him in. His driving on the interstate itself involved many lane changes without signals and outpacing the cars already going over the posted speed limit.
- When turning left off the road and signaling it in advance to get into my driveway a person passes me on the left rather than slow down or heaven forbid stop so that they can reach the red light at the end of the street faster.
-Truck with trailer decided that the two way stop he was at was now magically a four way. The only other reason for him to try was he mistakenly thought the gap in traffic that the small car in front of him had taken would also accommodate his larger and slower vehicle after he'd pulled forward and stopped.
- Today, got passed on a residential going the speed limit by someone that didn't want to go so 'slow' (i.e. the speed limit) apparently. Flipped them off cause seriously I've been going maybe 20 ft since turning onto the road from the same traffic light that just turned green as them and I see no reason to drag strip down a residential when I have a turn coming up. Passenger took offense and flipped me the bird back. I gave them a double finger salute to acknowledge the mutual dislike I feel now for both of them. I am perplexed as the driver slows down to a crawl after passing through an four way intersection, but don't care as that intersection is my turn for my street. Note that as I take my turn driver starts driving regular speed again. I really wonder what that driver was intending to do. Drive extra slow to make me feel their pain? Try and get me to stop? Did it suddenly occur to them that maybe they were speeding and I wasn't some grouchy old man yelling at the whipper snappers?
