I know we complain pretty regularly about bad drivers, but I just got home from dropping Jeff off at PT and I swear, people drive me nuts. I don't have road rage, as in, I don't swear and throw things and whatnot, but sometimes I just lose all faith in humanity.
Today it was a douchewad who wanted to turn left, so he pulled into oncoming traffic and was blocking one and a half lanes in the direction I was traveling. There were only two lanes, but luckily I was able to get around him because there was a small median-type lane (not a turn lane, but one of those weird things with the yellow slashes blocking it off, because it was narrowing down from a turn lane). I'm surprised he hadn't pulled into that, as well.
I hate asshats like that - it happens all of the time on that road (especially, for some reason, at the McDonald's) because there are a lot of parking lots and entrances/exits for small businesses, so even though it's a main road, a lot of people are trying to get on and off where there aren't lights. Guess what, a-hole, if you make the choice to turn left onto a busy street rather than turning right and making a block, you aren't allowed to just pull into the street and block traffic. It especially drives me nuts when they block one lane, but not the other, and I have to make the choice whether to let them go (so that they don't continue to block traffic) or NOT let them go on principle.
Usually I don't let people in, like d-bags who try to cut up the shoulder or on-ramps on the highway, but when they are blocking other people I feel bad. I don't want to condone their craptastic behavior but I also don't want to be responsible for further road blockage.
I also think that there is a special place in hell reserved for people who cut through parking lots (especially at high speeds) and back into spaces (for no good reason).
So what else do we want to complain about today?
