Where are you going?!?!?!?!

March 12, 2008 at 8:27 pm (crazy drivers, misc)

I have a huge gripe. Why do people insist on NOT using their turn signals and forgetting how to “yield” to traffic? I want to run these people off the road or smash into them and plead ignorance.

I really feel like the minority, a majority of the time.


That is all, carry on……..

**EDITED**

    I pet peeve is people not thanking you when you slow down and let them in front of you. Just a simple hand wave is all that is need. You aren’t entitled to do what ever you want to do and expect people to yield to your every need. I have toyed with the idea of carrying a paint gun around just for those assholes.

    They look at me and say hey, she’s a brilliant looking woman. She surely can read my mind and knows I want to turn, no need to signal to her!
    ‘least, that’s what I tell myself to avoid prfanity. . . .

    I feel like giving people like that a hand signal. Involving the middle finger. 🙂

    That’s just the Philly way! Makes driving more spontaneous and fun, huh???

  5. cheer34 said,

    Is it an old wives tale that all people from New Jersy drive like that?

  6. Superwoman said,

    Around here if you put on your turn signal people think that is a sign to zoom into your blind spot and block you, it makes me a little angry. . .

    Turn signals are HUGE with me! It’s just such a simple thing, and common courtesy, damnit!

    Turn signals and slowing down just show weakness.

    Ha!
    I spend most of my drive time flipping people off and cursing.

    I just try to remember that it helps me burn extra calories.

    Coffeypot: Jeff Foxworthy said that, if you let someone cut in front of you and they don’t give you a wave, it is perfectly all right to get up underneath them, get ’em loose and put them into the wall (for those that speak NASCAR).

    Teri, an apartment project I lived in had very limited parking – one space per unit. If someone parked in your space, you would have to park blocks away and hope that your car didn’t get vandalized. The project managers had some signs made up that were the size of the average windshield with an industrial adhesive on the printed side (you would have to soak and scrape these signs off with a razor blade) that said “THIS IS NOT YOUR ASSIGNED PARKING PLACE.”. They would put these on the windshield of offending cars. Ah, the good old days.

    That could be very helpful.

    Just Dave, Jeff is a wise man. He also said, I believe, that when a cop stops you for speeding, tell him you weren’t speeding, you were qualifying. Or you weren’t tailgating, you were drafting.

    AMEN! I signal if I even THINK about moving :):) I hate when people just don’t and expect you to predict their damn intentions.

    And I agree with Coffeepot – people who don’t acknowledge when you kindly make their life easier by allowing them to slot into heavy traffic or something similar, need to have their fannies kicked by me.

    Oh! And tail-gaters. I’d like to line them up and shoot them. Along with the dude I saw in Florida last year who’d painted his whole truck in a confederate flag.
