Skip the FACE, we are going full on RANT

My friends that know me can tell you, for all of my laughing at life, I wear my emotions for all to see, I would love to be a better mirror to others as opposed to my soul. Not happening at this point. So yesterday the spouse and I had to make the horrible decision to put one of our pets to sleep. It was the right thing to do, but it sucks beyond words. There will always be a little voice asking if it was the right thing to do? So needless to say my state of mind this morning? A wee on the Agitated side, if we had to classify it.

I am from the North East originally, and I have the classical case of Road Rage most days. This morning? Oh I could have run someone over and never looked back.

Incident A) The first Asshat I encountered this AM was stopped at a stop sign. Following my morning route, I need to turn left onto the road he was sitting on. FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON, BALD FAT BASTARD thinks because the truck in FRONT of him had enough time to get out onto the highway before I got to the road that I SHOULD SIMPLY STOP AND LET HIM GO. And since I DID NOT, because SILLY ME I HAD THE RIGHT OF WAY, HE GAVE ME THE ONE FINGER SALUTE. It took all I had in me to keep going and not get out of the car and jump on the hood of his truck and just let loose all of my angst. But they have guns here are aren't afraid to use them. SO.....

Incident B thru Z) various and sundry idiots behind the wheel of a moving murder weapon. I am not a perfect driver by ANY stretch of the imagination, but I would think for this one task we can all follow a simple rule of life here. . . . BE PRESENT. Not just looking forward and using turn signals and mirrors, which I would love to suggest some time, but really. PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON AROUND YOU PEOPLE!!!!!

Do not get on a highway and pull ALL THE WAY TO THE LEFT/THIRD LANE AND NOT TRY TO GET UP TO AT LEAST THE SPEED LIMIT SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU OWN THAT PORTION OF THE HIGHWAY........ In the same vein, if you ARE in the left lane and someone comes up behind you that would like to go faster, and there is NO REASON YOU CAN'T MOVE OVER TO LET THEM PASS.... MOVE THE HELL OVER! Don't be a douche. Just because you can. Just. DON'T.

Turn signals???? The are rarely used and when they are, they are used wrong. PULL OUT THE CAR MANUAL OR BETTER YET THE DRIVING MANUAL YOU HAD TO LEARN TO GET YOUR FREAKING LICENCE AND FIGURE OUT WHAT THE HELL THEY ARE THERE FOR AND HOW TO USE THEM. FREE FREAKING LESSON EITHER WAY.

Sorry. Long ride in with stupid inept people who Cut me Off, Flipped me Off, or were completely oblivious to the damage and mayhem left in their wake. .. .

  1. My "favorite" here to get ragey about is one way streets. Okay, I can understand if they don't habla inglais, but FFS, aren't ARROWS universal? I wish I had a PENNY for each time I saw someone going down a one way--double that for each person I've informed they are going the wrong way, and they INSIST on continuing on their chosen path.
