Andy's Rant Pages
(The Streets And Highways)
Drivers who don't use their turn signals:
To me, it is just rude not to use a blinker to signal lane changes and/or turns. Here I am looking in the rear view mirror to see some jack@$$ weaving around like he/she is in the Indy 500. The person just doesn't seem satisfied with anyone else's driving. Another thing that pi$$e$ me off are the idiots I see in the rear view mirror that like to make that last second lane change without using the blinker when I am about to make a turn. Sometimes they even blow their horn. Here I am signaling my intention to make a turn and giving the rear traffic a good amount of warning time. What do they want of me? Am I not allowed to ever make a turn? Do I have to go straight for the rest of my life? (No, I'm 100% HETEROsexual) What if the road ends? I don't see any "NO TURN" signs posted. They should be blowing their horn on the idiots attempting to make an illegal turn that causes traffic to back up.
Drivers who leave their turn signals blinking:
What I would do in this case is to prepare a sign on a stick (like the kind you see on the curbs on Election Day) that says "YOUR TURN SIGNAL IS ON!" I keep the sign in the car for when that time comes. Before I pull the sign out, I first pull up in front of the absent minded driver and imitate him/her by turning on my blinkers and slowing down. If he/she tries to pass me, I speed up. If after 10 minutes he/she still hasn't figured out what the hell is the driver in front (me) is trying to say, then I pull out the sign. I speed off after the binker is finally turned off!
Drivers who make wide turns but are not driving an 18 wheeler:
You know what I mean! They are so friggin' lazy to turn the wheel all the way that they need the whole road to make a turn as if they are driving an 18 wheeler truck.
(There's more to come so don't forget to stop by often!)
