Must you really?

Alright, I have just about HAD IT (I use that because that is the line my mom used in a really angry tone to let us know she was REALLY mad). Driving makes me grumpy most of the time, and especially today for some reason. I was extremely fussy today and I can't really put my finger on it...I about lost it driving home in traffic from Salt Lake. Here are some reasons:

1. If you are going slower than everyone else and you are in the fast lane, get out of there! Freak! Do we not understand that. People that go 65 on the dot or under in the fast lane should be punched in the loins and kinked in the windpipe. Just move over....fast, because my cruise control is on as are the 5 other people's set strategically at 74 so please just get over so I don't have to tap my brake.

2. USE your dang blinker. That is what it is there for. Really, I will let you in...I always do. But when you don't use your blinker and cut me off I get real fussy and ticked off. So do the other people behind me at me when I have to slam on my brakes making them slam on theirs. It's not that hard, just click it on.

3. You know how much I love old people...adore them. However, most should not be driving. When someone is going 35 on the freeway, that is LITERALLY scary. You look away for one second and you have almost hit into them because they are going SO slow and you come up on them too fast. Enough to scare the pants off you. Sheesh.

4. People who speed up to pass you and then slow down as soon as they get in front of you. Really?? Really. There are four lanes open next to you....and you wanted to just show me that you can go faster. Awesome. You are really cool.

5. Last but not least....when I go 85 in a 65 don't tail gate me when I can't get over. I am going 20 over....seriously, I am not one of the sixty fivers in the fast lane, I can't get over and we are going 20 over...what more do you want?

Whew. Thank you for letting me rant.
I physically feel better.
More later.

You do realize you are moving to SoCal were there is traffic regardless of whether or not you are on the freeway???

Even if you are going 85 in a 65 in the fast lane, you still need to get over when a car is behind you. This is just as frustrating as someone going 65 in the fast lane. For some reason, I do not like having a car in front of me. I like to drive right around 80 but if there is a car in front of me, I will speed up to 90 or even 100 and then get mad cause they are sitting in the fast lane in front of me. Ugh, I feel your frustrations.
