I Don't Have Road Rage

Day 22: Rant about something. Ge up on  your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (A pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off)

There are so many ways that I can go with this post. Bad parenting, a co-worker who is so negative and rude every day that I can barely stand it and roll my eyes when I drive in the parking lot and see her car, people who are constantly ungrateful, neighbors that are assholes about ridiculous things, bad table manners...the list goes on and on! 

The thing that gets to me the most every day is BAD DRIVERS!

Dear heavens. How in the world more people aren't driving around with smashed up cars is beyond me. On any given day, most of us almost die because of some idiot on the road. I don't know what it is about people? How in the world do you not pay attention when you drive? If you aren't good at multi-tasking...the car is definitely not the place for you to try it out! I can't tell you how many people are in front of me going a constant speed on the interstate and then all of a sudden they drop down to 50mph when a few seconds ago they were going 75mph....then when you go to pass them, they are on their damn phone. How can you not have a conversation and drive at the same time? Texting is even a dumber thing to do for these people. Crossing over three lanes as you try to type something stupid that could have waited. Meanwhile, you have drive 3 people off the road and are about to miss your exit.

Speaking of exits. You drive the same route to and from work 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year. How in the hell did you not know your exit is coming up? Now you have to work your way over, and instead of just blending and merging you slam on your breaks and effect all 40 people behind you. 

You are also probably the idiot that doesn't know how to merge onto an interstate from an entrance ramp either. Nope. You are the one who drives 30mph down it, expecting that when you reach the bottom...the people going 70mph on the interstate are just going to magically let you in. There are 3 people behind you also trying to merge, and would like to do so at a faster rate! 

Why haven't we figured out how to merge two interstates together? It starts prepping you 2 miles in advance. You know which lane you need to be in. WHY in the world does it get jammed up every single damn day?

Oh it is raining? Oh no. The human brain can't function in the rain apparently. Why does everyone turn into an IDIOT in the rain? For goodness sakes! It isn't just rain, it is sprinkling, drizzling, snow, bright sun, overcast....apparently any type of weather sends the general population into a frenzy. 

There has been an accident. It has been cleared over to the side. Why aren't we moving?! Oh that's right, every one of you assholes has to rubber neck and see what happened. Someone rear ended another person, more than likely because it was either raining or they were texting. We have all seen an accident before, why do we have to look so hard and slow down so much that there is still traffic an hour after it happened? MOVE!!!!!

We are at the mall, you have the right of way as you pull in. There is a huge sign that says KEEP MOVING. You stop. WHY DID YOU STOP?!?!?! You are getting the horn. You are an idiot and you have ruined my whole shopping experience before I have even entered the mall.

Trussville, this one is for you. Why do 7 cars feel the need to go and turn after the light turns red? OK, I get one of you going, maybe you were hanging out in the way of the lanes that are about to move. Fine, maybe 2 of you go. 7? Now you have wasted all my green arrow and I have to sit at another light. All of you assholes are getting a dirty look from me as you drive past. Rude! 

You know what else is rude? Blocking an intersection when you know the light is about to turn red, and you continue to sit in it the entire time, knowing all to well you have just screwed everyone. Not letting someone over when they are using proper turn signals and trying to get into your lane. Cutting people off. The list goes on! 

Road rage? I don't know what you are talking about. Nope, not me. 


  1. I hate when people block an intersection! It happens literally everyday in my town when school lets out- to get off my road there is a busy intersection that has poorly timed lights ( they stay red way too long) so people clog up the intersection so they don't have to wait- making it impossible for me to leave my street to continue on my way.

  2. I agree with all of these rants! I find myself talking to everyone while driving and telling them what they are doing wrong. Definitely not a good way to start or end your days!
