Top Ten - Driving Annoyances

Driving
- People who leave their turn signals on.
- People who don’t use their turn signals.
- Drivers who are inattentive because they’re yakkin’ on their cell phone
- Getting behind city buses
- Potholes
- Drivers who do 50 mph in a 65 mph zone (in the left passing lane)
- Parking space swipers
- Flat tires
- People who weave in and out of traffic thinking they’ll get there faster. (Love it when they hit a red light)
- And my all time favorite … red light runners.

Personally speaking, I want a hood mounted missel for my car. Give me some of your driving annoyances.

    LOL, Liz! All of the above. Very few folks here use their turn signals. Really torks me off too. If I’m behind ya, I wanna know what you’re going to do in the few minutes or so. DUH. Especially if I’m driving the speed limit and need to stop. Let’s see, the left-hand pokes that’s a good one. How about the drivers who really poke and you go to pass, and all of a sudden they’re Nascar? Now that really honks me off. It’s like an idiot thing. They see it’s a gal, and oh man step on the gas, gun that engine baby! Varrrooom!
    What I love? Little ol’ ladies who grip the wheel and aren’t afraid to drive.

  2. Edie Says:

    Liz, you and LaDonna said it all. My hubby and I were walking Sky the other day, and some idiot holding a cell phone to her ear was speeding in the subdivision. She made a one-handed turn and went wide, way over to the side where we were walking.

    One other thing that pissed me off was a few years ago. It was rush hour traffic on the expressway and in the minivan next to me, the kids were jumping around in the back–no seatbelts. What was the mother thinking?

  3. Margie Says:

    I agree with all of the above but I would add to the list. I hate when people will step on the gas and then step on the brake and then back to the gas, they just keep on trading off between the gas and the brake. I think it is called riding the brakes.

    I also agree Edie I hate when the kids are not buskeled in properly. Last week I saw a 6 week old baby at a rummage sale and when they left the mother got in the front seat and was holding the baby on her lap. I just wanted to shake this woman seanless.

  4. Margie Says:

    shake her senseless that is. *So I don’t know how to spell*

  5. LaDonna Says:

    God, Margie, that story gave me a shiver. Years ago, when carseats were made crappola, and they didn’t have any hard-core laws on the books, I saw that all the time. Mine were always in carseats, though. Even if they were made cheaply in the 70’s, those babies were buckled up.

  6. Liz Says:

    Well, this hit a couple of nerves. I agree with all of your comments. The kids without a carseat makes me nuts. Or why don’t parents control their kids and buckle them in. I had my nephew convinced for years that the car didn’t work unless he was buckled in. I drove a stick shift and just left it in neutral and revved the engine to let him know it didn’t work. The kid bought it for years. They’re so gullible when they’re young. :lol:

  7. Liz Says:

    Or riddle me this. Why is there a law that says you have to be buckled up, yet the school buses don’t have seatbelts? Haven’t figured that one out yet.

  8. Liz Says:

    Very scary, Edie. I try to make it a point of pulling over when my cellphone rings. I’d hate the thought of causing an accident because I was too inattentive.

  9. LaDonna Says:

    Oh, the school bus thing is at the top of my list!! Amazing is all I can say. Anyone tired of those politicians campaigning yet? LOL. Now that’s a doozy. I heard the word Health-Care concerns the other day. Yeah, right, they haven’t talked about it for the last eight years. Now, all of a sudden it’s important cause it’s campaign time? Okay, Mr. man on the hill guys who wears bad toupees, and take viagra! LOL. Phew, I feel better. Now, what were we talking about? hehe.

  10. Karin Says:

    Liz, I want a big rubber bumper around my car.

  11. Liz Says:

    A rubber bumper all around? :lol: That would go over well with the car manufacturers.

  12. Michelle Says:

    All of the above, especially the the kids without car seats, but also people who think they are WAY more important than everyone else. You know the ones I mean, when everyone is backed up on the off-ramp, or the on-ramp, waiting their turn and someone comes along in the outside lane and just pushes in ahead over eveyone else. I. cannot. say. how. much. that. annoys. me.

  13. Liz Says:

    Grrr. That’s a good one, Michelle. Pushy people make me nuts.

    See? We all need a hood mounted missle launch.
