Fave Five Friday – Traffic Pet Peeves

September 26, 2008

Thought I’d give y’all a break from the wedding fave fives and mix things up a bit this week son. Let’s do pet peeves, but not just any pet peeve, traffic related pet peeves. Oh yeah! I can see all of your minds spinning. Relax tampax! We’re not in traffic right now. No need get all habuts. Just think about um, no need re-live um! 🙂 Anyway, check um out and post yours below k?

  1. Tailers – I go at a reasonably brisk pace already (ok, I speed!) so for somebody to tail me means they’re really flyin’! What’s worse is when both lanes to the side of me are wide open and they continue to follow me. I slow down just to irritate them more. Too bad so sad.
  2. Turtles (in the fast lane!) – Even more irraz if they are oblivious to their surroundings (they don’t realize how much traffic they are holding up behind them). Worse when the only lanes open are clogged up by slow drivers going the exact same speed.
  3. Parking lot buffoons! – This is when people go to their car, get in, turn their engine on, and then never come out! Meanwhile you’re waiting for them to come out for ages. What do you do? Honk? Rev your engine? Go back and forth hoping they’d see you. Worse when they have their reverse lights on this whole time!
  4. Slow Cutter Offers  – It’s one thing to cut you off, but it’s another to cut you off and then go slow. And these aren’t the punk types who do it on purpose. These are, again, oblivious peeps, who don’t know how to change lanes in the flow of traffic.
  5. Chatty Fatties – Idiots who talk on their cell phone and let it effect their driving (slowness, swerving, etc.). Let’s be honest, we all talk on the phones while driving, but at least we don’t forget how to drive. I personally use an earpiece so both of my hands are free to use the wheel (plus I won’t burn my brain with radiation 😛 ).
  6. Smokestacks/Litter Bugs Me – Had to add this one in cause it’s annoying too. Smokers who hang their arms out the window and waft their stinky fumes into my car. Also litterers (is that a word?). I can’t stand seeing someone toss junk out their window with disregard to everyone but themselves.

Sorry if you are one of these cause I just called you a name. Haha! Give it back to me by posting your comments below man. Shoots!
