crazy drivers

Doesn't everyone know someone who is a temperamental, crazy, or just piss-poor driver?

It only takes one episode of someone pressing the accelerator to the floor in town and screaming profanities out the window before I become leery of ever being their passenger again.

I start to offer up excuses over the phone as to why I can't go somewhere:

  • work called me in unexpectedly.
  • I'm sick.
  • my mother is sick.
  • I'm working in Atlanta…for the next three weeks.
  • I'm camped out on Wall Street.
  • I have explosive diarrhea today.

😆 :jester: :jester: 😆

    Oh, I think we've all fought with a few of those, too. 🙂

  2. I thought you meant hardware drivers… :lol:In my twenties and early thirties I was notoriously known for jumping out at the first opportunity of the vehicle I was a passenger in of anyone that was driving in a manner I felt unsafe, and would just keep walking. No amount of anything would get me to yield in my refusal to get back in. Most of the people I did this to were not friend worthy to begin with, and I ended up in their vehicle due to some unusual circumstance to begin with. I don't regret a single incident.

    I totally agree. When driving alone I might cuss loudly inside the car itself, and flipping the bird low under the dash makes me feel better, but when I have passengers, I'm like a professional bus driver: "their lives are in my hands."There has been an incident or two when I've let a roaring F-U out of the window, but never when anyone else is in the car. 😀 Sometimes I'll pleasantly say to a passenger, "that one drives like he has a glass of water on the dash."Also, you might as well prepare to pass *any* subcompact pick-up truck. They're always going about 10 to 20 under the limit, especially if they are an obsolete brand, like Datsun.

  4. I don't know about over there but here in England the worst drivers are almost always the ones who passed their driving test on the first attempt. Yasmin, my step daughter, passed on her first test. Gloria, my wife, won't get in a car with her any more!

  5. I was behind a seriously slow one yesterday. It was a beat-up compact that rode low to the ground from spring fatigue, curls of smoke were coming from the tailpipe, and the lights dim from a tired alternator.In the dirty back widow there were 2 large stickers:–BACHMANN 2012–OBAMA = SOCIALISMI had to get a look at the driver as I went by. He confirmed all my stereotypes:–looked crazy.–was hunched up to the wheel with his teeth (if he had any) almost touching it.–had a giant view-blocking floppy hat on.I think he has totally benefited from all the policies of the corporate right.

    Wow. I've made some similar correlations in my years of driving, but never one so pure, so distilled as that. Well done, Dave.

    lol. Now if I could just get my mother to stop watching Fox "News". It gets her upset. I told her it doesn't have to be this way. I threaten to take the TV out of there, but that would be cruel to an elderly woman who can't get out much.

  8. You haven't seen my cousin driving, be it a car or bike.

    😆 I'm going to meet them all one day (your family). I hope to. I need to find a bucket of cash so I can fly to India.Anyway, I think to solve some of this, we're going to have to lobby for changes in how a driver's license is acquired. The exam should include over a hundred questions including some logic problems to solve and some essay writing.The driving skills road test should involve a section where you get your car airborne using ramps and have to fly over a pond of hungry snapping alligators.This would help to weed out those weak drivers. :devil:

  11. 2500 $ will be enough. :)And this cracked site is fun. I really like those facts. lol
