We all hate...

...the aggressive driver who weaves in and out of traffic, right? Well, the problem with this thinking is that improper driving has forced this driver to do so. Keep right, except to pass is a pretty straight forward, understandable concept. Yet, regardless of the number of traffic lanes involved, some one inevitably moves left and stays there.

I understand with the onslaught of SUV's and larger vehicles on the road, that it can be frustrating when unable to see around these status symbols; but, if you are afraid to pass, stay in the right lane. Actually, I think this phenomenon is more attributable to self absorbed, completely oblivious assholes, which seem to be populating the planet at an alarming rate.

This concept is applicable to sidewalks, stairwells, and entry/exit doors, too. Do I think the majority of city dwellers cannot comprehend this concept because they do not drive? No, in my opinion they are self absorbed assholes playing with their personal electronic devices.

But we all know the saying about opinions.

  1. Now my pet peeve. I ride a motorcycle when the weather permits. Cell phones and texting!!!!

    I pisses me off that people think answering and talking on a cell phone or texting while driving is more important than my safety. That goes the same no matter if you are on a motorcycle, in a car or walking. Put down the f'ing phone and drive. YOU AREN'T THAT IMPORTANT!!!

    Truth is I have no problem if people talk in on the phone while they in the car. JUST PULL OFF THE ROAD AND STOP FIRST!!!
