What really grinds your gears?

this is a discussion within the Everything Else Community Forum; People who are squarely in the middle of executing a lane change before they decide to look or 'maybe' use their blinker. I nearly died twice today on the way to work....

I think the world's worst driver is the one who gets in the left lane and rides the same speed side-by-side with the guy in the right lane. It is annoying, to say the least, on any highway...but on the interstate it should be illegal and citation worthy.

I wondered for a long time what could be going on inside a guys brain who drives like that. I don't have a problem with the guy in the right lane because he is in the right lane. I applaud those few right-laners who notice what the dip**** in the left lane is doing and will either slow down, speed-up...or even pull into a rest area...just to give the rest of us a break.

Anyway, as I said, I wondered what they could be thinking...until my wife came home one day and told me of her experience with one of the left-lane idiots. She was driving to work with this girl one day and noticed that she was in the left lane and people were passing her on the right, (which, technically is illegal) or behind her flashing lights, etc. She asked the girl why she didn't move over and the girl said that she was going the speed limit and had a right to be in that lane. She went on to say that if they didn't like it they could go around her on the right. It is times like this that people need an officer of the law explain to her how her thought process is misguided.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

That's the problem right there. I can't tell you how many times I've complained about this very thing. "It's my right"...oh how I'd like to follow those people home and kick their ass. You have no idea. What part of "Slower Traffic Keep To The Right" do these mother ers NOT understand?

I used to have this argument with my wife, who is not one of these offenders, but she used to rail on me for complaining about it. People who do that in the left lane are dangerous and I have no idea why the police don't step up the effort to ticket them.

I, for one, think that EVERYBODY, with NO EXCEPTIONS, should be made to either ride a motorcycle or ride on a motorcycle with someone for a week before they can get their license. It should be required by law. This would give them a new-found perspective on how dangerous being stupid and inconsiderate on the highway can really be. On a bike they won't have the false sense of security they get from being inside their car or SUV.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!
