How to f’ing drive.

Kris Linquist wrote a little rant/article on his site entitled: How to f’ing drive.

I was nodding in agreement the entire time I read it and wondering how much work it would take to replace those ugly little ‘Airbag Safety’ stickers they put on sun visors these days with this article instead. Because GOOD LORD YOU PEOPLE NEED SOME INSTRUCTION.

He pretty much hit on all my major peeves except one and that is people who don’t use turn signals. They are there to USE people, not to make your corners clear or add to the beautiful esthetics of your car. So…

If you want in my lane, all you gotta do is TELL me. If you use the blinker, 99.5% of the time I’ll let you in. Hell, on days were the traffic is busy, I’ll let TWO people merge in front of me just because I’m a nice person like that.

You don’t need to honk, you don’t need to glare at me, you don’t need to try and squeeze your H2 into the 1.15 car lengths in front of me in heavy traffic that’s moving 2 MPH. I’ll LET YOU IN, ASSHAT. Just let me know you want over.

For almost two years now, I’ve tried to convince Ben to let me install a blow horn on the front of my car. He’s veto’d the idea, FORCEFULLY, because he said that I’ll “abuse it”. I have no idea what he’s talking about.

Anyway, go check out the rant. Even for those of you that don’t live in CA, these are common sense rules of the road that anybody should follow.

  1. Um, AMEN. I’m so with you on the signalling thing. I’m not a mind reader, people! I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING! I also hate the wrong-turn-light-on-for-19-miles thing, where you’re so distracted trying to figure out if they actually plan on switching lanes that you can’t concentrate on the road.

  2. My greatest stress comes from driving to work, driving at lunch, driving home. People not signalling drives me crazy as well. KYNAN DOES THAT. And I also hate when people have enough room on the right to get out of the road as they slow down to 5mph to make their turn.. I think bad thoughts when tehy do that AND have no signal…

  3. And thats one of the reasons why I don’t want to drive!

    Drivers here are brutal. As you mentioned, they don’t use their signal lights! That pisses me off so much ;/ Especially when i’m waiting to walk accross the highway, thinking that the car is going STRAIGHT. But nooo.. Just before they get near me, they pull off into another road.. If they had of used their signal lights, I would have known and CROSSED the damn road instead of waiting like a fool. Gah, I hate it when that happens ;x

  4. What I can’t stand is people who wait and wait to turn out of a street…it’s like they’re waiting for a f’ing invitation to cross the road.

  5. I always use my blinker, but the left one has been broken for a few months. I hate that, and I feel bad when I want to move over into the left lane, but I can’t fix this by myself.
