Default Idiot Drivers...(rant)

Man... trying to merge onto a freeway is not as easy as it used to be. I was about 300 feet behind this van, and so we turn onto the freeway onramp and he starts accelerating and so i get a bit closer because i was going to squeeze into the left lane and get around him, but halfway up the ramp, now travelling close to 50 mph, he decides to stop, now i don't mean slow down and pull off to the side, i mean DEAD stop in the middle of the on ramp..now there were no obstacles, no one even on the freeway, but stops....wow arent drivers skilled nowadays? So i had to go around him, but no thats not going to work, because no he blocks me...so i back up and try to go round on the other side...but no he does it again....why do i feel as if the world is out to get me...? So now im really pissed, so i decide to jam really fast on the other side, and go WOT, i felt better when i blew by him and kicked a bunch of sand at him....that was fun...until i find him chasing me....too bad he was driving some crappy minivan....i still don't know why he started that crap....wierd stuff, life nowadays huh

Yea, so many people on the road are complete morons...especially slow people on the freeway. I've had someone that missed an off ramp go in reverse to get to it as I was trying to get off of it. If I couldn't control my bonnie so well, she'd be at a wrecker for sure (~70mph vs. -10mph Escalade). Blows my mind how horrible people are. Don't get me started on red lights and stop signs.

There is nothing more annoying than 2 people occupying a 2-lane highway traveling at 45 MPH or less in a 55 zone and not being able to pass them. Apparently a blaring horn and flashing lights doesn't mean anything to them.

i always go at least 5 over the limit. if, at any time, anyone comes up behind me and follows too closely (that being defined as: i can no longer see your headlights, at 55+ mph), i find someone going the speed limit near me and accelerate to be even with them... and slow down to the speed limit. any flashing lights, blaring horns, or finger demonstrations will be followed by me slowing down further to make them think that they can get by me in the other lane... i make them think they can so theyre accelerating to get passed... then i accelerate. i then make them think im going to pass the other car so they get behind me, where i immediately slow down. i repeat as desired until i feel ive had my fun.

im going to get shot.
