The idiot who thought a roundabout was a viable traffic solution and people who slow way down in a traffic lane to turn instead of hitting the shoulder first

The speed limit on the road to work is 65mph. We have a lot of what I call "Polish drag racing" on the way to work. That'* when two people get side by side and neither one gets ahead, blocking everybody else.

Another one is when I'm usually going much faster than somebody and they think it'* a good idea to just randomly get in my lane in front of me because they are going 2 MPH faster than the car in front of them when I was going 15 MPH faster than them to begin with.

When they are on base shopping at the Commisary I call them "dependapotomus".

It'* in reference to the fat dependent wife who uses her husbands rank like its her own and thinks she knows the Military.

oh ya had enough of that one myself had a specialists' wife acting like she was hot crap ordering people around cause her husband was a lifer E-4 and had 12 yrs in with no rank advancement when he came up and started acting the same way telling me to get out of line so they could get in ftont of me cause they were in a hurry! I turned around he took one look at my rank and my green beret and quickly hurried off like a scorned puppy. ya had to be there to see their faces funny as hell
