Idiot Drivers
I thought I saw it all until this morning. While driving, I've seen people eat & drink, apply makeup, talk on the phone, and a few other dumb things. Now it's time to add another item to the "What Your Car Isn't List".

As you know, the list already looks like this:
  • YOUR CAR IS NOT A RESTAURANT
  • YOUR CAR IS NOT A BEAUTY SALON
  • YOUR CAR IS NOT A PHONE BOOTH

Today's entry...

YOUR CAR IS NOT A POST OFFICE

Yes, while driving on the Blue Route to work, there was a woman behind me stuffing envelopes, licking them, and then stamping them. What the hell was she steering her car with? It sure wasn't her hands. What would have happened if I had to stop suddenly? It's idiots like these that cause accidents and turn a 40 minute commute into an 80 minute commute. They also endanger the lives of themselves, their passengers, and everyone else around them. Idiots like these should have their licenses revoked!

People, when you get behind the wheel of a car, your sole focus should be on driving that car. Make that phone call when you get to work. Eat breakfast before you leave in the morning. Get up an extra 15 minutes earlier to apply your makeup. People, it's common sense and common courtesy.

    Thank you for your thoughts. I have recently finished a paper about incompetent drivers. The stories are horrific and absolutley avoidable. These people really are idiots.

    I witnessed possibly the funniest thing this week. Whilst driving down a long, fairly wide road (which always tempts speeders) there was a taxi behind me, unsurprisingly wanting to speed, and tailgating me. He thought it would be okay to overtake at speed and without indicating. He sped up, moved to overtake, noticed the police car sat on the opposite side of the road, indicated to move back into the lane (still behind me) and justly moved back to where he was. Hilarious.

    You might also want to mention that your car is not a LIBRARY. I once saw a woman with a novel propped on the steering wheel as she barreled down the freeway.
