Grrrr



Incliment weather seems to bring even the hermit of hermits out to drive like a maniac on the highway (or even through town) in an SUV or pick up truck - of any size. They believe that their vehicle was made to handle this type of weather so they must test this belief on the respectible drivers. As fast as they can. Riding your ass until they get a chance to pass you and ride some else's ass, weaving in and out of the slower, more sensible driving, traffic.

They are invincible. Or so they believe. Owners of SUVs & pick up trucks of any size are also of the belief that because they own said SUV or pick up truck of any size, that they are so much more than the lower population who simply own cars or vans of any size. They believe because they own said SUV or pick up truck that they have been raised to the status of a god.

Well, Mr./Ms./Mrs. god person - after riding my ass, zooming around me, here you sit, 3 miles later, having skidded off the road and into a ditch, standing there along the side of the highway on your cell, because you are invincible and your vehicle was made to handle this weather, as I tool on by you, driving a safe speed and respecting the driving distance between me and the next vehicle, and chuckling that you are so stupid as to be out of your vehicle to get splashed by the gunk, muck & mire on the highway as those more sensible vehicles that you flew past now pass you.

You are lucky that it is only YOU off the road and not some deadly pile up your superior driving powers caused.

Do you have a child in that superior vehicle oh god-like one? Cause if you do, I certainly hope that you have learned a lesson. But if I know the likes of you, you have not. Just because *I* drove safely this time ... And guess, what! I will next time too. Idiot.

And as I drove home after drop off, the highway becomes a parking lot north of the exit for Trader's World (I figure you would know that landmark easier than if I said "The Monroe Exit"). Because some god-like superior person decided to speed and ride someone else's ass in the high-speed lane, bouncing their vehicle off of the barrier wall on the 75 overpass of State Route 122. I couldn't see much. I didn't want to rubber neck either - though it is a hard thing to do - but definitely so that I would not cause an accident myself through something stupid. It will be in the paper tomorrow anyway.

Yes, I realize that there are some exceptions to this rant. I know that there are owners of SUVs & pick up trucks who realize that they do not have superior god-like driving powers and therefore take their time. They also realize that their vehicle was NOT made for this type of weather and that it does not matter what vehicle you are driving when you hit ice.

Yes, I realize that this is a holiday driving season and many people are heading out to see family who live in KY, IN, W.Va. or elsewhere. But that is why it is even more important to drive carefully, safely, and respectively during this weather. Because that vehicle that gets hit by the stupid SUV/pick up truck driver very well could be carrying a family.

I thought about how I would write this post before I started. It sure did not turn out the way I had initially thought it would. I was going to go off on this fictional person who is a bum going to see his MIL that he hates and who hates him, driving the SUV/truck purchased by the money made by his RN wife because he was 42 years old and the only skills he had to offer were making $9 / hr as a sales associate at Borders.

I know there is nothing wrong with being a Borders sales associate - as long as you have greater goals in life (perhaps manager or distric/regional manger or higher up within the company) and are not 42 and these are your ONLY skills and forever will be your only skills. BTW - I know this man, he has no aspirations in life other than to make his wife as miserable as he himself is and to keep her down because it makes him feel like a big man. And he will never be anything more than a sales associate. Pathetic.

But when I sat down and actually started to write, what you initially read is what came out of me. And I like it better than ranting at this stupid 42 year old asswipe who thinks he has super god-like powers.

And another thing that sticks in my craw - less than a week ago I put gas in my car at $1.27 / gallon. Its up by 25 cents in less than 5 days. It will not go down again until the second week of January.

Forget the lube, just hope you can take the pain.

I've had enough. I just thought of a response I wanted to say to someone about another matter.

Gotta tell you what he said to her the other day. He was "analyzing" her relationships. He said that the only constant in her relationships was her so that the problems must all be her fault.

Then he went on to say that her first husband beat her because she deserved to get beat.

And she stays WHY???!!!!
