My mom is staying with us for the summer and it’s the best thing ever. There’s a chance my in-laws might also visit during the summer and it will be so nice to have an ally around for that visit.
There are tourists flocking to our area and it has made driving more frustrating than usual. The road that’s the cross street by our house is so congested as it is but during the summer, holy hell. And, I hate driving anyways. It’s always made me so tense and stressed.
My mom and I were coming back from the store because oh my fucking god, no matter how much I plan, I go to the store at least three times a week for shit I forgot, even though I always… well I mostly have a list.
Anyway, there was an older woman ahead of us doing at least five under the speed limit.
A mild annoyance but oh, well.
Then, this woman started to put on her brakes.
A normal thing to do.
But, she then came to a complete fucking stop on the two lane road.
What the fucking fuck?
I looked at my mom and said am I just crazy or is this woman turning really fucking slow?
She’s turning really fucking slow, my mom replied.
This woman came to a complete stop on our two lane road that goes by our house and she just fucking stops.
Who dropped the acid in my water?
What the hell, lady?
Can you turn any slower?
Yes. Yes, she can.
And with that, she made the slowest left hand turn in the entire history of left hand turns.
When she was finally far enough out of my way, I hit the gas and looked back in my rearview mirror.
And what did I see?
This lady was still in the process of completing her turn into the golf course entrance.
I just don’t get the way people drive anymore. Common courtesy has blown to the winds. People drive like they’re the only people on the road.
Yes, I’m bitching about drivers because I’m officially old. Next week I’ll have a post entirely centered around the price that things where when I was a kid.
Okay, no, I won’t.
Or will I?
What’s your driving pet peeve or an annoyance you’ve had lately with driving?
