People are funny...

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

People are funny when they try to "traffic shame" you with a honk. I could CARE LESS if you "think" that I did something "wrong".

notice all the "quotes" today - it is that kind of day.

Anyway I was driving south on 35E this morning when I decided to get over in the far left lane from the middle - the truck in front of me kept slowing down....

I put on my turn signal - pause - look over my shoulder - there is plenty of room, so I pull over.

Kenny Rogers in the Toyota behind me HONKS - about 10 seconds after I pulled into the lane.

How did I know it was "Kenny"?
I saw him WAAAAY behind me, like about 10 car lengths and kind of laughed because he HAD "honked" at me - then pulled in front of the annoying truck that had been using "average speed" as his speed limit - and "Kenny" speeds up like a bat out of hell - apparently - because I suddenly "feel" that there is a car driving by my side and look over...
"Kenny" is WAGGING HIS FINGER AT ME. Like "tsk tsk little lady".
Ummm...WTF? I laughed -visibly- and waved at him. Really, just waved and laughed. He took off then and went to the place where old dudes who look like Kenny Rogers go...(f-er!)

why do people get in their cars and automatically become horn-abusers?! oh and I hate that stupid finger wag - how condescending! And why do people drive at ridiculous speeds in parking lots ... hello, pedestrians?! That's my driving gripe of the month :)

Oh, and Kenny Rogers always reminds me of Dolly Parton ... now I can't stop singing, "Island in the Stream," thanks a lot!

Glad I could help! Islands in the stream, that is what we are... I hate parking lot speeders too! The other day at Cub an old man came "litterally" careening around the corner and I yelled after him, "NICE SPEED IN A PARKING LOT SIR!" Much to the delight of onlookers...they laughed and one clapped.
