Dear people of the world... where did you learn to drive!?
I am not saying that I am some perfect driver (I mean... I did just finish my online course of traffic school [passed with flying colors might I add]) but I do tend to be fairly aware of my surroundings and drive within a reasonable limit of the law making sure that I am keeping myself and those around me safe. So, yes, I feel fairly confident in my driving ability... except that one time where I was stopped on a hill and gunned it into a blind intersection... but we won't talk about that because NOTHING HAPPENED. Moving on.
Most of the time I don't hate LA drivers... Florida drivers on the other hand, look out! And don't even get me started on Chicago (you would think they are all high school quarterbacks with a cheer squad shouting for them to 'be agressive')... however, when the weather gets 'bad' aka it rains, people forget how to drive. Seriously! It is like when the first snow falls in tundra stricken areas of the globe; people live in that weather for over half their lives and STILL, every year, that first flake falls and it is like a white fluffy blanket of amnesia is draped over their brains.
It's one thing to not drive in gail force winds (which we recently had... don't worry Drew and I survived Pineapple Express just fine) and/or a blizzard and/or any other freak force of nature. Those things are what we like to call weather extremes and proper caution should be used, that is to say I won't judge you for driving like a grandma.
On that note, the drivers I am talking about aren't (as a general rule) the grandma drivers. Grandma drivers annoy me, but whatever, you do you, just don't hold up traffic too much ok? I am talking about the drivers who swerve in and out of lanes, cutting people off, just going all namby-pamby down the road. THIS IS NOT OK, YOU ARE GOING TO KILL SOMEONE (maybe yourself, maybe me, who knows, but do we really want to risk it?! NO.). I know sometimes your Wayz doesn't tell you your turn soon enough, but it WILL redirect you, no need to cut me off like a complete and total jack face (to everyone I have cut off because my directions didn't speak in time... I am sorry). Also, you will get to your destination, I promise, it's best to arrive whole and un-ticketed don't you think?
Moral of the story young ones is to drive safe and be well. ESPECIALLY during the holidays.
