Ok - so you all know I started a new job a couple of weeks. My previous 10 mile commute is now about a 40 minute commute. It is almost all PA turnpike, so no big deal - NOT! I have noticed that by the time I get to work, my nerves are absolutely raw!
WTF is wrong with Pennsyltucky drivers?? As a side, I used to think that I was insulting PA by referencing Kentucky when referring to Pennsyltucky. I have changed my position - I apologize from the bottom of my heart to all the Kentuckians out there. I have no idea how Pennsylvania outranks Kentucky in educational statistics - if our drivers are any indication of the intellectual magnitude of the people of this commonwealth, we are in serious trouble!
First of all, why is it so damn difficult to merge?? MERGE DAMMIT! Don't start - stop - start - stop, then wait until I am on top of you to go!
When driving in the fast lane - you are actually supposed to be passing another car - i.e. driving FAST. If you don't want to drive fast then for the love of God, please just stay in the slow lane!
Do I have a sign on my van that says, "please cut me off"?? Well apparently I do. Yo Day Audi service van that proceeded to squeeze between me and the car in front of me on route 22 this morning just prior to the entrance to the parkway, F-You! What - there wasn't enough room behind me? There was nobody behind me you douchebag!
People on your cell phones - HANG UP! You are worse than drunk drivers! When I see someone at a red light yapping away on his/her cell phone, I just want to walk up to them, and yank the cell phone out of their hands!
Old retired people - why do you need to be out driving in the morning when working people who are still contributing to social security are trying to get to work so that you can continue to receive your social security checks? You cannot possible have anywhere to go - NOTHING IS EVEN OPEN yet! Stay home - sleep in - get out of my f'in way already!
Will the PA turnpike ever NOT be under construction?? Ever?? It is a freaking goat path that is always under construction yet there is no marked improvement? And while I am on the subject, whoever designed the drainage system for the PA turnpike should really be taken out and shot. Seriously, the slightest bit of rain and I am hydroplaning for miles.
I want a giant megaphone on the front of my van so that I can just scream at all of these people when they totally piss me off. Screaming INSIDE the car is not helping me!
Ok - I am done venting for now. Thanks for listening!
