Wow. That's horrible. But not suprising considering the number of horrible driving decisions I see people make every day in NoVa.

Last week I was driving to work on 95N in Howard County and the person in front of me kept hitting their brakes for some reason even though there was no one directly in front of them. When we got to a bit of a curve in the road I was able to see into their side mirror to figure out the distraction - She was vigorously picking her nose and was braking every few seconds to check her schnoz in the mirror.
It really did grind my gears.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

i can't play the howard county games out here. if the opportunity presented itself at a light, i may ask "are you prepared to go to court?!?" to another driver. or maybe just tell them "i know what you did..." but i haven't tried anything like that in these parts

With that tag she should be in jail !! I see it every day , I was behind a guy on Burke Lake rd ( doing 45mph ) and the car in front of me drifted right , drifted left actually clipped the median . As i went around the guy , I noticed that he was playing a game on his IPhone ?? I would love to see the state of Va. punish texting /cell phone the same way we do for DWI .

New update that bad huh? I'll have to check it out I guess.

EDIT: What's the fuss about? Seems fine to me.

Use it for a few days. There are bunch of little annoying things. Plus and Iam not sure if it is TT2 or this site but usually when you sign out then come back to the site all the "unread" threads since your last log off are highlighted. It has not been doing that of late. Most notably on TT2 but also even on the regular site.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

people who litter and dont clean up after themselves in public. I live close to a great park that has all the bells and whistles...football, soccer, baseball fields, 2 acre lake which you can fish, probably 5 miles of wooded trail, dog park and even 2 horse rings. its great. B/c im so close im up there 5 outta 7 days a week running or hitting the dog park up. It makes me sick to see people out there just trashing up the place, especially with all the trashcans available. I would love to have someone roaming the park with a baseball bat enforcing the litter law.

Does that on mine too. Was frustrated the other day, I looked at one thread, had to go, closed TT2, came back, and about 7 other threads were also off the unread list. I could find them, but still, it didn't use to do that. And the color scheme is worse also...

There was a update today so maybe some things have been fixed.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Stupid emails like this that the old bats in my office send out at least 4 times a day; sometimes you think it is a long winded joke all the one below only to find it is one of those dumb "life is precious" email:

The
Cab Ride
I arrived at the address and honked the horn.
After waiting a few minutes
I walked to the
Door and knocked.. 'Just a minute', answered a
Frail, elderly voice. I could hear something
Being dragged across the floor.


After
A long pause, the door opened. A small woman in
Her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a
Print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned
On it, like somebody out of a 1940's
Movie.


By her side was a small nylon
Suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had
Lived in it for years. All the furniture was
Covered with sheets.


There were no
Clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils
On the counters. In the corner was a cardboard
Box filled with photos and
Glassware..


'Would you carry my bag
Out to the car?' she said. I took the suitcase
To the cab, then returned to assist the
Woman.


She took my arm and we walked
Slowly toward the curb.


She kept
Thanking me for my kindness. 'It's nothing', I
Told her.. 'I just try to treat my passengers
The way I would want my mother to be
Treated.'


'Oh, you're such a good
Boy, she said. When we got in the cab, she gave
Me an address and then asked, 'Could you drive
Through downtown?'


'It's not the
Shortest way,' I answered
Quickly..


'Oh, I don't mind,' she
Said. 'I'm in no hurry. I'm on my way to a
Hospice.


I looked in the rear-view
Mirror. Her eyes were glistening. 'I don't have
Any family left,' she continued in a soft
Voice.. 'The doctor says I don't have very
Long.' I quietly reached over and shut off the
Meter.


'What route would you like me
To take?' I asked.


For the next two
Hours, we drove through the city. She showed me
The building where she had once worked as an
Elevator operator.


We drove through the
Neighborhood where she and her husband had lived
When they were newlyweds She had me pull up in
Front of a furniture warehouse that had once
Been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a
Girl.


Sometimes she'd ask me to slow
In front of a particular building or corner and
Would sit staring into the darkness, saying
Nothing.


As the first hint of sun was
Creasing the horizon, she suddenly said, 'I'm
Tired. Let's go now'.


We drove in
Silence to the address she had given me. It was
A low building, like a small convalescent home,
With a driveway that passed under a
Portico.


Two orderlies came out to
The cab as soon as we pulled up. They were
Solicitous and intent, watching her every move.
They must have been expecting her.


I
Opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to
The door. The woman was already seated in a
Wheelchair..


'How much do I owe you?'
She asked, reaching into her
Purse.


'Nothing,' I
Said


'You have to make a living,' she
Answered.


'There are other
Passengers,' I responded.


Almost
Without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug. She
Held onto me tightly.


'You gave an
Old woman a little moment of joy,' she
Said
'Thank you.'


I squeezed her
Hand, and then walked into the dim morning
Light.. Behind me, a door shut. It was the sound
Of the closing of a life..


I didn't
Pick up any more passengers that shift. I drove
Aimlessly lost in thought. For the rest of that
Day, I could hardly talk. What if that woman had
Gotten an angry driver, or one who was impatient
To end his shift?
What
If I had refused to take the run, or had honked
Once, then driven away?


On a quick
Review, I don't think that I have done anything
More important in my life.


We're
Conditioned to think that our lives revolve
Around great moments.


But great
Moments often catch us unaware-beautifully
Wrapped in what others may consider a small
One.


PEOPLE MAY NOT REMEMBER EXACTLY
WHAT YOU DID, OR WHAT YOU SAID ~BUT~THEY WILL
ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW YOU MADE THEM
FEEL


You won't get any big surprise
In 10 days if you send this to ten people. But,
You might help make the world a little kinder
and more compassionate by sending.
it on and
reminding us that often it is the random acts of
kindness that most benefit all of
us.


Thank you, my
friends and family.........
