Slightly more general gear grind, I hate that people think they have to be in a rush. If I don't move at the split second the light turns green and the person behind me honks, I promise you they will miss that whole light while I wait for it to turn red. I do over the speed limit if the majority is going that way, but if it's slower because of traffic you don't need to be weaving in and out like crazy people. If someone takes a few seconds or more as they pass an accident, either out of morbid curiosity, or just to see if everyone looks ok, those 2 minutes aren't going to ruin anyone's life. Enough crud puts pressure, and time crimps on life, if something slows it down, let it. The world will be there when you get home or to work, or where ever you are headed.

I lived in NOLA for one year, best year of my life from that perspective, no northeast manic pressures, no idiots honking cause you kept them from starting to move their car forward 2-3 seconds after the light changed.

Life is short, it shouldn't have to be rushed.

I love being behind one of these decked out 4x4's with high dollar lift kits and when they get to a speed bump they slame on breaks an idle over the 4 inch bump.

Glad you're OK. How's the car? Did you still get to see your date?


Rubberneckers should have their licenses revoked...menaces.
Yeah I was actually driving them home. And thanks for the well wishes, guys.

As for the car.



Pretty minimal damage. Got a body shop estimate today at $423 since they don't have to replace the entire bumper. The guy wants to pay out of pocket, which is fine with me.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

i hate people who take post pictures of themselves on instagram EVERY SINGLE DAY before they go to the gym. Its like they want everyone they know to know they are working out and to compliment them on their body. What irks me more is the number of people who "like" the pictures and post comments like, "wow, you look great! keep up the good work!" Don't encourage narcissism.

It's a technique to encourage peer pressure in order that people stick with their exercise regimen. The picture taking is a little sickening, but at least it hasn't become fashionable at the Proctologist's.........yet.

The saying "Do more with less."

As a government contractor that's the constant mantra. Sorry folks, you do less with less. Drop requirements, don't try to get blood from a stone.

Serching for something like a resturant on the internet and you get all these yellowpage type adds and it makes it tough to find the places home page.
