Ever experienced it? Have you been on the giving or receiving end of it? I personally have probably caused a lot of it because I am such a bad driver. If I didnt have to take the kids to school, I would never be on the road. My husband, (God love him) can be such an ass when it comes to driving. If someone cuts him off, he will barely slow down and if he hits them, his thought is well I wasnt my fault. Grrrrr.

I am usually at the receiving end of it . . . from my husband . . . while he is in the car . . . while I am driving. He hates the way I drive. Tooo slow. {:+)

I'm a calm driver. People occasionally annoy me, but I'm not horribly bothered. I do get really annoyed when I'm on the interstate, making the 3 hour trip to Chad's military housing, and there are two cars driving next to each other doing the same speed. If you're not passing, why would you block up the passing lane?

I have been on the receiving end of it, which cracks me up. Because I've only been on the receiving end when somebody else has broken a traffic law....and occasionally that just calls for a swift response :)

For example, I didn't have a stop sign and continued to drive and a woman pulled into the intersection. We both had to break hard to avoid a collision and she flips ME off. At that point, I did roll down my window and say, "Way to go asshole! I guess that BIG yellow sign saying 'Cross traffic does not stop' has words too big for you to read huh?"

I usually just shake my head and drive away without reacting at all, but she flipped me off for her idiocy...and I just couldn't believe it.

Awesome - if only everyone did that :) I don't have one that is hands free, so I just use it. Great excuse for avoiding phone calls - Sorry, I was driving, I couldn't take your call :P

We used to travel with my hubby a lot so I made sure I had what I needed for what ever came up on the roads.

I have a cell phone so I am the phone calling the cops for speeding and cutting others off or not stopping at the stop signs.I know shame on me but I figure if everyone did this then we wouldn't have so many wrecks or dangerous people on the roads.

I'm actually a very calm driver. Other people on the road don't really annoy me that much. Very occasionally if someone does something stupid I might mutter under my breath, but you won't catch me raging at them or anything.

I have, however, been on the receiving end. Just yesterday, I had someone flip the bird at me (or as my daughter put it "stuck up his rude finger) all the way up the road (I watched in my rear vision mirror in amusement). I'm not certain why. I had just been driving very slowly on a very busy, narrow street looking for a carpark outside the footy oval so I could get my son to his game. No point getting frustrated in a situation where EVERYONE is looking for a carpark. Maybe he spotted the I took before I did, but I happened to get there first, I don't know. Anyway, things like that make me laugh. I just ignore it to be honest.

Every day! I live in Rhode Island! Massachusetts is at times worse though. That state has been voted to have the worst drivers in the country. I think that is why we call those drivers Massholes. All from Mass. don't take offense because when I heard Mass. was voted to have the worst drivers I didn't fully agree and think Rhode Island is the worst. Hmmm I think maybe we have a tie for first.



And Shannin my hubby can drive like an ass too! It pisses me off when he does it with the kids in the car.
