Is it me or is it getting worse???? People not coming to a complete stop so I am thinking they are going to hit me. Look both ways and go anyway? A blinker would be nice once in a while. WTH.

I agree. No one in this town knows that you have to indicate off a roundabout or even how to use a merge lane.

When my daughter was 5 years old she made an interesting comment to me while I was driving her to daycare. She asked, "Why are there so many assholes driving when Daddy drives but there aren't any when you drive." And yes, my husband did sometimes have a problem with testosterone poisoning.

I suspect that today's instant, on-demand world is training a lot of people not to wait for anything. They can see where they want to be, and thus fume at anything that delays them from their goal, even if it is a mom and dad and their little one in a stroller.

In addition, it has been documented that people feel anonymous when they are locked up safely inside several thousand pounds of steel, plastic and glass. They behave in ways they would never do if they had to confront someone face to face.

In other words, the world is going to Hell in a handbasket.

My husband and I were crossing a carpark entrance as a lady in her car had stopped and allowed us to pass and the crazy so and so behind her honked her horn, overtook the nice lady and almost hit my husband, myself and our 4 month old daughter in her pram!!! I was soo pissed I thew up my arms at her as if to say "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" Are people really in that much of a hurry these days?????

I hate to say it but my husband can be somewhat of an ASS. Not with kids but with people in general. I just want to die sometimes. You don't know if someone has a gun or what. Your situation was just nuts. People are out of there minds.
