Get off MY road!

So, a lot of my friends that get in my car and drive around with me realize I have necessary road rage. There’s necessary road rage and uncalled for road rage. I think I am being reasonable with my road rage. Let’s see what you think.

slow old people crossing the road in the crosswalk – I’m totally fine with this. They’ve got to go buy their groceries and I understand their elders.

old people walking slow across the street diagonal – It takes longer to do and I dislike it so much. Please, just follow the straight line across the road. It’s easy for me to know that you’ll make it across sooner. It’s like mid walk they change their mind.

children and parents crossing the street – I can’t stand these parents that walk ahead of their children, but then realize that half way through their kid is still playing attention to their toy and not walking right behind them. Then, they have to go back take junior by the arm and slowly but surely cross the street. Maybe you should say ready set go with your kids and make sure everyone is ready to walk across. That way I don’t have to wait for you and your five kids to cross.

crossing the street slowly just because– there are people that run up to the cross walk but once they’re in it they go extra slow. Not just your average slow but they just had a knee operation slow. Or there’s the people that oh my this car is waiting for me, but then they have the nerve to look back at the people that their with who are five feet back and wait in the middle of the road. I didn’t sign up to wait for your and your family. You were at the cross walk I let you go, they’ll have to wait for the next opening. Or next time you wait for them before you go charging into the road.

Now, correct way to walk across the street – Walk swiftly as you can because this is not a stroll through the park, if you’re old you’ve got a slow speed limit I understand, walk behind your kids and get them across with ease, and don’t look back for anyone. You’re in the street. I’m paying attention to what I am doing and clearly you should too.

IF IT’S RAINING – I let everyone go because I feel bad that you’re in the rain. I’m dry, so it doesn’t matter to me.

Please cross the road like you have some where to be. I mean it’s not like you’re going to your own funeral. Target isn’t going to kill you. Be happy you can walk!

Is That My Exit?

One of the things that kills me is people older than me that don’t know there surroundings. I’m still pretty young, but when I drive I know where I am going most of the time. People these days don’t know road names or numbers. They don’t even know landmarks. They get an address and instantly put it into their gps when the street is right down the road. All of the people I travel with have lived in the same area for around the same amount of time, but they still don’t know how to get to the easiest of places. Sometimes I wonder what do these people usually do during a car ride? Then, they’ll tell me that they’ve come to this same place thousands of times and I have to say out of all those times did you not look to see what was around you? I don’t understand having to always gps things five minutes for your house on a main road. I guess some people aren’t as coordinated as I have trained myself to be. It’s crazy driving with people that have no clue where anything is because when and if we do get lost I am the one that must Macgyver our way out of the dead end road. I don’t know what else to say, but pay attention and try to be helpful. Look where you’re going, so the next time you want to go there you can have a little bit more of an idea how to direct someone to get there.

If you need to get directions I totally suggest google maps! love it!
