Ride in today

What is it with folks riding your bumper? I had an ass in a pick up riding my ass in traffic on 128 for morning rush hour. . . all I could see was the grill, no bumper or windshield. Dude, I was doing 70 and there was traffic, where do you think you were going to go? He eventually jumped over one lane and passed me so he could be in front of me for the next 5 miles or so. The small consolation I got is when I pulled over to get off at the Pike I passed him. . . . so I guess being a jerk and riding my ass really helped get him places faster. . . .

Then on the off ramp I had a nice idiot getting off the pike try to merg through me while talking on the cell phone. Now I am not one of those wanting to ban cell phones, I use mine while driving every day, but be reasonable about it for God’s sake. Get off the damn phone when you are doing things like merging or driving around the parking lot and you need to pay attention to what you are doing! Leave the cell phone calls for when you are going down the highway not changing lanes and such. . . .

I guess this is just further proof that common sense is not common. . . .

Come on JD, tell me you really didn't explect to find common sense by the truckload in public, did you? LOL. Riding someone's bumper can cause you to get higher insurance premiums faster, but not get to your destination faster. The difference is very hard for some to perceive.

I guess, but I wish I could afford the gas to take my truck to work instead of an econobox. . . . And I would like to think I don't turn into that a**holl when I am in my truck. . .

Someday folks will learn to drive around hear. . . it is only a few but they make it hell on the rest of us.
