Pet Peeves - #1

I'm sure I am not the only person who has experienced this.

I am leaving a parking lot and am waiting to pull onto the roadway when an oncoming car approaches. I sit patiently, waiting for the car to go by so that I can turn onto the main thoroughfare.

Then suddenly it occurs to me that this dillhole is slowing down. Why? Because he's turning into the very lot in which I am exiting.

Only I can't anticipate his turn because he doesn't signal!

So, I'm sitting there, wasting precious moments while this tool dawdles along as if he's the only driver on the road.

I guess I should be more sympathetic. The turn signal is such a difficult piece of equipment to master. After all, it's right there ... you only have to reach up a few inches to click it on.

It's a damn good thing I have control of my road rage.

Hey, jagoff! You've got a turn signal - USE IT!

I always considered this particular driving offense to be incredibly selfish and arrogant. It's like "Hey, YOU have to watch what I'M doing". Dillhole it is!

That's my greatest pet peeve. And it always happens when there's a lot of traffic and you're thinking, as soon as this guy passes, I can go pedal to the metal and turn. Dillholes!

Hey Jagg Off!! ... My turn signal is broken and I am too broke to fix it.

Wait does that still make me the jagg off?

Or does it make me a poor jagg off.

Or does it make me just poor and inconsiderate because I suppose I could have used early 20th century arm signals .... but I supose then you might have thought I was flipping you the bird.

Then I would be a poor jagg off asshole...

Or does it make me...

You have hit on one of my biggest pet peeves...either failure to signal or the perpetual know the one they turn on and leave on for miles on end...

I always wanted to ask (with a smile) a driver to open his window and then brake off his little piece of car equipment he/she is never using anyway.
Is this harsh? Is this rude? Is this violence?

You want me to get off my cell phone, stop putting on makeup, stop eating spaghetti, and stop working on my puzzle while I drive to put on a turn signal to show consideration to my fellow drivers?

Only kidding! I think this is one the rudest "non-actions" of driving. Maybe these drivers think they are taxed for each blink of the turn signal.

I'm the same way and before the untrained, unlicensed, drivers got on the highways, I allowed for it, (maybe it was a elderly driving a new car and hadn't learned all those gadgets yet) but now it's my greatest hope that when that fool parks someone will ease a packet of sugar into their gas tank with my complainments.

Have to say I was snoozing through this one until the perpetual signal entered the picture. Totally irritating... OK, more than irritating... responsible for totalling my car on one occasion. Long story, but I'll never forget that dillhole.

I just posted about idiot drivers this week, and "signal, much?" was one thing I would love for my car to be able to yell at people like that.

I know this is an old post of yours, but I can't pass up a good pet peeve. ;)
