If you're going 40 in a 50 on a two lane road, I'm going to pass you. Sure, you can speed up the minute you see me getting ready to overtake you, but I AM GOING TO PASS YOU. It's amazing how many times I've gone to pass someone at a very reasonable 55ish in a 50 and they hit the gas because for some reason I've pissed in their cheerios. Then once I've overtaken them and we're both going 80+, they just ride my fucking ass. Like, do you not remember the last 4 miles I was stuck behind you going 10 under? Dafuq...

Another personal favorite is when I'm on the highway, going a solid 10mph over the limit AND steadily passing people that are in the right lane but it's just not good enough for the guy behind me so he'll ride my ass to the point I can't see his headlights. I love it even more when I'll hit a red light and said person will cut to the right lane last second so that when it turns green they can blow by me. This is the part where the inner child gets the best of me, and I launch on their ass just so they end up right back behind me.

Its funny because big cities like orlando have a lot of traffic but people dont drive as crazy it seems. Now tampa, I feel your pain. Naples is getting pretty bad but its moreso on the surface roads than 75. Now the fort myers area is like the east coast, gridlock galore. Sarasota not as bad. Clark road can get bad and 41 from about sarasota central parkway all the way up to fruitville is something else. Pick your poison either you get stuck behind a geezer doing 40 in a 55 or you have some white trash asshole riding your ass.

I95 as a whole is busy it seems like. Im guessing theres a lot of thru traffic.

For me it's all the out of state people going up to the lakes. This morning when I was going to work I'm crusing 70 over taking people on the left on a 3 lane highway then getting back over into the middle lane like a normal person. Then this person with MA plate ahead of me by a good 2 miles goes into the fast lane and doesn't pass the car infront of them they weren't even close to them. So I continue in my middle lane driving 70 like the person infront of me passing the slow person in the left lane. Then someone who's going 80 in the left lane with NJ plates comes up to said slow person I'm passing in the middle lane. Meanwhile the tail end of my car is almost with the slow persons nose. They get over into the right lane and pass me when they could have just waited 3 seconds and had enough room to get back into the left lane. I kid you not less than a mile later they cross all 3 lanes to take an exit. Or like last night I'm going 70 coming up to a car I've been gaining on for the past couple of exits. I go to pass him and he matches my speed. I increase my speed to pass so does he. So now we're doing 75 and still matching and my exits coming up so I drop a gear go 85 and pass him get infront of him and slam on the brakes so I don't hit the person infront of me. They finally got the hint after that.

I think the stupidest thing I have ever witnessed was when me and my dad were at a gas station and this place is busy well the pumps go in a way that they go pararrel with the store and there's no spots or space to park infront of the store because the gas pumps are there. So this woman is parked there not getting gas. After waiting a couple of mins my dad gets out and asks her to move up so he can get gas, and she says "no". My dad says "excuse me your blocking all these people from getting gas no one can get around you". Then her husband comes out of the store with a coffee with his tough voice on "is there a problem here?" My dad tells him what's going on and my this guy tells my dad he can wait". My dad proceeds to lay into the guy telling him that "this spot isn't for your convenience it's for getting gas". Finally the guy looks at my dads hat that says SIG Arms on it and leaves. I've never seen my dad so pissed off in his life.

I honestly think it's a combination of being oblivious to their surroundings and being self centered. I can't tell you how many times in one stretch of road I've been almost lane changed into because someone didn't take the time to do a shoulder check to see their blind spot.

On Wednesday I had to drive into Minneapolis to pick up my wife from the airport. Now I like driving in Minneapolis because people actually KNOW how to drive there. They move, and you can pass, etc. No big deal. But, my wife landed at 4:30 PM, we got out of the airport at 5, and I knew we'd hit bumper to bumper traffic on the way out for a little bit because of construction near the airport, so on my way to the airport, I stopped for gas because I'm down to 1/4 tank.

Pull into gas station, most pumps are full, but I see one on the other side so I circle around and back into it. I start pumping, and I'm almost done when the lady in the car behind me starts bitching at me through her window. I turn around to see that she's not at the middle pump like I thought, but between both of them. So angry lady (who is still bitching through her window) gets out and starts yelling at me, "I wouldn't have pulled up to the pump if I wasn't going to pump gas!"
"Lady, I didn't know you were waiting, you were just sitting there, I thought you were done."
"I haven't even started! Punk ass taking my turn."
"Well I'm sorry Ma'am, I'll be done in a minute."
So she keeps yelling at me, my pump finishes, I put it away, get my reciept, and drive away, with her STILL standing there yelling as ANOTHER car pulls up and starts trying to get gas.

I feel REALLY sorry for that guy.

I rage so hard behind the wheel it's rediculous. I drive very aggressively. I will pass people if they even slightly piss me off, and I will sometimes stay way closer than I should just to get to them. Shit I've even thrown shit out my window at other cars because they cut me off and brake checked me or refused to let me merge in front of them.

I have a problem. I'm working on it, sometimes I get blinded with anger, but I'm getting better.

When I was a kid I remember my mom snapping once. We had been to the grocery store and she'd always load everything in the back of the car except the bread and eggs, which she'd put up front. On the way home this guy was so far up on her ass, for so long, she finally snapped and started chunking fucking eggs at the dude.

I was so proud.

The couple times I've been in Colorado I was amazed at how properly everyone drove. Nearly everyone obeyed the speed limit, utilized their turn signals, left adequate following distance, and used passing lanes correctly. It was refreshing. Then I come back to Michigan with all its speeders, tailgaters, and assholes.

what annoys me is the elderly Florida drivers in Illinois. for Christ's sake turn off the damn turn signal and speed up to the speed limit!!!

but really I think the egotistical selfish bastard drivers are what the problem is now of days. you don't want to know the stories of me almost being in accidents when I took my mom to st. louis for a doc appointment last month. my favorite incident was I almost became a chinese finger trap.

LOL, no. My ex would have taken the gas pump out of my car and put it in hers just to "show" me.

I don't rage out, yell, scream, throw things, etc. I read how the cars are moving, I can tell when the asshole ahead is going to brake check because he keeps mean mugging in the rear view, and I keep my left foot on the brake. Now, I never get any closer than 2sec behind another car, but apparently in MN that's "tailgating" by their estimation, but isn't enough motivation to move right and allow anyone to pass, so they mean mug you and then brake check you.

If there's a bunch of cars behind me, I can't count on them not hitting me, so I back off in that situation. But if the asshole ahead is just in the left lane and being a dick, I'll ride right there at that buffer zone and let him brake check, slow down, speed up, etc. I match speed well for a non-cop, and I've not hit anyone from behind yet. (knock on wood).

But, I don't get mad. I'm irritated, frustrated that these folks don't have any clue how the traffic is supposed to flow, but no room for anger, anger makes mistakes. I'm just constantly looking for the opening I need to get past, and I"ll take it.

i sometimes double or triple my route distance just to avoid the local shit driver magnet roads. never had too many problems on highways, but if there's a double lane road, you better get comfortable while you drive 10 under the limit for absolutely no reason. also, yield signs were clearly a waste of tax money
