What does it for ya?... on the road

A while ago I watched and episode of Family Guy when Peter gets this job on t.v. taking about "what really grinds his gear".



Well, sometimes I feel like I should have my own space to set free all those feeling of "frustration" that you get from stuff and situations that really grinds your gears... Oh, wait a minute, I do have that space, and it's right here, my one and only blog.

Unfortunately I don't think I have the time and even energy to put everything that grinds my gears, 'cause lets face if, your feeling, likes and dislikes change with time, right?

Lately something that has really being grinding my gears is all about driving in this little island I live, so here are some the things that are do it for me right now:

"You know what really grinds my gears?" (on the road)

When people are driving and their turn is coming up so they start breaking about 1/2 a block before, as to which the person driving behind them (in this case me) as well as others on the road have no clue of the reason why this person is breaking, so they continue breaking until finally they decide to use the "infamous" indicator light, and by this time you realize why they started breaking in the first place.

In my case when I learn how to drive I learned that you are supposed to first use the indicator light and THEN break, so the person behind you already know you are breaking cause you are going to turn... But oh no, not here, I'm not sure if it's something genetic or just so much sun and salt water that affects people's brain or the ability to drive, LOL!

Also "You know what really grinds my gears?" (on the road)

When people cannot park. What's up with that? The try to park and they either just plain can't or maybe they are on a hurry so they take up 2 instead of 1 parking space leaving no room for others to park. Also I've seen that people have this HUGE trucks (like Dodge Rams and others like it) that when they park they kind of park instead of straight they do it diagonal, not sure if it's because they don't care about the car next to them or just can't manage their own vehicle.


So what's up with people that not only don't know how to park but when they park they use the handicap space? I know that in the US you get fined big time for doing that, unfortunately in this country and many others around the world this is really not enforced, and that's also what really grinds my gears! Like this pictures I found on goggle...

(this police, not only can't park but also is using not 1 but 2 handicap spaces, unbelievable!)

One last thought: Always remember that when on the road and you are driving a car, there's always CAR in the word CARE, you shouldn't drive around without respect and care for others drivers and yourself, right?

So my friends these are some of the things that REALLY grinds my gears!

Now the question is, what really grinds you gears? (at least on the road).

Hummmmmm, well, I hate being behind people that have their blinkers on AND people who have bicycles on the back...cause the tire spins round and round and round and it actually drives me CRAZY! LOL!

As for everything else...I know I am not a perfect driver all the time...however, I consider myself to be a good driver...so when someone does something stupid, I just wave because I know I have probably done it before!

It probably goes without saying that I loathe the assholes who get in the fast lane on the expressway and drop their speed by about 20 mph because they are on the cell phone...I let those bastards have it with my horn every time... oh, and speaking of turns, I love people that turn their blinker on when they are literally half way through their turn!
