RANT TIME.  
I hate stupid drivers on the road.

Okay seriously, you know the whole "turn right on red" rule? I always hate it whenever I'm the one up front and there's always some impatient little fucker behind me who ends up honking his horn or getting visibly impatient with me because I'm not turning right on a red light. Excuse me assholes, but I'm not about to risk my life by turning right when I know that it's not entirely safe, especially on certain intersections where traffic is hell and comes out of freaking nowhere. I have witnessed too many accidents where this happens, my sister was recently in one because she made a right on red turn and she's the most cautious driver I've ever known. So don't be acting all huffy and be on my ass just because I am not risking my life just so you can go wherever it is you gotta go. We all got places we got to be, but you can wait for a minute until the light turns green, it's not that big of a deal.

Next time when you're in front at the turn and you wanna risk your motherfucking ass on a crazy intersection, you can be my guest. But don't honk/act crazy/glare at me through your window as you pass me because I didn't do what you wanted me to do. I'm being a safe driver, you're just being an impatient motherfucker who needs to chillax and learn some manners on the road.

And this has happened to me more than once, and it's really pissing me off. Like seriously, what the actual fuck.

This rant was inspired by this fantabulously relevant video. ItsKingsleyBitch is the funniest and bestest ever, bitches better recognize. ♥

Oh my God, I so feel you. In Savannah, there are a lot of place you can't turn right on red; there's big signs and everything: NO RIGHT ON RED. This means that turning light on red is against the law; it's the same as running the light. But people will just lay on their horns if you don't go! It's insane.

I'm just always scared like if I don't do something they're gonna like, run me over or come out of their cars with a gun or an axe or something. O_O

Dude, this is one of my biggest pet peeves! It's one thing to get pissed off at me if I'm driving like an asshole, but don't get pissed off at me because I didn't do something that's fucking voluntary! You don't HAVE to turn on a red just because you can. JFC. We have an intersection near my local supermarket that's dangerous, like you were saying. You can't fucking see well enough to know if traffic is coming over the bridge or not. It's not safe to make a right turn on red. So after a few accidents, the town finally opened up a right-turn only lane and put up signs that say "NO RIGHT TURN ON RED" and guess what? Fuckers still turn and they still honk at you if you don't. I GET SO PISSED OFF. The last time it happened to me, I actually put my car in park, got out, looked at the guy in the car behind me, pointed to the sign and shouted "YOU CAN'T READ, DUDE? GET OFF YOUR HORN AND OFF MY ASS" and got back in my car. It probably wasn't the smartest thing to do LOL but seriously, that gives me some road rage. If I'm obeying the law, get the fuck off my case. Don't ride my ass because I'm not going 10 miles over the speed limit, don't get pissed off at me because I'm not passing on the right, and DON'T HONK AT ME FOR NOT TURNING RIGHT ON RED. FUCK YOURSELF.

I wouldn't dare to be that bold, lol. However I sometimes get so tempted because some people are just assholes who just cannot take the hint. The most outrageous thing I've ever done while on the road though was flip someone off. I really don't get road rage, just irritation and often times I'm either fearing for my life by other people acting insane. But yeah, I get so annoyed like with these fucktards who act like I'm being a thorn in their side when I'm just obeying the laws of the road. Seriously? You wanna make that an issue now?

I just ugh, why is it so hard for people to not honk their horns and be complete douches? :/

I'M SO GLAD WE HAVE NO SUCH SILLY RULE IN FINLAND, OH MAN

that's just terrible. obviously, i haven't been in that situation, but i sympathise - i'm a relatively new driver, and i don't have a lot of confidence yet, so i'm a very cautious driver, and god, it just pisses me off when people get impatient with me for driving like 78 km/h when you could drive 80. YOU CAN ALWAYS PASS ME, OKAY, THERE IS NO LIMIT FOR HOW SLOW YOU CAN DRIVE.

which, yeah, i know it's hypocritical because i get impatient like that a lot when it's not me driving and we're in a hurry, but i've been trying to be a bit more patient, because now i know how much it sucks.

and, like, when the engine stalls and people behind are honking their horns and IT IS NOT MY FUCKING FAULT OKAY, MAYBE MY CAR'S JUST A PIECE OF CRAP. SHIT LIKE THIS HAPPENS. DEAL WITH IT.

People are just assholes on the road, no matter what. And the fact that these assholes are acting like such immature jerkoffs when you're obeying the laws of the road makes me so confused and irritated. Like, seriously? Is that the game you're playing now?

At least I'll be fine knowing that I'm being safe when they're not, but if they end up rear-ending me because of their impatience then we're gonna have a problem.

I love it when drivers here run the red light or turn into your lane without a signal. Then, there are the ones who'll drive like turtles in the right lane (which is for over 60km) and when you try to overtake them, they suddenly speed up. I once gave some guy the bird.
Renée: Nicci. Myself alone.rogueslayer452 on November 19th, 2010 02:00 am (UTC)
OMG I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE DON'T USE THEIR TURN SIGNALS! I'm always like, it's not that hard. Just a flick of your finger on the lever and that's it. I always use the turn signal, even if it's going into my driveway. ;p But yeah, this is why I'm good at watching everyone around me on the road because people have a tendency to NOT use their turn signal when they go in front of you in your lane. Just, guh, people. Seriously.

I only gave the finger once, and that's when I was really in a pissy/ragey mood.

I always hate it whenever I'm the one up front

OMG THIS. I hate being the first one up at a red light to turn right. I don't mind in my town, because it's small and I know all the intersections. But in the city, I get paranoid that I'm going to make a mistake or not see someone just because there are so many cars, so I don't want to turn.
Renée: Kahlan. Beauty in the breakdown.rogueslayer452 on November 19th, 2010 11:44 am (UTC)
I'm in the suburbs and it can get pretty crazy in certain intersections, especially during rush hour. But I can't fathom driving in the city because, holy fucking shit, I would be so scared. O_O And I've been to our downtown here, I don't understand how people can drive in downtown cities without panicking ever five seconds!

The problem is that most drivers are stupid in my experience. And impatient. And agressive. Agh.
Renée: BSG. Natalie is not pleased.rogueslayer452 on November 20th, 2010 06:48 am (UTC)
I really love driving, but it's those stupid people on the road, especially the aggressive drivers, who ruin the experience for me. Ugh.
