I agree with that picture, but there are limits. If I see you in my rearview mirror shifting lanes like an idiot just so you can maintain your 15+ mph over the speed limit, I will most likely accelerate or change lanes to cut off your planned route when you get close to me.

I don't have a problem, in any way, with you doing that. However, I approach it a little differently. I quickly move out my way to let that idiot get past me. I view him as a cop magnet. I figure the cop will be busy ticketing him as I go by, unnoticed, at my 5-10 mph over the speed limit pace. whistle grin

Great graphic, Mary. Now come up with one that explains how the on ramp enables you to get up to freeway speeds BEFORE you join the freeway. I am so weary of being forced to enter a freeway at 40 mph cuz the idiot entering ahead of me thinks, mistakenly, it is safer to to merge with freeway traffic while going 20 mph slower than the traffic. mad

Yeah, letting them take point saves ME from tickets!

Once I was with a friend who drove by a highway patrol officer who had someone pulled over. He waved his hand at her, gesturing her to pull over too. She started laughing..."I'm so sure! I'm not pulling over for THAT. He's gonna have to come get me." Sure enough, a mile later, he was behind her. When asked how he could prove she was speeding. he pointed to the sky. Those freaking police planes! LOL!

I hate coffee or restaurant drive-throughs when they ask "Would like a 'soandso' with that today?" or "will that be all today?"

Until they invent time travel, adding "today" is redundant!!!!

I'm with you, especially the restaurant drive throughs. I have my order all composed in my head and then they start throwing out suggestions that make me forget what I want.

An old pet peeve, recently re-annoying: Screw-on F connectors on RG8 when the connection point is tight, difficult to get to and you don't have a tool to use.

Wow, did I just open myself up with straight lines....
