Thanks for using your blinker, a-hole.

One of my biggest pet peeves about driving is those people out there who feel that they are above using their blinker. The "my car is better than yours, and you wouldn't dare hit me anyway" people. I come into contact with these types of people a lot living in the Oak Park/Westlake area, and they seriously make me want to lose my shit.

Listen up, people. You're a shitty driver if you don't use your blinker. I can forgive people who occasionally forget. Even people who look extremely distracted by children. But you? Being on your stupid little bluetooth thing does not excuse you. Neither does taking a swig from your $8 bottle of water.

Weaving in and out of traffic without your blinker is even worse. What could you possibly be thinking? Where do you expect to get? If you haven't noticed, we're sitting in traffic, and your manic switching of lanes without your blinker is not helping anything.

I have much more to say on this topic, but I can't concentrate on being cranky right now because I'm watching Juno on DVD and it's making me happy.

OMG, we are lost sisters, haha. This is my biggest pet peeve besides people clipping their nails in public. NO ONE uses a blinker and it makes me INSANE. It's the #1 source of my road rage, I think. All it makes me think is that I would be the biggest asshole cop, if I was a cop, because I want to give people tickets several times a day!
