Pet Peeve #1

I don't want to turn this into a Complaining Forum, but it struck me that others might have some of the same pet peeves that I do. Thus, I submit to you the first of what is sure to become a laundry list of things that piss me off, starting with the worst one.

Selfish drivers suck. Those three words say it all, really. Every day, as I see people running red lights, weaving in and out of traffic, tailgating and generally acting like inconsiderate buffoons, I'm reminded of how different things are today compared to 20 years ago. Is it my imagination, or have things disintegrated on the roads and highways of this country? Looking ahead into the next 200 years or so, I envision a time where people will get into their cars, type the address of their destination into a keyboard, and the car will drive them there safely and efficiently. We need to do something about the horrible state of traffic in the world...and removing the human factor should be priority numero uno. Put our cars on auto-pilot! There has to be a system where we can remove human flaws from the equation. I won't see it in my lifetime, but maybe my great-great-great-great nieces will. For the time being, I implore you: Be courteous on the road, willya? Thanks.

What are your pet peeves?

Brett Bayne,

Gee Brett, how convenient of you to not mention the time you ran my crippled uncle off of a cliff in a fit of road rage.

He's dead now Brett, and there's nothing you can do about it. My Uncle is dead. I just wanted you to know that.
