Frankly, I have limited patience with these idiots.
All good points. I call those 'idiots' 'ignorant'. Ignorant means they do not know, even when they should know. Patience is a virtue, and can actually save lives.

Check back next week, I think it's going to be better than "walmart" or "Thread Killer". But if you don't click it you will never know.... (choices??)

How will the Left Coast drivers learn how to tell merge from mingle?? Will they even believe you can have rules on a FREEway???

Post count here would be almost 400 if somebody else hadn't started a similarly rantalicious topic that's siphoned off more than a hundred posts: 2 Pet Peeves with spelling..

Maybe they could be consolidated into a single "Post yer Peeve" thread!

I don't think it has anything to do with driving experience, age or vehicle being driven. It is attitude. The attitude is ME FIRST [moderator edit] and it not just driving. How many times have you been in a store and had employees step in front of you making you stop. Or had another shopper push a cart in front of you like you are not there. Or have three people walking down the isle and force you to step aside. Or seen someone with with a family approach a door and the husband or one of the kids opens it and walks through first. Or been sitting in your car and another car pulls in beside you and the passenger looks you in the eye and opens thier door into yours. Or leaves their shopping cart in a handicap space or behind your car and tells you if you don't like move it yourself. Or at the gas station you wait in your MH for the cars in the outside lane to clear it so you won't be blocking everone just to have someone pull around in front of you then pretend you are not there. Or been on the golf course and the fivesome playing slow ahead of will not let you play through. No it's not just in driving it is in everything and it is all ages not just the young, IT IS ALL OF US. Courtesy and kindness are now the exception. And that was just this afternoon. Sorry for the rant. I feel much better now.

I find California Drivers the most Polite on the West Coast! It gets worse the further North You go until BC Where Some of them Stop Dead on the On Ramps! Then those that are not afraid of second Gear do things right!

When I get mad at a driver that doesn't know how to merge, I have the DW check the interwebs for the next WalMart, pull off at that exit and camp there for the night to cool down.

True it is...attitude is everything! However, with age, comes wisdom, and I think I am getting wiser very quickly these days LOL
For those attitudes in the grocery store, I use my Dad's old wisdom, "kill'em with kindness"...also with plain ol' grumpy people, they almost always warm up after being extra kind to them On the road, always let the bad attitude people go first, I want them far in front of me, not behind me, or beside me trying to cut me off Usually I can be found in the parking lot pushing three or four carts into the cart stations to get them out of other driver's way I have been told I am 'the exception', but I choose to be that way, always have been a little 'different', because.....well, simply because of my attitude And you know what? It feels GOOD! So glad you are feeling better now

LOL Should I say I'm from BC? It is sometimes said that Canadians are 'too polite', but not often said by the Brits LOL

PS, the drivers in BC who stop on the ramps (and slow down on every little curve in the road), those are the Albertans hahahaha!

Wow. I did not put my post on here to get people up set. For goodness sake please stop beating that poor horse. I just feel that there are some that posted may not have commented before. My hope is to get others into the conversation and learn from some of the things they have seen. This issue is not a pet peeve to me it is a real safety issue. a pet peeve to me is pups not asking to go out when needed. (they can do that you know) then they leave me a little wet surprise. Thanks all.
