How about when you look in the rear view and there is a car just off your rear bumper in the next lane, when you turn on your TS to turn into the next lane to pass and he won't move to allow you room, your watching the slow truck ahead and him to see if he will back off, so you start to creep to let him know you need to change lanes, and he won't move.

You move over a lane to let someone merge on the highway... they sit there next to you and don't either speed up or slow down to give you room to get back over.

Then you speed up to merge and they speed up .. by that time the line behind them has grown and you can't get in anyway. Or if you slow to let them get ahead the other jerks zoom up and start passing on the right.

Or the guys that are going slow in the right lane or center lane until they see your blinker come on.. then they go like hell to block you off.

I know two couples who meet at the local supermarket at the deli for lunch on Saturday's.
They are called feeding stations: Sams club is the worst: try getting by the mass of shopping carts when these yakers are chomping down on free food.

Her van has a ramp that comes out the side so she really needs to use the Handicap Space marked for Vans. If you can walk you do not need to use the Handicap Space!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This really drives me nuts:bangh ead:

I feel for your daughter. But there are people who CAN walk, who DO drive a big pickup truck and have a handicap. I'm one of them. I can walk, but not FAR. I drive a big pickup because I tow a fiver. I get into it by using the assist handles and my arms. The federal government, the state government, and the county government have judged me "permanently disabled". I have the placard, the disabled veteran license plate, and state and federal ID cards that attest to my disability. Just because a person is not in a wheelchair does not mean they are not disabled. That being said, I make sure that I don't park in the van spots. I have been hassled by well meaning citizens who judge me to be physically fit, one even called the cops. The police officer looked at my ID and sent me on my way.

I have another big one from a grocery/department store.

Person going one way in aisle stops suddenly, or someone that has been stopped and paused...Suddenly without looking whips the cart around swinging the front end in a arc in a 180 degree maneuver. I can't count the times I was passing or standing at the side as someone passed me and then pulled this maneuver. I have always been able to dodge it but I bet it would hurt. And to top it off most, say 80 percent, don't even say I'm sorry... some do but most don't.

We manage a storage facility in McKinney, TX and live on site in our motor home. The other day a moving company pulled up right in front of our RV and this punk kid gets out, unzips his fly and starts taking a whiz right in the main driveway! I went out and chewed his rear end. Thing is, he was less than 50 feet from a restroom facility!! AND to top it off, we have security cameras everywhere and they are very obvious!!

So my gripe is inconsiderate people and laziness!!

I just found another one. Dr's appointments. They give you one for 1pm and 2 hours later the Dr finally see's you... The cattle call method they use today is unbearable to me. Wait 2 hr's, see the doc for 5 minutes and then pay $135.00 for the pleasure of it all

People who write things like this, and fail to proof read their material before sending. All kinds of spelling problems, sentences that run off the wall, so you don't really get what the story is. Do instead of don't. Can't instead of want.

This one is easy to handle... tell your daughter to simply pull up immediately behind or next to the offender... blocking them there and then to call the local police and just sit there until the police come and verify the needs of the offender. Here in Florida I believe it is a $150.00 fine for illegally occupying a handicap spot, even if u do have a temp tag, which by the way are to be used only by the person issued to.

Be safe, report offenders... enjoy the Open Road

This one is simple...I advise the gal behind the lil glass window that my apt time is XX:XX and that I am "OFF CLOCK" during that time, but after 30 minutes my "CLOCK" automatically resets and I charge $165.00/hr for my time billed in 1/4 hr increments... if that is not acceptable PLEASE advise the dr that I am just as important as he is and charge when I am kept waiting...

I have seldom had to wait more than a few minutes past my scheduled apt time !

Be safe out there...enjoy the Open Road
