Mind if I Turn Around?

Don't do this: Driver pulls U-turn on Ross Island Bridge midday, midspan | OregonLive.com

What they said about the bridge being slightly wider than your vehicle is true. I worked just past the east end of the bridge and had to turn left at the end. I still avoid driving in the inside lane. Speed limit is 40 mph but if your are doing less than 60 you run the risk of being rear ended.

44+ years in a truck - still haven't seen it all.

What I find more and more these days are people that are completely oblivious to anything except what they need for themselves. They don't think at all about the impact they may have on others around them.


The other day I was following a young woman out of a store through a single-wide doorway. Just as she got into the doorway her cell phone went off and she literally came to a screeching halt in the middle of the doorway to answer it, blocking my exit. In fact, she stopped so abruptly that I almost ran into her. I stood there a few seconds as she just stayed in the middle of the doorway and started a conversation with whomever called her. I finally said "excuse me" and pushed past her. Under my breath, I may have suggested a new place she could store her cell phone!

You can't fix stupid!
I always tell the jerk that cuts me off way too close or approaching a stop light that it is ok "I can stop this rig on a dime, however you should realize that the dime is in your pants pocket".

Had a similar incident at a Wal Mart.
Certain people don't know what a red curb means here, and park there all the time, even blocking traffic.
Well those type folks were ahead of me walking in, and met up with some kin folks in the doorway.
No way to get buy these large folks. So I just stood there looking at them.
I finally said "Excuse Me !" they then looked at me, and made an opening for me to get through.
But didn't move off away from the entrance at all.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

That behavior really gets me as well. So many times in stores these younger women cut you off and then look at you and say sorry. My reply is yes you are!

Had ignorant steel 10 minutes of my life I won't get back. Woman had let her car in the pump lane and proceeded to take her 2 kids into Arbys for dinner. After 7 minutes walked into Flying J, raised my voice (store Pa was out, go figure), who has the Buick in the Pump one? Took another 5 minutes to load up her kids & the meal and move on.
