More fun with Atlanta drivers…

I dunno if this is isolated to Atlanta, but, hey, it’s where I reside and (unfortunately) drive…

Okay, well first I guess I’m assuming that people actually READ the signs on the road. Which, in this case, I dunno, but it seems like they do because of their behaviour. So why is it that some drivers seem to understand the bright orange construction sign that says “LANE CLOSED MERGE LEFT” as “SPEED UP IN THIS EMPTY LANE AND CUT EVERYONE OFF BEFORE YOU HIT THE HUGE BARRELS”? I mean, come on, people, you have to see the huge line of cars queued up in the left-hand lane, right? Again, I think maybe I just expect too damned much. Apparently so. I only wish I had a truck… and the balls… to do what this one dude– my HERO– did yesterday… sit in the middle of both lanes and block the self-centered pigs from doing their dirty little dance all over the faces of their fellow citizens.

I really wish I had a helicopter. Damnit.

One thought on “More fun with Atlanta drivers…

  1. The key phrase being “SELF CENTERED”…an affliction that unfortunately is becoming the norm in American society.

    The other aspect of this phenomenon that I love as well is that even when you give the self centered assholes speeding up next to you plenty of room to enter in front of you…none of them take it until the very last moment when their lane is about to run out. Try it, give ’em about 4 or 5 car links in front of you to get over. Every damn time it goes completely empty right up until the very last second. Amazing.
