2. If you got into the wrong lane, don't force yourself into mine. Newsflash, if you got yourself into a turn only lane, guess what? Too fucking bad, make your turn and loop back around and try again. When I'm in a no turn lane and you're in a turn left/right only lane, and our light goes green, don't slam on the gas and cut me off simply because you're too busy playing with your cell phone to see the arrows in each lane. A vehicle is something that gets you from point A to point B. It's not your living room, where you need to constantly fiddle with the music, lights, your food, and this and that, so much to the extent that you're a complete idiot on the roads. Plug your iPod in before you start driving, hit shuffle, and keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
3. To the lazy fucks I see standing 15 feet away from a crosswalk trying to slowly walk out into the road to get cars to stop so they can cross: Fuck you, I'm not even going to slow down so if you keep walking onto the road you're going to have Jeep imprinted in your ass for about a week. Take 10 seconds, walk to an actual crosswalk (yes, they exist), and I'd be happy to stop to let you cross. Just because you want to cross the street, does not mean you can do it anywhere you want to, and it doesn't mean I have to stop and let you cross. What baffles me are the people that do this with a baby in a stroller, and the second they see a vehicle coming they sprint across the street pushing the stroller.
If people just took an extra minute out of their day to spend on focusing on the roads, and other cars, I think we'd all have much less stressful commutes. —In no rush over here
