Rant of the Week: The Forgotten Turn Signal


My evacuation from work to home is a 30+ minute fast-paced, aggressive, hurried process that I endure Monday through Friday in order to get from Point A to Point B as fast as possible without killing myself or someone else. Even if I have a tremendous day at work, as soon as I hit the road, I turn into a warmonger. Let's face it - there are a lot of idiots out there driving around. I could write a book solely on this subject. One page of the book would be about the bastard that I followed home one day that forgot about his left turn signal. He left it on so long that I actually had time to take a video of it. In HD at that.

From the time I merged on the highway until the time I merged off the highway, I followed this guy. His left turn signal was clicking the entire time. I can understand if someone gets distracted and forgets about it for 30 seconds or so, but 20 minutes of turn signal hell is just straight up bullshit. I shouldn't let things like this get to me, but I'll be damned if I wasn't waiting/wishing/praying/imagining that his car would pull a Ford Pinto/Scanners head explosion/Hiroshima combo right in from of me.
