Boise Drivers

Before moving to Boise, I didn't consider myself as a person who would be prone to road rage. That was before I moved to the land of people-that-don't-know-how-to-fucking-drive.

I work in downtown Boise, which is about a 30 minute commute. I've learned to just accept how idiotic these drivers are, but there are days like today when I wish I could just give another car a friendly nudge w/ my car.

First of all, these mofos drive in the fast lane while going over the speed limit. And they don't get out of the way. Anywhere in California if someone comes up behind you in the fast lane and you don't get the hell out of the way, lights are flashing and there's a little horn blowing. At the beginning, I flashed my lights, but then I got sick of getting flipped off. So I usually just go around them. There are the a-holes that speed up, which really pisses me off.

I've recently noticed a new driving trend. Pulling out in front of me. I generally don't care if someone pulls out in front of me as long as they accelerate quickly enough so I don't have to slam on my brakes or rear end them. These drivers have a lot of faith b/c they pull out no matter what.

I'm disappointed to say that I think Jack is going to turn into a Boise driver. I haven't decided what I should do about that.

I swear, there are stupid drivers everywhere. It's so annoying. Unfortunately MM tops the list. Just go with it, you can't change it. I know, I've tried.

I should not find any of that amusing, but I do for some reason. Probably because I am one of the people who will get in the "fast" lane and drive just barely over the speed limit. I'm not sure who decided there was a "fast" and a "slow" lane. I'm in favor of the "don't drive 80 miles per hour so everyone can live" lane.

In SC the worst I've found is people who run red lights. They all must be color blind. It's nuts. And people here have no clue how to work a 4-way stop. It's like they pull up and instantly go stupid.

It must be a regional thing. Boise drivers sound a lot like Billings drivers.

Did you check your car for a "Pull out in front of me" sign? *g*

If Jack goes to the dark side, I think you really should give him a nudge with your car. lol
