    Default Don't do u-turns on crowchild

    2 days ago the lights were out at Slowchild and Banff Trail (flashing red 4 ways) and Slowchild and Sarcee (also flashing red 4 ways).

    So it was already a long ass drive home, and finally I get through the 4 way flashers at Sarcee, heading west on Crowchild and get to do the speed limit for the first time since I left work. People headed towards downtown on Crow are also backed up really far at Sarcee, and I start to see people cutting across the grass (well mud now because so many idiots are doing it) and doing u-turns onto my side of the road. No big deal, they are all way ahead of me and there is lots of space because its a 4 way stop at the last set of lights.

    Then some dumb bitch in an integra thinks she can pull a u-turn into the lane infront of me and do 0-80 in about 3 seconds before I get to where she pulled onto the road. So I have to hammer the brakes and swerver around her making sure to give a healthy dose of the horn.

    Todays lesson: U-turns on Highways during rush hour are BAD

    Funny you should ask, she tried to pull a fly by or some shit after and it was sticking out the window waiting for her.. just looked forward driving with the finger out.. thats my favorite because no matter what she is doing back she can tell I can't see it cuz i'm not even bothering to look.

    everytime I see people do that, I hope they get stuck in the median or stretch up the bottom of their cars. The median is there for a reason, but people just don't care.

    Or when people don't stop at 3 way stops and blam it on you and when you lay on the horn they still figure it was your fault and finger you.

    ha ha ha...
    actually this sorta reminds me of this one Judge Judy case I saw.
    This one girl was in court because she was suing for damages caused to her car by the pedestrian.
    She said she honked the horn for the pedestrians to get out of the way at the crosswalk.
    HA HA HA HA
    and boy, did the Judge just give it to her and she awarded costs to the pedestrians because the pedestrians counter sued.

    Why do people give you the finger or get angry when they're in the wrong?
    Nutbags!!!
