People have become even bigger idiots than they used to be. I enjoy having a smartphone but I don’t use it in my car. What the fuck is with people and their fixation of having to dick with the phone all hours of the day. People sit at green traffic lights longer than ever before now. They play games on their phone while driving on the turnpike (I’ve see this first hand). I work in IT and I have to be available a lot. I don’t need to check my email in my car, or look at social media. More people are now hanging out in the left lane of the expressway. Some don’t even do the speed limit. What the fuck? Drive your damn car and quit fucking with other shit. Pay attention so other people don’t die at your hands or because you were intrenched in your phone.
I love to drive. I drive 70 miles a day and have for 16 years now. I don’t mind it. I have heard people in their twenties say “I’m scared of driving”. What has happened to people? Is everyone a big pussy now? It seems like over the last 10 years I have watched people turn into space cadets. They can’t make choices on their own, they can’t drive, they can barely walk without looking at the phone.
People can’t even merge anymore. Every single day I am behind someone getting on the expressway or the turnpike that thinks they can safely merge into traffic while they are going 40MPH. The speed limit is 65 and 70. You can’t merge into a highway going 40 without creating all kinds of problems. Not only do they create problems for the traffic already on the highway, but they also screw the people behind them. Idiots.
PLEASE, TAKE DRIVING SERIOUSLY. PEOPLE DIE DAILY BECAUSE SOMEONE ELSE WASN’T PAYING ATTENTION.
Put the device down. Keep your head on a swivel. Stay aware of your surroundings. Don’t be a rude assbag. Don’t tailgate. Use your turn signals. Only use the left lane to pass. Don’t speed up when someone tries to pass. Use cruise control! There are other people around you walking, or driving that have things to do and don’t want to die because you were not paying attention.
Yeah, what happened to white wall tires? I know they have been not on cars for the most part for a long time. I however saw a nice Buick with white walls and then started looking at all the other cars. Just booring black wall tires. No raised white letters (RWL) or white walls. Just booring black wall tires.
Now I understand that some of the tires these days are 50 series or smaller and that doesn’t leave a whole lot of room for the white wall to fit.
I think white wall tires look elegant on some cars (think Buick Lucerne here) but look like crap on others.
Heck why doesn’t anyone put raised white letter tires on their cars? They look neat with the letters spinning around as you’re driving.
Who knows, maybe I’m showing my age, but I still think that we should have white wall tires, and raised white letter tires as OEM on certain factory cars.

Well, it’s been about 15+ years since I have used Rain-X. This last weekend I decided to buy some and put it on the front windshield of my car. I wish I would have started using this stuff long ago. I tried it once or twice in the past but I just couldn’t seem to get the ‘haze’ off my windshield. I must have done something wrong in the past because it worked fine this last weekend.
It rained like crazy on Tuesday and I only had to use my windshield wipers when driving under 35MPH. About 90% of my driving is on the Turnpike so Rain-X works awesome for me. It just blows me away how the water just hits the windshield and rolls right up and off at a very high rate of speed. The faster you go the faster it comes off the windshield. I love it.
For those that don’t know…

People that drive (and stay in) the left lane suck ass. I drive the turnpike everyday and every now and then I encounter some jackass that will just drive in the left lane of a 3 lane wide highway and drive under the speed limit or just above it. Sometimes there will not even be anyone in the middle or right lanes. These people just do not have the common courtesy to move the fuck out of the left lane. The left lane is for passing. It is not for chilling out in and driving and talking on your mobile phone. These people must be in la-la land. I bet at least 3-4 times a week I run into someone doing this. Idiots.
I also wonder about the people that come up behind you and then don’t pass you. I drive the center lane of the turnpike daily and I usually have my cruise control set on 68MPH in a 65MPH zone. There are many times when there is nobody in the left or right lane and someone flies up on me and just stays there. If they are in such a fucking hurry, why don’t they go around? If I move into the right lane they fly by and then go ride the ass of the next car in line. It’s like they don’t have the brains to go around in the left lane but they will fly on if you move over. What the fuck are these people on? I don’t ever ride in the right lane because that is where the big rigs drive 95% of the time.
Oh well, I guess it really doesn’t matter. I’m just glad I’m not one of these goofs.
Have a day…
