This is what I think of every time I have to deal with most Austin drivers:

what I hate are the people on 360 who treat it like a two lane residential road. The speed limit is 65 people! MOVE!

OH! Or the people who drive on the shoulder for like 3/4 of a mile in order to get to their turn just *that* much quicker.

No turn signal pisses me off too.

And yesterday when I was stopped at the light right before the 360 bridge (heading south) I looking in my rearview mirror and all three drivers I could see had their cellphones up to their ears and were just talking away. And then I looked in front of me and all three of the drivers I could see in front of me were talking away, too! The guy directly in front of me was even gesturing wildly... while driving!

yeah. Drivers suck.

However, the background of your journal is beautiful!

Bad drivers

The worst I've ever seen was a woman doing needlepoint.

Needlepoint. While driving.

She'd glance up at the road then back down at her needlepoint. She did this all the way up MoPac from Bee Caves to when we got off at 183.

It has given me some perspective on the cell-phone talkers. At least you can fling your cell phone away from you in an emergency and not have a needle flying loose through the cabin.

I hope she stabbed herself in the thumb during a sudden stop! Serves her right...

What I hate even worse is those drivers who have that "the lights are on and nobody's home" look when they're on the road. The ones that pull out in front of you without ever acknowledging that they even saw a vehicle, much less YOUR vehicle, or the fact that they nearly HIT YOU. In their minds, they are alone on the road!

And thanks for the comment on the background! That is a photo from Grand Tetons National Park that my sister took during her vacation there a couple of years ago. :)

Ya. You have to love those "I'm alone on the road" people. You just never know where they're going to go. lol And those pics from the Tetons are wonderful. I hope we get to go one day.

How the blazes does he manage that?

Someone told me they saw a woman putting on pantyhose in traffic. I really can't figure that one out!

What, did they have a leg hiked up over the steering wheel while they pulled them up???

Actually yes. Up and to the side of the steering wheel. I guess a stunt only for the very limber. hehehe

Howdy! I came by to say howdy and saw this and cracked up! It so reminds me of Dallas. I always wanted a shirt that said "I see st00pid PPl".

Yes, Hi, I know it's been a while since you posted this, but I just had to comment..

The worst/most dangerous driver I think I've seen was a very elderly lady. I was behind her, got impatient at 45 MPH on an interstate, and passed her.

She had an oxygen tube in her nose, going to a tank in the back seat. I'm sitting there thinking, "What happens if the tube gets a kink in it?"..

Sorry, just had to share. :)
