Driving is Hard

Today is Pathetic Wisdom Wednesday, however, before I post that I feel it necessary to get something off my chest.

Every morning I start my commute around 6:30 AM, and most mornings are fairly easy going, but these past two weeks have been a struggle.  

Not because I don’t want to go to work, but rather… because cattle obviously DON’T KNOW HOW TO DRIVE!!!  

Now, I understand that cattle were never meant to be behind the wheel of an automobile, they were meant to provide leather, meat and milk to the masses.  And perhaps that is why none of you can figure out that tailgating is not the same thing as drafting.  Red lights actually mean that you’re supposed to come to a complete stop and not drive through them.  Related to that, signs that read “Stop” and “Yield” aren’t optional.  Neither are the signs that read “SPEED LIMIT”.  

Crosswalks are for pedestrians! (you know…those who are walking, running or strolling from one corner to another and they ALWAYS have the right of way!!  NOT Trucks, SUV’s, other large vehicles or sporty little cars with dumb, dorky bovine in the driver’s seat!)

Turn signals were invented to alert others around you that you plan on making a right or left turn so it’s wise to use them for such purposes.  

Road construction crews didn’t put the orange cones in the road so you could see if your truck was really a 4-wheel drive off-road vehicle.  

That no matter what lane you are in, you actually have to come to a complete stop when a school bus stops to pick up passengers and those red lights come on when that red sign that reads “STOP” is displayed.   That also goes for four-lane roadways.   Children might be crossing the street and that school bus stop becomes a crosswalk when that bus is there to pick up kids!  Most of you don’t realize this but it’s against the law to pass a school bus that has that red STOP sign displayed.  (That was probably news to 99.9% of you.)

Most of you cattle need to take drivers education all over again and learn how to be defensive drivers.   It’s really not that difficult.  

I would think that if you all drove a little safer, every single automobile accident would be prevented. 

but look who I’m talking too.  

You’re all pathetic drivers.

  1. My pet peeve is the Citibike riders in NYC. They have taken over the streets and often do NOT obey traffic rules, go against the light, drive down the wrong side of the road, on the sidewalk, etc. I wish the city would ban them.

  2. It pisses me off when people don’t obey the school bus one (and also speed through school zones). My maternal lionness kicks in and I want to yell at them: “You are goin’ to f*kin’ hit a little kid, you moron!” Other than that I’m pretty chill about cattle driving.

    • Oh sister, you and I are on the same page with the people who speed in a school zone. I understand that people are in a hurry today, but still, there’s no reason to speed through a school zone and no reason to disregard a school bus that’s stopped for children. It really sets me off as well. 🙂

  3. Ha! Well said. It’s bad enough that we have cows driving cars, but where I live it’s also tourist season, so herds are wandering out into the street and standing there for no reason. My favorite is when they get halfway through a crosswalk and decide to suddenly stop and start sharing pictures on their phones. This is an activity best done on a sidewalk or perhaps a park bench, not right in the middle of the flow of traffic.
