Re: welcome to the world of the f**5ing brainless
well, I'm not proud to be honest troops. I never, ever lose my rag, but I've driven about 2k in the last two weeks and my patience with driver's who compromise my safety and my spirit of cooperation on the road is wearing thin, big time.
Sat nav - if you can't read a bleeding map, then don't drive. Manchester has not moved. Paris is in exactly the same place as it has been for God knows how many years. Unless in exceptional circumstances, there is no reason to switch your brain off and your sat nav on.
Mobile phones - pillocks use these when driving. And one day, one of them will kill you. That's a promise. Remember years ago, the Highway Code stated that no passenger should disturb the driver so he/she can concentrate on the road? Ok, so here's a bonus idea - let's give the driver a sat nav that part blocks the screen! Let's give the driver a phone! Let's give the car a DVD TV player! Let's give him cup holders! Yeah, give me a high five for really fu*5king brilliant inventions that remove him from the fact he's piloting - and is responsible for - a tonne of metal! Coz that's real progress! Coffee in a car? Yay! Oh dear. I spilt some running over a pedestrian. I hope it washes out (the coffee. and the pedestrian).
4X4 - i don't want to start a rant here, but why in the name of all that's Holy, do you need all that metal and complicated drive train? I'm not speaking against those that use them, but why why why, does Suburban Mum need this car? Granted, this is a capitalist/consumer society, so we have the luxury of buying what we want. But USE YOUR FU*5KING PEROXIDE HEAD! The local roads are not getting bigger. Putting bigger and bigger Cack-Mobiles on the road, is not going to a) get you kids to school quicker b) alleviate any traffic problems. Unless you are as stupid as you look, surely you must recognise that your car's exaggerated size compounds the problem. For God's sake, wake up; you DO NOT NEED a hulking great 4x4 for the school run.
Middle lane hoggers. You will be given ten seconds to move over. I will then undertake. This does not pose any risk at all to anyone, because you're so stoned on your own gormless stupidity, you don't even know that I've done it.
Foglights. If you steam up behind me with your powerful front foglights ablaze, I will thank you for pointing out the trecherous driving conditions I have clearly missed, by putting on my rear fog lights. I'm not sure why, but this always causes you to drop back a few feet. Hmmm, now why would that be, I wonder? After all, think of it as me thanking you.
Guys - cars kill. The last ten years has seen some of the most stupid and dangerous driving practices accepted as givens. It is time to stop and think about what we do when we drive, and our responsibilities to ourselves and other road users.
