When The Dog Bites, When The Bee Stings

I'm tired of having to share this planet with so many jackasses. By that I mean people out there who have little or no regard for others: The ones who can't be bothered to move their shopping carts ten feet to the little shopping cart stall, but instead leave it in the middle of a parking spot, either taking up a useable space, or allowing it to roll into someone else's vehicle; People who are in such a hurry to get where they're driving to that they don't clear the snow off the back or side windows of their car (I mean who cares what else is going on out there, so long as they can see straight ahead through a pinhole in their windshield - it's not like they're the type that would bother to check their blind spot when changing lanes after all and it is representative of the tunnel vision selfishness they're displaying)

So, in an attempt to twist a crabby man rant into something fun and amusing, here are a few of my favourite things. Okay, just one of them, but with a couple expansions:

  • Watching a needlessly aggressive rabbid lane changer zip in and out, in and out, in and out , crossing three lanes of traffic back and forth and back again, trying to get ahead, all the while slowly creeping past them while maintaining a constant speed and remaining in a single lane

....but what's even better than that....

  • Seeing that same car stopped on the side of the road with a blown tire

.....or, even better.......

  • Driving past that same car, which has just been pulled over by the OPP

Of course, that's just a dream. The OPP never seem to be around to put a stop to these dickhead drivers (again more of those selfish people who care only for themselves and their own pursuits, with little or no regard for the safety of others), because they're too busy watching for me to drive past when I'm going a measly 10 kilometres over the speed limit. (Okay, whenever I've been pulled over, I had been going a bit faster than that, but at least they're always nice enough to bump the charge down to 10 K over for me). Ah, God Bless the OPP. And by OPP I mean the Ontario Provincial Police and not the Online Papers in Philosophy (although they do some good work too, but on a different level)
