Driving on my @$$-- Excuse me, I'd like a date first.
July 30, 2009 7:48pm CST
I find it unbelievable that I will be driving on local, family street, sometimes maybe 5-10mph over the speed limit depending on the area (neighborhoods never fast, main streets then maybe a little) and a person will come up behind me, much much closer than my poor car would settle for. I almost feel like my poor car should be wined and dined first! Why is it, when I'm already going 10mph over the speed limit, you feel the need to drive as close as possible? I had a person get angry that I was going 40mph as opposed to 30mph on a street that is usually full of speed traps, and less than a mile from my street turn off -- he got as close as possible, put his high beams on, and followed me to my neighborhood in anger only to beep a bunch of times at me for no reason. It was also pitch black and about 830-9pm. If you have ever been guilty of doing this -- why? If you've had this happen to you -- how do you feel about it?

This happens to me all the time, I know that the roads in my neighborhood are public but I have lived here practically my whole life and if the fire department can't find us then what are all of these people that do not live here doing driving so close that I feel like I have a wedgie? To add to that I drive a small car (great fuel milage, I miss my truck) and when they do this at night I feel like I am being beamed up because of all the light. You are not alone friend, they should buy dinner fist.
