Pet Peeve Phriday


Car turn signals – more specifically the improper use of them.

You got three types of turn signal users

1. The total non-users

2. The always use/long users

3. The proper users

In the first group are the morons who think the roads are built just for their exclusive use. These are the same people who weave in and out of traffic, talk/text on their phones while driving, run red lights, drive way over the speed limit and are just generally selfish idiots on the road.

The second group are people who use their turn signal for every single turn they make! It can be 2am with not a car in sight and they are turning into their driveway (and they live in a cul-de-sac) and they use their turn signal. Or their turn is coming up in a few miles so they turn their signal on 5 minutes ahead of time - just to be sure. Never mind that there are 20 other turns off that road before they get to theirs, they just gotta be ready. This group is normally made up of two groups of people. Group 1 is people over 65 and Group 2 is people I live with and am related to by marriage.

The third group are people who use the turn signal as need and at the proper time but who aren't OCD about it. If there is no car in sight and they are changing lanes on a highway, they don't bother. They have more important things to do with their hands while driving. Like holding their coffee or changing the channel on the radio when David Archuleta or Flo Rida come on.

I don't think I need to tell you what group I fall into :P

I love this one- it is so right on. In group number one you can include the blondes in their tennis skirts in the black lux SUVs on the telephone- the ones who think they are the stars of this traffic reality show and the rest of us are overpaid extras. There are alot of them here in Charlotte.
