Is It Too Damn Much To Ask For A Wave???

You know the drill, you see the signal, you hold back and give some space, you motion to come over, they do and then they wave to show their appreciation. THIS woman NEEDED to get over or she was going to start a bit of a traffic jam on the street. So, I saw her signal, I held back and gave her room, I stuck my hand OUT the window to motion her over, she moved over...WAIT! AH, HELL NO!!! You know, I didn't HAVE to let her in, but I did. People were bringin' it from behind us and there's no tellin' how long she may have sat there and risked a rear ender accident, which I see almost every damn time I go to Springfield. Know this, that this was the second time this happened to me today. I'm seeing a growing trend of traffic entitlement lately, while this only happened to me twice today, it does happen a lot on other days and today, it just happened to rub me the wrong way.

For those of you(like me) who go out of there way to make sure the wave is seen beyond a shadow of a doubt, I thank you and please keep doing it, maybe, just maybe these dip shits MIGHT get the hint. It doesn't take THAT much effort to be a courteous driver.

If anyone sees this woman out there, let her know that she wasn't "entitled" to the spot in front of me. Also, waving is a good thing and it doesn't cost anything but a very small amount of time and minimal effort. Now to those of you who didn't know or didn't "understand the concept", you better ask somebody.

No good deed goes unpunished. Some people are just insensitive, uncaring, ignorant and/or just rude. But you were the nice one and it will come back to you - karma my friend.

Entitlement seems to be the overwhelming attitude in general these days, not just in traffic.

Yesterday I was in 2 lanes of bumper to bumper traffic that was moving right at the speed limit. I had a tow truck driver inches off my bumper waving his arms at me furiously for no reason. I think I was going too slow for him. Problem is, I was going as fast as the 6 million cars in front of me would allow. I have no idea what this fucker thought I could do to change that. He caught me once looking in my side view mirror and flipped me off! What the fuck is up with that? It's not like was picking my nose in the left lane and holding up traffic.

People suck.
