    Thought I would start a thread on a massive recall of folks that drive like my dead uncle harry.

    Love it when people tale gate you and the pass you in the right lane and weave in front of you or the next car and get nowhere except two car lengths. Then you pass them and wave later on.

    I am in the left lane with two car lengths spacing for a reason. I am turning left at the next major intersection.

    Did noticed for the 100th time the wide disparity with fill ups at different pumps and stations.

    Metal plate on my right foot is doing good. Now for the left foot. ARGH!

    Only problem: what constitutes a bad driver will vary wildy... It's very akin to Einstein's relativity theorems: things look a certain way from your perspective, virtually inverted from others. One camp will use terms like "driving like a grandma", "moving road block", "keeping up with traffic", "cut me off". The other will use expressions like "obey speed limits", "maintain safe following distance", "obey traffic signs".

    Guess I'm showing my stripes, lol.

    I'd rather drive safe and within speed limits than like a speeding, out of control maniac. Guess which one gets into an accident first and who's fault it is.

    Which country are you in (says kitchen) - the story about left/right lanes and turns are a bit ambiguous?

    I guess the kitchen may be a different mater. But with a meat clever folks get out of my way. So can you tell by the picture if the chef is left or right handed?
    Just drink a glass of wine and none of this maters.

    Still a nice piano BTW.

    Can't wait for self driving cars to automate this chaos.

    My problem is red lights right when the change. I have to stop cheating.

    Me too. Self-driving cars will start to reduce the number of bad drivers on the road. But my fear is that we are still at least a decade if not two away from fully autonomous cars. At least Congress has time to come up with laws regarding autonomous cars.
