It appears that it is Drive Like Ray Charles day in my city.
In a simple fifteen minute drive, I was nearly sideswiped by some kid who fashioned himself to be a billy badass and thought I wasn't turning fast enough at a three way turn, nearly smashed between a school bus and a big truck, nearly clipped the rear end of a trailer because the idiot driving didn't pull fully into the turning lane, honked at by some asshole riding my bumper when there was an entire empty lane next to us where he could clearly pass, almost hit again by the truck riding my ass after a paint truck in front of me didn't have break lights on their trailer, and then nearly hit by a small Chevy in the turning lane going to my house because I apparently wasn't going fast enough for his taste.
All of that in the less than four mile drive from my mother's school and back to my home.
What pisses me off the most is half of that happened in a school zone. A fucking school zone.
I would have expected this when I lived in a larger city, not in this town of less than 70,000 people.
It doesn't help that I'm PMSing like hell and don't want to deal with any sort of crap today. I'm not in any mood for any sort of dumbass behind the wheel of a vehicle that they don't fully know how to control.
This is on top of seeing articles about a friend that passed away recently. The articles aren't bad - it's the comments on the articles that make me want to choke someone. You didn't know him, have some fucking decency. My boyfriend and I knew him, and no, we won't talk about it. End of story.
I'm done with this post for now. All I have wanted to do for the last few days is rip heads off of people.
