Vehicle Related Irks
When people drive with their dog on their lap.
Never, ever, in any situation is this an acceptable thing to do. They’re in your line of sight, they’re standing in front of the wheel, they’re hanging out the window, they’re moving around. Honestly, what kind of douche actually thinks this is okay?
Taking your pet for a little ride in your vehicle is one thing, if they’re on the other side of the car, or even in a carrier, fine. But crawling over you while you’re in control of a ton of metal moving at high speeds? Hells no.
First off, your pet could get hurt. Second, you could get hurt. Third, if you’ve got someone else in your car, do you really want Fluffy to be the reason your passenger is decapitated after a car accident? Loose objects in a vehicle become dangerous in an accident.
People that don’t buckle their kids in.
If you can’t take the time to buckle your kid in properly whether you’re going a block away or across the country, you don’t deserve children. I pray you never have to live through losing a child because of something so ridiculous.
People that insist on showing off the power or speed of their vehicle by driving like a moron.
We get it, you have a nice car. It’s shiny, fast, powerful – and you probably paid half a year’s wages too much for it. Oh, and psst! Everyone knows when you’ve gotten a particular car to compensate for something else, it’s not a secret.
So why, when it’s raining, do you have to speed and fishtail down the busiest street in the city? Why do you have to roar past everyone when there is black ice on the road? In the summer, why do you have to pull up next to people at a red light and rev your engine like you want to race? Newsflash: No one cares about your car but you. And in fact, if people have an opinion at all, it’s probably “Holy mama, that’s a hot truck/car/suv/scooter, but what a jackass behind the wheel!”
Cranky post, but honestly, I'm in a great mood! Happy weekend!
