observations while driving (and not)....

i'm sure i'm not the only one who totally people watches while driving....

tonight, while driving over to my mom and pat's, i observed some things....
and they are the following:

- people really don't like using their blinkers, and when they do, they are already changing lanes, so, um, you already kind of know that they planned on getting into your lane.... you know, since they are already HALF WAY OVER!!!!

- this new law passed here in california that you can't talk on your cell phone... you know, the whole "hands free" thing?? well apparently people don't get the concept that hands free, means that your hands are free from holding a cell phone.... as i saw countless people holding their phones in front of their faces, as if to have the people on speakerphone.... i wonder if they realize that this is still not hands free....

- picking your nose and driving must go hand in hand.... do people know that driving does not make you invisible? just because you are in your car by yourself does not mean that people cannot see you when you are at a red light, clearly scratching your brain via your nose....

- men are perverts.... at a red light, i could see the guy's left hand. it had a gold band around his ring finger.... yet, when the girl started running across the street, his head turned and his eyes followed her as she crossed.... apparently this led him to miss seeing that the light turned green.... green means go.... the car behind him honked.... which then led me to wonder what he was thinking at that moment....
maybe he was thinking,
"i wonder what's on her ipod?"
or
"why is her hair down and not in a ponytail? isn't she hot? maybe she lost her hair-tie."
or maybe,
"did she look at herself before she left the house?"
but i bet it was something more like,
"my wife is waaaay hotter than she is....."
or
"hubba hubba!"
which leads me back to my original statement.....
men are perverts.

- there are a lot of people who are hard of hearing.... because their music was loud enough for me to dance to with my windows rolled up.... which MUST mean only one thing.... they are hard of hearing....

- men who drive corvettes are normally complete idiots! either that or they are right smack dab in the middle of their mid-life crisis or three-quarter life crisis.... anyone who deems it necessary to give a thumbs-up to a fellow corvette driver is not worthy of dating.... take my word for it.... (i'll expand on this one later)

- i don't check my gas tank as often as i should.... i need to get gas.... and lewie needs diapers.... he has like 2 left. i'm not sure he's ever been so low. how did i not realize that sooner? and why was i driving when i realized this?

on an entirely different note.... GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!!

They have three more chances.... Can they win two more?

I'm sure the guy was just wondering where he could get his wife the same outfit.... Good quality jogging outfits are hard to find these days....

Loud, ear-splitting music... GRRRRR!

Oh, so it's not just a Pennsylvania thing, where people don't use their signals? Whenever that happens around here, my hubby always mutters, "Wow - check it out - late model BMW's (or whatever) don't come with signals anymore"

The other thing that is rampant around here....trying to get through a red light quickly before the traffic with the green realizes it's their go. Can't count how many accidents I've seen because of THAT little trick.

Oh, honey! That blinker thing drives me crazy. And people who drive too fast in small neighborhoods. I have asked the CHP for a mini spike strip to take care of this problem. Is that too much to ask for?

Copyboy said...

Wow!!! We TRULY are in blog sync. See I'm from NYC. So I totally miss the car creepy guy culture. Unless of course I'm in a cab. GO CELTICS!!!!

Alright--I finally found my way over here so I can bug you even more!
Aahhaaahhahahahhahhaaa!!!!!

John

In SC we don't even have taillights--let alone blinkers! That is very rude driving though.....and the Bluehairs..(can I say that and be PC ?), are NOT the worst offenders because they are like Nascar drivers and always circle left, like Buzzards.

What has that got to do with ANYTHING?????

Ashley King said...

ABAO, haHAAAAA!!!! i bet that's EXACTLY what he was thinking!!!

Ms. A, i bet you LOVE loud music. ;) where have you been missy??

Marlene, I can't believe people actually DO that!!! i am hesitant and still look both ways before going on a green line, because i don't want to be T-boned!

BB, i hope you get the spike strip! it's CLEARLY not too much to ask.... and if they decline, you can MAKE YOUR OWN!!!! just turn a bunch of nails upside down on some heavy duty tape or something, but make sure the camcorder's running when you do!!! =)

CB, we're TOTALLY in sync. we're so n'sync, we should dance with chairs and sing gay songs together.

John, YAY! i'm glad you found me over here!!! lol. but i really am glad you found your way over!!! this one USUALLY has a lot more going on than my icky past. =) welcome! you do crack me up with all your randomness!!!

funny list of observations.

did they really just pass that phone law in CA? we've had it here for a while now. nobody really follows it, but boy if they stop you, ouch $250 or something for texting or talking!

ugh, that pervert is typical and annoying.

funny about the gas tank. i'm actually obsessed with the idea of one day running out of gas, so i rarely drive with less than half a tank. nuts right?
