An Early Power Down Moment

So I'm at a stop sign this morning with a car beside me going in the same direction. It pulls out a little too quickly not realizing that a car traveling left to right in front of us had the right of way. No big deal. The car that had the right of way probably had to slow down for two seconds (if that long) to make sure there was no collision. The car beside me hit its brakes (softly and safely) immediately upon realizing the mistake. All's good. Let's go take on the day. Then the car that had been delayed ever so slightly passed by in front of us with the rear passenger flashing the angriest obscene gesture I've seen in a while. And not just with one finger. He did the unfake double handed gesture for emphasis. Sheesh. At that moment I had the life force sucked out of me. And it was before 7:00 a.m. in the morning.

Never allow the haters to get you down. The minute a hater impacts your life is the moment they win. Just imagine how much it MUST suck for the finger flipping hater to have to endure THEIR crap life and be grateful for your WONDERFUL life.

Was the person in the car beside you talking on a cell phone. If so, he or she deserves society's disdain. Instead of just having laws for DWI or DWLS, we should have a law against DWDOT (driving while doing other things), which should include, but not be limited to: talking on a phone, putting on makeup, reading the newpaper (or anything else), watching TV, hitting your children, or any other activity that takes your mind off of the fact that you are driving a 3000 pound deadly weapon on the road, and the rest of us are your potential victims.

THere's a book or article out recently about the way people drive. It gave the example of the people who don't merge until the last possible moment, passing cars who have already politely merged. THose same people change lanes all the time trying to get ahead. THe article said it usually saves them about 4 minutes a trip.

Heres the karma part - The stress that it causes that driver to be aggressive and rude causes him to shorten his life by more than that 4 minutes.

Feel better now about being a polite driver?

Indeed, we have become a very impatient and unforgiving society.

Now hold on there, Mr. crud. You make some valid points about the dangers of driving while distracted, but inflicting pain on your kids while you're driving is a time honored American tradition. Many times I acted up in the back seat only to discover that my dad's arm had the ability to extend several feet longer than normal. And I can't count the number of times my mom flailed blindly with a flyswatter, trying to connect with a bare leg.
I'll bet that even the early American settlers traversing this great nation in their covered wagons issued the threat of "Don't make me come back there!" after the trillionth query of "Are we there yet? And by the way, where exactly is 'there'"?
What I'm saying is that driving and smacking your kids upside the head go together like...well, like two other things that go together really well.

Double Fake Corporal Punishment:

If you had also described a blinding cloud of Winston cigarette smoke present in the car, I would know that you are my long lost brother.

Good times, good times.

3:10 Clouds of smoke were a given if you rode with my old man back in the day. I'll bet a coal miner's got nuthin on the black lung I contracted from that

Good times, indeed

I had a guy RUN ME OFF THE HIGHWAY... I was half on the shoulder and grass.... got control and moved back into the lane. HONKED at the guy (who was now in front of me) and HE FLIPPED ME OFF!! Runs me off the road then FLIPS ME OFF!!! You know that expression... my blood boiled? Well.. I swear there was smoke coming from my ears and if flames could have shot from my eyes...
People are real asses sometimes!

When people ignore the rules of the road and put my life in danger, giving the finger seems a pretty dang mild response. Someone pulls out or blows through a light becase texting or talking on the phone is more important than not killing some people, I'm dead. You're dead. Your kids are dead. If I walked up to somebody and fired off a 12 gauge 6 inches from their face, but nothing touches them, wouldn't you think I should get more than a middle finger? Well, a two ton vehicle can do as much damage when carelessly applied.

OBVIOUSLY, you are the one whose life soooo sucks you are all about a woman, on the Interweb, whom you do NOT know. I bet hating me does NOT keep your mind off your miserable existence.

Just know that I just got finished swimming laps in my FABULOUS pool and will more than likely do some Internet shopping later today to decide what type and colors of skis and ski boots I am getting this season. Oh, as for gas prices, I could PERSONALLY care less if they are $9.00 or $15.00 a gallon because it does not make a difference to my lifestyle. Yep! It really bothers me that some loser like you hates me...*LOL*

Thank you for letting me know, by just being me, I still have what it takes to get under the skin of another feces flinging moron.

*StillLOL@U*

You HATERS are soooo much fun.

You are such a shallow person, Mzchief! You know, anyone on the internet can "be" whatever they conjure with the written word. You have some real issues! God knows, you better enjoy what you say you have because, as I put in another post under the Wise Co. pic, when you leave this earth, you cannot take it with you. When you stand in front of your Maker, your soul will look the same as the very poor man's. You have to be the most arrogant bitch ever!(btw: a real woman understands that being called a bitch is NOT a compliment!) You don't get under my skin, you are just appalling to the point that sensible people must finally comment on your rudeness. I enjoy blasting you! I certainly don't think about your shallow self during my work day or any other time than when I get online here and see your impolite attacks and pompous self-lifting BS. I have FUN bantering with you because you always come back with the same "I'm so rich and you're all so ignorant and poor" blabberings. You say how you "play" with the "morons" here, well, here's a bit of news for you: YOU'RE the only moronic, shallow-minded, predator on this blog. I enjoy my play time with you here. It makes my day! hahaa! Come on back now....come on back with your same BS so we can all have another big LAUGH AT you as we watch you try to make yourself something you just wish you were! Unfortunately, you're simply a LOSER. Ta-ta!

Come on Mzchit the games over,it's time you admit that you live in a trailer on Hovey street in Chico and that pool you talk about is a 1975 Ford F150 on blocks with a plastic tarp in the bed filled with water.

Such are the dreams of the every day housewife.

Oh yeah,Walmarts has hollow points on sale,go get'em do it! do it now!!!

Perhaps, you would be better served by rereading your petty hateful comments to me and realize you truly need to be more concerned for YOUR SOUL than you claim to be for mine.

Jealousy is a disease and one of Christianity's deadly sins, thus YOU are in desperate need of a double dose of a cure for YOUR seemingly terminal case.

Keep in mind, people like you are so meaningless in my life that I RARELY comment on the opinions of others on The Blog unless they FIRST attack or address me. You being the pathetic excuse for a human that you are, seemingly, are incapable of not attacking me. Being called a "bitch" by someone as insignificant as you has no meaning or impact in my life. Though you, clearly, think much of me, you are of no value in my life. You have such little regard for yourself and so lack the conviction of your comments you have not seen fit to acquire an alias under which to consistently comment. You are so very shallow and boringly transparent.


SUCKS TO BE YOU!

Oh, I never waste my time worrying about the eternal souls of people like you. I realize, your life has sucked so much, surely, if there is a loving God, your afterlife could be no worse than your present existence. Incidentally, thank you for letting me know you care so much about me.

*LOL@U*


Bring on your next snappy retort but realize, I am done with you for today, loser.

You have managed to describe situations and locations of which I have NO knowledge. It sounds like you have quite a bit of personal experience with pick up with water filled tarps in the beds. As for shopping at Wal-Mart...I do not and will not EVER shop at Wal-Mart. I purchase the hollow points for my 9mm Glock G19C at Bridgeport Guns and Ammo.

LOL!! If I am of NO IMPORTANCE to you, I find it hysterically strange that you MUST have a response. You think I am JEALOUS of you?? hahaa...what a laugh! YOU have no idea who I am, what I have. I can tell you this....your piddly little "fortune" you claim to have would be nothing but pocket change for me!!! Your problem is that it SUCKS TO BE YOU so you try...and I say you TRY to be of some importance in your own little itty bitty mind. You aren't "through" with me! You're boiling...oozing with "how dare you's"....and deciding I am tooooo much for you and your lies! So, you exit....time and time again. I laugh each time. So does my spouse who also happens to be HAWT! You sling the same BS everytime. You are boring... You are shallow...and you are a liar! Come on back now, punk. Make my day! hahahaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

11:30 - You're the one chasing after Mzchief and can't seem to leave her alone. You sound too jealous to live anywhere but a trailer with a pot bellied broke down old man. I'm not buying your bullshit for a minute. I'm sure you'll have some dumb ass thing to say back at me but all I have to say to you is STFU bitch.

5:10, you'd be Mzchief in "anonymous" mode. LOL! What makes you think I am of the female gender, huh, sucker?

Anonymous said...

5:49 - As much bitching as you do I figured you had to be a woman. I didn't know a man could be as big a bitch as you. You're probably still doing it with a pot bellied broke down old man. If you really think I'm Mzchief then you're a bigger dumb ass then I first pegged you for.
