Common sense, people ...

I'm a vocal driver. My poor passengers are subject to all sorts of editorial comments about irresponsible drivers, but I just can't help it. Some people are begging for a good lesson in proper driving, and oh how I'd love to be the one to teach it.

Driving slow in the fast lane is one of my biggest pet peeves. But lately, another biggie has come into play ... I nearly got run into a guard rail yesterday by a woman in a brand new Mercedes who was talking on her cell phone and smoking a cigarette at the same time.

Good Lord, woman! You're operating a vehicle that expensive and weaving in and out of lanes so you can talk on your cell and inhale smoke? She had no idea she had almost hit me, and when i finally got past her and saw what she was doing I had to hold myself back.

It's times like these that I'd love to have ready-made signs in my car that I could hold up to let the idiot driver next to me know exactly what I think of them. Hmmm ... that's a thought.
