I am not invisible!

“I am not invisible!” I screamed into the early morning darkness.

Is she cracking up, you may be asking…has she been neglected, ignored, mistreated??

NO! I am just FED UP with the stupid stupid stupid Kansas drivers! I’m tired of being pulled in front of, cut off, slowed down, and ignored by these idiot drivers.

People say California drivers are bad…those people have OBVIOUSLY never driven in California. At least in California we pay attention to what’s going on around us. Yes, we may cut you off…but we’ll signal first…you'll know we’re coming. Yes, we may pull in front of you…but, we’ll floor the car so you won’t have to slam on your brakes. Yes, we may make sudden and frequent lane changes…but, we’ll signal…and we’ll make sure the gap is at least as big as our vehicle.

Where is that consideration in Kansas??

I have been pulled in front of more times in the last 4 months in Kansas that I had in the previous 15 years of driving in California! It’s no wonder the number of fatal car accidents in Kansas has doubled over the last several years.

Yesterday, I was cruising to work at 6:45 am, down a country road (where, may I add, you could see for MILES), when some woman in a Nissan Sentra sat and WAITED until I was about 50 feet from her, AND THEN she pulled out right in front of me. I had to SLAM on my brakes to keep from hitting her…she didn’t even flinch. This morning, again cruising to work, a Saturn pulls out of a gas station…right in front of me…here I go again, slam on the brakes…this is the time when I shouted to the heavens…”I AM NOT INVISIBLE!”

C'mon people...pay attention...notice how fast and how far away that car is that's bearing down on you. Use your turn signal. Don't talk on your cell if you can't do it and drive WELL at the same time. Pay attention at the stop sign...don't sit for ages, or just pull out - GO WHEN IT IS YOUR TURN!

Ok, I know I am a VERY impatient person, and I know that I think I'm always right...but I really think I am right this time!

Man, I could teach these people a thing or two...


why have my posts sounded so frustrated lately?
