Pet peeves

So, the other day I'm turning right at a red light. This intersection has a wide shoulder, so it is the norm to pull onto the shoulder and out of the lanes going straight to make the right turn after stopping and checking that it is clear. So, I do this. Apparently, there was a car in the lane who wanted to turn right and was waiting in the lane to go straight and took great offense to my audacity at turning right before them. *shrug* So, when the light to go straight turned green, she whipped through the intersection and got right on my bumper. She stayed there and at the next light, whips around me and shoots me the finger. No. 1, I really don't like that. I might cuss like a sailor, but shooting the bird is just really juvenile and trashy, IMHO, especially when you're doing it in front of children (which mine were in the car). But, to make it even more heinous, the gal had one of those religious fish symbols on the back of her car. Way to go lady. You just made all Christians look like giant douchebag hypocrites.

Also, just a tip to both genders - it is NOT appealing to smell your cologne/perfume from 30 feet away. It is almost as offensive as smelling B.O. It is. Trust me. When your aroma is so strong that my eyes water, it is not sexy. It is gross. Sort of like that one commercial with the hot chick in it - it is sexy when I can smell you while giving you a hug. Not so sexy when it is overpowering.

    It might be the norm but it is not legal to drive on the shoulder.

    Yep, won't argue with that. A ticket from a cop, I could understand. Some stupid woman with the religious symbol tailgating me (also not legal) and then flipping me the bird ... not cool.
