who said anything about speeding past you. if your going 45 on a 2 lane,
and the speed limit is 65 and i come up behind you , because i choose to want to do the speed limit and you don't , what would you do? I'm not impatient, nor in a hurry, the limit is 65, law or no law, i suppose from your
remark that you would just drive along at 45 with no consideration of
anyone around you. People don't have to be reckless or impatient because
they choose to do the speed limit. It may not be a written law, like I said
pure common courtesy. I am not saying to pull over totally especially
if there isn't a shoulder, I would be conscious of the one behind me, and when the next straightaway came on a 2 lane, I would slow down a bit more and wave them on, saying there is no one coming and I'm slowing down
more so you can pass me! Are you saying you wouldn't do any of that ?
If not than you are the type person this whole thread is talking about!
Like there might be a chip on your shoulder, and you actually enjoy
making people mad! No offense please, it is just your attitude in the quote
above that I sensed!
Just the other day I was on a country backroad, curves, hills, with quite a
bit of traffic (2 lane, no shoulder) I recieved a phone call, and I don't really
like to talk and drive, I also noticed in my rv mirror, a woman approaching
me and was doing the speed limit, well I know what it feels like to be behind
someone on the phone going slower than I would care to go and never acknowlodging my presence so I considered her and I slowed down and when it was possible to pull off on the side of the road I did, I didn't totally pull
all the way off and stop though, just about, she wouldn't go around me, she kept very close to my back side, and wouldn't pass. I started waving as if to tell her it's ok go ahead and go around, she still didn't! to me when someone acts like that, choosing to tailgate close, (when i did everything but get out and give her an invitation to go on) i kept waving...'go around" the rode was clear no one coming, that is someone that just wants to cause trouble, I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT, and needless to say I turned my body to the left looking back at her, then she finally went by me!
I swear, if I had an army tank.................. to me and it may just be me, but
she is a shi_ starter. I still can't get over that, middle aged woman. I can drive fast, and be in a hurry. But I pay attention, and have a lot of consideration for others. I expect the same! No attitude, just do what you got to do for life to go a little nicer! It may not be a law but where are your manners? If you choose to drive under the speed limit, then by gosh, be
aware of everyone around you , and get out of the way, not kill yourself
just do what you should do! I have had people going slow infront of me,
and when i go to pass, they freakin speed up! I really wonder how much
an army tank costs???? ha ha It's people with an attitude that seem to
get to me the most!
