OMG !!! I hate Holiday Traffic

So I have a few errands to run today, and then meet CJD for lunch b/4 she goes into work. So me and Jesse take care of the errands and then have lunch, and she forgot something, so I had to bring it into her work! At the mall!!! People and cars everywhere,little kids running around the parking lot, old people who cant see over their steering wheel trying to pull out into traffic, SUV's trying to fit into a space fit for a Yugo, tractor-trailers trying to back right up against the loading doors, WTF!!!!! So I go to leave, and head out the usual way just by force of habit..big mistake, TRAFFIC backedup for a good 1/2 mile from the main entrance/exit..so I turn back into the parking lot, and head out another exit! BIGGER mistake, that traffic was backed up to a standstill as well, with nobody being able to decide who should go first...so I turn around and try to head out the last exit, BIGGEST mistake of all. That traffic was completely stopped. While waiting for somebody to let me out,this arse in the lane im trying to merge into, pulls up and stops right in front of me in the intersection yacking on his cell phone, and doesnt even look over to notice im sitting there, with my signal on, trying to get out, Im cursing up a storm, and telling him he's number 1 and he's not even looking over. Finally, 10 minutes passes and I've had enuff, the only way I could get anybody to be even remotely courteous was to stick my nose out into the lane and dare someone take my front end off.

After another 10 minutes in traffic, i finally get out to the highway, and head home.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!

I'm with you there, I had to run out today and it was a mess. Traffic backed up through lights, people blocking interesections. Green arrows where no one can turn, parking lots backed up onto the street.

Well yeah this is true, but it's kinda hard to ride with a 2 year old on the back.

I hate all traffic. Why can't everyone just drive as fast as me. Why must I sit at a traffic light through 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 lights before going because numnuts doesn't know the light is green and goes when it is yellow - THE GAS IS ON THE RIGHT JACKA$$!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is OK to go the speed limit. It is ok to proceed immediately upon a green light. It is OK to increase speed onto the freeway. It is OK to NOT come to a complete stop on a turn on a green light. I am done with it. I am buying a 1976 Impala and filling the doors and bumpers with concrete - go ahead CUT ME OFF - I DARE YOU PUNK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

.... doctor I think MP needs more morphine - he is piping up again...

Same here, the car seat and wife won't both fit on the back. Plus it was raining.

I know... no excuses!
