[rant on] My biggest pet peeves on the planet is :censor: tailgaters. What's up with that anyway? I can't drive anywhere these days (even in my own little sub-development!) without seeing someone glaring back at me in my rear view mirror! I'm not one of these people that drive 30 in a 45MPH zone in the "fast" lane. I usually drive the posted speed limit and typically no more than 5-6 mph over that. Everywhere I go, I get tailgated: two lane 35MPH city streets, 65MPH interstate highways, you name. I'm beginning to think today's drivers think "Speed Limit" means "Speed MINIMUM". Overlooking that it's a) illegal, b) dangerous and c) just plain stupid, the message that comes across is "Get out of my way, I'm more important than you! My life is more important!!" My reaction to that is "Sorry, I didn't get your intinerary. So sorry I didn't bow down to you." So bottom line, it's just plain RUDE!! For the record I do NOT tailgate. I don't even follow the "2 second rule" since I usually have someone on my rear bumper. I usually up it to the "3 second rule" so if/when I get slammed from behind, I'll have time to stop and not hit the person in front of me. Or as my dear old Dad says: "Why is everyone in such a :censor: hurry???!!" [rant off] Phew! That felt GOOOOD!
