Some people have cut me off intentionally. They have a moment to think about it, and decide, "Screw that guy, I'm going". One guy didn't stop at the line at a cross-street red light. He looked, saw me coming, then kept coming out. He just let his nose hang out there, playing like he didn't know anything was wrong. It's like they see a nice older Mercedes and want to smash it to make it as shitty as their car.

Different scenario, but what the hell is wrong with people today?

Everyone is either a moron for going so slow or an idiot for driving so fast!

A Sienfeld joke paraphrased....but really, these are not good stories, it's like the edges of what we know are fraying....and quickly at that.

People who have never driven a Benz will never know true engineering and road safety. They ride around in these little light weight pieces of crap and think they can drive. When I get home after leaving the office, I stay in my house until all the rush hour maniacs are off the road before I come back out to go somewhere. I've noticed now too that I take different routes off the normal main streets to get home. I can take my time and drive safe without some idiot trying to tail gate me to go faster. It's really sad how drivers don't realize that driving is a very dangerous daily task that we all must do. Just remember to always keep your cool and try to deal with those nutts out there.

Just think...IT'S PROBABLY GONNA GET A LOT WORSE!!!

If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Actually, it was originally a George Carlin bit.

You are most likely right, but I heard that sneaky Sienfeld character using it in reference to 80 year olds driving in Florida (Boca Ratan I think). I remember Carlin more for 4 letter words!
