Seems like people tend to ignore anything with two wheels. As a motorcyclist, I get to see a lot of it. Hell, my husband was hit this summer by some jackass speeding and running a stop sign (How I would like to hobble that kid..... ).

So we've come up with our pet peeves list... which includes the Turn-#4 Indy stop. That's where they wait until about five feet before the stop sign to break (while travelling WAY too fast for the location), and start to whip around the corner as though they're not going to stop at all, and then stop, with one corner of their vehicle in the intersection. And they have the nerve to look at YOU funny when you honk or otherwise indicate your lack of appreciation for said "stop".

But Tuesday... oy, there was a lady in a shopping center parking lot who pulled out right in front of us - and she LOOKED! - only to get to a bank that was a zig zag over from her prior position. there was nobody behind us.

But favorite... when we were bringing his new bike home, we were in that same shopping center parking lot (our favorite coffee house is located there), and this person (I thought it was an old man, but no, hubby said it was a woman) in a red pick up watches him approach, waits for him to pass, then pulls out... right in front of me. and I was not far behind my husband. Lady got the horn (after which she waves at me in the 'hehehe, ooops" manner) and the finger and some seriously rude gesturing on my part, that earned a look of shock and dismay.

Some folks just shouldn't be allowed to drive. At all. Controlling a vehicle that frequently weighs 700 pounds or more should require some proof of mental aptitude.

Aw, dang it... I got started.
