Why can't people just get out of my way?
I drive on a 2 lane parkway every morning to work and maybe I drive a little faster than most. What pisses me off is the people that ride the left lane and 10 mph slower than Im going, have plenty of room to move to the right and choose not to, forcing me to pass on the right or ride their bumpers. Case in point, some loser today in a beat up Honda Civic, with the cut stock springs to lower it within rubbing distance, is riding the left lane with no one in the right. So, I go to pass him on the right, at which point he speeds up. Now, Im not about to race a Honda Civic short of an SI (which I'll spank anyway) especially during rush hour on a road with limited visibility. So, I dont speed up but I dont slow down either. He's obviously pissed that Im trying to pass him or just needs to prove his car is the shit. He's a bumper length ahead of me when all of a sudden the road curves on the first incline, I hear rubbing, he's three car lengths back. He then trys to catch up again and I still dont increase speed. He gets within a car length of me when we hit the next curve, sharper and more incline than the last and this sends him too far back that I can no longer see him. Was I racing? No. Just pointing out that this moron would rather tear up his tires with his non-rolled-fenders havin dropped-on-shitty-suspension car or worse, hit the guard rail, than let me pass him.
Left lane = passing lane so GTFO of my way already!!!
