What happens with road rage is that nothing ever gets better..it always gets worse.  The driver and passengers of that car are lucky that they weren't dragged out and beaten or worse.  You have a mob with a mob mentality.  For that car to do what it did, the police weren't handling the situation and protecting the non-protestors.  It never should have got to the point where a driver felt that they had to run into the crowd to get through.

Seems like there's a gang of professional community organizers around the country throwing meat to the mob. Some of the news feeds look like an episode of The Walking Dead.

I absolutely agree with your thought here Jim but am not sure the execution is possible. I mean there are not enough LEOs in the country to maintain order in a population that is hell- bent on chaos. There are certainly reactions and adjustments that can be made but order will only be restored is a sufficient percentage of the population (by far the great majority) wish it to be so. Otherwise the reactions and adjustments will not only be unpleasant but unsuccessful in the long term.

That's one of my motto's....'People are basically stupid.'


 :thumbs:

I might rearrange that motto just a lil though.

Basically, people are stupid.



~ half of the population have an IQ at or below 100. To add to that problem, common sense isn't very common at all.

Drive-Thru's make me crazy and annoyed...lol.

And not the Drive-Thru itself...but the people that line-up in them (too far).

Maybe it's a phenomenon strictly related to the proverbial Canadian coffee shop, but when a drive-thru line-up leaves the parking lot of the establishment, and then blocks intersections and traffic for a couple of city blocks, it makes me crazy...lol.

I counted 27 cars in a coffee shop drive-thru a few weeks ago, and traffic on that street was blocked in both directions.

Meanwhile, the parking lot is empty and there's no customers at the counter inside...lol.

Is this normal behavior? :o

I agree.
It's "normal" stupid behavior.
I've been told I'm not normal. I almost always go inside on the few occasions I visit the "fast food" places. It's almost always faster and I can see what they gave me wrong before I leave instead of when I'm five miles down the road.

Another thing about drive thrus.....
Why don't they put the menu board 10 car lengths back so you/they can decide before getting up to the order window? Some do it, most not. Really slows down the process.
Annoying, which gets me crazy just watching.
This street bike thing is all new to me.
Snowmobiles-I have a bunch of those.

Crazy and annoyed at the server (drive thru) and myself for not checking the bag to make sure all my food is there and correct.  Half the time it isn't.

Liars make me crazy and annoyed.   >:(

I get an e-mail offer from Verizon for a free Galaxy S5. It says FREE today only. No asterisks with fine print attached, a FREE phone.

Ok, I'll bite. I follow the link and get to my account with the phone that I want right there in my cart. Wait, $600?  :o Hey!

I try the online chat, too busy. I breakdown and call them, expecting to be on hold forever and a day. I get right through.

Ok, what about that free phone?

"I'm sorry sir, you're not eligible for a free upgrade at this time"

It says FREE and not a damn thing about upgrading.

"I'm sorry sir, it should say something about being eligible for an upgrade in order to be free"

It doesn't, click.

 >:(
