The making of a new drivers handbook.


I tend to be a fairly patient person these days. Maybe I've just gotten older, and mellowed. Maybe I've gotten better at ignoring things that bother me, and don't let things I can't change frustrate my day. The one glaring hole to this is driving.

I'm by no means a road rager. I don't yell and scream at people. When i get the brake checkers or the tailgaters, my response is always the same. I just smile, and keep on driving. Ok, sometimes I wave at them, just to show them they haven't had the desired effect of pissing me off. And to be honest, cause I know it bugs the hell out of them.

But some drivers do frustrate me, and I have been known to "talk" to them, like they can hear me. I like to think of it as encouraging them!! Like the one who almost stops on a busy road, to turn into a parking lot. I'll encourage him with a, "That's it. You can do it. Just turn the wheel,now hit the gas pedal". I'm sure if they could hear me, they'd thank me for the words of support.

I have, over the years, come to "classify" some of the drivers. Those which, in my eyes, have a deficiency in skills. I could be wrong, it happens more than I like, but it is just my opinion on what I observe. Here's some of my classifications.

The Narcissist.

This is the driver, that believes all that matters is them. That everyone else on the road is inconsequential. All that matters is that he get from point A, to point B. You can spot this driver usually in the left hand lane on the highway, going slower than everyone else. He had room to move over multiple times, but why? If you don't like the way he's driving, go around. Even after 15 cars have had to pass him on the right, he's still there in the left lane. Why move over and let the others on past? You would think he'd notice this, but honestly, I don't think he's even thought about it. After all, it really is just all about him, right?

The Phone Operator.

Even though it is illegal to talk on the phone while your driving around here, that doesn't stop this rogue. He's usually the one doing 10 miles under the speed limit up in front of you. You can't figure out why, till you move over to pass him, and see the phone stuck to his head. Now maybe. Just maybe, he can be excused. It's possible that some people have a direct link to a phone pressed against their ear, that affects the amount of pressure one can exert with the right foot. I'm not a doctor, and haven't actually researched this. But I also don't know for sure it's not a real malady. But somethings made them slow down. I would hate to think they can't maintain a speed and talk at the same time.

The Last Minute Lane Changer.

This one has multiple characteristics. It can be like one I saw today, who almost hit me and two other cars. He's in a two lane exit coming off the high way, when at the last minute decides, nope. Jerks across the lanes of the exit, into the right hand lane of the highway. But hey, he had inches to spare, so it's all good.

Or the one who ignores the right lane closed signs for the last mile, thinking I'll just wait and move over at the last minute. Even though everyone else moved over, we all wait as he, or at times they, fit in at the last minute.

These are just some of my names for different types of drivers. I'm sure I'm missing many. I'd be willing to bet there are some that might have a name for me. I can think of a couple of times people yelling something at me while I was driving. I just couldn't hear, cause my stereo is usually blaring out some music. I just smile and wave. People are so friendly.

Are you a patient driver? If you fit one of my "characteristics", I'd say I'm sorry, but I try to be honest.

Is there a type you'd like to add? Maybe we'll write a new drivers handbook with the idea's.

I could, and probably should, categorize myself as the,

The description is easy. Always at least 10 miles over the speed limit.

You've been to this city? Wow That pretty much nails it. Of course, you might have included the F1 driver who thinks the roads should be made clear so that he can get it up 100 mph between lights. 😬 I'm pretty chill... until I'm not and then I have to repeat the mantra... "No Matter What, This Is Better Than The Bus.." .(so shut up Paul...)... Works..a bit! 🚯🚱🚷 That plus a sound system that scares the traffic out of my way! πŸ”Š

Great blog and I totally agree with you here, I am guilty of talking smack to drivers that annoy me as well. The one that really gets on my last nerve as it did my grandfather too is those damn drivers THAT WAIT TIL THEY GET WHERE THEY ARE TURNING AND TURN ON THEIR DAMN TURN SIGNAL : !!!!

These people I just want to smack them so badly as the rules of the road are is you have to turn on your signal 100 yards before your turning. I always let people behind me know when I am turning and not at the last damn minute!!

Thanks for the great read as it was so spot on, and I hope the rest of your day is a good one..

Just your average every day run of the mill nana here!!!

I couldn't help but laugh at this - because your experience in daily driving is the total opposite of mine - and I rarely encounter the things you mention until I am driving in a "Big City". And then, I just take "meathead drivers" for granted.

Here, where it takes no more than 10 minutes to get from one end of town to the other, the busiest streets have 2 lanes going each way, and the biggest issue is people constantly switching lanes, to gain 1 second on you before the next traffic light. The majority of the bad drivers are teenagers, but that may be because they get their jollies from "cruising" the 2 main drags in town.

The longest "drag" in town is the major highway that goes through the middle of it, and from one end to the other, I think there are only 4 stoplights.

And, driving around here - in the boonies, I get all excited when you actually find 2 lanes, side by side, because the ONLY reason for that is to create a "passing lane". I have to drive almost 4 hours to hit my 1st freeway, approaching Coeur d'Alene Idaho, or 5 hours, if I go NorthEast, to Calgary, Alberta.

Other than that, the driving around here, both in town and out, is "easy peasy". Even if you do hit heavy traffic, as you approach some of the mountain resort towns, it is usually always coming towards ME, from Alberta to BC.

Check out my profile or and become a "watcher" of my blog FMAOPLS,to learn more about me, and for intelligent, lively, smartassy and fun discussion, with a little irreverence thrown in. "Like" or comment on my photos, and I promise I'll add more. Thanks.

LOL, Yeah I'd like to believe it's just this part of the world, but it's a pretty universal thing.

I like the F1 driver characterization have to put that in the manual. I'm usually driving fast, but not like the constant lane changing, speeding up, slamming on the brakes, trying to use the aerodynamics of the car in front of you to whip the car in front of you kind of guy. Just to get to the next light, 1/2 a mile up the road.

I wonder if all of us who comment on other people's driving could pass our driving tests if we had to do it again.

I have to go to driver training for work sometimes in simulator some times on a track, skid school etc. When we first started having to do this I can tell you I realized I was not the savvy driver I thought I was, I had developed some bad habits.

By the way that was me who almost stopped turning into the parking lot... sorry, politely waves

I am the speaker of the Seven Dirty Words, ala the late George Carlin, often strung together into one continuous phrase, aimed at the drivers who piss me off on a daily basis.

Of note, I mastered my use of that chain of words when traveling cross-country as a truck driver with my late husband. He and another driver of ours, when traveling together, frequently shut down the offending 4-wheeler by manipulating them in between the two semis on crowded highways. WIth nowhere to go, all of the categories of driver you mention in your blog were suddenly reduced to quivering minions just hoping for a chance to get the hell off the road as soon as possible, lol!

Yeah, I would be the Constant Speedertoo. If I'm not at least 5 - 10 over the limit I'm too slow.

I've found I can characterize most drivers by the car they're in. Prius drivers are going to be slow in every move they make so they're easy to get around or pass. Mini van drivers generally are similar - but aren't paying attention to the road.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Oh, hell yeah the blinker thing is just silly. I mean if you're waiting till the last second anyway, why not just join the ones that never use the blinker in the first place. You're not helping anyone. LOL

hahaha, you'r comment made me think of when I go visit my oldest daughter in North Arkansas. Bunch of little towns connected by one "state highway". We were heading into the "big town" of Mountain home one time, noticed there were at least 10 vehicles I could see in front of us. I said wow, that's like the most cars I've seen on this road. She said, "Duh dad, it's rush hour".

That's a really good question. I've always thought everyone should have to retake the driving test at least every 10 years. Just cause you passed the test at 16 doesn't mean you remember any of it at 40. I've held a operators, a chauffeur , commercial and motorcycle license. I've taken quite a few. LOL

So that was you turning in? I hope my words of encouragement helped.

I always loved Carlin...and his Seven Dirty Words is a classic. LOL

Well I'm a driving instructor, and what you're saying here sounds very familiar those types of drivers usually frustrate me and I have another type as well.
The kind of driver who does anything and everything to get passed a learner when they see one no matter what the cost. They even do this when my students are driving at a decent speed or occasionally when I'm teaching learners with a lot of road experience who've just not passed the test. Im not above having a good remedial cuss/rant when I see them.

I had to laugh at the Prius driver....sorry all you wonderful bloggers who may drive a Prius. My ex's husband drives a Prius and he's always 5 miles under the speed limit.

I have NOT become more patient as I aged. Driving in Dublin is a nightmare...our roads are like car parks at times....most of the time. Around 20 years ago someone in power put in an order for traffic lights and I am certain they got the decimal point in the wrong place.....as a result there are traffic lights everywhere and they aren't in sync. I think my grandkids learned their frst swear words from being in the car with me!!

Now there's some great input. I bet you see it all.

Actually, I've noticed the trying to get around the "student driver" car. I always wonder if they just think the student has no idea how to drive at all, and may just randomly crash into them. LOL.

Man, those out of sync traffic lights drive me crazy. Especially when there are a bunch of them in a short run. And with my luck, I catch every damn one of them red.

I'm sorry to say my youngest daughter, has picked up on my habits in the truck. She talks to them too.

I see some toe curling stuff on a daily basis, lol. Just the other day a BTW came screaming up the inside of one of my students and undertook him on the left (illegal here in England) squeezing between us and a cyclist missing us both by less than .5 of a metre and doing at least 40 in a 30 limit.
You get used to it after a while, I'm pretty relaxed about it but a lot of instructors I know are nervous wrecks.

You ought to try driving in Mexico. We don't go down there much anymore, well because the chances of getting shot have went way up lately But we used to go to the border towns quite often. It's some of the craziest driving I've ever seen . hahaha

People will try to cover up their mistake by telling me lies abut what happened (like it really matters that I know). Most of the time I refrain from telling them that elevators smell different to midgets too.... They wouldn't understand

Had to laugh again, at your daughter's description of her rush hour.

I used to get off work at 5, and if I waited 1 or 2 minutes, I could miss the "rush minute". The only place it is busy at the end of a workday, is in the checkout line at WalMart.

I don't know why they even waste the time and money putting turn signals on vehicles these days. Most of the population never uses them anyway.

If you think about it, hauling ass to get to the light is counter productive. Now you're sitting at the light for longer than the rest of us. We catch up to you, just in time for it to turn green.

I knew I wasn't the only one who thinks about things like this Around here, there's a stretch of I-295 that I drive pretty much every single day. I've declared Thursday to be "asshole day" on that road. For some reason, Thursdays are just fricking awful. People are more rude and ignorant than another other day of the week!

The one category you missed were the non-yielders. Yknow, those people who don't know what that big red YIELD sign means, especially when they come off an exit ramp. Pardon me if I don't move over for you--you're not that special! And learn to use a turn signal for fuck's sake. You'll probably never burn the bulb out in the short time you'll own your vehicle before you trade it for something shinier.

Tractor trailers? Give em a break. They can't stop on a dime, and they're not going 0 to 60 in 10 seconds either. They're big and ungainly and sometimes a pain in the ass, but if they weren't on the road, you wouldn't have most of the shit you have, including that car you're driving. Obnoxious 4wheelers FAR outnumber the obnoxious 18wheelers, so think twice before you do something stupid around a big truck. Most of them are just trying to do their job and get home safe.

One last group -- the blue light gawkers. These are the drivers who feel like they HAVE to slow down to 5 miles an hour whenever they see flashing lights on the side of the road. #1 --- the cop is busy.... he's not leaving what he's doing to come after you, unless you're doing something REALLY fucking stupid when you pass him. #2--the rule is slow down and move over when you see flashing lights on the side of the road. Slow down, not drop to crippled turtle speed just so you can tie up traffic and see what happened. This fucks up everybody behind you and makes it even more dangerous. If it's THAT good of an accident, it'll be on the news later that night.

Go ahead, squeeze in front of me when you shouldn't. You'll get the chance to hear my horn, and see my finger. And I'm not waving btw ......

These are the drivers who feel like they HAVE to slow down to 5 miles an hour whenever they see flashing lights on the side of the road. #1 --- the cop is busy.... he's not leaving what he's doing to come after you, unless you're doing something REALLY fucking stupid when you pass him. #2--the rule is slow down and move over when you see flashing lights on the side of the road. Slow down, not drop to crippled turtle speed just so you can tie up traffic and see what happened. This fucks up everybody behind you and makes it even more dangerous. If it's THAT good of an accident, it'll be on the news later that night.

    Go ahead, squeeze in front of me when you shouldn't. You'll get the chance to hear my horn, and see my finger. And I'm not waving btw ......
LOL..ok..you get two entries into the manual.

The Non Yielders....good one that i missed completely.

and

The Gawkers.

I agree on the second one completely. Just cause you see a wreck on the other side of the highway, doesn't mean you have to slow down and cause a wreck on this side.

Good additions, thanks.

Hello my dear, is the "narcissist" the same guy as"The Rules Don't Apply to me?"

I see that guy ALL THE TIME. Especially in traffic when everyone is patiently single filing to get onto another parkway and here comes Mr. Rules Dont Apply to Me guy and sleazes his way in front of 30 cars. Sheeshh.. Love that guy.

The Herd Animals
My grandfather's favorite saying for people who just couldn't seem to drive to save their butts was "If you can't drive it, pull it over and milk it!"
That one comes out of my mouth a LOT! lol Along with a lot of other stuff I won't be putting on here.
"I wonder if all of us who comment on other people's driving could pass our driving tests if we had to do it again." Hopefully I could since I have a CDL...that I got just before I turned 50! lol Of course, I'm still human and still manage to do stupid crap.
Thanks to rattailgirl for the bit about semis. People don't seem to have a clue about what it takes to drive one of those things and get pissed at the drivers when it's not something they're capable of changing. They would if they could!

Hmmmm....I know I left that wand around here somewhere!

You know, I had them in the Last Minute Lane Changer, but you're right. He'd fit perfectly into the Narcissist category as well.

Those guys drive me nuts. If everyone would just merge where they were, all of us would be moving faster. Instead of having to let the "most important" person in at the last possible moment.

LOL...I thought I heard all the comments about "pull over and...." That one was great.

Yeah, there are some dumbass and rude truckers as well, but most are really courteous and do a great job on the road. It's a lot different maneuvering that rig. People need to just chill.

hahaha, yeah I just can't do the speed limit. Always seems like i'm going so slow when I try.

That is definitely an addition. LOL I would bet it's horrible in Florida.

Those who slow nearly to a stop before turning the corner...on a 45 mph road...

I am a much less patient driver, and have been known to "talk" to idiots. I don't think I am quite as helpful as you are, however, lol.

It was a phone operator that hit me last Feb. while I was walking across the street and in the right of way.. I can not believe the amount of people I see still doing it..In my opinion those are also the narcissists who should not be on the road.... Good post....

    Had to laugh again, at your daughter's description of her rush hour.

    I used to get off work at 5, and if I waited 1 or 2 minutes, I could miss the "rush minute". The only place it is busy at the end of a workday, is in the checkout line at WalMart.
I live in a small town so know of what you speak here..... we just do not see all of it in a small town..

This is a big one to me. Maybe it's just that I remember my Dad telling us when we were young, when you're turning out of the street, get out of the street. LOL

Sure you need to slow down, but by nearly stopping, you're just increasing the chances of an accident.

I'm glad I'm not the only one talking to our friends on the road.

It's another one of those things where having that little mobile computer attached to us at all times, distracts us from what we should be paying attention to.

Brake checking is a bad idea when it's a car behind you. If you're doing it to a semi, well, they're a whole different level of idiot.
