MERGING, PASSING, AND ENTERING TRAFFIC Whenever you enter traffic, signal and be sure you have enough room to enter safely. You have to share space with traffic already on the road and must know how much space you need to:
Merge with traffic
Cross or enter traffic
Pass other cars
Enter the freeway at or near the speed of traffic. (Remember that the maximum speed allowed is 65 mph on most freeways.) Do not stop before merging with freeway traffic unless absolutely necessary. Freeway traffic has the right of way. , <-----Very important part!!!
Don't try to squeeze into a gap that is too small. Leave yourself a big enough space cushion
Watch for vehicles around you. Use your mirrors and turn signals. Turn your head to look quickly to the side before changing lanes. Leave three seconds of space between you and the vehicle ahead. Make sure you can stop safely if you must.
If you have to cross several lanes, take them one at a time. Filter through traffic slowly. If you stop to wait until all lanes are clear, you will tie up traffic and may cause an accident
DO NOT HONK JUST BECAUSE THE THRU TRAFFIC IS HEAVY. WAIT FOR YOUR TURN AS THE THRU TRAFFIC HAS RIGHT-OF-WAY . <------ Again, very important, please read.
Just to clarify a few things for you so that the next time you don't piss off the wrong person. Did you really think that it was my responsibility to come to a complete stop in 65 mph traffic to allow you to merge in front of me? I was nice enough to slow down enough to allow you to smoothly merge in with the flow of traffic but you chose to drive at a pace that matched mine and you were running out of on ramp. Perhaps if you had attempted to speed up just a little, I would not have had to of sped up myself at the last second to avoid having you run into me. It is your job to get yourself onto the highway .....I had the right of way and offered you plenty of opportunity to get on without incident. The honking and the little one fingered wave that you gave me? Very nice!! I especially like how you pulled up beside me further on down the road and rolled down your window so that you could "wave" at me some more and call me a stupid bitch. I am sure that the 6 or 7 year old child that you had sitting with you in the front seat was proud to have such a brave, smart mommy. I was happy to wave back at you and call out your name. Did I get your name right? I thought I recognized you as "Dumbass fucktard" so if you did not hear me clearly when I called out to you, that is who I thought you were. Have a nice day!!!!!

I don't want to come across as completely bitchy but there is something hat I need to get of my chest. Dear friends, acquaintances, co-workers, and anybody that I come across on a day to day basis that might somehow feel the need to one day present me with a gift for some reason or another................ PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON"T BUY ME ANYTHING HORSE RELATED OR ANY TYPE OF BATH PRODUCT!!!!!! Oh my...... I feel so much better now! If you have been reading this blog for very long, you probably already know about my hatred towards receiving any type of bath soap, bubble bath, lotion, perfume, etc... as a gift. Unless you know that it is a brand that I use regularly... don't give it to me!!! This all started back in kindergarten with the Tinkerbell sets from the 70's. I know I sound like a horrible bitch but I just can't stand the stuff and I have extremely sensitive skin so buying this stuff for me is just a big waste of money.
Now, the horse topic. Just because my family raises horses and my mom and sister are into them. I DO NOT PARTICULARLY CARE FOR THEM!!!!! They are not my thing and I don't know why people seem to think they are . I have received enough horse related gifts over the years to gift a small nation. Please no more horsey gifts.
I am not hard to shop for and if you really want to gift me with something and have no idea of what I might like (which would only be because you have bad listening skills because I am pretty vocal about what I like and don't like) then make a donation to a wonderful charity in my name like the Ronald McDonald House or something
Again, I don't mean to sound like a total bitch but I just can't keep up with the charade any longer. :)

1. The weather- In the last week it has snowed, rained, sleeted, been 79 degrees, been 28 degrees, and been so windy that nothing will stay attached to the ground. Yesterday it was in the mid 70's... today I wake up to howling wind outside my window, it is 38 degrees and falling, and it is raining... very cold rain I might add. AacK!!!!!
2. Christmas lights- Why is it that every strand I put up seems to have issues? I am ready to throw it all in the trash!!!
3. The Gap/Banana Republic/ Old Navy website--- could the thing be any slower? It is always a very slow website but it is really slow right now. And why can't the programmer that designed the site make it easy to check the status of your shipment? It should not take 15 steps just to figure out where your package is.
4. The dude who lied to me- I really thought he was a better person than that. Jeez was I stupid!!!
Thanks for letting me vent!!!
