Just so it's not all about cabbies...

It's about asshole Merc drivers too.

Today, at the U-turn along Eunos Link to get to the PIE, we were in the line to take the turn when said asshole starting using his horn. For what? To get the line moving?

Not likely to happen dude. The road we're turning in to has three lanes, one of which was occupied by a tow truck dragging along a bendy TIBS bus. Uh, can we say, not going anywhere? And the tow truck wasn't any way in the wrong because only the nearest two lanes had the yellow box.

And the car at the head of the line? It would have been perfectly fine if the driver chose to stay where she (yes, it was a woman driver) was, but unfortunately, asshole's horning pressured her into making the turn into the two available lanes which, for a car with a long wheelbase, is not going to happen.

So there we were, stuck in traffic, tow truck with loooong bus in one lane, car with long wheelbase not going anywhere, and an asshole behind us.

So, thank you, EC 7007 K, that kinda made my day sucky. At noon.

    Pay for therapy. Pay to uproot and leave the country...

    The choice is simple.

    true...but watch out, shitty driving is a global phenomenon. As for idiot students, have always loved Battle Royale scenario...but should be a whole continent, instead of an island.

    shit, maybe I need some therapy too. uhh, where's the bordeaux?

    I don't know about other students, but the ones I've still some dealings with, online, at/from HQ NCC or are back from Australia on holiday, I actually like them.

    (Not so much those I might inadvertantly run into, smoking outside shopping centres, but these don't fall into that former category.)

    As for Battle Royale, I'd rather do the hunting myself. If you know what I mean.
