I copied this from the Peeves thread because we are now venturing into chit-chat territory with my post:
My dad taught me the exact same thing - even told me to anticipate the most idiotic thing the other driver might do.Originally Posted by myrosiedog;2137212;
OK - my husband is not the idiot my posts make him out to be, but he is fodder for entertainment.
One night we were driving home and he was aggravated about something and complaining to me about it. He turns onto an expressway ramp. A ramp that had two of those big barriers that are painted orange and white, with the flashing yellow lights and the sign that says "Do not enter", you know the ones?
He steers around them. At this point I am saying nothing, just looking at him. We get to the end of the ramp, which is totally blocked by the road construction rubble, and he stops the car, looks around and says
(I swear) "What the hell?" I still just stare at him as he backs up the ramp and steers back around the blockades. I no longer let him drive when he is aggravated.
