The diesel truck boys are a lot of fun. Putt along doing three miles an hour and then the step on the gas on out comes a cloud of black fumes.
I don't know what has gotten into people, they're all just nuts.

Coming home today it was 80 MPH to 50 MPH to 80 MPH to 50 MPH with everyone right on each other's bumper hitting the brakes.
Things finally spread out a bit and I got to the head of the line and there's this woman in a monster SUV in the fast lane happily texting away without a care in the world. Speed up, text, speed up, read text, repeat.

Guy was doing 35 mph but when I passed him he stepped on the gas. And its happening more and more.

Ever notice that passing or even pulling up aside some guys is a challenge to their masculinity?
They putt along until someone moves to go by then they speed up but can only hold it for a little spurt.

Sounds like a time to pull up aside, take a picture, give a smile and make sure she sees you doing it.

I've been there! This is all too common now. And some day when I get pulled over for passing one of these jckwads I'll probably get yelled at by the police and laughed at by the texter. It is so so unjust. I don't know the answer but the police let them text.

Isn't that just doing what she is doing?
