    Re: What is Wrong With People?

    As someone who spends a lot of time driving late at night, I've gotten used to dodging the periodic drunk driver. I can tell you, what I see during the day with distracted driving, people on their phones, or texting, or reading texts, is every bit as dangerous, if not more dangerous than drunk drivers. I've watched people blow through red lights simply because they weren't paying attention.

    Distracted driving is bad
    what amazes me is the amount of people vacationers mostly that end up on the side of the interstate out here with a blown tiredistroyed wheel well and in some cases a fire
    ive stopped to help a few and the reason they say is that they ran over something
    so I look at the survivor carcass on the other rim and it just that a carcass
    what is wrong with people
    how do you get in a car with no tread on the tires and go smokin down the interstate on a 100f day at 80 miles an hour
    with a license plate from three states away?
    these are the bumble heads that scare me the most
    our local tire shop is swamped sometimes with huge motor homes getting all new tires dragged in on the hook
    all retirees that have driven nothing bigger than a pickup. Piloting these rigs with no training it truly makes no sense
    crip’s we need additional training for a motorcycle seriously where is the sense here?

    unless there’s a wreck or a chance you could freeze to death I m not your first responder

    Reminds of several years ago when a lady backed into the E-type. I was in a parking spot not moving and could see her coming, backing out head down digging for something in her lap. Sat there blowing the horn to try to get her attention, but she didn't look up until she contacted my rear bumpers. When I asked afterwards, her response was that she was in a hurry but really needed to get a cigarette out of her purse so thought she'd do it while backing out. Didn't like it when I suggested that one or the other probably could have waited until the other was done.

    Also,I've noticed that the idiots who can't/won't return shopping carts to the store
    are the worst,when their vehicle gets hit by a loose one.
    We were talking about this the other day. You were wise to use gloves as I have heard it's unsafe these days to pick up random trash because of various substances that may be found on the surfaces.

    I see new stories regularly of police handling evidence who have received overdoses from contaminated surfaces.
