    Disclaimer: I'm almost 100% sure I'm going to offend someone while they are reading this, so right off the bat, I'm sorry for anything i say that may that upset you. Its not intentional, I'm just opinionated. Second thing, I'm not racist. I make lots of racist comments because more often than not the people that aggregate me the most are of another nationality. It is not my fault that foreigners are annoying. If you don't want people to talk about you, stop being so annoying and/or go back to your own country, have you ever thought of that? No. Because you continue to visit our country and annoy caucasian americans, like myself, daily. 

    My first rant is not really about drivers, it's about pedestrians in parking lots. Quick thing: THE PARKING LOT IS FOR CARS! Why do you insist on walking in the middle of the parking lot or slowly walking diagonally across the isle. Once again, THERE ARE CARS IN THE PARKING LOT! A car can kill you. Pay attention. Why do you think it's okay to do as you please, I just don't understand.
    Then there's those parking lots with the diagonal parking spots. The spots are angled so that you can only pull into the spot coming from one direction, hence the arrows on the ground and the small amount of room in each isle. So when I pull down the isle, going the right direction and you're coming at me head on, from the wrong direction, I'm not moving. Do not flick me off and get aggravated because you're wrong and I refuse to back my car up for you to pass through. You should not be allowed to operate a motor vehicle if you're that stupid. We learned about arrows when we were three. How do you function in daily life, seriously?
    Another thing, turning lanes. I don't know if you see the big lane with several left pointing arrows in it, and even if you don't, is it ever okay to make a left hand turn form the right lane? No. So why do you flick me off for almost hitting you when I'm in the left lane, making a left turn. Most of the time they're canadians. I've been to Canada and I'm pretty sure it's a universally not okay to turn left from the right lane. Go back to Canada. I live 30 mind From the canadian border so, don't worry, I'll have a whole post about those idiots coming soon.
    And then there's the lane drifters. PICK A LANE! Holy crap, it is 100% unnecessary   to slowly drift back and forth between 2 or 3 lanes. Again, go back to Canada.
    It's astonishing to me that I've never been in a car accident. My main rule of the road? Always assume that every person is going to do the stupidest thing possible. Because they most likely are. Second rule, of you see a car with a Canadian license plate, assume they are going to do something that even the stupidest american wouldn't do. If you see a Canadian driver that's also Indian or Chinese, just turn around because they will either kill you, or piss you off..

It's for people with a sense of humor, clearly not for you smile thanks for the input I already forgot about it.. Are you canadian? Is that why you're being such a partypooper?

    On some of my hubs I've been known to put, “Warning. Humor may be present.” Otherwise, some of my readers become greatly confused. I'm just saying... big_smile

    I'm still not sure what the purpose of this post was.

    To offend people? To get a rise out of people? To vent?

    Sometimes people don't see something clearly. Or on a rare occasion do something stupid such as going the wrong way in a one way lane in a parking lot. Or because they're from a different location, trying to navigate and watch for other drivers and figure out where you're going is something that can confuse anyone, particularly in a large city. And they are probably feeling stupid themselves. They're human. You're human. We're human. We make mistakes. Yeah there's room for improvement. But it seems a rather minor annoyance in the broad scheme of things.

    You do make racist comments. If you know it will offend, then why say it?

    No, I'm not Canadian.

      It's just meant for entertainment. If you don't understand the humor and can't appreciate it, then don't read it? I also live in a small city and I understand that people make mistakes, but that doesn't give them a right to be assholes, that's where it gets annoying. I am offensive, but it's for humor purposes only, more people are entertained then offended. I just make observations, and most of the time, those people that I'm observing happen to be foreign. It's really out of my control.

        If I didn't read it, then I wouldn't have had any opinion on it. I read it because it was posted in a public forum. If you had not wanted people to respond to it, then you shouldn't have posted in a public forum.
          I understand it's meant for entertainment. I also understand the humor. This isn't about appreciating humor. It would be one thing to rant about bad drivers. It's another to target your comments toward people of a different race.  I just think your comments are offensive to the foreigners you address. Humor is good but humor at the expense of someone being offended at a direct comment made against their race seems a little inappropriate.  that was what I was saying.
          Each to their own.

    "THE PARKING LOT IS FOR CARS!"

    Agreed, but having parked what are people supposed to do?
    Sit there and wait for an hour and then drive off again?

      No, but the also shouldn't walk in the middle of the lanes or step out in the middle of the street without paying attention.
