Pizza Delivery

So I’m driving, and a car pulls out behind me and wouldn’t you know it, the bastard has his high beams on. Ask anyone who knows me, my number on pet peeve on the road is high beams. I think these people should be pulled over, dragged into the woods, and beaten into submission with a blunt object. Then said blunt object should be used to smash their headlights and every window on their car. Yeah, it gets me mad. I can just barely tolerate it when it’s someone coming towards me since I can try to focus on the side of the road, even though that’s a pretty stupid skill to learn when the object is to keep your eyes on the road. But when it’s behind me that really gets me. I’m driving. I can flip my rear-view mirror down, but then I have to fumble with my side view mirrors, while I’m trying to pay attention to the road. For just this purpose I put those aftermarket ultra bright headlights in my car. I think they burn at 5000K, maybe 7000K. I can’t remember. So what I usually do is pull quickly over to the side of the road, let them pass, then quickly get behind them and FLOOD their car with my brights. Lucky for them, I don’t do it for long as I don’t want to blind people coming who didn’t do anything wrong.
It’s even more annoying when someone does it during the day or at dusk, or even in high ambient light areas like the middle of cities. Those people I just want to push off a cliff, then drop their car off to finish the job.

  1. I blog quite often and I really thank you for your information. This article has
    truly peaked my interest. I will book mark your website and keep checking for new information about once per week.

    I opted in for your Feed too.

  2. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad
    and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she
    has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!

  3. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering
    issues with your blog. It appears as though some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this
    happen before. Kudos

  4. When I originally commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment
    is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that
    service? Kudos!
