Grrrrs of my own

Daughter and I were on our way up to KMart this morning, and so are driving. I'm minding my own business, going the speed limit (for once) on a road that's full of "S" curves and hills...I'm cautious because with my SUV I'm pretty top heavy. So, glancing in my rear view I see a Saturn RIGHTONMYBUTT. I hate this, I really do. So I signaled and pulled off at the first opportunity, and this car goes flying past me. Needless to say, when I was back on my way I didn't see that car ahead of me.

I get so damn mad when people do this. I "drive by the rules," stay at least a car length behind the person in front of me, and get squat for my troubles. Oh yeah, did I mention the dirty looks I get because I drive an SUV?

People, why don't you just ask why I drive what I do instead of bitching at me because I drive it? I'm NOT going to defend myself to anyone here, except to say that my choice has nothing to do with my political affiliation. And it happens to be red because it's my favorite color. Cripes, BillyJeff was still in the White House when I bought the damn thing. Oh yeah, and my vehicle is ENTIRELY PAID FOR. Can any of you say that?

Do you think I like paying outrageous prices for gas? I don't even fill up the tank anymore, and I don't do any unnecessary driving.

I've got my reasons, if anyone would stop spouting environmental twaddle at me long enough to ask. If Chevy made a hybird SUV, as Ford has, yeah, I'd get it, but that just hasn't happened yet.

Makes me so goddamn mad... Mind what you drive and how you're driving before you start berating me!
