1. No payments until whatever year ads. The worst way to purchase anything.

2. Just about every commercial ever made, because they were created for morons.

3. SUVs. I mean really, how many SUV owners actually take them off-road? And please, spare me with the, "I need one to haul every one else's kids around" theory. Drive to work in the morning and count how many SUVs on the road contain more than 1 or maybe, just maybe 2 persons. If you need to haul an umpty-squat load of kids, get a stationwagon or share the driving duties with other parents.

4. Cell phones. I mean come on people, do I really need to listen to what stanger Bob plans on having for dinner tonight or Aunt Gertrudes re-occuring bouts with diarrhea?

5. People who drive SUVs while chatting on their cell phones.

6. People who don't understand how to drive. These people don't have a clue. Here are some of their absurdities...

- tailgating, especially when the driver being tailgated has no where else to go. I guess the tailgater expects the tailgatee to jump the vehicle in front of them.

- Speeding towards the traffic light when the light is changing or has changed to red. Hey, by doing this, they just may make the light change back to green again.

- Zig-zagging between lanes. Oh sure, this is going to help them get to where they are going much faster...maybe by 1-3 minutes. I have a suggestion for this group...leave for your destination 1-3 minutes sooner and quit changing lanes so much. It so funny to me, that the majority of these people don't understand that traffic lights negate their intentions.

- slow drivers.
- drivers who drive SIDE BY SIDE, thus preventing anyone from getting by.
- drivers who drive BELOW the speed limit in perfect driving conditions.
- drivers who drive SIDE BY SIDE BELOW the speed limit.
- drivers who come RACING up the curb lane, only to cut in front of you because of a parked car.  while EVERYONE ELSE is waiting in the median lane.
- drivers who don't signal.
- tailgaters.
- cutting people off.
- coming SPEEDING through a yield when you DON'T have enough time!!  the sign is there for a reason.
- the majority of drivers over seventy.
- anyone who drives a buick.
- or an oldsmobile.
- the majority of teenage male drivers in mommy and daddy's car.
- when people like to race at stoplights.
- people who DON'T stop for a red light.
- speed freaks.
- people who drive on the shoulder!!
- drivers who speed up, slow down, speed up, slow down for no reason.
- people who take up more than one parking space.
- or park too close to your car.

and so it goes on and on and on and on.

will people EVER learn to drive?!?!



/jen/


i'm so bitterly disappointed.  betty, i think it's time you leave now.

<------ (must be absurd):

drives an suv (for the 4 wheel drive and snowboard gear capacity of course),
leaves 1-3 minutes LATER than she should,
so weaves in and out of lanes,
speeds up to yellow lights (to bomb through them of course),
and in Boston you can't use a blinker/directional (or at least it isn't advised, if the person in the lane you are 'hoping' to get into _sees_ your blinker on, they speed up to close any gap to prevent you from getting in, so you have to scoot in there before they have the chance),
and she does this all while talking on her cell phone. Boy oh boy.
(no I'm not proud of this and I don't do it _all_ the time, I'm just laughing at a few of these entries).

I just have one thing to add about the SUV.
Live in a state where 3-6 ft. of water is an annual occurence and you will understand.

Somewhere I have a picture of that ice blue firebird--unfortunately all you can see is the windshield.

Eating yogurt with a toothpick. It is also extremely unsatisfying.

Serenity,

"I just have one thing to add about the SUV. Live in a state where 3-6 ft. of water is an annual occurence and you will understand."

~ So what did you all do before the SUV craze? I can see it now, LA prior to the 1990s, traffic comes to a standstill due to flooded then stalled automobiles.

- Little garbage bags you keep in your car. Like you'll actually put the trash in it.
- A billion car dealerships in small cities.

-The fact that most people pay to go to a university where they cut most of the classes anyway!

-Seat belt checkpoints. We see them from a mile away, so we just buckle up before we get to the officer and then unbuckle a few feet down the road

-Winter frost on cars. ALWAYS makes me late!

-Neighbors who park in front of MY house and take MY parking space! DIE!

-The fact that my school got my ACT scores before I did

-The fact that I only went up one point in a year. I learned enough in one year to fill up one ACT point!

-The fact that I had to take the stinkin' test at 8am in a room full of my exboyfriend's whorish friends

-The fact that my #1 school costs more than the rest of my alternatives combined!

Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us.

- when people don't wear the seatbelts.  yes, i do so enjoy flying through the windshield upon impact.  ::cough cough::

- people who park in the driveway when they don't live there.  whether it be plumbers, salespeople, my sister's friends, etc.  it's rude.

- when you have a tune stuck in your head and don't know the band or name or enough of the lyrics to look it up.

- when you catch your sister stealing your boots for the fourth time when you've told her SEVEN times she's NOT allowed!!

- kids who have mommy and daddy buy their first car.


and saying it again because it needs to be said again...

- the price of anything at the movies.  eight and a half dollars for a small popcorn and small drink?!

Wind... you're not stupid, you're you, and you is great

Absurd things?
- Again, stupid people. I just about got into three accidents today, because people DON'T KNOW HOW TO DRIVE
(I swear, it's National Stupid Persons Week.)
- people who insist on mocking my beliefs
- being in a bad mood and not knowing why. Oh wait, that's a good thing

What did we do before SUV's?

We rented out our pirogues...

and? Opeth? I don't discount anything happening in L.A.

But on a less humorous note, check out the news for our humble state during the next hurricane. More than likely you will see the inevitable shot of cars stalled and people stranded in emergency conditions, on the ONLY EVACUATION route.

We don't have one, but we do own a large truck. Unfortunately, unless we grow wings, (not bloody likely ) our only hope for higher ground is a higher vehicle.

Peace to you Opeth, and may you never have to deal with such a thing in a low riding vehicle.

1. Cincy city buses ( I almost got run over 3x in ONE day {Less that four hours, to be exact})
2. Crazy Hanson-loving people....
3. Anyone who has ever found Justin Timberlake to be mildly attractive...
4. Christina Aguilera and her new "image".... reinventing oneself is a sign of sell outs...
5. school
6. my hands
7. lava lamps (though I love mine to death..)
8. stupid salespeople at Sam Goody who do not seem to understand the concept of A) "I don't need any help" or B) "May I buy the display?"  (really, is it my fault that they ran out of Beatles Abbey Road posters?  The stupid guy told me to drive an hour and a half in the opposite direction just to get one... mind you, I can't drive.)
9. school pictures
10. class rings
11.  My little Remme Remme (she's my bestest friend......)
12.  Every one of you!

tehe!  I'm off...
oh, right... I rememberd another person...

people

egos

cell phones (can be very helpful, but who uses it for helpful reasons? no, people have conversations in the grocery store about their petty personal lives that trust me no one else in the grocery store wants to hear about)

mtv

trends

religious junkies "spreading the word" by telling you you're going to hell unless you "find God"

fast food

people who just don't get it, but are "sophisticated" enough to think that they do (yeah right. go get another latte, loser.)

gossip

the sick plastic of our society that as a society we can never escape because a society will never be the individual
