And never put on your directionals (turn signals) or make eye contact with another driver before changing lanes--that's the signal for them to speed up so you can't.
Absolutely true!! Driving on Storrow Drive once to a Sox game I once made the mistake of letting a taxi into the line of traffic. From the looks I got and the horns you would have thought they were all Yankee fans!

On the bright side.........this would make playing the license plate game very easy!!
I should drive you and Shasta around Boston.......................
Two hands on the wheel..........and two thumbs on the horn...........
I have heard about that Boston driving. I refuse. Never will do it.
And if I have my way I won't be doing it LA too much longer.
Lily is 100% right. LA drivers are mean. I think most of the traffic here is caused by people who think that they can cut everyone off instead of merging in a zipper formation, and they then slow everyone down, themselves included.
I don't know why everyone in LA seems to think that if they can just cut in one car length sooner they will suddenly get to their destination much faster. People will drive on the SHOULDER to cut one car length. It's insane.
...I informed one of our PIA "frequent flyer" inmates(male, mind you)...when he asked what was wrong with him(for the fortieth time NOTHING!)...that he had a cyst on his ovary that could rupture and kill him....he bought it...hook, line & sinker....
Damn Scott, I had to hold my ribs for the giggles... that's evil but I LOVE IT.
There'a a person who comes in the salon.....she thinks that she's an expert on everything, and is always talking down to the stylists, she is especially mean to her stylist, always telling her that she needs to lose weight, that Mtn Dew is going to kill her, etc.
The other day she comes in, and starts bragging about being invited to spend the week at her friend's beach house. She then tells my co-worker that "sometimes you just need to get away and see blooming things".
....I looked at her, and before I could stop it, I said "and some people could save money and simply look in the mirror".
