Oh Go Blow It Out Your Ear!

The place I lived before was a resort area. The place I live now is an even bigger resort area. But there is something definitely different about this one.

Actually, lots of things. But I won't get into all of that today.

One thing I've noticed is that people here are constantly blowing their horns at the people in front of them at stoplights or stop signs. I don't get it.

Now I'm generally a pretty attentive person. I don't linger at stoplights. LOL But I constantly have people blowing the horn behind me. Even if I am second, third, or fourth in line. And it scares the crap out of me every damn time.

What's up with these fools? Are they nuts? One would think that in a vacation area things would be slow and easy. And when people are walking--just pedestrians--they walk right out in front of cars. Don't even look. But in a car? They have no patience at all.

I'm pissed off! I'm going to start putting down my window and yelling out to the person behind me:

I completely hear you on this, Tess. I live in Massachusetts, which I swear is the home of the most impatient drivers in the US! Some people just figure they're way more important than us peons... And some apparently think that that extra half a second is going to make a huge difference in their lives.

Maybe the horn honkers are the residents who have to work while the tourists get to vacation. lol..

Good to see you, lady! (((Hugs and love)))

Hey Tess~

I should've warned you about that! Around here and in your tourist area, if someone lays on their horn, we usually deserve it. My daughter is typically behind the wheel so that pretty much says it all. ;)

I'll be in your neck of the woods for a few weeks this summer. Hopefully, we can get together :)
