driving with bugs and song


So as I drove into work this morning, trying to make it through the hail storm that Florida calls love bugs (those really are hard to get off the windshield), I listened to my son sing in the backseat – I have finally learned to make sure that I play his playlist while he is in the car!
This came about after the first time he started singing The Blackeyed Peas “Gotta Get Get” and 3OH!3’s “Don’t Trust Me”.   Even though he did get those lyrics a little wrong – ‘Shush girl, shut your lips, do the “Helly Kelly” and talk with your hips” (Real lyrics = HELEN KELLER!! for those that don’t know!) – Even as I laughed, I decided maybe it would be better to play “Old MacDonald” – His 3 year old ears pick up way too much! 🙂

Then I drop him off at school, drive to work… Don’t you love it when you are at a stop light jamming to a song, doing a little dance, and you look over to the car next to you and the person in there is doing the same thing? 🙂 Of course, I have looked over sometimes to someone just staring at me like I have a horn growing out of my head – I just smile, wave and keep on jamming!

Speaking of driving, one of my biggest pet peeves comes with traffic… WHY, oh WHY do people on the interstate have to go the same speed in all three lanes? Drives me nuts… you’re stuck behind a couple of cars, can’t get around them and there is nothing but clear highway in front of them…. WTF people – move the hell over – Those are the people that cause road rage!! Just saying….

Also – my hubby will roll his eyes at me for posting this – but he does this thing driving that just really kills me. You know how you have a rear view and side mirrors? Well – someone correct me if I am wrong – but isn’t the point of those mirrors to give you a 360 view of area around your car, so that you can sit in the driver’s seat and not have to be looking around? Well my hubby read somewhere that you should put the side mirrors all the way out… (When I drive in a car after him I get dizzy) – Anyway – so he puts the mirrors all the way out – THEN when he wants to change lanes or whatever, he has to lean over into the window… WTF?? Seriously? Is that logical? another pet peeve – exclusive to the hubby I guess… just saying… 🙂 (Love ya honey!)

Other pet peeves of mine in drivers:
1. Stopping in a lane to GET in the turning lane – seriously folks…
2. Stopping on an on ramp – There is a merge lane for a reason – so you can get up to the speed of the traffic and MERGE –
3. speeding up and slowing down on the interstate… usually means someone is on the phone or texting and not paying attention…
4. tailgating me when it is obvious that I am also stuck behind some idiot going the same speed as the car next to them… if I could go faster, I would, get off my ass!

I am sure there are more – these are the only ones popping in the ole head at the moment though…
