So I’m driving through Montgomery

So I’m driving through Montgomery County today to deal with a family crisis, when I decide I need to change lanes. I signal, check my mirrors, glance over my shoulder, and start to move. Suddenly, I have to jump back into my lane because there’s a car right where I’m trying to merge to.

It’s a MoCo cop, and he’s giving me the look of death. Hey look, don’t hang out in my blind spot when you see me signaling and we won’t have these problems.

I’m not sure if I’m relieved that he didn’t pull me over or appalled at the stunning lack of professionalism when he flipped me the bird as I pulled in behind him.

Fuck you too, asshole.

    I’m sorry to hear of your loss, I’ve had one cat pass and another out of the three go missing for an evenign or two, and that freaked me out.

    As for MoCo cops, they are pretty much the most useless piles of dung in the state next to MD State Police. Ner do they pull over a reckless driver, ner do they properly direct traffic and come to a motorists assistance in time of need. Your experience of their “self-entitlement” and driving skills is but a small public display of their own disregard to traffic laws and general courtesy. I’m more peeved they get to use the cars on off hours to shuttle their families and drinking buddies around as well as to pick up gorceries and dry claning… while my tax bill keeps increasing.

    I work with a former cop, from Lynchburg, VA… and as it is with State Police and as it should be with “county mounties”, they are only allowed to “speed” if their lights are one (the “trouble bubbles”) and are on call or in pursuit of a suspect or incident, all other times they are to obey the same laws… but I’ve rarely seen it…

    Maybe a local election here can have a candidate address these annoyances as well… sorry for the rant… but wanted to share the grief and frustration…

    (Tom and Tiff, do you have another cat? Mine, Oedi, was heartbroken for weeks when Coquette passed away…)

    *Sigh* I cannot cry again this morning. A Guinness toast to Guinness would be very fitting.

    I ended up flipping a woman the bird in the parking lot of Hairy Teet yesterday evening. Her beemer driving husband pulled up and blocked myself, a motorcyclist and two other cars from progressing any further; they just sat in their car. I tooted my horn, the wife got out of the vehicle (along with daughter) and started shouting profantities at me whilst banging on the hood of my car. I was on the phone at the time (using my earpiece thankyouverymuch) and just laughed, which made her more angry. So I flipped her the bird (not something I do mildly). Her husband watched everything in the rearview mirror and proceeded to sit there, blocking traffic, until the motorcyclist (a female) started yelling for him to move.

    I finally parked, and watched him loop the lot, trying to find the closest parking space.

    Wish DMV had a test for determining drivers who test positive for “absolute idiot” before issuing the license to drive. There are just waaayyy too many of them.
