MIKA27 Posted April 9, 2010 Share Posted April 9, 2010 WHAT GRINDS YOUR GEARS? Hi all. Just wished to post a thread where I hope people post and vent some of their daily frustrations regarding anything in life or about life you come accross or deal with that just p*sses you off. For example: This morning, I'm driving down Princess Highway, peak hour traffic, I'm in the far right side lane and this idiot is driving 40 Kph in an 80 Kph zone. Take into account this person is also in the far lane and shouldn't be there unless overtaking. So.... I tail gate him, flash my high beams, use the horn and notice he looks at the rear view so I gesture for him to cross over to the left lanes with my middle finger. You can't get politer than that yet he ignores me! I continue to use the horn and by now my blood is boiling, I can't over take this guy as there are loads of cars and trucks in all the left lanes (4 lanes in total), I flash the high beams and all of a sudden, I hear a police siren, not behind me but 2 lanes to my left. The Cop is gesturing for me to cross over and pull over! WTF!!?? It's peak hour, if I could cross over (Even with my Melbourne driving expertise) it is impossible to do so. The cop again continues to use his siren, I wind my window down and yell out at him that I can't cross to which he yells out, Neither can I, pull over where you can. (Is this guy f**king kidding!?) Anyway, I continue driving behind this Nissan Micra at 40 Kph, the road eventually takes me to Albert park lake and I turn right toward St Kilda road, ignoring the Cop and go about my business. The Cop doesn't follow, I'm in the clear, right? NO! Out of nowhere, the police car pulls out 50 metres in front, I pull over and get an earful from him about tail gating, flashing lights and not pulling over. A warning to which I in turn ask the officer; 'Why aren't slow people fined or bothered as that too is against the law and can cause accidents?" I also ask him; "Where does he suggest I pull over when I could not cross over to the left lanes to pull over and to my right is a concrete barrier being a Highway?" I'm told to shut up and that next time I will be fined. WTF!? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
