Normally I'd be using a pair of clam digger rubber gloves right noe with black nitrile gloves on as well. Haven't bought the clam digger gloves yet this year.

It turns out just wearing two pair of black nitrile gloves keeps my hands almost warm.

Smart woman.

Don't forget to add PA, NJ, NY, MA, NH. Toss in a few spoiled kids driving hopped up trucks, a couple morons jacked up on drugs, a seat of hoodlums looking for trouble, a flock of soccer mom's not knowing how to drive their brand new gigantic SUV, and a dash Richie riches thinking they own the road... and you have a complete picture of what it's like to drive in Sarasota/Manatee county.

I sat in traffic yesterday for an hour to go all of 2 miles and I was taking back roads through neighborhoods. Accident after accident.

Re: Things I Love


I find drivers (not in the city) in NY to be overall good. They actually listen to the work signs. Like when it says the right lane will be closing ahead they all move to the left lane ahead of time.

Down here in CT they wait until the last second and cause all kinds of traffic problems because they want to get 1 or 2 cars ahead instead of just merging into line and waiting like everybody else.

Just like when there is a 1/2 mile long line to get onto I84 west you have the azzholes who think they can go up to the beginning and merge in without waiting like everyone else did. I'll never let those types in and will actively make sure they can't get in. Ya, call me an azz, but if I have to wait, so do you.

Drivers around Seattle are too timid, and try to be too polite.

“You go.”

“No, you go (waves).”

“Oh no, you go first.”

Me: “SOMEBODY FRIGGIN’ GO!!!”

Come to the NYC area and that will never be an issue. I was coming home from N.Y. last Friday cars were driving in all 6 lanes plus the right and left shoulders. In a rain storm

You do know Leo that if everyone waited until the actual merge happened and then alternated that’s the quickest way to keep traffic flowing. Getting into the lane ahead of time in heavy traffic is what helps to create and
jam up and being a douche bag by blocking both lanes is also a loser move.

I was waiting for someone to bring that up. We'll see where this conversation goes.

It wasn't heavy traffic on the thruway, just thick.

Disagree. Sure, in a perfect world with automatons doing the merging, that would work. But in the real world, even without anyone intentionally being a dipwad, those on-the-spot merges will have all sorts of sputters and delays.

Do your merge well ahead of time, and barring misfits (okay, impossible condition), you'll have the best possible traffic flow conditions.

Who's the bigger douche, the guy who blocks the dead-lane zippers, or the zippers?

Re: Things I Love


If the vehicles would join together while traffic is moving, yes, things would tighten up with following distance, but traffic would keep moving.

When some asshat runs to the end of the merge area, someone has to stop to let them in. That stop runs back the line of traffic and effes everyone up.

"Get in line, while there is time"....that's my moto.

Probably I should get a copyright on that, now that I think of it....
