It's rant time.

So I was driving the other day. Minding my own business, trying to get to the track to walk with T. When the truck in front of me started slowing down. Slower. Slower. We get to a corner and he/she just stops. I'm sitting behind him/her wondering "WTF?" when all of a sudden, the signal light starts blinking.

ARRRRRRRRGGGGG!!! Nothing is more frustrating to me then people who don't signal before they turn!! Signal lights were installed for a reason people!! Use them!! At least half a block BEFORE you intend to turn.

And another one, speeding through school zones and park zones. Do you realize there are children around these places? And sometimes kids run out on the road without looking?

And drifting through stop signs? Really? REALLY?

And the amount of people I see still talking on their cell phones and driving! I admit, I was guilty of it before the law came into effect. But I have tried very very hard to talk and drive. I bought a wireless blue tooth for my truck. It works awesome! I only really turn it on when I am driving on the highway. Because in town, I can always pull into a parking lot to answer the phone.

And excessive speeding. I HATE that! Yes, I speed but never more then 10 km over the speed limit. And it depends on road conditions. If it is snowing and blowing, or raining, I slow down. I don't go blowing by people at 160. When I do pass, I wait until it is safe to do so. I can't even count the amount of times I have had to ride the shoulder to let some moron, who is in such a big hurry, he can't wait for the passing lane 2 km ahead, go past me. 

Whew. I feel better.

This stuff has been on my mind for a long time. I have always meant to write about it but because this blog is call "Becoming Oliver", I didn't know how this post would fit in. Then I realized, this rant is also a part of me. It's how my mind works.

I am a little worried that once I start my testosterone shots, that my anger will increase. I was told by my shrink to make sure I keep seeing her because emotions can run rampant. I expected that. I think being aware of it will be a good first step.

OK. Rant over.

I love a rainy night



  1. Man, I sure don't want to see you angry. I like you the way you are. If you do get them though, please be gentle with me.

    1. I love when you comment. I'm not that bad when I get angry. I think. LOL I promise to be gentle with you.
