The Most Annoying Drivers Ever!

Dear Driver Life,

Every morning, Monday to Friday, I have to wake up extra early to suffer through the daily congested Atlanta traffic. When it comes to having a peace of mind and calmness, I bring my MP3 (yes its old but I just refuse to put music on my cell phone) and my aux cord so I can jam to my favorite tunes. However, sometimes my peace of mind gets ruined in a matter of seconds when it comes to anxious human beings wanting to reach their destination that will

And here is the list!

The Tailgater: When driver in a car keeps approaching the back of your vehicle.


These drivers are low-key disrespectful. You would usually have this happen when the tailgater is riding up your ass trying to signal you to move faster, or they could just be coming up too close when you at a traffic light. If I am driving at the right speed limit, I am going to need you to merge and pass me, or just back the hell up.

The ALL-OF-SUDDENS: Driver that just makes risky, but unnecessary stops or turns that might kill your breaks.

These drivers are best explained by example. Let’s say you are driving down the busy road and about a half of a mile you see a driver in a vehicle preparing to pull out on your lane. You would expect that the driver knows how to yield, but this driver thinks he/she is some kind of “Daredevil” and ALL OF SUDDEN pull out in front you. You pump your breaks hard hoping not just rear the car. So your blood pressure goes up and when you thought that was the end, the driver in front of you is driving slower than the speed limit…..

And this leads to….3!

The Slow Drivers: I think we all know what this means…

This does not need any explanation, but it needs to be addressed. Drivers should at least drive at the required speed limit. When it comes to the left and right lane, I do believe if you need to speed up, you should use the left lane, but if you are not in no rush and want to drive at the required speed than stay on the right side. When you are on the highway, the rules still apply.

Before we move on, I want to disregard the people who can’t help but drive a steady pace. For example, if you are disabled, a new driver (teens etc.), or elderly, or perhaps a parent who is practicing safe driving with children I deeply understand you. This also disregard people who are obviously lost of finding their way.

The Portable Cat-Callers: When someone is trying to flirt while driving.

I do not find it considerably annoying but awkward because everyone has places to go and my mission is to head straight home. If you are rolling down your car window trying to get my attention, I am just going to ignore you. Where do you think this situation is going to go? If you think that I am just going to write my phone number and throw it to you through the car window, you gotta be crazy.

The Nosey-Elves: Drivers who like to check out the crazy accidents on the side of the road.

Usually, you would mostly find these drivers in crazy congested traffic and one of the most common causes of traffic is vehicle accidents. Something about seeing cars damaged and collided together with flashing police and firefighter cars seems to really entertain drivers to slow down and figure out how the accident happened.

I can’t be a hypocrite, because I tend to do it myself.

The “Fast & Furious”: Drivers who most likely drive sporty cars driving just reckless.

I understand that everyone must have their fun and break the rules every now and then, but if you are doing that in a busy almost congested highway, I am going to need you to be open-minded about the other drivers around you. The drivers around you have family or loved one that wants them alive and home and we just do need a risk of an accident that may be fatal. My best suggestion is to speed when there is literally close to no traffic for less risk.

The Assholes: Honking the horn unnecessarily and etc. 

And again, people have places to go and I am sorry, NOT sorry if your destination is not going as planned. Honking your horn is not going to make congested traffic quicker. Flipping me off is not going to make me learn my lesson because you don’t know how to be patient and understanding. For example, I had a driver who riding in my lane without noticing and I honk the horn just to signal him. After I honked the horn, this asshole flipped me off and signaled his hands like a gun like he was “threatening” to shoot me. While he was busy trying to recover his ego and pride, he failed to know that I was honking the horn at him in order to look out for him…..and this leads to the next list…

Road Rage:…

Most common road rage is when a person is yelling insults with a mix of profanity, and any temptation to just express frustration and anger, but when it escalates it gets dangerous and almost deadly.

Aggressively bullying, screaming, or threatening the driver is WRONG! DEAD WRONG! I don’t care if the driver did ANY of these things I mentioned on the list. Causing a threat to a person is wrong. If you do this, you need to take some major anger management classes because this type of road rage is immoral.

For example, according to ABC News, a teenager, Kevin Rodriguez fatally stabbed at Walmart parking lot by a full adult male due to road rage. A teenager…his life was cut short all because of a selfish, immoral human being that does not know how to control not only his anger but his prejudice by the assumption of situation.

My heart hurts when I see victims who die just because they accidentally sat under the green light in just less than five seconds or when they try to honk their horn to signal you that almost hit them.

People need to be more open-minded and understanding because I promise you that most of these honks you hear are just drivers trying to protect you. Therefore, please take the time to think before you act.

Life Lesson#96: Expressing anger is like spreading the fire of negativity that can destroy your dignity and respect from others. Expressing calmness spreads wisdom and peace.

Facebook Is Becoming a Drag

Dear Social Media Life,
Facebook. Yes, I want to discuss about Facebook. Recent bloggers wrote about the declining interest about staying active on this social site and for their reasons, it is understandable that like Myspace, Facebook had it’s fad and now it’s becoming a drag.

When I first heard about Facebook, I been lectured and attacked verbally by adults saying that Facebook was only for adults. Yea,like that was going to stop kids from joining. I first joined Facebook during my freshmen year in high school because it was a new way of interacting and keeping in touch with (short-term) friends at that time.However, I ended my account because it got boring but returned my freshman year in college just because I wanted to stay in touch with family members,especially my anti-social cousins.

As the years gone by, my account was collecting dust. I stopped updating my status.Facebook got boring and foolish for so many reasons. Here are a list of reasons why I closed my account:

1. Ignorance

Facebook users had become so ignorant.When it comes to certain topics especially politics and religion, ignorant users would write the most arrogant and insulting comments just to attack and make them feel like they are better. You have racists ,”fat shamers”, political jerks, and just ignorant people.For example, I replied to a news post expressing my opinion and all of a sudden, a user replied calling me a “stupid bitch”instead of just expressing why the he disagrees.

Users will be so brave to write their ignorance  online but won’t say it in public because they know they are wrong and don’t want to be right.

About Facebook friends, they can be ignorant too that you have to unfriend them or avoid their post . I have to thank facebook for revealing who they really are because you have people posting some ignorant and disturbing stuff  and that leads to #2.

#2. The post are fucking disturbing.

The videos of people fighting, the pictures of severe sick children, “like this or comment if you like this” and  a picture of a naked girl. Facebook friends posting dark depressing thoughts. Facebook friends spamming your wall with stuff from one facebook page for example, I had one user keep liking Christmas pictures from a Christmas themed facebook page and my wall was just spammed with the user liking every single Christmas picture post and the funniest part, IT WAS ONLY MAY!!!

3. My cousins and friends are still anti-social.

I still can’t get this whole social thing. I remember the good days when internet was not even a need when it came to my childhood. When we don’t see each other in person, we would just call each other on the phone just enjoying the sound of physically talking to each other. Now, I feel people just don’t like to talk at all but send snapchats and text. 7 times out of ten, they don’t reply back. As a millennial , I do worry that my generation will lose the confidence and skill of public communicatation.

4. Nothing new.

Same folks, same strokes. Same usual facebook friends that still remains on the site posting latest pictures and stuff. Same pattern of people’s facebook behaviors. People from my high school who I rarely talked to kept spamming me with friend requests.

5. On the bright side, people are maturing from facebook.

I believe people are starting to miss the moment without Facebook. Every week another person shuts down their account for common reasons. I quit facebook because I wanted to socialize with people outside of the internet. I want to get to know people as time passes not for five minutes studying about the person from his/her profile.

With quitting Facebook, I have more time to focus on me and my goals. Outside of just going to classes, I have been more active at the gym. I enjoy the outdoors. I’m more comfortable with communicating with my peers. Overall, I just been more focused.

I sure do hope someday, people will start interacting more with people outside of social sites. Don’t get me wrong , it’s OK to use social sites sometimes but don’t let it be too often because there is so much life to live outside your phone, computer,tablet etc. Even if you are an introvert, it’s worth to try something new and outgoing.

Life Lesson #78: Avoid your distractions and FOCUS!

Thank you,

Lady Elle.
