    Default What really irks you??

    1) I get totally p/o'd when you go to a store in July to replace summer clothes and they have they're winter stock out already.

    On Hallowe'een, Queen B and I went to our local Walmart to get a few things. Everything was as it should be. Spooky stuff decorated the stores.

    (No, not pics of Holly driving a big truck, SCARIER than that!!)

    The very next day the whole store is all decked out for xmas.

    Today, I run in for a few things and they are putting SUMMER STOCK out already.

    Apparently the ad execs forgot this is CANADA and we have four seasons

    Nearly Winter, Winter, Almost Winter and July 18th.

    2) Radio news broadcasts that can't bother upgrading information.

    (i.e) the story of the crazed trucker that turns out to be some kid in a pick-up truck
    the traffic report of extreme grid lock and then you drive unstopped thru the same area 2 minutes later.

    3) The excuses from highway maintenance people how they were caught totally surprised by a storm that had been forcasted for 3 days prior to it actually arriving.

    4) Truck Driver Training Schools that can teach you everything you need to be a Professional Truck Driver in 3 weeks. Hmmmmmm, must be something I'm doing wrong. 36 years later and I'm still learning

    I hate when a 4 wheeler passes me when on a country 2 lane road, and then wants to turn left at the next corner and makes me stop for them!!

    Or when a 4 wheeler passes me when i'm pulling away from a light or stop sign, and then drives slower than i want to go. So then i have to try and pass them.

    And i hate those school buses that won't pull over and let traffic past , when theres about 20 vehicles behind them.


    Or when someone drives really slow in the middle lane on the 401, forcing trucks to pass them on the right.

    Big trucks(so called professional) tailgating other trucks at whatever speed, creating a wall and blocking ANY lane changes...
    Usually prompting me to phone their safety dept.

    So-called 'professional drivers' that park on the fuel islands and go inside for their meal or a shower.

    Being so bogged down with commitments, the one's that are really important keep getting put off.


    (Sometimes the 45 mile drive takes 11 or 12 months.)
