Driving In The Rain
jennrouth
Let's make one thing very clear: I HATE driving in the rain.  It's pretty simple.  I hate it.  I will avoid it at all costs.  There are two reasons for this, which I will discuss below.

First, we've all witnessed this first hand, the moron who feels it necessary to drive 10 mph no matter what the speed limit actually is.  WHY???????  Oh GOD why?????????  I'm all for driving safe in the rain.  That is a smart idea.  Ease yourself to a little bit under the speed limit and proceed with caution.  There is NO reason for you to drive SO slow, and break every six and a half seconds.  Or to come to an almost FULL STOP at an intersection where you have a solid GREEN light.  Now I am not sure how it is in other states, but here in California, the minute it even starts to sprinkle drivers instantly turn into 90 year old women who sit on phone books because they can't see over the steering wheel drivers.  Yeah, you know the type...

On to my second reason for hating diving in the rain...  As much as slow drivers drive me bonkers... there is one thing that pisses me off more... That one guy that drives a nice souped up sports car that still thinks it's June and 90 degrees and sunny out so he drives like a damn NASCAR racer.  Really, dude?  This has been happening to me on my way to work in the morning, and I'm pretty sure it's the same DBAG.  I drive to work right after 5 o'clock in the morning.  5AM.  It is DARK.  Not only is it dark it is POURING BUCKETS OF WATER.  Back off my ass.  The road is windy and the speed limit is 55, I still drive 45-50, but I have been driving that road my whole driving career atleast twice a day!  So it's not like I'm being one of those 10 mph drivers I mentioned before.  I am being a cautious, safe and mature driver.

I just wish people knew how to drive in the rain.  It's not rocket science.  It's driving.  Learn how to do it or get your ass to the bus stop and let the professionals drive you around because YOU ARE A MORON.
