LMAO!!! That is so annoying! I grab the skis or poles before they hit me and swing them the opposite way. But the best is, my boyfriend started holding his snowboard over his shoulder and swinging it around just like the skiers do. And then the skiers get aggravated!! Believe that shit lol

Haha. You know how the entrance to some parks are usually right in the middle of the run? What we usually do when he comes is right before the entrance to the park we will all be like "yea were going to the park!!" then we let him go first, he goes into the park and we keep going. Waa laa. Gone. Hahahaha

God I couldn't agree more, cannot tell you how many times I've almost been neutered in the lift line by someone pushing themselves along with ski poles and the pole slips and comes straight back at me.

Now my rant. I have a 20 minute drive to the local resort, and have to cross railroad tracks twice. WTF is up with people in Hummers or suv's (which are basically just minivans) slowing to a crawl because they have to drive over railroad tracks. Hell, I'll hit them at 40mph in my Corolla. Even on the motorcycle i'll do it at 30 or so, the Hummer f--krs will do it at 10. Same with people driving slow because a cop is coming in the other direction "oh no, big scary police car, they might get me! I better slam on the brakes!" GTF off the roads and go back to your sitcoms and soccer practice.

I believe each road needs at least 2 lanes in each direction. One lane for people that know where they are going and another can be "been driving for 30 years and still don't know what I'm doing" lane.

This is why I lane split on the bike, I was taught you drive on the right and pass on the left, but 90% of the time both lanes are blocked with people going the exact same speed right next to each other. If people dont like it, go faster, or get out of the way.

This is probably word for word what my pet peeve is with other drivers. To add to the list a third PITA driver is one who at the last minute yanks his vehicle in front of yours or about to hit yours when you're in the passing lane so they don't have to let off the gas. Now, generally I speed up so they don't have to and am courteous like this where most don't return the favor. Sometimes they speed up trying to get ahead of me before switching to the passing lane for no reason but to slow down in front of me and make themselves even more of an ass. Right now I find drivers from CT to be the worst I've ever seen, worst than NYC and NJ drivers which is pretty bad.

I refer to those that slow down then speed up as yo-yo drivers as they act like one going back and forth. Today heading back from central CT I had one asshat who was riding the left lane passing no one stay there even when I rode their ass to get them to move. As I move to the right and speed up to go on by as he does the same. We come to a car ahead of me as I'm forced to move behind him once again and he slows down proceeding to flip me off. Staying calm I just rode him so they couldn't see my headlights until they moved finally. I'm not sure how some people survive and let alone wait for "Darwin selection" to take place to keep these idiots off the road.

Earlier in the trek, another family man or wife yanked their piece of crap old van into the left lane forcing me to slam the brakes so they could pass the car ahead of them. After they pulled over to the right lane, I sped up to get by the asshat and they speed up to stay with me. When people do this I just floor it so I don't have to put up with anymore of their bullshit later on. Last year with snow covered highways someone did just this forcing me to slam my brakes and my truck fishtailing until I got it back under control. I'm to the breaking point at times ramming them off the damn road and never looking back.

Too many people these days always point the finger at someone else saying it's their fault, the other person is wrong, blah blah and never self reflect as how idiotic and dumbfounding their actions are to see how wrong they really are to begin with. That's my problem, I'm too damn nice and easy going.

1. We deal with that shit most of the way to Mammoth...passing people in the right lane. Even the ones that see me burnin towards just stay there, like a fucking standoff. I see some drivers get so pissed they just ride their ass, but I just go around, still pissed, but don't want to give them anymore energy than I already have.

2. I always wonder what the fucking pathology is with people like that. If someone wants to take off and haul ass, I just let them on by. They speed up when they see me approach to pass...then as soon as I get stuck behind the other slow sam I immediately see brake lights. The only thing that has worked is I just drop back, pretend like I don't give a shit, wait for a hole...charge it and go.

How about the fucking assholes that just refuse to honor the staggered merge. One from each side makes it so much easier, but there will forever be the dick that just needs to get that one car ahead....What the fuck makes you so special? You pee sitting down or standing up like the rest of us, wait your turn! Stupid people and there empty little "victories".

I'm now going into my 9th day straight without a day off I've worked over 100 hours, town is invaded with morons, I have 0 boards that aren't fucked up in some way shape or form to ride, my boots are done, and I have long sense forgotten what a good nights sleep is. This is my life my name is...

The worst by far.

When I'm going down the road on my motorcycle, I look in the mirror only to see someone in a car right on my fucking back wheel. I don't go the speed limit on the bike, I cannot handle riding at only 35 mph, it's so boring, but even if I'm 10 to 15 over the speed limit, there will be the occasional retard on my ass. I mean seriously wtf are they thinking? Does staring at my back wheel get them somewhere faster? Is it worth killing someone over?

I'm not the type to throw shit over my shoulder at thier car (not yet anyways, I'm warming up to the idea), but I've found a new way. I reach into my pocket, turn and pretend like I'm throwing a handful of something onto the road just behind my back wheel, and then fucking take off down the road. Once they back off it's quite funny, I see alot of swerving, slamming on their brakes, and the mouth-wide-open-shock look.

Amen. I've found that most if not all people will back off the speed before I do when I go to pass. I got some guy up to 75-almost 80 in a 45mph zone before he realized I wasn't slowing down till he let me over. Then I politely wave thanks, it pisses them off even more.
