Does it P!$$ you off when you see people driving & texting?

I seriously can't stand it & it aggravates the crap out of me. My hubby does it & i keep telling him he needs to stop because anything could happen but he thinks it's different for him & he's got skills. He is starting to listen somewhat & doesn't do it that much anymore or around me.

  • My family and I, all four of us, were nearly hit in a Wal*Mart parking lot by some high maintenance teen girl who was texting while backing out of a parking stall. Then, she nearly hit us AGAIN trying to text, shift gears, plug in her damn phone and do who know what else. I wish I had a baseball bat I could have taken to her hood to get her attention.

    Yes it pisses me off.

    By the way, my husband is 6'2", I'm 5'6", my son is close to 5'0, and my daughter is 3'6" or so. WE'RE NOT SMALL PAY ATTENTION B*TCH!!!!!

    Oops, sorry *stuffs anger back in it's box.

  • SweetPoison - A lot of them have close calls and never even know it! It terrifies me, and nice with the honking at the one driver! :-D Hopefully it woke them up a bit.

    I don't know how many accidents I have avoided at this point from people texting, even talking on the phone! It's scary and they don't even notice that they almost caused an accident. a few time I have wondered if I should have just let them hit my car so they see what their actions bring but I don't want to have to deal with my insurance going up because of them and dealing with having to fix my car. Urg they drive me crazy.

  • Yes it does piss me off!! People just need to put there phones down and keep there eyes and ears on the road!! Nothing is that important for them to be on there phone not paying attention to what is going on around them.
