2. Good Gawd - quit typing while you are driving!
:wow: Are you mad!

Keep both hands on the steering wheel at the 3:00 o'clock an 9:00 oclock position and keep your eyes on the road ahead of you!

Be safe! :hi:

10. It's only safer than apply mascara.
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 12:07 PM by merh
Blush and lipstick are no brainers when driving!

Mascara can be deadly, have you every poked yourself in the eye with that wand? Oh my gawd, hot pokers can't hurt that much. x(

21. Damn!
I've been doing it wrong all of these years! :mad:

I want to find my driver's ed instructor and have a word or two with him! It was bad enough he locked me in the trunk of the car, now __ years later, I find he taught me the wrong hand placement! :argh:

:shrug: Do you think he was trying to get rid of me! :shrug:

4. Unless the ambulance is rushing a pharmacist who refuses to dispense
birth control perscriptions.

OK, just kidding. My brother was a paramedic in Southern California for years, I know your pain from observation. I yell at idiots like that all the time. "Hey, move over, dipshit! They might just be trying to save somebody you love!"

9. Emergency vehicles should be equipped with brush breakers on the front
And teach those drivers some of those "pit" maneuvers I see on Cops.

11. is it being blocked by a prayer circle?
you have to watch out for those - they often get in the way of providing medical assistance... :evilgrin:

17. That's a serious pet peeve of mine, too. And, if they just didn't
"notice" the ambulance, they should be ticketed for inattentive driving.

18. seriously...what is wrong with people?
I used to drive a delivery truck...one day, I was sitting at a red light, heard a siren, saw an ambulance coming (about a block or so up at this point, heading down the street I was waiting to cross)...so, the light turns green and some asshole behind me starts honking his horn--ambulance a block away, mind you--and then just whips around me into the intersection, actually making the ambulance slam on brakes so as not to hit him, and just goes his merry way. Amazing!

20. Always hoped it would be their house
that they didn't want me to get to right away. Some of the few things that you could count on while driving a Fire Truck. People who wouldn't get out of the way, people who claimed you were driving way faster than the truck could go, and people who swore it took hours for you to get there.
