i love america. i love americans. i do not love the fact that (most) americans haven't the foggiest idea how to use a roundabout (yeah, yeah "traffic circle"). really, it's not that difficult. and it's so much more efficient because it keeps traffic moving (again, if you know how to use it).
yesterday, i had a near collision at the roundabout on cherokee road. i had already entered it when a woman (bloody women drivers anyway), pulled out and was apparently wanting to engage in a game of roundabout "chicken". driving in the middle east has trained me to be very defensive when operating a vehicle, however this was not acceptable roundabout behavior, so i proceeded, as i was legally allowed to do so. she, in turn, proceeded to drive right up my arse (that'll teach me) and maintained no stopping distance whatsoever the entire way down the road until i turned off at the park. this is the kind of behaviour i expect from a 17 year old in a honda civic, not a middle aged house wife in a gold hyundai.
you know what else? i don't like peanut butter and jelly, or reese's peanut butter cups. go ahead, revoke my greencard- i hid it in the marmite.
