What my new job should be.

I want the state, no, Federal government to create a new job position for me. Director of Bad Driver Pointer Outer. Yes. I want to be the official person to point out dumb ass slow drivers and take away their licences. My opinion will be it. No appeals. No arguing. If I catch you driving stupid and/or slow, that's it. No licence forever.

There's ~one~ exception though. The use of the "I'm-a-dumbass" hand movement. We all get distracted and make stupid mistakes driving. We swerve, we cut off, we just do stupid things. IF, and only if you raise your hand and wave after doing something, therefore using the aforementioned "I'm-a-dumbass" hand wave, you will be absolved.

I'm going to put together my resume right now.

(by the way, thank you to all who have answered my last post. The comments are overwhelming and I'm just happy as ever to have gotten the response that I have! If you haven't responded yet, please do so!)

Sounds like a good job that's totally needed. I saw at least 5 people on my way home from work that needed their licenses taken away.

If you need as assistant please let me know. I would love to help you!

It really pisses me off when I let someone in and they don't give me the wave. Even if it's over the shoulder because they can't take their eyes off the road... I still notice!

I hope you include the dumb ass BMW drivers who enter an intersection and murder a little Prius in the license revocations.

Larissa said...

Wow, that's a awesome idea! You can totally put me down as a reference!

Jendeis said...

I think my husband would fight you for the job. No less than three times a day he calls me ranting about the idiots he comes across on the road. I think him being in a truck just attracts them.

And I use the 'i'm a dumbass' gesture when I do something.

What I hate is when I let someone cut in or let them over and I don't get the 'hey' sign like saying thanks. makes me want to bump draft 'em.

Since they need lots of those, I will get the equivalent job here in Indiana. I get so rage-y at the bad drivers here, but all I do is talk to them loudly while I sit alone in my car.

Director of Bad Driver Pointer Outer...omg, I love it!

jenn said...

Can I be the east coast director? The non-wave is one of my biggest pet peeves!!! I have a funny/scary story about it actually that scared the crap out of my best friend & almost got a car driven into a barrier... I may have to post it if I get a chance!

JamieD said...

It is amazing all the things a good ol' courtesy wave will forgive. I think that is what pisses me off the most - not the bad driving but the failure to give a "Whoops!! So sorry!!"

If the position came into being, my husband would be your top competition!

Birdee said...

LMAO. Can I be your filmographer (word?) and we can have a Nancy Reality TV Show?
