Sometimes she goes, sometimes she don't, that's just the way she goes.

I'm absolutely baffled by how many vehicles in Calgary are going along with only one or no functioning brake lights.

Or completely forget to turn their lights on!  Most of the population got to work and return to work when its dark (right now).  Turn your lights on!

While this is frustrating, it doesn't bother me anywhere near as much as people who can't signal. Drives me nuts, and it is so common.

Also another that really pisses me off is trucks without mud flaps. We have enough rocks and itshay on the road, at least have some respect for those around you.

I have sooooo many pet peeves with drivers, I just gave up because it is not worth it:
Signal light issues: Not using at all, want to change lanes when next to me but will not signal intention (I am not a mind reader)
Illegal lane changes: Crossing solid lines (missed exit ramps, construction zone no passing, etc...)
Speed Issues: Speeding waaayyy too fast (Crow is 80kph not 120), way too slow, inconsistent speed (50 kph variations).
Tailgating: You're an sholeasay (already got hit by one of these late last year)
Weaving: It's calgary, there is lots of traffic, you're not saving time
Brake riding: Get off the damn brakes, no wonder you all complain about how often you have to get your brakes done.
Just being a compete idiot: Wrong way in a traffic circle or driving like there is no lanes in a traffic circle, not knowing how to merge, not shoulder checking, cutting me off

Anyway, I gave up, I just drive like everyone is a mindless ishtay, I expect everyone to hit my car. (Just for the record I have never had an at fault accident or even gotten a ticket in my life (almost 20 yrs driving), and yes I do speed (who doesn't?) Just gotta know when, where and how to do it).

Shocker tho: defensive driving actually works.
I almost get hit monthly in traffic circles, the beauty of their design is that its easy to avoid.
I also never expect anyone to turn a corner and go into the correct lane, which can annoy people behind me when im making a right turn into a two lane street while others are making lefts from the other direction. but hey, uckyfay. its saved my assay so many times.

Crested a hill on highway 20 doing 105km/h to find a minivan traveling 35 km/h. Road conditions were good and there was no turns on or off the highway for a few km. Finally able to pass after a few km of following it and it's a 80-90 year old woman just dogging it.

Stay off the road if you can't travel at an appropriate speed

I just do not understand why sometimes it is so difficult to buy something from a retailer.
Honestly I'm sitting here not only willing to buy but actively trying to buy your item and all you can do is come up with road blocks.

Trying to buy a desk I saw on the floor of a staples. Call in, they don't have any in stock. "what about the one you have?" oh its a floor model and we can't sell it to you. "well can you bring one in?" yeah but it will be 3-4 weeks probably. "ok nvm". Go online to staples.ca...theres lots in stock. Order one. Email saying "ups is the delivery agent in your area and due to limits in size and weight they cannot deliver this item as they only have a single driver. We cancelled your order we hope this does not inconvenience you". Well of course it uckfayin inconveniences me you daft untcay that's literally the only thing I wanted. Ok FINE. I'll just order it to the store I think. I'll just pick it up and hopefully whatever braindead manager I was talking to before receives it and feels like an a hole.... Boom same email. I reply with "ARE YOU TELLING ME THAT YOU CANNOT DELIVER A DESK TO YOUR STORE THAT SELLS DESKS".
I get a response "for any customer service inqueries, please contact your local branch at xxx-xxx-xxxx.

uckfayin so mad.

Also i am trying to force myself to read atlas shrugged but honestly it reads like a uckfayin 12 year old boy with an executive dad who is never home wrote it as fanfic. It's truly the definition of whinging. It's so bad. Just like content matter aside. So bad. But maybe it's inspiring me to have less respect for people who can't do their uckfaying jobs.
Nah, that's been pretty much bottomed out for the past 7 years.

Atlas Shrugged is skippable. The Fountainhead has an uncomfortably long rape scene.

is it at least readable?

If i have to read another half-chapter about how the protagonist is a tall dark handsome capitalist who is very tired but just always had a penchant for getting things done and loves a challenge and the opportunity to really throw themselves into their work but nobody really understands them, im going to uckfaying kill myself.

Reading? ullbayitshay, you're from Australia. We all know you're an illiterate criminal. Don't pretend like you're over here all learning to read and itshay.

The only reason you'd pick up something made of paper would be for titties printed on it.

Atlas Shrugged is the first and only book I've ever stopped reading halfway through.

I tried, I honestly did. But it was such a chore, I couldn't do it.

You really don't want to read the Fountainhead then.
