Its like they thing they own the god dam road because there car is so dam good for the environment. I swear I almost got into an accident today because some jackass in a volt thought he owned the road and when he was trying to merge into my lane instead of waiting to get into behind me; there was no one being me so he basically risked both of our lives to save maybe half a second. It was already to late for me to slow down to let him in because i was already a little past the end of the merge lane and instead of him stopping I had to swerve into the next lane over to avoid the collision. And the thing was he actually sped up just to try to get hit me. I was fuming and when i pulled up beside him the dude has shades on; my god it is freaking raining harder than a mother and the sky is so dam dark and had a bluetooth in his ear talking to someone and he was texting someone.
I thoroughly enjoy cutting off Prius' (what is the plural of Prius?) in my V8 powered 4X4 especially when they have California license plates. I'm not against saving the environment mind you, but that is just extreme to me and you are right, they have this attitude that they are better than everybody else or that they have a right to drive like a bafoon because they get good gas mileage.
Anyway, sorry we got this off topic! I just wanted to point out that the rest of the world has Chip + PIN cards and a large assortment of clean burning turbo diesel engines that we just don't get here.
