I moved to Philly at 22 and really learned how to drive. Some bitch hit me last month when she was merging into my lane. She was going to hit me so I slammed on the breaks and hit the horn and she kept coming and ending up hitting me. When she got out of her car, she starts yelling "Didn't you see my blinker!? It gives me right of way!" I asked "Didn't you see my car? My car trumps your fucking blinker." I hate driving in Denver, especially the roundabouts in Lowry. Talk about people not paying attention.
