Angry Driver

As you know, everyone’s horrible at driving except you.  You’re perfect.  “Consumer Reports” just released the results of a survey where people ranked the 20 most annoying things other drivers do on a scale of one to 10.  The one that ticks me off the most came in at #4 on the list.  Where does yours rank?

And the most annoying behavior is . . . texting while driving.  It got an average score of 8.9 out of 10.  That puts it just ahead of able-bodied people parking in handicapped spots, which got an 8.7.

The least annoying thing was the only item on the list connected to the radio, because radio is a fantastic and flawless medium.  People who crank the volume on their radio too high only averaged a 5.7 out of 10 for annoyingness.  So, turn it up.
