Default The way women drive makes me rage

I try to stay calm. I really do. But its extremely hard. Twice a week or so I go out to lunch with a couple female coworkers, one of them my manager, and she likes to drive. I don't mind it much since it saves on gas, except for one thing. The way she drives makes me want to blow my lid.

And really, its just the little things. Coming up to a light thats been green for a long time, and not speeding up from her paltry 30mph to make sure she catches it, and then it turns red JUST as we're approaching. And then when that light turns green, the one down the road turns red just as we get there, which would have been avoided had she sped up to make the first one in the first damn place.

Asking if she should turn at this light or the next one, and when I suggest doing it at this one since its green and the next one might be red, she goes to the next one anyway and OF COURSE it turns red and we have to wait again.

Looking left and right at an intersection over and over and over and over again before she turns when there's no one within a MILE in view.

Letting people go ahead of her when she has right of way and was there WAY before they were.

Telling us she's gonna try this new 'shortcut' back to the office and then making a turn in the OPPOSITE direction of where the office is, and then acting CONFUSED when the 'shortcut' takes 10 minutes longer to get back then the NORMAL way.

Being almost IN the intersection when the light turns from green to yellow and slamming on the brakes to stop anyway when she could have EASILY gone through before it turned red.

Complete lack of ability to quickly and conveniently park the car. You park 2 states away from the restaurant AND take up 2 spots? Really?

Lack of aggressiveness in general. JUST ****ING GO.

I know there's been threads on this but i'm still seething over today and I needed to vent. A lot of this seems like its no big deal but when you're in the car with them you add everything up and it snowballs.

Preach it, brother!

I HATE the way women drive. Especially when you're in a situation like yours, where you cant even say what youre thinking.

I try to drive every time I have to carpool with people. And I absolutely refuse to sit in ANYONE'S backseat for any reason whatsoever anymore. The front seat isnt much better if you dont care for the driver's style. But theres just something about sitting in the backseat of a sh*tty driver's car that makes me want to fly into a rage.

Everybody drive differently. I drive fast + furious and lots of people don't like it. Too bad, you're in my car, you gonna have to accept the way I drive.

If it really bothers you then suggest taking the journey via your car.

I usually do. But this is my boss, and sometimes she wants to take us out to lunch and she wants to drive us. And then thats how it is. I just have a huge problem with her lack of any aggression WHATSOEVER. And I can't flip out like I want to because I work for her. Sitting at a stoplight and thinking "we could already be there twice over if this b!tch had any balls" is pretty frustrating.

I'm usually in the passenger side because i'm the tallest of the passengers, but it doesn't make me rage any less. If anything it makes it worse because I have a drivers view and i'm sitting there the whole time thinking "could have made that light", "should have made that turn", "didnt have to let that dude over", etc. etc.

No sarcasm. Jersey drivers are very good drivers and I'd be willing to bet that Jersey ranks in the top 5 in lowest accident rate per capita in the country.
