Are You an Idiot? Nefarious James on Giving Thanks

Well, Yee-haw! Here we are in November. Almost the end of another year. So I sit here thinking to myself about the month of November. It happens to be the month that we celebrate Thanksgiving. A holiday for which we celebrate the obvious, and that is… thanks. It could be thanks for many things. Happenings that have gone on or just being thankful for being alive. Read any posts on social media and we will see how many people and loved ones others including ourselves lose every day. So that being said, take a moment and think about all of the good things that have gone on with your life this year and try not to focus on the negative. Easier said than done I know, but what the hell, give it a shot.

With the holidays just around the bend, I can’t help but have a topic come to mind that really burns my ass. And that’s how I will start this month’s dissertation. The topic is the way a lot of individuals out there drive like they’ve never driven a vehicle before and are complete morons without any respect, courtesy, or regard for those around them. Got an eye-opener for some of you out there, you’re not the only one on the road.

I’m talking about the morons who need to run up the merge lane and cut somebody off just so they could be the first loser at a traffic light without worrying about anyone else’s safety. You’re an idiot. To those who speed down the highway at twice the speed limit just so they can be first in line to sit on an exit ramp without worrying about who they’ve cut off along the way, you’re an idiot. To the one doing their make-up or are on the cell phone while thinking that they’re doing a good job driving, but in all actuality are either traveling half the speed limit or are all over the road, you’re an idiot. To the person on the highway who thinks it’s okay to do 10 miles per hour slower than the posted speed limit in the fast lane, you’re an idiot.

There are so many more examples I can end up reading out but I think you get the idea. These are the same people that are not watching what they’re doing or where they’re going and have no consideration for their fellow human being. Somebody in their head lied to them, telling them that they are the most special person on earth and everyone else doesn’t matter. I witnessed these massive acts of stupidity every day while I work on the roads. The amount of accidents and mishaps have increased leaps and bounds, and when it happens, those idiots try to blame everybody else when they are the cause.

We all like to say “watch out for motorcycles.” Well, many seem to forget when off your motorcycle and in that cage that you’re now the one everybody talks about that needs to watch out for those other motorcycles. I’m not saying every person out there is in the group I am describing. There are people out there who do drive responsibly. To them I say, thank you and keep up the good work. For the reckless ones who think they’re the only ones that matter out there, I have this to say, you’re an idiot.

Just remember that the roads are going to get busier as the tourists come back south and as the holidays come closer. I’m hoping that everyone has a safe and happy holiday season. For the ones that fit into the idiot category, I can only hope that your vehicle breaks down in the driveway and you have to take an Uber to your festivities. And hopefully, the driver you have is not an idiot.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all, and most of all, be thankful for what you have and for those positive people that you have in your life. This is Nefarious James signing off and wishing you all the very best that the holiday season has to give you. Remember that gifts come in many forms, not just material things.
