You know you’re in trouble when you’re on a road with 1 car in front of you and dozens of them behind you (and there aren’t funeral flags on anyone’s vehicle). It’s pretty obvious who the bottle-neck is!
And then sometimes, you get that person who speeds up to the green light, then hits their brakes to scan the territory then goes through the intersection. All the while, you’re wearing brake pads faster than a student driver in rush-hour traffic on Route 51.
We got the following email submission and the above pic about a driver on Christmas Day of all times:
Was following along behind this jagoff several miles…..guy was doing 35 in a 50 and refused to go any faster…..long stream of cars behind me…..I was following at a respectable distance…then the speed limit changed to 35…he dropped to 20 then would speed to 35 then to 20…..brake checking me several times….(or at least trying to…again, I wasn’t that close where it would matter) .
Then while going over some train tracks he abruptly jammed on his brakes, stopping me in the middle of the train tracks. All I can figure is he felt I was following too close? When I tried to go left around him he gassed it and blocked the way, then sped off to the right after I stopped. And on Christmas day yet. What a jagoff.
Yes… exactly the place to play “Cat and Mouse,” on the roads with a 4,000 lb vehicle. Thankfully they don’t build REAL cars like the Kennywood Bumper Cars… where, if ya turn the wheel all the way to one side, it goes backwards and bashes the car behind ya. This guy might have tried to use that function in some kind of My-girlfriend-who-I-just-spent-eighty-dollars-on-to-win-an-oversized-stuffed-animal-that-we-now-hate-carrying-around-the-park-is-in-this-car-next-to-me-so-I’m-gonna-play-tough-guy-driver move.
Merry Christmas! Santa was watching. Hope your car is coal powered, Ya Jagoff!

Yeah! A Two-fer special from our bud Jackie.
Two Block-blockers in two weeks. Seems she should get a prize for this but, we’re cheaper than your Uncle Stush who used to scotch-tape a dollar’s worth of nickles to the inside of your birthday card up until your 13th birthday.
The tweet with the top pic was:
Is this real life
And the intersection tweet was:
This is what we call a and a
Are we on the Kennywood Bumper cars? Is the guy in the top pic a 6-year old that doesn’t realize that, if you turn the wheel the entire way to the left or right the car goes into reverse? Is the car in the second pic a 14-year old boy friend/girl friend couple in matching sailor hats with their names on them where the male is trying to look “Doe” low-riding and just wants to sit there and get hit to see his girlfriend freak out?
Nope! These are just people who believe THEIR life is more important than everyone else who’s on the road. Because, as you know, sitting through the next red light makes a difference in you getting to the office 98-seconds faster than if you would have sat through the light!
I go back to the the original thought. If we had cops at these intersections, we could fund the City’s debt and pay off both stadiums and the Consol Energy Center.
Seriously though, are you the same people that stand in that critical space at the grocery store, the space between the end of the aisle and the cashiers, talking to your friends? Are you all middle-children-syndrome people looking for attention?
Get outta the way Ya Jagoffs!!!
