Pick A Lane Jagoff!!!

This was the tweet with the above photo:

This was on Rt 65-N this morning in rush-hour traffic. Was in the right lane for a while then decided to switch lanes (neither lane was moving as there was a red light). Sat straddling the lanes for 5 mins until the light turned green and  left no room for anyone to pass him.

Who hasn’t seen this?  The driver, in a big hurry, just has to switch lanes RIGHT NOW and block everyone else from moving forward up either lane.  Sometimes you even see this on the Fort Pitt Bridge heading outbound or just before the Squirrel Hill tunnel entrance outbound.

This is exactly why this blog was created… to call out the people, like this driver, that are full of self-importance, without regard to other Pittsburghers.

Hey Range-Rover-Grover, yep, we see your fancy car.  And we’re pretty sure that you have to get ahead of everyone because you have something pressing at a very swanky office where everyone knows you’re the boss and you’re important.  BUT.. in traffic, we all put our driving gloves (and our pants) on the same way. There’s no class war between right and left lanes of traffic.

Did anyone ever teach you the art of driving in traffic, activating your turn signal, looking for a spot in your side view mirror and gradually sliding over into the next lane? Ahhh who needs skill and courtesy when you’re driving anyway?

We’re taking a WILD GUESS and presuming that you’re the same person that walks through the mall, yakking on the cell phone, and suddenly stops DEAD in front of a line of people because you’re making a point in your conversation..you know.. when it looks like a bad Bunny-Hop Line Dance accident!

The rest of us would like to get to where we’re going too so, unless you’re part of the Steelers Offensive Line and you’re PAID to block up all of the lanes, pick a lane Ya Jagoff!

That Little Engine That Just Gave Up

YJ-Butscher

Location: McIntyre Square (Pittsburgh North Hills)

Is this a car that just ran out of gas or broke down?  There’s now t-shirt or rag hanging from the window and no note.

Is this a bad night of drinking turned in to a “Where in the hell did I leave my car?” scenario?

Is it someone who failed the concept of “parallel” in geometry or someone who ALMOST mastered the concept of perpendicular?

My thought?

This is one of those older guys who drove “The Mrs.” to the mall to get a few things and chose to sit in the car vs. going into the store and sleeping on a chair. However, “The Mrs.” ran a little too long so he had to go head in and take his hourly pee.

I dunno.  What are YOUR thoughts on what this is?  (Comment Below and be sure to end it with…..YA JAGOFF!)

A Non-sign-readin’ Suburban Jag

YJ-Driveway

Got this on our Instagram account.  Part of the Instagram message was:

I happened upon this fockery on my way home from work while sitting in traffic.  All I could think of was “jagoff” and had to share.

Ahhhhh probably too busy reading emails on their phone to read any signs that might be on the road.  You can understand the lack of focus and the importance of it, right?  Maybe we just need to use our jaggoffestrator in real-life traffic reporting… us and Jay Caulfield from the Pens broadcasts!  And then Jay runs their licence plates and then pounds a fist into their car hood!

Get the phone outta yer hand, use your turn signals, stop alternatively flooring the gas/slamming on your brakes and look at the signs on the road, Ya Jagoff!!!
