Car trouble

Family OTW are as is our usual practise driving the highways and byways of California in the biggest car I can hire...childishly thumbing our noses at Al Gore and his disciples. When in England and occasionally in America the topic of driving here comes up, one question is always asked first.That question is the obvious....."do I find it difficult to adapt to driving on the right?" to many peoples surprise my answer invariably is..."no,but Americans do!" just what is it with people here?....any car lot or multi story carpark seems to come replete with idiots hurtling around corners on the wrong side of the road......wake up idiots!...if you hit my car you will find out quite quickly why England is infamous for its football hooligans,armed or not you will be punished!....but rest assured my English good manners should help the perpetrator feel chastised by a cultured individual.

Poor driving is evidence of the decline of civility and increased self-importance of ignorant louts.
It's the Walkman Generation who are inwardly focused and oblivious.
