It was cold in London today and I’m grumpy so…
What is the deal with minicab drivers? How can somebody spend all day, every day driving a car and be so ****ing bad at it? I mean, really, they are utterly useless, quite the worst of all the “professional” road users, IMO.
I wouldn’t mind so much but the Hackney Carriage drivers are some of the best road users so it’s not just the job
Also, why can’t drivers just put their mobile phones down and stop attempting to use them while moving? I’ve seen HGV drivers do this as well, and some particularly brainless scooter riders — I questioned one about the dangers (and the 6 points on your licence) but he just laughed and said they’d have to catch him first… then he pulled out of the junction without checking properly and almost got hit by a car
The road is a harsh teacher in my experience and tends to use pain as a motivating force so I suppose it all averages out in the end but boy does it annoy me.
I feel better now
