    Flash high in the bright sunshine, cut them off at night. I have my mirrors angled so I can't see the lights in them unless I move my head for this reason. A lot of 4 wheelers have been driving around with their high beams on all the time lately. It's so tempting to hit the loading lights back at them.

    I agree with you there, it's such a common courtesy that so many people forget and alot of guys wont even hold the door for a woman anymore.
    Here's one for you. I was coming out of the truck stop and this guy and his girl were coming in, my hands were full and I waited for them, she held the door and waited and the guy just went right through talking away without a care in the world. The girl continued to hold the door for me even after I motioned for her to come inside.

    Ebola Guy stole my thunder. I am one of them drivers that are restricted to 64mph. Nothings worse then having your cruise set at top speed and here comes someone at 70+.. i give the nice courtesy flash and they slide in front me.. THEN SLOW DOWN.... now i gotta kick off my cruise. And i cant go around because im right at the max for my truck. So annoying.

    KEEP BURNING THOSE FOG LIGHTS!
    Makes it so much easier to avoid the "little fish" out here in the big pond :yes2557:

    I never slow down after I pass you guys...But tell me this, Why do you slow fleet drivers wait till I'm ten feet off of your trailer in the hammer lane doing 20 MPH faster than you to whip it in front of me so you can spend the next 30 minutes having a slow race with the other slug that was 200 yards in front of you when you cut me off?


    'Cause it happens all the time!

    I see that happen allot and i agree. If i was in your place that would definitely piss me off. I make it a point to wait until it is completely clear before going around someone and if it means im going to impede traffic, i wait. I cant count how many times i had to back out because the truck im attempting to pass sped up. Us restricted fleet drivers are not all idiots even though it may seem that way from time to time.:biggrin_25522:

    The other irritating thing is when you're running along on cruise control and you've been slowly gaining on a truck for a few minutes and as soon as you change lanes to pass him he speeds up.

    I will usually fall back in behind and shure as hell the guy will slow back down and when I go to pass him again he'll do the same thing...That's when they get to see that the black W900 isn't governed.

    But you've gotta wonder why people feel that have to do stuff like that.

    I think it's simply to be a jerk. Or they are just not paying attention.
