I don't remember who was the guy on this forum that gave a great advice which I try to follow.
In situations like this assume the a--holes have a reason of doing what they do, assume they are you grandkids that are not all that experienced and don't know any better. Not easy but try your best. It keeps you sane.

Back in Jersey there was a place on 287 where the traffic was bumper to bumper for a few miles. The right lane was "exit only" for at least 3/4 mile. Jerk after jerk was riding it to the end and then try to cut in front of the other drivers.
I refused to let them in front of me.
Sometimes I completely blocked drivers from passing on the right when the lane was ending soon and they had to merge left. They were informed long before, but they chose to keep going ahead and cut in front of others.
I learned neither is good for my health and Im not in a hurry any longer, so I create an excuse for the a---hole. Maybe his momma is sick

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

All the other cars on the road are just obsticals. Every one that drives Faster than Me is CRAZY, and every one who drives Slower than Me is an IDIOT. , This applies no matter the mood or hurry or not that i'm in..

I drive way to fast to worry about my cholesterol

Last Saturday I planned on doing nothing all day, and by noon, I was half way done!

Call the corporate customer service number. Ask to speak to a representative responsible for the fleet or a phone number. Corporate Phone Number: 1-800-925-6278

Everyone here is blaming it on the drivers. Maybe it's the cars that are up to no good.

A couple days ago an autonomous Uber car took out a pedestrian.

Hopefully the link will work.

I already tried that and like I said I never got to speak to a human.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Will do, tomorrow, it's already after working hours. I thought I might get a # off another WalMart trailer but haven't seen one lately.

That's what they get for jaywalking.

Enjoy the Little things in life because some day you'll realize those were the Big things!
