After a second or two, the offender passes by me (because he turned into the wrong lane since he was turning from the wrong lane to begin with) and I gave him the ****ing finger. I swear I was so ****ing livid.
I'm having a little trouble understanding this, but I lol'd at this

Alright. There's are a couple drivers behind me when I'm stopped in a right turn lane at a red light (One of those "No right turns allowed on red" intersections) that was just about to go green. When it went green, I was having trouble going since I kept stalling the engine. The drivers behind me started honking after the second time I stalled. I stalled once more and then the 4th time I was able to go. Just as I started going, the guy behind me pulled into the lane beside me abruptly and was then beside me and tried turning and almost cut me off, so I slammed the gas and turned right to get out of trouble. After a few seconds, he passed by me and I gave him the finger as he was passing me by.

Ah, okay.

Yeah, standard can be tricky but once you learn it, it's almost like second nature Lol.

Why don't you go practice in an empty parking lot until you get it right and are confident enough not to mess up in traffic?

I have been for the past few weeks and am continuing to do so. This was only my 3rd time in traffic and the first 2 times I've been fine apart from the occasional stall. Just have to get a feel for it.

Do you drive a standard?

I have in the past yes. Not anymore though since it's a pain in the rear in traffic and my drive to and from work is very congested.

Practice in an empty parking lot until you can do it smoothly. Also try to find a hill, maybe in a rural area where you can practice getting started on an inclined plane. There's nothing worse than coming to a stop light at the top of a hill if you have never tried it in manual transmission.

Ridiculous though

Also ... So much for staying sober last night ... One of those 'accidentally got hammered' with my neighbours at their place .. Good news is their hot tub got fixed
I don't even think they are going to show it though. The feeds were down and everything.. 100% not part of the show.. That's why I wanted to share because I don't even know they are going to mention what happened.. But he snapped right out.. Craziness.. Pretty much cheering for Shane or one of the cute girls..

@ SS2.. Buddy of mine works at the Beer Store.. Recommended I try it.. Says its awesome.

TDKR was good. It was a step below TDK, but it was still a good ending to the series.

The first half is a little too slow for me, but the ending makes up for it. Probably gonna see it again on a Tuesday.

it was a tad bit slow yea. Bane's character towards the end took a hit due to the "reasoning"
