On Annoying Drivers

philippines rant humor personal

I hate slogging through Manila traffic. It’s a horrible waste of time to spend an hour on an otherwise ten minute trip. What’s worse - there are drivers who think that being a good driver means that you gain five seconds at the expense of multiple minutes for everyone else.

After a couple of years of this madness, I’ve had just about enough of it, and the only way I can release my road rage is here. I’ve isolated five of the most annoying types of drivers that make me want to pull my hair out.

These drivers are probably the type of people who just can’t stand in one place. They think they can save time by stupidly inching forwards at a red light intersection. They waste gas, block the pedestrian lane, and obstruct my view of the oncoming traffic. If they are behind you on an uphill slope, you basically have to power forward just to avoid hitting them.

Where they are: Everywhere, especially in BGC.

Annoying factor: 2/5
