    Why are other drivers so freaking rude to service vans? I've been cut off, flipped off and pissed off. The past 2 weeks have been unusually bad. Maybe its the holidays IDK. Drivers going 15 over busting thier ass to get in a short space in front of you while there is no one behind you in an exit lane. Some speed up to the car in front of them to try and keep you from merging on the highway. I've had cars speed across parking lots and blow stop signs to get in front of me. It's freaking BS. WTF I got some place to go too. They know you're not going to do anything and just take it because you're driving a billboard and they'll just call in on you. I was on call last week and it was just a bad driving week. Everyone was being an asshole. Its not just me I see it happening to other service vans. I'm going home to drink a cold one. Rant over.

    Go to the salvage yard and find an old bent up crash bumper for the front. Makes them think twice when they see you aint scared to run into shit.

    And most the time with people cutting in front of you it’s because the dumb ****s are texting on their phones.

    I worked at a prison a while back, and we rode around in there on a golf cart.

    If one of the inmates stepped in front of us I swear the guard driving would have run them over with the golf cart.

    Shitty drivers are all over. It does suck to not even be able to flip the bird.

    I've found San Antonio to be the absolute worse to try and get around in. Worse traffic I've ever been in!

    Only been called in once and I asked the lady that took the call if she got a name and phone number of the driver, she said no. I said it's not a legitimate complaint if they won't give their number so I can call them and discuss it.
