Idiot drivers

I'm on the road a lot every day, which means that I get to see my share of bad drivers. We all have lapses from time to time, but there are some people out there who just should not be driving.

Case in point:
Woman driving in right lane who decided to match my speed when I started to pass her. Kept that up for a couple of miles.

Guy who decided to tailgate me by less than a car length when he couldn't pass. I was doing 75MPH. Got pissed off when I flashed my brake lights and flipped me off.

Guy in a van who merged without looking, and forced me to swerve into another lane and almost hit another car.

Guy in the BMW S-class who got pissed off at me when I went to pass another vehicle and interfered with his traffic weaving. During rush hour on 394.

There are more, but enough ranting for now.

Weird thought of the day: Fritos bean dip looks an awful lot like cat food. Next party could be fun.

Cranky me.

Over 5000 source files, mostly uncommented.

Mixture of styles. Some C, some C++. Some prototypes declared in cpp files, some in the header files. Some with a mixture, where a file declares two classes, but only one is declared in the header.

Error checking that when an error hits in a particular location, the program just stops. No error message, no trace, no "hey, look, here's an error" indication at all. Just goes into an infinite loop. Not even commented.

Bah. I don't want to be working today.

I am pretty much fucking useless at work today. I got some stuff done this morning, and since then I've been mindlessly thrashing over Convergence stuff and the PFH. My body is stiff and sore, probably partly from the laying on the concrete to do the wiring-- hours of uncomfortable positions-- as well as the previous layers of soreness from all the ladder work. And really, half the company is out on vacation including my boss, so trying to get answers to questions is a lot of "I don't know" stuff. Frustrating.

My mind is wandering badly now. I think I'll go home. I'm not getting anything useful done here anyway.
