Bad drivers!

People that tailgate drive me insane...I just drive slower as they will not make me speed up!

I agree. Makes me crazy. Most of the offenders are younger in my experience.

Yes, I agree with you Andy! The majority are certainly young drivers

They get so close behind and try to intimidate you into speeding up, it is very frustrating

If they drive into the back of my car, I am totally covered...and I will make sure they pay!! Grrrr, getting all angry just talking about it

Tailgaters drive me bonkers too. Yesterday it was tailgating day. I'm sorry, I should be able to see your headlights in my rear view mirror. If you tailgate me, it makes me nervous. When I'm nervous I slow down.

The last time my wrist felt like this, the doctor said it was an inflammation. I don't want to aggravate it. Does anyone know if an Ace type bandage would be a good idea?

Yes, an ace wrap will help splint it, ibuprofen for the inflammation if you can tolerate it.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I can tolerate ibuprofen, but it doesn't do anything. ASA (aspirin in Yankee) doesn't bother me. I prefer not to take any meds I don't need. Is this one of those cases where the med fixes the problem, so it's worth doing? Would ASA be a good idea? I have actually never noticed any benefit from anything I have ever taken for inflammation, except the last time. I got Voltaren, but that's pretty strong stuff. I still have some. It says "Discard 2013/07/03". I wonder if that would be a good idea, maybe ask the pharmacist.

Aspirin is an anti-inflammatory. I'd take it.

Now I'm a very patient person, but the whole receipt checking thing at the BJ's club store (like Sam's club, Costco etc..) just got on my nerves today.

I stopped in an got a few things and checking out was a breeze with self checkout, but the line at the door was at least 20 deep, and with a busy day I just wasn't crazy about standing there.

I usually avoid shopping on weekends because the stores are crazy and only going to get crazier the closer we get to the holidays.

I was really tempted to walk out with my receipt flying like a flag, and challenge them to do anything about it. But I stood there patiently like a good little sheep while, on the busiest day of the week they still had one receipt checker...

Like there is anything there that I could stuff up my shirt and try to get out the door with!
