I hate summer people.

I just got home from the store where a dumb woman driving a giant esclade from NYC that got her licence in a cracker jack box wiped out the side of my new Tacoma. It seems these people come out for the weekend during the summer from manhattan where they never drive and wreak havoc on my local roads. I can't wait until labor day when alot of these idiots go home. Anyone else deal with this? I bet Cappy feels the same way. I would wish they would leave and never come back but they are my livelihood.

That sounds frustrating. Tourist do seem to drive fast when they visit here.

The one that blows my mind is when they are all walking side by side and strolling in a whole lane of road. "This is such a cute country road"...then I almost take out a family of five when I come around a blind corner.

But as frustrated as I get I do like people here on vacation. They are usually in a good mood.

Sounds like what is see driving on 120 between oakdale n manteca. The people from the bay area always in a big rush to get to the next red light. gotta love every blue moon either CHP, Stanistlaus or San Joaquing deputies giving out a donation slip to the coffers of the state of CA.

I know what you mean when I am down in Buxton, NC (which 2-3 times a month) The torons make driving slow, cause they are not what side road to take, or they act like they have never seen the sound and the ocean so close together.

The other thing is when they think they can take there nice car out on the beach when there are signs that say 4X4 is needed. I had to stop and take a picture. They are not stuck that bad, but I kept on going cause the spanish where chewing the point off.

I see that a few times a year too. I will pull them out for $20 but they have to hook up the rope.

I just hate stupid people period.
Come to think of it I detest most people in general.
Maybe I should get a job in the local DMV office.
