Need more Rageahol
As a Learner driver, what is sure to bring out the insanely violent spastic ocelot that is anger is assuredly other drivers. In my brief hours so far of being on the roads, I've encountered:
-Telepathic drivers who presumably think everyone else is able to pick up on their brainwaves so that they don't need to indicate.
-Silver Mercedez that overtake whilst the care ahead is waiting at a T junction, pulling out into fast moving traffic all whilst talking on their mobile phone.
-cars that not only drive on the wrong side of the road, but will accelerate when they get closer to you.
-so many people who have a different speedometer to mine, so that 30 for them corresponds to 60 on mine. I see far too many people pulling away into the distance despite me driving at the limit.

I'm really looking forward to passing my test, just so I can then stop driving.

Also, organised religion, specifically ignorant people in organised religion. If in discussion the reasons as to why one joined such a religious body comes up, at any point should the phrase "Millions of people can't be wrong" be spoken then I may be obliged to offer a dandruff salad with a side order of "fuck you". Following the herd is not a good reason to justify your moral and ethical reasoning, especially when you're part of a relatively small religion like the Church of England. If "Millions of people can't be wrong", then why aren't they all part of the biggest religion in numerical terms? Islam is now bigger than Catholicism, should the pope convert? If the Chinese state enforced their state religion of Atheism on their populace, does that mean the numerists will drop their Jesus worship as 1.3 billion people can't be wrong apparantly? I suppose the totally bollocks statements is what really sets me off, as in they can say stuff like that seriously and it might not get questioned.
Also the whole "believing in something that if actually proved would undermine the whole belief system" and the claims of "we are the one true religion, not them over they who are almost exactly identical except for their different coloured hats, those bastards!" doesn't help calm me down either.
