trust me, it gets worse. Just when you think you've seen everything, they'll find yet another way to get you. 99% of these people would die on something like th 5 or 405. Literally, they'd be shot dead on the spot.
Lol. I already saw at least two drunk drivers too. Let's not forget about them. So I'm assuming you adjusted to life here already?

I agree. I recently moved here from Louisiana, and now I see folks in Louisiana's cities drive WAY better than folks in San Antonio. It took a month or two of anger and mumbled cursing at the dumb traffic here before I just learned to accept it. You ALWAYS have to try to account for idiotic maneuvers by everyone else on the road here.

Adjusted might be a little too strong of a word.. I've lived here for 10+ years and I guess I just expect it now. It's like it feels wrong when there isn't someone in your way or driving like they have no clue what they're doing, drunk, or just plain rude as hell.

What aggravates me most often is people who drive slowly in the left lane, and NEVER get over. I guess that rule of thumb doesn't apply here at all.

I'm starting to like SA allot more than LA. Now if I could Just throw a nuke in my apartment building that I just moved to so that I could kill the dinosaur roaches that live here with me!. Not only that, we have two kinds: the black small ones and the huge red flying ones, and that's after extensively looking for a decent place to freaking rent. Is there any apartment building that doesn't have them? I have been to three and they all had them, but this one is way worse dammit. After my 6 month lease is done, guess what? i'm out!
