Thanks for yelling, but I don't need you or anybody else to tell me what to do. I enjoy visiting the forums and posting my opinions. You have the right to post your opinions, just like I have the right to post mine. What I do with my time is none of your business. It's called a discussion forum, not an "I'm going to sum everything up for everybody" forum.
I am very glad that nobody was hurt. That is the most important thing, however I'm tired of men bashing women drivers. That is why I chose to respond to this thread, not to get into a fight.

Have a pleasant night.

You should keep an eye on Vincent. He's a Twinkie.

Please shut up and take your T*T for Tats somewhere else. Who cares. Silly bullshi@ to argue about. Now both of you just go away. Man and you both slept last night and still woke up to "I want the last word" How stupid.

Whatever...

Seems like you wanted the last word...oh well, I don't care if I have the last word, but when somebody verbally attacks me, I need to defend myself - regardless if it's the 'last word' or not.

Have you even looked around the rest of the forums here? There are plenty of arguments that are going on everywhere. Discussing a topic is NOT BS...name calling is, however a discussion is not.

Now you have a great day!

Yes, "Thanksfully" "noone" (whatever that is, or do you mean "no one") was hurt. All thanks to the bus driver "clearing being in control". Take a breathalyzer test before you drive.
Picky picky picky, clearly you understood what gerie was saying, right? You are just perfect we can all tell.
Take a deep breath relax don't worry so much about making an a@@ out of somebody, all too eager.
Be thankful everyone is fine, remember accidents DO happen.

i was at an intersection as a bus was coming from my left, the driver had the 4 -ways on, but the sun was shining on the left one and i couldnt see it blinking, to me i thought the bus was making a right turn(small intersection)so i pulled out to give the bus room to turn. that is when i could see the other turn signal flashing. the bus had its 4-ways on for no ? reason. lucky the bus stoped, the driver was very mad. my fault? ya had to be there! ive been driving truck since the 70's, so things do happen by ACCIDENT.
I can tell you what that was most likely about, buses have to put their 4 ways on for a lot of reasons such as going around construction, or the biggest when doing a railroad crossing they have to be on, so alot of times yes they are left on by accident, with a whole bunch of children behind you this can happen. However you should never count on a drivers turn signal for just that reason, it could be left on by accident or a turn from up the road that just wasn't a hard enough turn to turn the signal back off. My guess with the whole thing is that the guy was running late thought that he was gonna fly in front of the bus but the bus won.

& no, I read the local news on the morning call almost daily; I just dont have the time day in and day out to sit on a 'forum'(pardon, its basically the same as blogging) and uselessly argue. It's called having a life, and a family and a JOB. If your on here all day, very obviously something you lack.

Vincent's mom - you need to mind your business.

I have a life - actually, I work two jobs. I spend quality time with my family and when I have free time I'm online - is that so bad? I don't need to justify myself or my reasons for posting to you.

Just so you do know the definition, according to webster.com :

Main Entry: blog
Pronunciation:\&#712;blo &#775;g, &#712;bläg\
Function: noun
Etymology: short for Weblog
Date: 1999
: a Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer
— blog·ger noun
— blog·ging noun

This is more of a discussion forum. I'm not trying to be mean saying that, but this is truly not a blog. It's a place where people discuss their opinions on different subjects and topics.

You may see it as useless bickering, but that is your opinion. If you don't like reading it, don't read them. There are many forums that I have no interest in reading, so I don't. There are also many forums where I feel strongly about the topic, yet I don't post. It's a personal decision.

I'm not going to tell you how to live your life and how to spend your free time, so please refrain from trying to tell me how to live mine.
