Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon.

Insert country/city/state here

I have heard this rant a hundred times, although with a hundred different names of places around the earth in place of "Maryland" or whatever whipping boy country/city/state you want to bash at the moment. Clipped from craigslist.org:

"It never fails that the idiot driver who cuts me off, doesn't use turn signals, drifts into my lane, or is going 10 miles below the speed limit, is a Maryland driver. MD drivers are the worst on the planet. And I've been around the world. Even the crazy ass Miami drivers, who weave through the streets have nothing on a MD driver. Even in Thailand, where taxis don't have doors, and bikes cover the busy streets, drivers are still better than MD drivers. A good friend of mine put it best, 'People from Maryland don't exactly drive. They just get in the car and shit just happens. It's like they're blind or wasted and their hands are attached to the ceiling.'"

Do people think they're saying something new when they go off on the "crazy-drivers-rant"? This rant is more annoying and cliche than saying "that's how the cookie crumbles" or going off on the "English-language-is-so-crazy" rant.
Comments:
The English language is so crazy if you think about it! If I were from another country like Australia or something and English wasn't my first language, I'd sure hate to have to learn it!
 
Dude, you hit the nail on the head, and it's just in the nick of time. But you can't judge a book by it's cover, my man. Don't throw rocks at glass houses. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
 
Jimmy, don't forget that every cloud has a silver lining either.
