    And see that they are struggling to pull out of a junction/slip road etc. and you flash them to let them go...and you wait....and wait...and wait...until you start shouting 'move your car for christs sake you imbecile' waving your arms in the direction to which you want them to go...anyone else suffer this?

    well I try and make a calculated judgement and see if I can spot the driver, if they seem in a hurry or young (i.e. willin to boot it over quick) then I would slow down, but if they're old or seem like they'll take a while then I wouldnt stop. Bottom line is I don't get this much (not never, but not much)

    it all depends on how slow the traffic is, what mood i'm in etc. if i see that somebody was sitting there for a while, i'll let them out. but if i see that the person behind the wheel thinks they'll be smart and will try to sneak out, will put the nose of their car in, so you have to let them out...well, i just drive as close to the next car as possible and not let them out:no:

    I find this sometimes too as my daily commute has a lot of side roads joining a busy single carriageway. The worst ones are the ones that you flash from miles away but don't start moving until you're practically on top of the junction, forcing you to stop when you only needed to slow down :scared2:

    Haha! One of my pet hates, especially in Germany, they just dont get the point of politeness, you flash to let them out and they just sit there scratching their heads, thinking your being rude or offensive...

    Why do I always get the ones that when you let them out they creep out in fornt of you and then proceed at 25 MPH, at which point you find that they are invariably going all the way to where you too are going!

    it's the ones who you let out and then don't acknowledge your kindness with a wave that get my goat, ignorent c**ts. seems to be taxi drivers who are the worst closely followed by young girls* who invariably seem more intent on applying yet another lair of slap before they arrive at work.

    time for that scud modification to the S4 methinks, that'd rearrange their makeup for 'em
