How many people know that GEICO used to be the "Government Employees Insurance Company"?

GEICO was my 1st insurance for my 1st car.
I was working for the Federal Aviation Administration at the time.

I find it's way to easy to get stressed and drive like an idiot myself when I let other peoples driving bother me so now when I see someone doing some stupid crap on the road I just chill and let that stuff wash over me. Driving is a much more enjoyable experience if I just cruise and let other people do what they do and not worry about it so much.

As my driving behaviour changed completely in the last 10 years, the rants changed as well. At that time, where speed was all that mattered, it was:

- The so called "Mittelspurschleicher". Drivers in the middle or left lane driving 50 to 60 mph when all of the right lane is free. Passing down the right lane will cost you your driving license over here when they catch you multiple times.
- People who drive 5 to 10 yds behind you when you already drive with 120 to 125 mph. Horrible!! You can basically offer them a seat in your luggage space.

Now I prefer not leaving the right lane, going 50 to 60 mph myself and don't care about the "wars" all other guys fighting out on middle and left lanes. Much more enjoyable. Now what pisses me off the most are drivers who do not turn on the headlights in the dawn or when it's raining. Basically impossible to see them coming from behind.
