Does anyone else completely hate people who text and drive?

Heading to my little brother's house for Thanksgivikuh. My parents are flying down from Nome, and it'll be the second time I've seen them in 2 years, so that'll be nice.
It's getting to be the slow season for flatbed with agricultural and construction freight coming to a trickle. Other than emergency salt runs, it'll be slim pickings until the thaw. Thankfully, it's roofing season, so I see a lot of shingles in my future. Might end up hopping on a UPS contract pulling wiggle wagons for a while if they pull their heads out of their collective anus and offer a decent rate.
Planning on spending a week cooling my heels and getting fat on stick house food and booze for the winter. Haven't really stopped pushing freight since I ditched the trainee, and thankfully, I've made up for the financial losses he caused and thensome.
Ask a truck driver anything.

Jesus Christ, what a painful process. How is the process to get a driving license in your country?

Back in late August I got a new 2013 Acura Ilx. Paid 32k for it, with nav and some other packages boosting the price. I'd been thinking about it for almost half a year before the purchase, as it was my first car. My budget was just at around the price I paid, and I was just short of getting low end (new) luxury cars like an a4 or bmw 3 series. I went in with the mentality of never considering a used car, even a very nice used a4 2011 or 2012.
One of my other options was a beefed up camaro. Did I make the right choice? All in all, I wanted something classy. The ilx interior is absolute shit, and being in a 2011 audi a4 just days ago, I'm put to shame. Black exterior and interior with about 1850 miles on the car currently.
