Driving around town

I'm always amazed by the rude behavior some drivers exhibit around town. Most are courteous, but when I encounter these displays of rudeness, it kind of makes one wonder... Today, I arrived at the intersection of Valley and Paseo Santa Cruz, where there's a four-way stop sign. I pulled into the left hand turn lane on Valley, with my left turn signal on. I waited at the stop sign for the car stopped across from me to proceed, then began my turn. The car that was behind the other car started honking at me as I made my U-turn (which the sign says IS allowed there), then sped past me on the left, still honking, even though I had arrived at the stop sign long before she had, since she was the second car in line behind the one that arrived at the stop sign across from me at the same time. Really nice way to start the day, Ms. Mercedes Sedan. She proceeded to tailgate other cars as she headed north on Hopyard. I hope she got wherever she was heading safely and had a better day after her coffee kicked in...
