I teach you how to save money, but you demean the teacher.

Your hallucinations tell you that you aren't speeding, when you are driving as fast or faster than the general flow, who are speeding.

You are a speedier speeder. Do you call the police officer by them words, too.

You need to learn that if you are demeaning to others (just read your last post, with phrases like "you need a new life" etc.) people will not be receptive to anything else you say. Your remarks show that you are not a teacher, just a condescending jerk.

Huh??? I told you that I drive 60-65 on roads where the speed limit is 65. That is NOT speeding, no matter what you continue to insist. In continuing to ignore what I wrote you are either hallucinating, or for some reason you can't comprehend written English.

I'm driving under the speed limit - but it sounds like you are reading this thread and replying while you are under the influence.

Driving slow saves me around 3-4 cents per mile. I can't seem to make better time driving faster unless I am speeding along at 80-85 MPH so I don't bother much.

wow so defensive its agressive LOL

I drive the speed I need to get to where Im going when I need to be there.
I leave when I can to achieve that goal If your the butt head rolling 35 mph in a 55 zone so you can save 2-3 cents doom on you! whatever makes anyone think thier so special they can torment others while driving Ill never understand. If im holding someone up I make attempts for them to go on but now at risk to myself or others. If someone is slowing me up same exact result. Its the I own the road and dont give a darn for others at all that make me want to drive my giant suburban over them or grab park brakes for the ignorant zippity doos. Every one drive like me so we will all get along lol.

Is that a typo in the bold part? If so that one little typo changed the context of the whole sentence.

There isn't even a 55 MPH zone on my commute. It is 65 on the freeways, 45 on the highways, and 35 and 40 on city streets. I should update my sig since I've brought down my speed to something more reasonable on the freeway.

My eyes bleed every time I read your posts, and I assure you, it isn't because of auto-correct.

In my regular job, I make about $24/hour. On Saturdays, when I run my part time vending business, I usually average $200/hour gross. Even though fuel cost is a concern, so is wasted time. I've got a family and life outside of working both jobs. My regular job during the week has fixed hours, I can't do much to reduce my working hours. But my vending business, the faster I get my route serviced the more time I have for my family and the higher the $/Hour I earn.

There are many tradeoffs in life, and sometimes you trade time for money.
