I Always Get Stuck with the Ones Who Can't Get it Up

An image of two contradictory speed limit signs.Image via WikipediaI really wish I could ask these people what they're thinking.  Or if they're thinking.

It seems that I'm always getting stuck behind someone who just can't bother to get it up to the speed limit.  I went to the store today, and I got stuck behind slow drivers both on the way there and on the way home.  Nice road, nice weather, no reason whatsoever why they have to drive under 50mph in a 55mph speed zone.  It amazes me how many people do that.  What, are they afraid to drive any faster?  They don't have anywhere to go?  I guess technically speed limit means that's the fastest you're supposed to drive, so anything below that is acceptable.  Maybe that's what they're thinking.  Or there's something about getting better gas mileage by driving slower.  Maybe that's it.

Whatever it is, I'd really appreciate it if they would stay out of my way.  When I actually get out on the road, it's because I have someplace to go, and I'd like to get there sooner rather than later.
