Scumbags on the road

I had to drive into town this morning. I was gone about an hour, including time spent wandering around Supercheap looking vaguely at anything that might be interesting, and went straight there and straight back. So of course, I only ran into two annoying idiots.

The first one was a fat, silver-haired man with a golfing cover on the spare wheel of his little Suzuki 4WD. He drove at the speed limit where nobody drives at the speed limit, which you can't legitimately complain about, but then, approaching the big double-lane roundabout, he went into the outside lane and then attempted to straighten the roundabout by casually moving into the inside lane and then back to the outside on the exit, sweeping right across the road. I was very nearly drawn level with him when he tried it the first time, too. Illegal, dangerous, rude, inconsiderate and completely unnecessary.

The second one was a small, weedy man with a neat little almost-Hitler moustache and the crazed eyes of a bitter, small, weedy little man. He was driving an old 2WD Hilux ute, and had one hand out the window, resting on the wing mirror which, clearly, he was therefore unable to use to actually see what was behind him - you know, the general intended function of a mirror. Even more disturbingly, when I first spotted this he was running his hand back and forth along the top, as though caressing it. He then went around the last corner at about 30km/h. And the pulled over without indicating.
