I really hate those urban assault vehicles they clandestinely call SUV’s and sport trucks. You know the type…….those trucks that are 1.5 times bigger than your normal truck, and they sit high enough to where they can conceivably see over mountains, yet cannot see anything within a 10-foot radius around them.
So why am I blathing about this now?
I was driving normally down 24th St W, approaching a stoplight when this ominous BRIGHT RED pickup comes barrelling out from a side street right in front of me! To make matters worse, this truck had a DEMO plate on it, meaning it was either some test driver or a dealer taking a shiny rig out for lunch. Either way, this member of the United Fuckwit Collective almost made a speedbump out of my car! If I hadn’t slammed on my brakes, hoping not to get hit from behind, and manage to swerve away from him, my ride would surely have been so much roadkill.
Is it REALLY so much to ask to WATCH where the hell you drive? Thank goodness when I learned to drive, they taught “defensive driving”. I guess they don’t do that anymore, because I see more morons on the road every day. Oh, and that urban legend about “California drivers”? Don’t believe it for a second, because you see lackwits no matter what state you’re from – they’re no different based on origin.
and for Pete’s flipping sake….HANG UP YOUR CELL PHONE while you’re at it! GAH!
