Jun. 17th, 2005 @ 07:42 pm Why must drivers around here be retarded?

So there I was, stopped at a traffic light, minding my own business(and stressed out that I had to take alternate roads due to traffic). And all of a sudden, a Honda CR-V driver decides that it's far too tiring to continue to press the brake petal at the red light, so they let go. And slowly but surely their car drifts backwards and bumps mine. Now I'm sick of taking more time to get home and dealing with insurance crap, and I figure a 1mph collision couldn't do much damage to my car, so I glare at them and flash my highbeams, and continue on with my way. Still doesn't make up for people being retarded drivers...

Doh. You didn't have the optional rocket launcher upgrade installed in your Mini? This is the kind of situation that's designed for.

Since I was coming home from work, I didn't have any rockets in the car at the time. They have this silly requirement there that I leave the rockets at home.

Stupid kids need to stay off the roads.

Had a guy roll into me from the rear on the way to work last year and try to make me give him money on the spot. After failing to convince him that my car, an automatic in drive sitting on flat ground, couldn't roll backwards into his, I reminded him the we were both likely to be late to work if he didn't drop it... and he did.

Oh, and did I mention he was driving like a torus with spinners?

They probably don't know how to drive a standard...or they're just stupid...or both.

What is it with amv creators and car accidents lately? Is there going to be a mother of a pile up in Atlanta this summer and wipe out the species?

Got rear ended several months ago, but that has since been completely repaired. Thankfully this one did absolutely no damage.

You need to upgrade to Mini-zilla so you can stomp on retards who do things like that.

I wonder how a Mini would look with a good solid push bumper like this one...

... or just go with the aforementioned rockets. Less good for point-blank, but much more satisfying.

I just need to set my MINI up with transformer mode, and go into a robotic rampage whenever someone does something stupid like that.
