Re: The Unofficial "Thank You, Dumbass" Thread

A very special thanks goes out the less than skinny ‘lady’ talking on her cell phone in the green Expedition who pulled in front of me yesterday on the way home from work. Yes, I am the guy on the 900 Pound motorcycle with his bright light on that was coming up behind you in the left lane when you decided to merge without looking or using your blinker. I know you didn’t look as I could see your face and eyes and they didn’t look into the side mirror. Luckily for me, God supplied me with earth turning torque and I vacated the space where you slide into. Yes the hand signal I gave you was indicating that you should hang up and drive.
And I apologize that my horn startled you so much that you almost wrecked your cage…

Not really.

To all the out-of-town cagers rolling through town.
Pay attention to what your doing!
If your in the wrong lane, you should at least f*****g signal if your not actually going to look when changing lanes.
I mean really, I can blow a .25 B/A content, while texting, and still not drive as ignorant as some as you MFer's.
And specifically to the one that almost clipped me FU.

How's that for Christmas spirit? Stupid SOB's.

The amazing thing is that absolutely no one is thinking of killing you. They are capable of killing you without a single thought.

I remember the red Sunbeam Alpine that started to pull out in front of me from an intersection on the right, turning left to go by me in the other direction. So, I swerved to the right to go past the rear bumper. Then, goofus stopped halfway into my lane, forcing me to swerve back left and go round his front bumper. I was on my 1966 Yamaha YM1 305cc. Would not have been pretty.

In 1970.

Yeah, these things tend to imprint fairly permanently in one's consciousness.

If it was a Sunbeam, it probably stalled.
