It's been building.. No one opens doors for anyone any more, thank yous are few and far between. But today.. I am just blown away.
I am sitting in my van, enjoying some white castle while reading FR.
I hear a loud BANG on the side of my van. Look over and out the passenger window to see a 20 something kid who looks like he is a LONG way away from the beach. We lock eyes. He had banged his door in to the side of my van.. So I wait for him to walk around to the drivers side of my van.
I look in my rear view mirror. He's headed for the door to the restaurant.
I open my door, and ask "hey, aren't you going to at least say sorry?!?!?"
"it's just a little paint man, my car is ok!"
It's a old work van, one more door ding is not going to kill me or it. However, his statement just floored me!
And yes, his stuffed Honda Civic had a Zero bumper sticker on it. Both 08 and 12.
Did you hock a loogie on his windshield??
Whose line was it in an old western:
“I never killed anybody that didn’t need killin’”
Applies here . . . .
Scratch “ It’s okay man, no harm done” into the side of his car with a key.
No.. my mom taught me better. His.. Not so much.
Go find his house and stick a pin in his cable line.
setting the trapped gases free from the enslavement of the honda would be the right thing to do. after all, do those air particles really WANT to be in those tires?! of course not. no damage... just releasing the air back into the wild
you can be assured... the libtard would have zer0 idea how to change a flat.
Yes, it’s dead. Like many other things such as sense of community and American identity, knowledge of history, a belief in God, etc. As it turns out, when, as a society, you stop teaching kids those things, they act accordingly.
Reply to self; "Won't be when you get back."
I guess I would wait till I see him in line then take my claw hammer to his door.
Paint meet chisel.
That is all.
He’s from Michigan. I’m in Minnesota. At least that is where his license plate is from.
I don’t own a work van, but I have an old (’93) Chevy Suburban that looks like s**t (resplendent in heavily oxidized paint) but runs like a watch.
I’ll tell you that if that happened to me, my Suburban monster would back out and “accidentally” cream that little Civic.
As Cathy Bates said in “Fried Green Tomatoes” to the little rich bitches after she destroyed their little car with her land yacht after they stole her parking slot and mocked her...”Face it girls....I’m older and have more insurance.”
“common courtesy” is an oxymoron.
Carry a hand sledge hammer in the trunk for such situations.
Typical liberal, pot-smoking, hip-hop, wannabe-a-rap-star, loser.
I would have returned the favor and put a dent in his door, then responded to him with:
“It’s just a little paint, punk, but my van is ok! Enjoy your meal, Douche Bag.”
I'm not sure I want to ask this, but what will the result be of sticking a pin in the cable line?
I would have taken that option right off the table and flattened all four of 'em. Even if he knows how, I doubt he carries four spares.
I thought I remembered hearing years ago that it would ruin the whole system. Could be wrong.
Always carry a coke can (or bottle) with some old coke in it. Once the idiot has gone into the restaurant pour the coke onto the windshield wipers. It will dry on the rubber and the wipers will stick to the glass the next time they try to use them.
