Skip to comments.'Charge Rage' – electric car owners get angry after having vehicles unplugged
Posted on 01/24/2014 2:41:12 PM PST by Libloather
The growing popularity of environmentally friendly motoring in America has led to a new phenomenon, charge rage, as the owners of electric cars compete for places to plug in their cars.
While the owners of electric cars may care about climate change, they appear to be less solicitous of their fellow ecologically-motivated motorists.
Angry notes have been left on windscreens and drivers have returned to their cars to find that they have been unplugged.

There could be trouble.
At least the electric car owners are all libs and won’t own guns.
>>Angry notes have been left on windscreens and drivers have returned to their cars to find that they have been unplugged.
Do they write the notes with a faggoty lisp?
When two electric car owners meet with charge rage, what do they do to settle it? Do they have a dance-off (with show tunes, of course)?
Clearly the rest of us will have to pay for more charging stations. (and the electricity to go with them)
I hope they don’t resort to name calling and slapping.
The Electric Slide comes to mind.
Heh, heh, heh. Lovin’ it.
Payback to those enviro-weenies who used to key up Hummers is sure a MObama, huh?
What makes them think they can buy a $250,000 Chevy Volt for some $34,000 and think us taxpayers are happy to take that loss?
My buddy’s daughter has a Tesla (an awesome but overpriced rig IMHO).
She get’s “free” juice at her employer.
But another guy bought a Volt and they have to share, LOL.

That implies country music. Here in redneck territory, the only acceptable electric vehicle is a golf cart.
Nothing is more dangerous than an unhinged liberal....
build more charging stations.
Normal person solution: get a gasoline car.
Be kind of nice having that little four-cylinder internal combustion engine up running to charge up the batteries on the drive to and from work....
And just maybe, that little engine might make the day by crippling back to a place where real rescue work can be done.
A thorium-fired sealed recirculating steam power unit to drive the on-board generator, using some fluid medium (even air) to actually provide the motive power.
For electric vehicles to ever work with a high degree of efficiency and reliability, some on-board generation system has to be in place. Batteries are NOT a primary power source, they are just a rather inefficient form of energy storage. Maybe some kind of super-conductor capacitor with a way of modulating the discharge?
Dilithium crystals, that’s the ticket.
Kind of like siphoning gas from a conventional car.
O wait...conventional car drivers actually PAY for their own fuel.
If I were in charge all such disputes would have to be settled thusly: Fish Slapping Dance
Thank you for posting this and thanks to all the posters on this thread! I needed a good laugh today and that’s what I got here.
Thank you all!
Even the write up was whimpy. Slap fight indeed!
