If the sign says STOP, then STOP! (rant)
I was making a right turn at a red today and while stopped and looking for traffic, some moron high school kid in a Chevy Lumina ran into me from behind. I know none of you are dumb enough to run red lights, but why does it happen so often? He was on the job - in a company car! What was his rush? Why did he have to make the turn so fast that he couldn't look in front of him?
It just ****es me off. Here I am on the verge of a new carputer and some prick tries to steal my glory. Thank goodness there was little damage - the new trailer hitch I installed last week took 99% of the blow. My can of Mt. Dew took the remainder and showered the dash with sugary goo.
Go figure - My relentless persistence to follow the letter of the law would get me cold cocked by someone in an old beater. My first accident in 10 years - at least it wasn't severe enough to get the insurance companies involved...
Edit: To add a bit of irony - I was on my way home from johns auto looking for a new dashboard to hack apart for the Xenarc. WTF.
