F-U Prius Drivers. Just when I thought it was all behind me…
A Prius Feel Good Picture
Well it was a great day until I got on the road to work. Usual traffic, blocked some ‘short cutters’ and then almost to the 405 Freeway ramp and a Prius tries to squeeze behind me to make a w-i-d-e right turn around me. Impatient Jerk. But due to his bad Prius Driving style (and of course attitude) he clips the back of the Excursion… Well not really, just the Trailer Hitch Ball. Nice!. Pulled over and guess what, looks like I the 2nd or 3rd try at a proper side swipe. Pissed off I looked and saw only the white ECO friendly paint and nothing bent or damage so I told the guy to hit the road and be more careful. He grumbled and went on his way. Now I’m really pissed because I’m way out of any chance of easily getting on the freeway, have to do some left turns in morning traffic and no way to get in line to the non-carpool lane. So I make the left on the 405 ramp and snake all the people that would not let me in. Just then I see a motocycle cop on the overpass pulling up to look for just that. Whew, just missed a dumb ticket. Well, now on my way. I arrive at work and with the Excursion. The underground parking has limited selection of big spots, and guess what, the only slot left are next to two Prius’s (or is that Pri-i or prisus?) well the gal that just parked next to where I was targeting did a lame parking job and was ‘over the line’. I wanted to cram the truck in to 4×4 mode and repeatidly push it into the cement wall then say ‘Sorry’ didn’t see your car.
On a good note, No damage to my truck, I didn’t get a ticket, and I held back on smashing up someones car because they are a poor parking Prius driver. I should get a lottery ticket now!
