one of my favorites was at work onee day. a couple of us were outside haveing a butt. well this old guy driveing a car with a hadicap permit pulls
into one of the handicap spots, but there is a shopping cart in the way. now here these spots are much wider than normal to accomidate vans with side
ramps, and have the sign in a cement pole that is anchored into the ground. well the old lady pops out and moves the cart. while she was doing this
the car in front pulls out. so the guy i guess decides to pull through. my friend and i saw what was about to happen and not being able to do anything
start to chuckle as we KNOW he will hit that post.
sure enough he takes off the passenger mirror. ok thats not too bad. you can get a used one for about $75-$100 from a wrecker, and a mild dent to the
fender and passenger door, probibly could have been pulled without any paint damage . well he starts to stop just like a normal person would when
hitting something. but then he decides to go on ahead. he basicaly TOTALED the whole pasenger side from the front quarter pannel back with the damage
getting worse as he literaly powered it through. the guy basicaly totaled his car when it would have been a minor repair. well my friend and i just
couldn't believe what he had done. we were just killing ourselves laughing at the fact that he had destroyed his car without a thought.
that wasn't even the end of it. he had the balls to go to the custumer service desk and DEMAND that they replace his car. now this pole is painted
bright yellow, is about 4 feet high or so, then has a metal rod with the sign on it, and it is about 8-10 inches thick up to where the sign is
mounted. how can he reasonably epect us to buy him a new car? and yes the car was pretty much new to begin with. even if he was blind enough to not
see the pole, in which case he definately should not be driveing. he could have stopped and had very minimal damage to the car. but HE DECIDED to
continue on destrying the car.
