Went to the post office and watched as a BMW pulled about 25% of the way in to a regular spot and 75% of the way in to a handicapped spot.
Guy in a suit got out, looking like the world owed him a favor and went in to the post office. Obviously no handicapped plate or tag or whatever. Just one of the many business douches in the area that almost assuredly cares more about his overpriced luxury vehicle than people. I took a picture of it and posted it to FB (the sun was shining at just the right angle to obscure his plate number) but I kinda regret not doing anything else. Hey, I actually found the picture!
My apologies to any BMW drivers out there on the thread, as I obviously know that not everyone that drives a beamer is a jerk, but pretty much every bad experience I’ve had in the car involved someone that drove a BMW.
Had one guy cut me off, drive slow, then follow me to my house after I flipped him off while turning in to my subdivision. My guess is that he actually u-turned at the next subdivision entrance and came back up behind me.
He literally drove by and stopped, just to yell “hey you’re a real tough guy, real mature!” as I was getting out of my car. I was really too surprised to say anything better, but I walked toward him and said “look what you did!” which basically encompassed everything from cutting someone off to following a person to their house even though they (meaning the guy in the BMW) had a baby in a car seat in the back seat.
Think about that. They don’t know me. I could have a gun in my car. I could be ■■■■■■■ crazy. Or I could just see someone that pulls up in front of my house and starts yelling at me as a threat. Yet they actually put their baby in danger just to yell at a complete stranger because they didn’t appreciate getting the bird for cutting someone off and driving super slow in front of them. So yeah, after I pointed that out, they just drove off.
In another incident, I got stuck behind another BMW driver who was doing ten to fifteen under the speed limit on a somewhat busy, but fast moving road. I couldn’t pass him because everyone behind us kept passing whenever they had an opening. Goes on like this for about five minutes.
Finally got an opening and I look over as I’m passing in the right lane and he’s staring at his phone the entire time. I’m passing relatively slowly (aka going the speed limit) and he never looks up once. Or so I thoguht. As with the rest of these drivers, he’s a suit wearing business prick.
Well, this guy apparently saw me looking at him, because when we pull up to the next red light, I look in my rearview mirror to see that not only did he follow me in to the right lane, but he’s got a huge grin on his face as he’s flipping me off with both fingers for the entire duration of the red light. Just a big, ■■■■ eating grin and two middle fingers for about thirty seconds.
All I could do is shrug in a sort of “wtf is your deal?” kind of way because I was so surprised. I guess I was just supposed to sit behind him while he checked his phone and drove like my 95 year old grandma? Maybe me looking at him was somehow offensive to his slow driving, internet checking ■■■? Whatever. Either way, that’s as close as I’ve ever gotten to getting out of my car.
I also find that Lexus drivers drive rather slowly, but no one competes with the BMW drivers when it comes to making my blood boil. Obviously, just a few isolated incidents. But I’ve also seen others or been involved in others where they either drive too slow in front of you or ride your butt when they’re behind you or cut people off or whatever, so yeah. Wasn’t all that surprised when the post office thing happened.
Sorry, veered a bit off topic here.
