Laugh of the morning. Traffic diverted to one lane on the main drag on the
way in to work.
Where it opened up again there was a kid stopped at the red light in a Mini
Cooper (BMW, not BMC). Another kid in a fairly new Civic, with his baseball
cap on backward (to the uninitiated this indicates a loss of about 50% of the
IQ points he started out with - often lamentably few in the first place)
carefully pulls around him on the right so that he can start off in the other
Mini driver sees him. Revs motor. Brain trust in Civic revs back. Light
changes. Both cars floor accelerators and drop clutches.
Unfortunately the delay of the red light must have exceeded our Civic
driver's attention span, as he failed to realize his front wheels were still
pointed at about a 45 deg. angle toward Mini. Prangs Mini amidships. I drive
around them, to work, laughing as I go.
Scary thought - this twerp, obviously ill-fitted by nature to operate
mechanical devices, may one day wind up in government, running things. Aghhhh!
