I don't beiiiiiiiiieve it!

This is one of those moments where your eyes see one thing, and your brain cannot actually agree that this is, in fact what's happening.

OK, so, there I am in thick (pun not intended... well, maybe a little) traffic, leading up to the traffic lights you see ahead, when I notice this complete dimwit trying to pass me. He must have thought I was serving a bus stop or something. Anyhow, as you can see, he was wrong. Now, most folks, confronted with traffic coming past in the other direction, would hold fast, and wait until either (one) the traffic cleared for them to safely overtake, or (two) would wait for their own queue of traffic to move.

Not this great hairy half wit from a demolition derby. Ohhhh no. Not a bit.

So involved with his own self-importance and delusions of adequacy was he that he came past, forcing other traffic to take avoiding action - including the bus, who wisely anchored up, and waiting for this muppit to barge his way back onto the correct side of the road.

But wait, there's more!

The other bus driver was obviously waiting for Open Mike Night... because his next actions completely creased me up - he leant out of the window, and, in full view of all the other drivers, clapped applause to the driver of the offending car, gave him a massive toothy grin, two cheery thumbs up, and smiled, as if to say "well done, mate, you've been caught on at least three CCTV systems, you've been a complete prat, and see you on Road Wars sometime!"

The sheer sarcastic nature of the response to this car drivers bout of sheer selfish bad attitude it was a joy to behold - I couldn't have even come close - nice one, chum :) You had me laughing right to the end of the shift - and probably left all my passengers thinking I was a candidate for the rubber room!

Ouch... that HAD to hurt!

Well, just to prove that fools apparently do suffer, it appears that this person did something remarkably silly. I haven't a clue what the traffic light pole did to deserve the impact, but it must've been a massive surprise to the car... I mean, there it is, thinking, "Ah, let's have a nice drive in the town" when all of a sudden, the driver decides that he/she doesn't like the look of the traffic light, and decides to take it down, or get dented in the process. Well, they've learnt a thing or two about installing those things over the years - they're tougher than they look - as you can see.

Dented, leaning over, but still working.

They don't make 'em like they used to, do they ;)
