"You Are Lucky To Be Alive..."

From someone at my bar tonight.

"Have you seen how small your car is? For chrissakes!?!"

My first thought was, What th' actual fuck?

Some may not have heard this, I was rear ended on a rainy day last week, by some kid in a Jeep Grand Cherokie. And yeah the traffic was screwed. I was at a dead stop when the vehicle behind smacked me. He might have been doing 5 mph. Lil'Red suffred a crack in the bumper and it 'feels' like there is some tailgate damage.

'Lucky to be alive,' is a bit of a stretch.

Sometimes you don't have to look for stupid, it just reaches out and touches you.

Pretty sure Mini's are pretty safe. Bigger does not mean safer :/

Agreed... Rather difficult to argue sometimes though.

Years ago (before we even wore seatbelts) I purchased myself a hunter green MG Midget convertible. I loved it! Everyone I knew predicted my impending doom driving that car.

I'm still here. The car, sadly is not. Still miss that little car!

Back before small cars were as popular as they are now, I had people tell me bizarre things like, "the steering on those little cars freezes up." Like they were almost proud of delivering that bit of misinformation.

Dumb asses still deliver bullshit with some kinda glee. Not really sure why...
