    Jerk of The Day

    ...because every jerk thinks they are...Special!

    Sighted by: lamebums
    Vehicle: Chevy Van
    Place: I-471, Cincinnati, Ohio
    Date: August 6, 2008 - ~3:00 PM

    I'm crossing the Big Mac bridge on I-471 returning from Jud's house and who else gets on my butt but a big van? I'm doing like 45 in the far right lane ready to make my exit and he gets within six inches of the bumper. I whip out the phone, he backs off to two feet or so, then closes in again. I can only assume he was going WOT, Brake, WOT, Brake back there.

    I make my exit, he follows and stays on my butt as if he were a hemorrhoid. When I merge onto US 50, I give my left turn signal and without warning he goes WOT again, cutting me off in the left lane. The added insult to injury was I finally discovered this van was towing a trailer loaded with lawn care equipment.

    Where's a cop when you need one? Or more importantly what does the AAA have to say about all this?

    Is this also celebrating the 63rd anniversary of the 1st A-bombing?

    man he's "hypermiling" the crap out of that truck! Air resistance must be like terrorism to his united states!

    What an @$$hole! I used to give these types a nice jolt on my brakes, but I don't dare do that anymore because it will kill my momentum. Well, if he keeps this up, a cop will eventually nail him.

    Anyone seen the bumper stickers: "Tailgate me: I need the Money" ?

    There are people driving clunkers intentionally throwing their brakes to collect money from the insurance companies

    I now have three parking passes up there. The yellow one expired 08/31/2007. :eek:

    The orange one expires 8/31 this year, and the new one, a blue and white striped one, expires 8/31/09.

    Each year it gets more expensive and there are fewer and fewer parking spaces. :angry:

    Its funny, but in many state having parking stickers on the windows or things dangling from the mirror while driving is illegal, but schools keep handing those things out the same old way. You would think by now they would have a better way.

    FSU went to window clings that attach to the lower corner of the windshield. My first year at FSU, we had ones that were 7 "long that hung from the mirror... I wish I had a picture... oh wait there is a picture of my car with one hanging on the mirror here.
