Stupid Idiots....
    #4181736 - 05/16/05 12:19 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

So yesterday I was at a red light and like the 3rd car back. There was your average bum on the side with his sign. I never give anything to them because I am relatively poor myself. So then the light turns green and we start to go but then the car in front of me stops and holds out a dollar for the bum, which takes a little while, so I, and all the other cars behind me are just sitting there, behind these idiots. The bum takes the money, they drive off, make the light and you guessed it I didn't. That was really annoying. Idiots....

Fucking idiots, stopping in their hurry-hurry lives to give somebody less fortunate than them money, god, what could they have been thinking?!


Maybe the time and place wasn't the right choice, but you can't fault them for doing what they did.

You are right, now that I think about it, it's not that they gave them the dollar or anything, it's because they waited until the light was green to give it to them. That's what really pissed me off.

People stopping in stupid places, either walking or in cars, always annoys the hell outta me.

I hate it when people almost cause accidents because of their generosity. It's the same mindset as the people who will stop traffic (that's already in motion) to let somebody turn right into traffic. I leave a gap for people to pull out but I only let them in when traffic is already stopped.

Something like that almost happened to me, the knights of columbus were collecting so I got some change out, the dude saw I was getting my money out so he started walking toward me but the light turned green. I had to get the fuck outta there but I kinda felt bad :shrug:

I certainly can fault them for it, people expect to move at a green light and that can cause an accident. If they wanted to do the right thing then they should've went through the light THEN turned around and gave him the money.

LOL that's funny. Yeah you did the right thing. You can't just stop there in the middle of the road forever.

What really pisses me off is grocery store parking lots. I used to drive down the one way lanes to find a spot and there is someone stopped, waiting for these people in front of them (who are putting a TON of groceries in their car) to leave so they can get their spot.

They are literally sitting there for 10 minutes waiting for the spot while there are cars lined up behind them, honking and everything. I am amazed they are stubborn enough to stay there and get the spot. How lazy can you be? I usually just come in from the back and take the first parking spot I see, it's only like 1 minute to the front of the store.

The funny thing about this store is that it's really getto. People trying to get the best parking spot at the grocery store in the getto and holding everyone up. I really can't believe it happens....

On the stopping issue I was in homicidal ragedom whenever at school some people would either stop in a hallway intersection or stairwell to talk about how cool they were.

Gee, how did I know people would take the moral high-ground and accuse you of being uncaring :smirk:

Generosity is great but you can't forget about common sense... stopping traffic is fucking stupid, no matter how you look at it.
