Avoiding the smoke

Onefastgranny and I have been talking about this for some days now and we have yet to figure out why it is that when you lay down one of those nice black clouds of that sweet smelling diesel smoke that the person behind you wil inevitably swerve to avoid it. Sometimes to the point of running off the road or even in the ditch. Anyone have any theories as to why this strange occurence happens???

Funny! My favorite pasttime when I'm drivin' is when I see one of those "be-bopin' homeboys" with their hat sittin' all crazy, tryin' to look tough but WALKIN' down the street is to get close to the sidewalk and "give 'em somethin' to choke on"!

Makes me laugh EVERY TIME

I did it to a BMW today and it was the first time I have ever seen anybody get outta the way. She was all in the turn lane tryin to get outta the smoke. I thought she was gonna turn I looked in the mirror and after the smoke let up she got right back behind me again. Guess what I just had to do it again. HAHAHAHAHA stupid yuppie drivers.

Funny you should mention this, Monday afternoon I put a nice healthy cloud out via the smoke tune, looked in the mirror to see who got it and noticed it was a young girl in a car.

Continued on my way, I flipped back on my economy tune, still putting out a little smoke just for my own amusement - not directing towards anyone specifically, Coming up to a red light, I was just playing around puffing out spurts of it. The same young girl still behind me proceeds to get in the turning lane on my right.. as she passes me, her horn beeps a few times and I see her with her waving her arm and #1 finger out the window as she passes me.

I didn't know I was #1?!!?
