General stupidity

As many of you know the snow belt got hit by a half way decent storm over the past 24 hours, or so, and many people just started to emerge from hiding this morning. I was out and about, getting a few thing accomplished, when I saw someone who had more money then brains. The parking lot was covered in a light coating of "stuff" and this Lexus driver was trying to get out of a "Flat" parking spot. Seems simple enough put the Toy-look-a-like in reverse and then in drive, how hard could it be. Well after three or four attempts trying to back across the "flat" parking lot and going nowhere I notice that his rear tires were stationary. After a while it was comical. Finally he got far enough out that he could put it in drive and well, attempt, to drive off. Still with the parking brake on he pounded on it to get it to move forward. Once moving forward everyone that was walking pointed at the rear tires and laughed and it seemed that the other three or so trucks that were in the area seemed to be doing the exact same thing that I was doing, Pointing and laughing. All in all I am not sure if it fits into the kill section but I thought that it was worth mentioning. Or maybe the kill goes to the mother pushing a stroller with two kids in it that passed the lexus

My favorite thing to do when it snows is to get in my truck and go pull people out of the bar ditch for 20 bucks a piece. People here in texas hardly ever see snow and they forget that it is alot slicker than normal out there.


O well... I made almost $200 last time
