Feel Good Story of the... Wait. Idiot.

Click the link above to read what the Miami Herald paints as a "feel good" story. Personally, I guess I'm glad the guy's alive...

But he's an idiot. And should have a vasectomy.

ONCE AGAIN, similar to my Girl Flips Car on 826 and Dies post, someone doing something stupid, got themselves in trouble, AGAIN, while driving.

Hey, note to Florida: How about a yearly driver's test?! Huh?! We need to get these people off the road. And how about questions on the test like, "While driving, and your cellular telephone rings, you should A) Take your hands and eyes off the steering wheel and road, and rummage around in your car until you find the phone and answer it while maintaining your current speed; B) Keeping your hands on the wheel, look for the Phone; C) Wait until your car is stopped safely and you are no longer driving to answer the phone and collect your messages.

I daresay that should be one that if you get it wrong, you fail your test.

"When he looked down to survey the spillage,"


Haaahahaahahahaww! He's all "O! What do mine eyes perceive!? Spillage! Ow!"

Take the man's car and give him a Segway.

I agree. At least if he crashes into something in a Segway, it's only going to be 250 pounds of force crashing into something, instead of two tons.

His insurance premiums are going to go through the ROOF. I hope.

I absolutely do not understand people who do other stuff while driving. I don't even drink a coke. I drive a stickshift and especially in town it takes all hands and feet to make it go. The whole phone yacky drinky read the news thing...stooopid. If mah phone rings, that's what voice mail's for.
Self-righteous! It's what's for dinner!

Wow, that's some quality journalism on the part of the Miami Herald. Are their stories always so well written? They really have a penchant for random details.

Oh, sorry, was that not what your post was about? Right, yes, the man is an idiot. When will people figure out that driving is a skill that requires multi-tasking and therefore deserves your undivided attention? The couple times I've driven while talking on my cell phone I couldn't even remember how I got from point A to point B, which is why I know it's a bad idea and I don't do it anymore.

Adrienne - Yes. Hopefully he'll sue IHOP and retain us! (We don't work on contingency, though.)

Laura - You stop paying attention, eventually, to the TERRIBLE QUALITY and start paying more attention to the TERRIBLE RETARDEDNESS of EVERYONE HERE.
