So I am driving to work today it is a nice sunny day and I am trying to beat traffic and take a few back roads. I come up on a yuppy driving like it is Sunday reading the paper and drinking coffee in a new Volvo S60. He notices my fog light in his trunk and speeds up a little but then slows back down. I have my wife and my daughter in the car and they are both yipping "can you believe this guy"
We are on a single hilly road with no options to pass. Finally I get to a red light ans we are both turning left to a dual lane road with about 1/2 a mile run to the entrance to the highway.
I think to my self. I will slowly ease past this idiot and merge on the highway.
I can see him in the car folding his newspaper and positioning his coffee cup so that it would not spill.
This guy starts to rev his very quiet car and assume the hunched shoulder position for a fast take off.
We are all killing ourselves at this posturing. I know his car is in the 14s and mine is in the 13th so I an certain I can kill him but I am more certain he is not expecting this truck to move like it does!!
The light goes green and he squeaks his tires and off he heads up the middle of the two lanes shifting furiously as if to "show me what a Volvo can do"
I make the corner and then Open her up. The turbo is only 10 lbs spooled so I leave an intersection stopping cloud of FOG and soon gain on this guy so fast that he does a "crap which lane should I head into as this truck is gonna rear end me"
I pass him in about 300 meters with two solid coal strips coming out of the duals glide over to the entrance to the highway. This guy now decides to hug my ***?? The Volvo clearly out handled me on the ramp but this is a very long ramp and I now have no turbo boost whatsoever and the torque converter is locked.
I gently lean into the skinny pedal and here it comes. A line of coal about mile long as this guy fades off in to the distance with his wipers on and at one point I think he actually stopped on the on ramp as he could not see.
Gotta love the Spartan
for "teaching some idiot a lesson"
Have a great weekend guys. This made my Friday morning as my wife and Kid were laughing and saying " when will they learn"
