Don't Indulge Your Road Rage
« on: October 08, 2009, 02:14:11 PM »
Saw this fight between a pedi-cab operator and a cabbie on local news the other night. There are a lot of similar situations that occur with motorcyclists, so let this be a lesson:

You never know if a cabbie is trained in greco-roman wrestling (though by the end it pretty much just looks Greek). Probably they were both being dicks, but the pedi-cab operator made the first assault when he threw his coffee, so I don't have much sympathy for him.

Man that guy freaked. Guess the pedi-cab guy has a thing against trash cans also! Attention, attention......fight at the corner of 1st grade and stupid.

Guess these guys are just too much alike to get along.It's nice to see a couple with so much in common can find each other.

It's like a Harley-Davidson Servi-Car with pedals instead of a motor.

NY sure does drag stuff like this out for a long time.
Here in Detroit it's just bang bang and things are back to normal. Maybe 5-10 seconds max.

If that had happened in The South, the motor cab driver would have been on the ground, full of bullet holes! You can't threaten to run over a feller on a bicycle with a car and get away with that! Good thing for BOTH of those Yankee Big Mouths that they were just into "blustering" at each other so no one REALLY got hurt .... Hahaha!! Things is diff'ernt in The South ....  ;)

Tut tut tut what silly behavior,

      Bring back the stocks I say and throw rotten tomatoes at them.

      Bit like islamic stoning without serious consequences except embarrassment.
