Cars (driver texting) hitting cyclists is an inconvenience!

Texting Driver Who Slammed Cyclist: I, Like, 'Just Don't Care'

Can you believe this young lady? More upset that her expensive car was damaged and she lost her license than she was concerned over the health of a cyclist whose spine she had just fractured. I know, old guy ranting about over-entitled kids.

OK Foosters, you are the parents of the young lady! What do you do?

I'd go to my local Benz or BMW dealership and get her some new wheels and call my lawyer to take care of this.

I don't know why they allow the hoi polloi trash on the streets. Really!

She'll probably need some therapy, but she'll be alright with good care.

She was not raised by parents. She was raised by MTV and reality TV shows. Her value system reflects this.

Actually, the very worst young female drivers I have seen are all operating Hondas of various types, or VW Jettas.

That's why parents have several kids. If one of them does something terminally stupid, they can cut their losses. If she is an only child, the prospect of losing her to a murder conviction would be scary.
