Spire's 'First Time Screaming' thread in the 'Safety and Advocacy' forum reminded me of the most stupid excuse I ever got from a motorist.
She was travelling in the same direction as me and turned directly in front of me into a school. I had to slam on the brakes to stop myself crashing into the side of her vehicle and only just avoided a messy situation.
I followed her over to the carpark where she was going to pick up her daughter.
Her excuse? "I'm going to pick up my daughter from school. You should have given way."
What? She was trying to tell me that she could break the law and eveyone should stay out of her way because she had to pick up her little girl.
What is the most stupid excuse you've heard?
