yesterday must have been idiot day
 
I'm driving slowly on a two way narrow road that is the entrance to a park, there are no intersections and no traffic. A cyclist pulls out right in front of me from the grass. I don't think he looked, and there were no other cars even in sight.
I slow down and give him plenty of room and time to pick any position he wants to ride in. He looks back and realizes that I am there. He decides to ride a few blocks in the middle of the left lane against traffic.
I stop so he can move to the right. He stays in the middle of the left lane until he can turn off the road.

Next, on a main road, there is a huge new sidewalk on both sides. There is a police car stopped blocking the sidewalk waiting to pull out. Along comes a Segway. I look at the Segway, when he turns to go around behind the cop he bashes into the cop car.

I pull up behind a car at a stoplight. There is a bikepath and a crossing light so cyclists can cross, it's a big intersection. This cross walk is in front of the stopped cars. The guy in front of me inches forward as a cyclist is crossing, and the bike rides into the car (slowly, but he falls over). The cyclist also was crossing against his own crossing light.

I need a video camera on my hood.

I can see the threads now:

Idiot driver forced me to ride in left lane!!

Dumb-ass cop causes me to crash!

Guy runs red light and hits me

It's all a matter of position and interpretation, really :D

Ok man. If you're in a bad mood, and someone pisses you off.

Eat a box of ex lax.

Once you hit the toilet, nothing else with bother you but the pain.

Goodluck.

Highly doubt it. I took an entire bottle of laxatives in less than a day. I was fine.

After all the highly sophisticated posts you've made, I'm surprised you'd say that to me good sir.

Glad you can take the hint of sarcasm.

Did that once...thought it was a good idea at the time so I could make weight for a wrestling tournament. Didn't crap once before the weigh in...but in the middle of my first match my opponent had shot for my legs..I sprawled and felt a rumble from deep within...and the rest is a piece of history that still lives in infamy to this day. :eek:

Chip com you are not alone . I know someone else who also had this happen to them and no it wasn't me.

Think Willy Wonka's chocolate factory getting nuked. :eek: I didn't tell you the best part - I wasn't the only one who had this bright idea....there were a bunch of us who were right on the borderline about an hour before weigh-ins. I was just be beginning. 2 other guys had the same 'accident' during their match...2 others had to forfeit because they couldn't get out of the crapper. I think of this as the 'best' part, because if it had been just me, I would have been tortured and laughed at for the remainder of my high school years...and maybe beyond. But, since it was a 'team' effort, I was saved. The bad part? Rumor has it that they burned the mats after that tourney and that my opponent never wrestled again. :D
