Well, that sucks. @ 08:06 pm

Current Mood: surprised stunned at California drivers

Was going to head to the office after eating at Armadillo Willy's, and when I was in the driveway, about to turn onto El Camino Real... *grind* *pop!* *engine revs but donut move*. My front right tie-rod broke, the ball joint popped, and my transmission went kaput, leaking fluid all over the place. Glad I wasn't on the freeway.

The most bizarre thing was that I had my hazard lights on and my headlights off, the engine not running - but people sat behind me and honked when I didn't move. What the fuck? This was five or six people over half an hour!

The tow truck driver was cool, though.

I think the Porsche Cayenne would be more my style.

"Hey, how'd that bozo manage to turn on and forget BOTH sets of turn signals at once? And why's he parked in the middle of the friggin' street?"

I think drivers all along the west coast take classes which amount to the teacher showing the students a car, pointing to the road, and shrugging helplessly.

Does everyone who reads your LJ have funny hair?

There's definitely some who do not. Having funny-colored hair sure is a good first-pass filter for seeing if they have compatible attitudes, though...
