That's only if you sleep with one of them or see them without make up.

False. Ray J's career has only gotten better these last seven years or so.

I let that simmer a bit until I made clear I was going to talk to her earnestly. But in all seriousness I told her … "Look… you and I both know you ran the red light (egregiously!) and the only reason I'm not in the hospital and you aren't on your way to somewhere else … is God knows why I hesitated. This is my neighborhood and I'm pretty sure you wouldn't want me driving like that in yours … so think about that while you are safely on your way home." This was clearly unexpected for her as she became blushed and began apologizing profusely. I said "fine, you could have killed me, but apology accepted… now quit driving like an asshole."

All in all I think it worked out. happy.gif

Wait. You cut her off, got out of your car, and confronted her?

Did you see her stop up ahead and think, "alright! Here's my chance to really escalate the situation?"

Each situation is different, but my cop ex-neighbor pretty much cured me of my desire to get out of my car to confront anyone. Even if you just want to have a reasonable conversation.

He just had too many stories of too many people getting shot for approaching another motorist in what was perceived as a menacing manner. And the 'stand your ground' laws being well publicized here in FL because of Trayvon Martin probably just makes gun owners more trigger happy (or at least I think they are)

I dunno if Cali has stand your ground laws, but I do know you have no shortage of shooting victims

Nope.

 

They do have a you-better-turn-around-and-keep-driving-mother-fker law in South LA though.

I can get pretty pissed when I'm driving, and I'm not especially proud of the way I've sometimes reacted to other drivers' stupidity. However, it has never, ever crossed my mind to get out of the car and confront someone. That sort of behavior isn't just "perceived" as menacing; it is menacing. I'm not saying it should be met with gunfire, but it is certainly a provocative action in a situation that's already hostile.

That was a mistake on the dean's part, put 'er that way, I'm going to stand outside his office tomorrow and speak angry words into a bullhorn with a microphone in front of it.

Okay just got back from my one-man protest of the dean's decision to give me demerit points. I scared everyone perty good as I walked down the long corridor to the dean's office I was like "Here I come I come I come I come. Here I come I come I come I come." (I spoke/sang these words into a bullhorn with a microphone in front of it just like Scott Weiland used to do.) Needless to say, the demerit points were removed from my record.

I considered this and certainly hear what y'all are saying. For the record I have never done this and would not have done so had I … #1) not been about 100% certain the wannabe Jackie-O in the Benz was not going to shoot me in broad daylight in the middle of Santa Monica and #2) not been almost killed on a residential street in my neighborhood where easily there could have been a kid on bike/skateboard or pedestrian as often is the case.

The run-through was so incredibly egregious … I mean so completely unnecessary and dangerous and given that it was close to my home naturally I got pretty pissed. But when I did proceed to talk to her (after she probably pissed herself), I stood 7 or 8 feet away from the car, smiled, did the "roll down the window" thing and spoke to her completely calmly but clearly with some intention. There was no escalation and she immediately apologized and got all jibber-jabbery having been confronted with her selfish idiocy. It won't happen again… on either side.

On the flip side however, I have seen maniacs get out of cars multiple times in LA and fuck no I would not be interacting with any of them. A few years ago some asshole tried to run into me right on the corner of UCLA campus and Hilgard so I called the UCLA police while he was following me and they were there in less than 1 minute to get the guy… it was pretty sweet.

In an even more crazy story, Aaron Eckhart's (yes the actor) brother Jimmy (massive douche, failed director) ran into the car in front of me on purpose on Wilshire and I saw it. The whole traffic stopped and even though he ran into the guy he gets out and starts going all ape shit on the car so I called the cops. The guy was a sociopath …the other car took off after Jimmy demanded the guy pay him $200, he lied to the cops, told them the other guy ran into him. I had video of him freaking out but the cops of course couldn't do anything. LA is full psychos, yes I know.

I am cautiously optimistic, as the saying goes.

So I guess chili would never be popular in a place like, say, Texas?

Looks like Kid Nickels has had the luckledy Jah so to speak with regard to traffic incidents.

Amen. I'm at about 23-24k miles per year right now.

One Wish may have been one of my favorite childhood songs, but I Hit First is truly his greatest work. The music video really sells it.

 

"She might move onto rappers and ball players, but we all know that I hit it first~"
