    oh I know. That's what they do.


    I was once on a train and this hobo was going around asking people to wish him a happy birthday if they didn't have any money for him.

    About a year ago some shitbag hit the side of my Jeep because he was having an epileptic fit. Broke the driver's side running board and messed up the sidewall a little. Then he kept going and crashed into a Burger King sign. I had to wait around for like two hours while cops and medics dealt with him only to find out the shitbird didn't have insurance. Fucking piece of garbage.

    I looked into it, but he's what we call "judgment proof." No money, no house, nothing but a piece of shit Chevy Cavalier that was totaled from running into a Burger King sign. Wouldn't be worth the time or effort.

    Be glad nothing worse happened.. last year in Hamburg close to where I lived, a guy crashed into a small crowd of people killing four people due to having an epileptic seizure. That guy already caused a couple accidents because of seizures in the past, lost his driver's license and actually got it back! The fuck. Didn't even apologize until the trial. Was convicted for (just...?) 3.5 years.

    Yeah, an old guy had a heart attack and crashed into a bunch of parked cars at my father's business. He knocked down a telephone pole and the transformer fell on the car catching it on fire. The guy was ok in the end, but his car was toast. He had insurance.

    The one in Israel I couldn't figure out. Looked like road rage to me.

    I think maybe the guy in the car behind was in league with the toyota driver. When their mark failed to crash into the toyota when he randomly slammed on his breaks, the accomplice following lost his rag. Maybe?

    I was a strange person on the subway this morning. I woke up late and was exhausted;I grabbed the trash to leave out if front of my building. I was about 100m into the subway station, well past the turnstile, when I realized I was still holding the bag of trash.

    Temperature hit 39 degrees(that's in Celcius) here today and as usual the Train System lost its shit and broke down.
    Was forced on to tram with literally 100 other people squashed ass to check for a joyous 40 minute ride.

    LOL As I take out a bag of trash every morning I find this very funny.

    When I was a little kid I was playing with the cloth napkin at a restaurant and my father snapped at me and said, stop it, hold it on your lap. So I literally held it in my hand on my lap the whole meal. On the drive home I realized that I still had it in my hand and got upset that they were going to arrest me.

    Don't keep us in suspense. What did you do with the bag of trash?
