Default Automotive Disrespect

What has someone done to disrespect you or your car? Today I walk out to the car to leave and find someone has ******* spit a big wad of yellow snot on my door handle... I already have a short temper and complete lack of self control when it comes to people disrespecting me and my property, so this really set me off. I was at first thinking it happened at class last night, but I just remembered I didn't go last night, that was Monday. No way I didn't just notice it since I have to look down to see the handle every time I get in the car. That has to mean someone came into my driveway to do it, which pisses me off even more. Let me catch someone spitting on my car and they won't be using their mouth for quite a while.

Anyway, any of you have any situations like this you would like to share? I like to vent my road rage or car related frustrations so they don't build up.

Somehow I've managed to steer clear of that sort of thing. I guess I'm due. Worst I've had was a car-full of dudes calling me gay at a light. w/e

My car isn't even modified or nice or anything. Well, outside of the wheels, you can't really tell anything is done to it. Must be that MiataTurbo sticker on the rear window!

It kind of worries me that if it was in my driveway, why would someone do that other than wanting to break into it. If it was last night, they may have lost their nerve at the car sits right outside of a bedroom window that is open, then decided to just spit on it and run. Only thing I can think of. Only other place I went yesterday was Walmart, and I would have probably seen it getting the car.

I've had **** happend to me a few weeks ago:

Driving home with the wife after a local car meet. 2 drunk *** rednecks driving next to us, one sticks out the window and starts fake laughing at me. Then he says "nice miata ------".......So not thinking too much I reply " at least I have a woman next to me unlike you two drunk redneck homo's"
So at the next light they pile out of the truck. Except there's 4 of them since I didn't see the 2 in the back. Drunk like skunks and holding 40 oz beers. One of them goes "YOU WANNA PLAY ******?" at this point my wife is flippin out and tellin me to get out of here. So I just gun it (luckily I'm turbo'd now and that was pretty easy to do) and just leave them standing in the middle of a busy intersection. They tried to throw their half full bottles of beer at me but missed horribly due to being drunk of course.

Anyhow, that was the first MAJOR disrespect I got in the miata and It kinda shocked me. Granted I shouldn't have mouthed back at them
I now have a gun and a concealed weapons permit for such an occasion. If something similar happens I'm holding them at gunpoint til the cops come and arrest them for drunk driving and assault.

Not if the wife's with you you won't. Also, as cool as it seems in theory, do you really want to risk greatly escalating the situation or the guilt of killing someone over something you could have driven away from?!? Worse yet the drunk rednecks could easily be armed too. Unless you are an ex-cop or combat veteran drawing down against 4 drunks mouthing off isn't something I'd advise as a first plan of action.

Now a huge can of bear repellent I might be able to get behind!

I took a jelly donut to the hood, windshield, top a few weeks ago. Not sure it was intentional though. Got a blank stare as I drove past giving them the finger.

A few people have called me a *** when driving my miata, in a previous car i somehow took what looked like a donut to the windshield when my car was parked.

I would rather have spit on my car than a fat key mark..

Me and my friend were driving back from MN to Chicago, both in our miatas and some tool bags in a VW Beattle were talkin **** to my friend who was in front of me (the VW was next to him at the light) One of them had the great idea to try and flick a cigarette into his car (top was down). They are lucky they didn't do it cause I am pretty sure they didn't notice I was behind him, and I was home from Afghanistan on R&R and would have loved to destory their happy little night and watch the cops let me go.

I'm actually kinda glad I didn't have my gun with me and it all just dispersed
You are right, who knows what could have happened. I still carry it with me now especially if I have to drive somewhere on saturday or sunday night: when all the drunk idiots are driving to or from the bar. You never know.

My pharmacy manager knows all these big wig mother effers in yuba county. Got me the paperwork, I filled it out, and I guess he put in a word or some crap. No idea. I know its nearly impossible to get one though, so I guess he helped out a lot. It was after we got robbed twice at gun point at our pharmacy, and for "reason" I put down "protecting self" as well as some other things he told me to write. In sacramento, and/or without his help I'd get rejected faster than I can say "gun".

Which reminds me, I think my permit is about to expire. I think you made the right choice by just letting it go though, even if you had the gun then. Though I can't really talk, I think I may have made the wrong choice there and held them at gun point. I don't like to let pieces of **** like that go, it hurts my pride too much. Though with the wife in the car, that would have been my move too I think, to drive away.

Oh, and redneck Alabama FTW! $7 and a short half page form, and no criminal record gets you a CCW license. I think I read that something like 30,000 CCW's are held in the Birmingham metro area. Thats out of only about 220,000 people. You do the math, lol.

I think that sucks major *****. As long as you don't have a record, you should be able to own and carry a handgun. I feel safer with mine, but being as so many people also carry legally and illegally, its a decent chance that if I have to use it, I will either already have one pointed at me, or will soon there after have one pointed back. Heres to hoping I never have to pull it!

To renew, they are supposed to send you a reminder letter, and you send in a $7 check or money order to the Sheriff's office and they send you a new card in like 10 business days, but they have failed to do that for me for the last 2 years! ******** make me drive 30 miles and wait in a line and have to deal with the typical courthouse/DMV lazy and rude people.

Even drunk redneck jerkoffs change their tune to the sight of a big ******* pistol...

Last I checked being drunk wasn't an excuse for ANYTHING someone does in this country (Unless your name is Kennedy..) As a licensed carrier you've got the right to defend life of you and your wife from a bunch of white trash retards if they're stone drunk, speedballin' or completely sober. Even more reason to defend yourself if they're armed while intoxicated which is a Felony where I live. A hollow point in the knee or thigh autta take care of even the drunkest of ********...


Back on subject...

About once a week I receive verbal personal attacks from people in traffic while minding my own business. Honestly it used to really bother me, like to the point where I'd exit the car and confront them in the middle of the street.. Anymore I pretty much just let it go and consider the source of the comments which 99% of the time is some white trash loser in the passenger seat of his friends mommys busted *** dodge.. To be quite honest I'd like to see more of those kids get their face mutilated in by someone like Brock Lesner for not learning to just shut the **** up and mind their own business.

Some guy on the radio said some very wise words:
If you have a gun and take it out be prepared to use it. Don't ever take it out unless you are ready to kill.

Thats what would **** me up. If I tried to remember that and treat it as law, I would end up in jail. There have been MANY times I have been ready to use it, but it wouldn't have been legal to do so.

I carry it and ignore it. If I really need it, it will be sure to remind me its there.

Now the only thing I have to do is be sure they don't try to run out of my house so I don't shoot them in the back as they try to make their escape and get my *** jailed. I guess just don't give them a chance to see you before you shoot their sorry ***. I value human life and all of that, but if you don't have the thought process to understand that breaking into someones house is wrong, then you deserve to be shot and I have no pity for you. In my house, you will likely leave with a bullet in you. Same with my car. If you get into my car without my permission and expect to jack me, you may again leave with a bullet.
