The amount quoted on a written estimate by a reputable body shop (ie: not Maaco) to repair the damage.

Ha! That may be the best analogy I've heard since sitting down a few minutes ago.

Honestly, SoCal ain't NYC. The folks here aren't terribly hostile, but they are in a hurry and do not suffer fools gladly. Yeah, there are outliers, and some people have trouble balancing the act of driving with applying their lipstick, texting, reading a novel, and sipping their Grande Double Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino, skinny, no whip.

But I like it. And yeah, even the Prius drivers, for the most part, tend to keep pace with traffic. But most of 'em stick to the carpool lane anyway (hybrids are exempt) so they're not a bother.

You know whats really funny? Thats pretty much exactly how people from the East tend to describe NYers/my experience with them.

Funny old world.

I'm shocked that the Prenis drivers are speeding down there. From my sig you can see what they do up here in the NW.
+1

I pretty much treat hybrids as big cones.

It's a sad sad day when people start talking to themselves on the internet. Should be in the privacy of your own home or if it's a good rant, done while walking down a busy street gesturing wildly.

sorry guys, didnt get a chance to bitch about the ******* rain last night, had to work overtime, late-arrival C5's landed with medical supplies...


But W-T-F +200!!

Not only people can't drive when its sunny, but when you get high wind warnings and heavy rain, you ******* drive like it doesnt exist, and yet you still cant figure out why your fat-*** vehicle gets pushed two lanes over... around 5:30pm, I was driving toward SF to get my gay on, and meet my buddy for some drinks in china town, and some ******* bitch flies past me going 75+ in a grand caravan, and almost loses complete control by hydroplaning and almost being blown to the median in front of me... I hop into the next lane, and keep driving normally, and this bitch flies past me again, and swerving because of the winds... ends up in the grassy shoulder. I won't even talk about the bay bridge, with all the construction and retards it was like playing frogger with my life. I get a call to come back to the flightline around 2:00am, so I had to stop the drinks and sober up... and yes, I payed for a parking spot this time, last time I payed a meter or actually found a spot to park in SF, it was at a donut shop and some drunk *** hobo peed on my rental car... but thats a different story. Anyways, on my way back I counted up to 8 cars wrecked on the side of the freeway. Chinese people don't like white people speaking Chinese... it catches them off guard. My buddy is an aerial linguist, and speaks chinese and other languages, so imagine this white *** hick speaking near perfect chinese in a restarant that is full of business men. HA!

I got home safe and alive. I am also going back home tomorrow too, I got an LOC for be caught sleeping in the computer room by the first shirt and commander... what are the odds... I was studying for my CDCs and fell asleep... so I am being punished and being sent home... but at least its my first LOC and I havnt got an LOR!!

Woah you broke my brain with that first post. Ithink that it was coherent but you have way too many adjectives. Please use fewer, this is the iternet.

Also, cali is responsible for all of the modern culture of the world. if you think cali sucks then come to the east coast because at least over there, all the vapid culture clinigning retards have a teensy bit of style and wannabe soul compared to over here. Argh too many adjectives

Reno really though is the ******* of the place. I mean it is in the desert but so is la. You do get boner by association points though for being close to burning man though.

I'm sorry jesus.
