The schadenfreude thread...

Post by gnome »

I'll get the ball rolling...

Headed across a bridge in the left lane at a comfortable 5MPH above the speed limit. A pickup truck moves in behind me and begins to tailgate, obviously impatient with my progress.

I'm not as ornery as I used to be, and I've had it impressed on me that it's polite to move right if you're not as fast as the people behind you in the fast lane. So I do so. He zips on past me, followed by a white car with multiple antenna on top.

SO points out that the white car is an unmarked police cruiser, and about 30 seconds later he turns his lights on and pulls the guy over.

I had to resist the urge to wave as I went past.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Some years ago, about this time of year ... I20 100 mi east of Dallas ... 30 deg in an ice storm ... a pickup managed to pass me going backwards on the ice at about 50 mph ... I did wave at him in the ditch as I went past.

I watched in amazement at a guy who passed me illegally on a two lane road run over those "flexible" lane dividers and tear the oil pan out of his classic Nova. I followed an oil trail for about a half mile or so and just over a hill his car was off to the side of the road with a blown engine.

I honked, slowed down, and laughed at him. I felt bad for the car, though.

A couple of years ago I was driving on a stretch of highway with a 70mph speed limit. I see in my rearview mirror a blue pick-up driving very agressively, darting in and out of lanes, that sort of shit, he passe me like I was standing still. I was doing the speed limit at the time so he had to be doing at LEAST 90. I was quite content to let this maniac pass me.

Anyway, this particula stretch of road is pretty flat and I can see a long ways ahead. And I can still see him better than 100 yards ahead, driving like an idiot. Then a little jeep changes lanes infront of him to pass a slw moving truck...next thing I see is his brakelights come on, I see smoke coming from his tires and I see him go into a spin. Luckily the road isn't too crowded, so he doesn't collide with anyone and I am pretty far behind him at this point, so I was in no danger either.

Anyway, by the time I pass him, he is in the gully between the northbound and southbound lanes, all four tire flat and being "assisted" by a cop that pulled over from the other direction.

I couldn't resist the urge to make a little Nelson Muntz laugh as I went by.

Well done, I wish more people would drive as such.

I do drive fast, but I never tailgate and always move for cars that are traveling faster than I.


I was pulled over this summer by a Sheriff in an unmarked car for what I assumed was speeding. I passed him on the right because he was traveling too slow in the passing lane (it is a passing lane, NOT a fast lane). He did not give me a ticket and admitted to me that he was impeding my progress. He stated that he pulled me over because I gave him a dirty look.

Thank you for sharing that story. I can't count the number of times and impatient jackass has zipped past me, even when I'm already going 10 mph over the speed limit. There's never a cop around when it happens. At least now I know that it happens somewhere. :)
Such potential!

2 or 3 Summers ago I was traveling down a two lane blacktop, when this asshole, too involved in a cell phone conversation, pulled out in front of me. I slammed on my brakes and honked my horn, but all he did was flip his middle finger at me.

About a mile down the road we had to stop at a red light. It was a hot day and we both had our windows down. He had his elbow sticking out the window while he continued to carry on a VERY loud conversation using his cell phone. About this time a large yellow jacket came buzzing around my window. I ignored the yellow jacket and it quickly moved away.

Well... The jacket zoomed away and immediately lighted on the guys elbow. The guy tried to swat it away and in doing so... He slung his cell phone onto the pavement... Right under the wheel of a car that had just turned onto the road.

It was most excellent.

Recently someone accused me of being insensitive. And I thought, how did this fat bitch get her wheelchair up the stairs to my house?

Maybe you should not have honked your horn.


You are the asshole initiation.


Typical for you, no wonder you have a hard time ITRL also.

Heh, did that in NJ a few years ago. Guy went zipping past me at about 50 mph in an ice storm. Passed him 5 minutes later, he was actually on the far side of the ditch, car and all... I'm not quite sure how he accmplished that, but all 4 tires were sunk to the body of the car in mud and he couldn't open the door. We called him some help.

That is proper.

It was wrong for the others to express their spite for other humans that had had an accident.

You'll either get over it or you won't. Matters not to me either way.

Keep honking your horn at drivers.


You are a sad loser and you know it.

All you have is internet insults and car horn honking.



Sorry about your choices.

Millie Jermoe doesn't seem to understand the idea of consequences, she just keeps on spewing bile upon bile.

Then she wonders why we all dislike her so much.

But JJ, was it not you advocating the removal of those that had the wrong ideas at TOP?


Sorry, you fail in your attempt to place blame elsewhere.

I think the Obamanics have come to the realization that he is not the Saviour.

They do not understand why they are not now happy, he promised!

It is like coming down from an opiate. I honestly do feel sorry for them.
