Thank you Mr. Speed Racer Off The Line
Thanks guy, whoever you are. It may even be some of you here. Please...I beg of you, explain to me your logic and what goes through your mind when you do it? Maybe you just enjoy a scenic view? Why do you gun it off the line at a light to get ahead of myself or others at the most blazing of all speeds in your Geo or Neon (usually, and no offense meant to drivers), only to get ahead of the pack and pull some sort of Rossi victory celebration by slowing down to sometimes half of the motherf**king speed limit?
You may ask...why would I let you get in front of me? Well there are 2 reasons for this. One is that I never expect such a launch from the car...and the other is that when I hear that engine screaming as if it wants to break out of that car and scream "I am engine...hear me blow something up internally"...that sound is so strange to hear that I can't help but stare in hopes that somethings gonna start smoking.
So please..tell me...no, tell all of us who are actually trying to get to work as to why you scream ahead of the pack at pace and then proceed to ride 30 in a 45? Is it to get your plastic spinners up to speed? Perhaps you just went through a carwash and you're using my sometimes used method of drying the car? Or even more so, maybe you really do think that the "DODGE POWER" sticker with a picture of Tweety Bird looking all badass below it, really does add more ponies to your ride? I salute you Mr. Speed Racer off the line...here's to you having an early transmission failure somewhere in the middle of nowhere on a 95 degree day.
