I'm cursed

A while back, I regaled you all with the story of how I witnessed an SUV do cartwheels. Well, this past week I was on vacation and I was driving down that same stretch of highway when I witnessed yet another idiot driver. It was not quite as spectacular as the SUV, but had special meaning for me, as it was almost exactly the same spot on the highway.

This time I watched a guy try to change lanes and squeeze in between an 18 wheeler and a minivan. Well, he didn't quite make it, so he had to slam on his brakes, causing his backend to start fishtailing. He ultimately ended up spinning around a few times and then stopping in the emergency lane, perpendicular to the freeway. By some miracle, he managed not to hit anyone, nor flip his car. So, not as entertaining as the last time, but still exciting.

I remember that story!
Wow, that must be a dangerous area, or people just simply drive like idiots and it is a coincidence.
Be careful, other drivers don't know what they are doing.

You get to see all the cool stuff. I only get to see old people dodge traffic.

That's whacked.

My sister pulled a similar and equally asinine number several years back with an old Chevy Thunderbird. Flipped that mother six times. The following is an account of what she remembers:
crash-pavement-sky-pavement-sky-pavement- sky-pavement-sky-pavement-sky-pavement-sky
She walked away with a scrape on her wrist.

My sister has totalled more cars than you can count on all your fingers. I have lost count. My sister is a cokehead somethin' fierce.

Fred said...

yikes. car crashes? cokeheads? this site is a den. a den of satan. so can your sister send me some of this "coke" or do i have to pick it up?

nikki said...

You'll have to ask her - she hasn't looked me in the eye in years.

I'm not corrupting your sweet little blog, am I Jiggs? It was already this way, right?

jiggs said...

nikki: you can't corrupt this blog. There was a whole streak of posts that all joked about cocaine and additionally how one ought not to joke about cocaine not even joking about snorting it off of a hooker's ass.

nikki said...

Well I can certainly refrain from talking about it in the context of hookers' asses. Cool?

jiggs said...

nikki: I changed my mind. Please talk about snorting cocaine off of hooker's asses.
