driving stories

I meant to post this the other day when I heard it. I was feeling blue on the drive home and was listening to CBC when they reported this tidbit which brightened my mood. The Iranian leader, or a spokesperson for the government, issued this statement:
“Those nations who hate Iran should have their hate. And die of it.”
Now THAT is statesmanship.

I saw the craziest accident last night. This person was driving from Parksville to Nanoose with what looked like their front fender hanging off. Then their rear tire began smoking and then they were driving on the rim, sparks flying from the old go-kart track onwards. At the Arlington pub they gunned it and when we (the huge line of vehicles giving this car some room) came over the hump before the rest-stop, they’d crashed into the barrier and were slumped over the wheel. Seriously, the craziest thing I’ve ever seen on the road. I had it worked out in my head his wheels had been shot out in gang-related violence. But really it was probably a drunk driver fleeing the scene of an accident.
