Not Happy I almost got hit by a beemer this morning....

....and I was walking on the feckin pavement!

Some bright spark in a 328 decided he was too good to join the rest of the traffic light queue this morning, so put two wheels up on the pavement and drove alongside the waiting traffic until he got to the front.

So the precious saving of oooh, 10 seconds, warrants stupid driving then.

Unfortunately by the time I'd registered what was going on, it was too late to aim a kick at the rear bumper, as he must have been doing 10+mph.

That's another reason I don't like Beemer drivers.

Re: I almost got hit by a beemer this morning....

Nearly got hit buy a beemer driver tonight...

On way home from conference at heritage motor centre - museum shut until next week for repairs boo hoo! ;-( car lloses power one in front of me - car infront of me slams on hard squirms, boobles and just misses, I'm slowing down with plenty of space, having to brake harder than usual as the broken car has gone from 70 to 30 very quickly...

Next thing there's this beemer right up my arse starting to get it's back end twitching...

I get a phonecall (hands free of course) - "****ing hell - you nearly had me for a passenger ha ha !"...

MY mate who has also been at the event and was behind me nearly ended up driving at full whack in his 5 series into the back of me ... I was of course starting to wish I'd specced brown leather rather than black....

Oh well ...

Beemer drivers - us reformed ones are the worst!

Re: I almost got hit by a beemer this morning....

Much as I'm trying not to highlight the german marques when criticising other drivers a mid-40s "lady" in an oldish 323 gave me a familiar hand signal as I overtook her the other day...at 80mph

Not really necessary as she'd blocked me for the previous mile but I'd behaved myself....

Yes.. ******! (This is you we're talking about... )

If you were on foot, you could have thrown yourself in front of it.

The Plod would have sent the driver to the gulag for 100 years..

NHS would have fixed you for free..

Beemer would be fanged/restyled for the better..

Tme off work..

And you'd have compo' anyway...

Gotta be worth a bit of pain..
