I Hate California Drivers

Yes it’s true. I am originally from the great state of Oregon and we were all taught at a young age that we should hate Californians because they are buying up all our real estate and driving around town in their fancy cars like maniacs on a rampage. Today, more than ever, I hate California drivers.


You wanna know why? I’ll tell you why: I was driving through the streets of the The District at Tustin Legacy and the car in front of me (a lovely Accord hybrid) was driving down the parkway, minding her own business when out of nowhere a New Beetle slammed into her car. Both vehicles spun around. I stopped the car, put on my hazards and got out to see if the driver was okay. She was visibly shaken and the entire driver’s side was smashed in – poor lady was crying and couldn’t even get out of the Accord because the doors wouldn’t open.

Once me and some other random citizen were assured of the driver’s safety (we called 911) I decided it was time to leave. I got back in my car and began to try and back out. This was no easy task, because the streets there are of the divided parkway variety with gaps every few hundred feet. Anyway, here’s the part the just enraged me: my fellow citizens felt the best way to assist me with moving off the street was to honk their horns incessantly and refuse to stop, slow down or make room for me to leave. Apparently they felt, you know, that I needed to be punished for checking on the well being a fellow human. Really? Is that what we’ve come to? This isn’t New York. This isn’t even LA. We’re supposed to better than this. Bunch of brain dead monkey f@#kers – why I aughtta…

So I ask you this, why are you honking at me and flipping me off and refusing to be kind? Am I slowing down your breakneck dash to Starbucks? Am I making you late to a life saving surgery? Am I making you turn off your cruise control? Or are you just a dick, plain and simple?

    Jon, you did the right thing. I wish more people would care for others then care for themselves.

    Yes Jon you did the right thing stopping. I always stop and wish once someone would stop and be a witness for me.

    Dick’s are everywhere, not just LA. If you really want to experience bleeting horns and other nastiness not unlike a 3rd world country take a drive up our way and see how the Glendalians behave. You’ll find the rest of us as quite civilized.
