People in these little cars do the dumbest shit right in front of me. Not a week goes by in Portland where I don't have the rig sliding with the brakes locked up to avoid killing some stupid hipster who thinks its cute to fuck with trucks. I have never worked in a city where so many of the people have such a hatred for commercial trucks as Portland. People go out of their way here to fuck with trucks like its a game.
Dumb question of the day: WHY on earth would someone want to play a game of chicken with big rigs like that?? I mean, it's it really obvious that the loser would be the car, should there be an accident??
