Complete moron - HN05EOB

Spotted another Coupe driven badly? Parked like a muppet? Post the details here.

Complete moron - HN05EOB

Postby total_headcase » Thu Jun 06, 2013 9:27 pm

Driving like a total idiot (I'm talking getting close, dropping back, getting close again and weaving around a fair bit here) tailgating me in his red Gen3.5 2.0 SE for a good mile or so before deliberately going in the wrong lane at a roundabout to cut in front of me.

Definitely not the sharpest tool in the shed, silly bald middle aged bloke trying to prove a point by the look of things...

What's the crack with micra-bashing these days? don't get me wrong, it's better than the gen1/2 bashing we stomped out a few years ago.

Haha, I just let him get on with it. We get a lot of middle aged men in their mid life crisis cars and repmobiles around here who seem to think because I have a modified car, it means I want to race everyone and anyone. Besides, I don't let myself be bullied by lorries, buses, boy racers, repmobiles or any of the rest. Doesn't matter how big, fast or expensive their vehicle is, I sort my own insurance, tax and MOT so I have as much right to be in the roads as they do.

But naaaah, it's not worth wasting petrol on them - They'll get caught out eventually. Then I'll just laugh at them :D

I didn't see it as bashing, just joking really. If we can't joke on here then what's the point. If you're going to be that politically correct then let's stomp out the words-moron, bald and middle aged! :roll:

Dont' mind you picking on the micra, just noticed a number of people joking about it recently and wondered if there was an official anti-micra rising :)

I am happy to take FULL blame for this :D , and yes I hate them with a passion, it all stemmed from when I hired them in Ireland for work. I could not find a comfortable driving position and always ended up with a bad back. It got so bad that I would refuse the hire car if it had Nissan on the key. Even the getz and the Atoz were more comfortable. So YES I hate Micras and am not ashamed to say so :P

i find that openly pointing and laughing at them does the trick or if you do give the loud pedal a blip to see them off and they eventually catch you just look at your watch as they get level then ...point and laugh again haaaaa not that id ever condone such behaviour :)

Lol, I've never owned or driven one - my lowest point was a 1.1 Mark1 Fiesta that i borrowed briefly. One word describes that experience - grim :cry: .
However, I did work with a guy who had one, his journey to work involved some motorway travel (in the inside lane, but at 50mph!) and he regularly arrived at work completely baffled by the fact that lorries were passing him flashing and beeping on the motorway. :shock: lol
:D :D :D

Ps - he was middle-aged, but not bald......hmmmmn? ;)

*edit
I'm middle-aged too :rotfl :rotfl Omg! lol

It's a sobering realisation when that fact sinks in. I always thought I'd be long dead before I reached the age I'm at now, or at least be on all sorts of medication. Truth is, I still feel the same as I did then and I'm actually not taking any drugs - unlike back then when I practically rattled when I moved :D :D

As for Micras: My dislike for them - beyond the fact they just look hideous - stems from their original NCAP rating of zero. Yes, they used to be so unsafe, you would have stood a better chance of surviving an accident by getting out of it and lying in the road!

I had 88mph out of my Mk1 Ford Fiesta 957cc, oh the memories, you lot have not lived until you have tried that with the engine at 160 decibels, great for the pumping heart, mind you I was 17 years old.

If you're going to be that politically correct then let's stomp out the words-moron, bald and middle aged! :roll:

The difference here being, I wan't being politically incorrect - I was stating fact.

My judgment was based on the following:

Anyone who drives like he did is a moron.
He was clearly middle aged (I'm classing middle aged as mid 40s to late 50s).
And he had a massive bald patch with a slight bit of stubble around the edges.

I know we were all joking, but I'm not one for personal insults against people...

No you got me wrong! I wasn't saying it was wrong to mention-'moron, bald and middle aged'. Blimey- most of us are one of those three! No I just felt I was being jumped on for mentioning the said car and was making a point that It seemed a bit over sensitive when LIDL went on about stomping out things. Sounds like the guy was bald, middle aged and a moron and now I will stop mentioning my dislike of the said car as I may get told off or stomped on. My dad did have one though, and he did run over my foot with it once! :shock:

You probably did more damage to the car than it did to you. *Bring on the discipline for criticising crappy car* :twisted:

Haha, my lass's mother has a Micra. That means I'm qualified to give a negative opinion on it, right? :D

It is not politically incorrect to bash the micra, this should be done at every opportunity. They have taken over from the Metro and Austin 1100 before that, as the weapon of choice of the vehicular challenged. They are usually hesitantly driven and will take over 10 mins to park, change lane without rhyme or reason, drive at 50mph on the motorway, indicate left on a roundabout but turn right etc. etc. you get the picture ;)
