On my way home from work tonight, I took my usual route. Everything was decent on the way home... stopped to help some kid out with Saab (had spark, wasn't gettin' gas, his father had left ten minutes beforehand to get a tow...), but other than that, it was the usual drive.
I get off 787, and stop at the light, preparing for my turn left onto the bridge that takes me over the Hudson. Light turns green, and the oncoming traffic is turning right onto the bridge. A bright red pickup truck, lookin' all shiny and new.
I give it the gas, take 'er on up to 3,500 RPM's, shift, wait for 3,500 RPM's, shift into third... as I'm working my way up to 3,500 again, that red truck gets on the gas, and accelerates his way to several car lengths ahead of me in a matter of seconds. He then proceeds to stick his hand out his window and wave at me, backwards.
Apparently he figured I was tryin' to race him... and here I was, sittin' in my little 90 hp Loyale, just trying to get up the bridge at a decent pace.
Who'd have figured?
'Course, then again, maybe ya had to have been there :brolleye: :-)

I'd give anything to change my skin color and blow by that guy with a white woman at my side.
This is the typical backwoods(no offense to the Troy area)mentality we find in "the valley" here in CT.Every state has its spots but some states are completely covered.
I'll bet that guy had a chain saw in that truck too.
