Default Tard of the day. And WTHs

On the school run today i saw this. He pulled over to let me pass and a little further down the road we got to the two way. He had to drive dead center of the road 50/50 and cars had to pull onto the path to let him pass or the chunk of wood would have hit the street lights. I was laughing my head off in the car while looking through the rear view.








Just WTH...

I love the wood sticking out of that car. When I worked for Wal-mart it always amazed what people would buy knowing they drive a little hatch back. I had this one lady buy a huge swingset for her kids. One of the cart guys and myself loaded onto a cart and took it out to her car, it was a 2 door Chevy Cavalier. She insisted it would fit in the trunk. The boxes were as long as the entire car.

That's why i got the dash camera and only do 40mph with the kids in over here. I've been forced off the road that many times it's just not funny. I'm collecting footage from different trips and am going to put a compilation video up on youtube of bad drivers over here. I just hope they don;t see it and come round with pitch folks and lanterns.

Well here's a closer look just for you Ed, to remember the old days.





The guy behind the wheel looked like uncle Fester and lived in the other direction

Reminds me of Lee Evans, he said on one of his stand up comedies about wood sticking out the window of a car.

*Motorcyclist is decapitated* (not really of course).

"I dunno officer, it was like a drive-by jousting".




EDIT: Just noticed, on the main forum page it reads:

Tard of the day.

What I win?.

I worked at walmart to in electronics. Remember people coming in wanting to buy 50 inch plus Plasmas. Always told them if you buy this plasma instead of LCD you can not lay the plasma down flat to put it in the car it has to stand upright.

Them: oh no problem I have a big enough car/suv...
Me: ok because if you try to lay it flat I can not assist you in loading it into your car as it will damage it.

So we take it out and its a little volvo or cavalier or prius. First thing they do lets lay it flat....Re educate them on not doing so. "its just a short trip it will be fine"

Next day they are back with the TV. The picture is not right and colors are all wrong I didn't think laying it flat real quick would hurt......

I watched one person load a all glass TV stand that was to big into the trunk of their civic and when it would not go all the way in they tried to slam the trunk lid on the box and when they did you could hear the glass inside of it shatter and the wing on the trunk come lose from them pushing down to hard... They tried to get us to pay for the trunk lid and replace the stand..... Luckily the manager was on his way in from the parking lot and saw it happen.

That's Parcel Farce for you, losing packages then sending them in the wrong direction! That tent's heading toward the US Spoon, best order a boat to go get it.

LOL, at least they have places to park, i nearly smashed into the side of a car that pulled out from the right while i was overtaking a van, the damn fool must have gotten confused and thought he'd arrived at the shops so stopped blocking both lanes Some mothers do av em.
