[3/365 | 03.01.2011] Got Hit and Ran!

    Newer Older

    My mom asked me to go fill up her Mazda. So I did. I was going to document today that gas prices have gotten too high but on my way back home from the gas station something occurred...

    I pulled into a small tight street with cars parked on both sides. It was practically a one lane street because of the illegally parked cars on the right side.

    There was this thug on a bike. I noticed him in the distance as he was riding his bicycle in the middle of this tight road.

    As I approached he proceeded to ride his bicycle in swerves in front of me, obviously on purpose.

    I honk... so he stops and throws his middle fingers in the air, "Yo guyy, wutchyu wan. Fuk yeeou!" He proceeded to say that he had a gun and so on... I then arose my hands in an "Okay sorry what ever" way. He got back on the bike and rode off.

    At this point, (if you know me, you'll know that I have no patience for thugs and their behaviour) I was peeved! Quite peeved as a matter of fact.

    As I passed him, I sped up and his back proceeded to hit the mirror of the car. DON'T WORRY THOUGH! The mirror was just fine! Not even a scratch! I watched as he fell off the bike.

    I then yelled, "Don't compare a gun to a 2 ton moving brick!" I should have come up with something a bit more clever to say but I don't think he'd understand. As for the thug, he was just fine as he got up and swore.

    This isn't the first time I've come across thugs and guns so I wasn't that afraid... Just a tad though :P.

    As for the bike, it was probably stolen.

    Toronto is a great city but there is too much gang activity!

    As for the people that think it's a hit and run let me assure you it's not.

      Pioneer seems to have the cheapest gas everywhere! They want $1.109/L here where the Esso's and Petro Canada's want $1.134/L! As for the thug, you acted the same way I would have! :) Internet Highfive!

    8. MSVG 51 months ago | reply

      Lol! Internet High Five!

      Yes, That is why I only use Pioneer or Cango. Esso and Petro Canada are way too expensive!

      great photo, great story! Be careful though!

      We are at about $3.09 per gallon (3.8L) so your road taxes or whatever make driving up there suck more than here! So much for crossing over this spring!

      Gas prices tend to get hiked up during the holiday seasons. Darn gas stations! That's a crazy story there, glad the guy didn't go all crazy and whip out his gun if he did have one.

      Far too many idiots out there.... Here it's the pointless honking of horns that often irritates me. It would probably irritate even more if I actually drove.

      I love your rendition of the thug accent!

      That's not a hit and run, more like you put some sense into that person. Toronto is a great city, but people like that ruin it. Do be careful though because most of the time, people like that don't think before they do something. I'm glad you weren't too afraid.
