So you remember that time I blogged about having a wreck and throwing my phone directly in the cup of water and being really kind of put out by the whole thing? Well, State Farm set me up a rental car and is promising to pay 80% of the bill up to $500 which is all well and good. No sweat, really.
But when you get into a rental car after an accident you sometimes maybe think about how awful it would be to have another accident and are at least somewhat careful. I don’t abuse stuff like cars anyway, so it’s not all that far of a stretch to kind of watch out and make sure things are… copacetic.
I say all that because my wife and I commute together and wind up seeing a lot of interesting things during our commute. Most of the time it is hilarious driving techniques by other motorists but sometimes edges on insanity. We live in the country so there is the occasional cow in the road, or the deer or the moped doing a wheelie thing. Yeah, well I didn’t know you could even do a wheelie on a moped but seeing it tonight made me wish I had ordered that camera for the car to record everything on a loop and give me a one button option to save the video.
Turns out moped wheelies are pretty common so I was able to find a representative picture for you to enjoy. I still kind of can’t believe it. Dude was totally riding the wheelie down the road around a blind curve on my side of the road headed directly for us. He deftly skirted around us and I only had to slow down some. I was annoyed at first but then the appreciation of the event hit me. I had been entertained by a young redneck who is obviously still climbing fools hill. What a treat!
