The benefit to a small car

is that I didn't get in an accident on the way home last night.

Some bleeding idiot in an old pickup was in the lane to the left of me.
He had an extension ladder hanging out the back - even had the red hankie tied on the end.
Apparently he forgot it was there. The yahoo forgot to signal, cut me off by whipping in front of me, so close that the ladder went swinging by over the hood of my car. I hit the brakes and the horn at the same time (a miracle in itself as I have a hard time doing them simutaneously.) He swerved back into his lane and decided to stay there until I had passed him.

If I'd been in a normal sized car that ladder would have hit my car and sent us into a crash I'm sure of it. IDIOT shouldn't have a license to drive!

My cousin is like that. He had an enormous Rebel flag that swung into the other lane occasionally attached to the back of his gigantic, loud Ford, so I feel for you.
