its sad when kids like this one right here roam the streets. so many innocent have suffered cuz of this
i remember that last year... somewhere along october i believe it was, i had gone to my friend Jay's house (the 'lude guy) n i met some friends of him from his neighborhood. one of them, a spoiled rich kid happening to be 14 years old, was a bit surprised by my car, so he went to his house and took out his dad's Miata just to show off to me (no idea why). so ok, i had a laugh and the neighbordhood is a REALLY small one (the roads are in the shape of an A, and thats it, just an A, and the road in total length is only like 800 meters long or so). and it was 9pm, so no one was around walking, it was safe. then he requested me to give a trip around the block (inside the hood), and i accepted. wat could possibly go wrong travelling at 15mph?
well, he decided to show off some more and stepped on the gas on the stretch we were (we were on the left corner of the A, and the top part of the A is actually two 90 degree turns connected to a small stretch in the middle). i followed him but not stepping hard since we would come up to a hard turn soon. so long before we reach, i slow down the car to a safe speed, but he doesnt. instead, he tries to do wat Jay claims to be perfect at, drifting with the handbreak without slowing down or moving the weight in any way. he didnt just cut into the corner with the handbreak and WOT, he also took the corner from the inside instead of an outside-to-inside manner.
all i could see was his car jump, which i thought it had just taken the speed bump really hard. he then stops and i notice the speed bump is still further ahead, he gets down and tells me, "man, i lost the wheel". i kept telling him to stop joking cuz it was a stupid joke. then i noticed that the owners of the house where he had crashed came out, so i got curious and looked at his car. he had f***ed up the front bumper and killed the entire front axle and both left rims. seems he ran into the sidewalk and hit their mailbox (cement one).
they almost killed him there. hell, almost all of us almost killed him for being a stupid ass. worst thing was that he had another friend of ours as a passenger, and put his life in danger too. to make things worse, we had to drag his car down the entire neighborhood to park it in his house which took us 2 hours. the tire was stuck in the fender and we had to put the spare so it would move a bit. just when things couldnt get worse, his parents arrived and he lied to them.
his story was, "a Dodge Ram jumped over the sidewalk and hit the car and ran".
1) just imagine a Ram hitting a Miata, or better yet, running over the little thing.
2) there is a palm tree right where the Ram would have to jump over in order to hit the car unless it can pull off perfect 90 degree turns at 30mph.
3) his sister's Highlander was in the way as well, and somehow, there were no skid marks or anything. oh wait, yes there were, he scraped the grass thats in front of the sidewalk and painted the street with a grey paint spray!!
a week later, he told his parents the truth, and they only grounded him for one weekend. in many cases, i blame the parents for kids like these, specially the rich spoiled brats like my very smart friend. nowadays, he says that the tires were the problem, cuz they didnt grip well enough like Jay said they should (way to go Jay......).
yea.... these are the type of people i have to put up with and educate, and then they bitch at me cuz i supposedly pretend to be the best and know everything. i know im not and that i dont, but i sure as hell know alot more than them and atleast i dont tell little kids to go drifting and tell everyone im gonna be a millionaire cuz i play in a christian punk band (im not kidding, jay does that).
