Judging by her body language, I'm guessing she's originally claimed it wasn't her fault.

[–]Neat_Petite 3468 points3469 points  (214 children)

Originally claimed it, and still claims it now even after her insurance company has found her at fault.

[–]OrderWooden 1682 points1683 points  (185 children)

Pretty much sums up the attitude of a lot of drivers in this country. If I make a mistake I'm embarrassed as hell and hold my hand up. When someone else nearly kills us both through reckless driving, i usually get swore at.

For example last week someone turned onto a road I was already on, wasn't paying attention, and was in the wrong lane coming towards me head on. I use my horn and have to do an emergency stop and they give me a barrage of abuse. It's times like that im glad I have a passenger in the car to reassure me im not actually going mad and that it is the other driver who is a massive prick.

[–]Stormaen 583 points584 points  (147 children)

Same deal with me yesterday. I live rurally so I’m always extra cautious on blind corners. But yesterday I’m coming up to a junction that joins a main road. A young lass comes screaming round on my side of the road. Had to slam my brakes on and hit the horn. She frowned and gritted her teeth at me like a 4-year-old who’s told they can’t put their fingers in plug sockets.

I’m fucking astounded some people passed a driving test. If we had those tests yearly, they’d sharp find themselves using a bus. Dickheads.

[–]DingleBerryMuncher 343 points344 points  (125 children)

I don't understand why driving licences are handed out like they're discount vouchers from the supermarket.

Make the tests exceedingly difficult and make it so they have to be retaken every x years. If anyone has serious driving offences permanently revoke their licence. I don't give a fuck about inconvenicing people, if they're too stupid to operate a vehicle, then that's their problem. Driving is incredibly dangerous but isn't really treated that way, it shouldn't be a right.

[–]Stormaen 190 points191 points  (88 children)

Personally, I think licences should be graded. I find it insane that a 17-year-old can pass their test in a 75 bhp Corsa then go out and buy a 250 bhp Merc the next day. Very few are capable (or responsible) enough to handle that jump in power. We should have graded licences. Want a 250 bhp car? Pass another test in one.

[–]ThrowawayGrowHelp 91 points92 points  (23 children)

They do that for motorbikes in my country, but I agree, it should be like that for cars also

[–]Critical-Dig 48 points49 points  (39 children)

I was going to give my daughter my car later this year and buy a new one. My car (very basic sedan) has pretty quick pick up and I’m worried about her being inexperienced in a car with something like 270 hp. Nothing to write home about but too fast for a new driver. It also handles weird at high speeds. Very touchy steering and I can see an inexperienced driver over reacting to a hazard and yanking the steering wheel and ending up spinning across the freeway.

[–]undecimbre 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Sounds like you could take her to a safety training (or whatever that kind of training is called) with that exact car. Let her learn how it handles and how it behaves in extreme conditions

[–]Gizmonsta 82 points83 points  (0 children)

The other day I had someone fly through on red, slam their brakes on and start swearing at me after nearly taking us both out, I just calmly asked back whether or not they were colour blind and had they considered why noone behind them came through

[–]GarfieldLeChat 51 points52 points  (0 children)

It’s not embarrassment it’s disbelief they would be in the wrong/over confidence.

They’ve made the same move 100’s of times before and got away with it (because other drivers have reacted quickly enough to avoid them) they cannot see why it would be different this time.

The only fight club on a long enough time line everyone’s chances drop to zero should be a watch word for all drivers but it rarely is.

[–]No_Nectarine_2099 18 points19 points  (7 children)

Did this happen to you? Oh the perils of longton bypass - the women in question was far too eager to get to Booths!

[–]divaschematic 12 points13 points  (0 children)

What if there was a discount Latham's cake? Urgent needs.

[–]26595602 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Probably decided that the truck she was overtaking was going too fast

[–]jaretok 8 points9 points  (0 children)

My coworker was texting, ran a red light, and t-boned a women turning left in an intersection. Still claims it was her fault because “she should have been looking before moving into the intersection.”

[–]Zenith2012[🍰] 95 points96 points  (4 children)

I had a drive pull in front of me to make his turn, he was coming from the other direction so turned in front of my car, I slammed the brakes on but crashed into his passenger door (UK, so he was making a right turn in front of me).

Insurance was taking a while so I contacted them and they said "the other driver insists you crashed into the back of him so it's your fault" i told them to "go look at the big dent in his passenger door where I hit him, and go speak to my witness (a lady walking past) who said there was nothing I could do to avoid crashing into him)". Few days later his insurance company contacted me to settle the claim.

People are just stupid.

[–]windol1 12 points13 points  (2 children)

People will talk absolute shit if it means getting themselves out of trouble and/or getting a cash pay out from it.

Makes me think back several years now when I was younger and came bumper to bumper with an oncoming car in the back lanes as I came out of a corner, no damage was caused as we both stopped basically the same time. Passed the details on to the insurance and after some time they call back to tell me the cheeky bitch was trying to claim paint damage to her car, I think the person on the phone could tell my mind was blown while I told them there wasn't any and any paint damage would of been from general use as we barely came into contact, let alone enough to do paint damage, after that everything went quiet and heard nothing more of it.

I do wonder if she was trying to be a cheeky bitch as I was a bit shocked by the situation and can be quite nervous in many overwhelming situations, it's that or she had a husband who wanted try and get money for nothing.

[–]Zenith2012[🍰] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Yep, the annoying thing for me is I told my insurance company at the start I had a witness who was just a member of the public. The other driver had his wife in the car who agreed with him and said I was going too fast.

If they would have contacted my witness in the first place it would have all been settled a lot quicker. Thank god I went to her house that evening to get her name and number because when she saw the accident she said "nothing you could have done, I live at No X but I've go to go get my kids, pop round later and I'll give you my details for insurance".

Sometimes feels like you have to do other people's jobs for them, even though you are paying for their services.

Edit: My dad also has a small crash with another car at an island, was my dad's fault and he knew he would have to admit it to his insurance company, but thankfully he took photos of the cars and the person driving because later they claimed injuries for 4 people and all sorts.

My dad noticed the name of the person driving was different to the person he spoke to on the day so sent photos in to the insurance company and explained he believed they were committing fraud because there was definitely 1 person driving and it wasn't the person they named. I can't remember what happened with that one was a few years back but yes, some people will say absolutely anything to either get themselves out of trouble or get some money from it (or both)

[–]OmegaUno 34 points35 points  (3 children)

That's a woman? I thought it was James May at first.

[–]windol1 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Ah, but we know it isn't him as captain slow doesn't overtake, anything.

[–]P0G0G0 5795 points5796 points  (285 children)

Why would you pull in front if you’re going to turn? One of the stupidest things I’ve ever seen

[–]ballsack_man 4153 points4154 points  (133 children)

Must pass truck. It's an undocumented genetic disorder

[–]i_forgot_my_sn_again 1189 points1190 points  (93 children)

Not just truck. Must pass anything bigger and could be slower than me. I’ve driven ups delivery, city buses, and semi. If I don’t get cut off it’s because I’m not working

[–]iammonkeyorsomething 353 points354 points  (13 children)

Everything is a race. And I'll win em all even if it kills me

[–]Moose6669 301 points302 points  (8 children)

Everything is a race, until I'm in front, then everyone must do 5 under the speed limit like me.

[–]Benaxle 48 points49 points  (5 children)

Then it's a slow race. Let's see how people last until they have to do 10 over to pass me safely! NEXT!

[–]MostDopeKnuckleH3ad 12 points13 points  (3 children)

That’s pretty much florida on a daily basis.

Got Granny going 40 in a 50 in the left lane and some dick weaving in and out of traffic in the right lane at about 70-80mph

[–]iammonkeyorsomething 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I even win the slow races

[–]beefygravy 70 points71 points  (42 children)

Don't forget smaller

[–]26595602 73 points74 points  (41 children)

Slight difference there being that at least when it's a truck it's usually their own life they're risking with there "Can I make it? Hmm...well I've waited another 10 seconds thinking and looking now so perhaps it's definitely too late to pull out? Meh...let's give it a go"

Every cyclist on the road is having drivers like this take similar risks to shave 5 seconds off their journey time "It's the one show theme tune! I gotta get home to hear ONE! Yes I've got iplayer and a tivo but it's not the same", but it's the cyclists lives they're risking not their own.

[–]Neat_Petite 99 points100 points  (0 children)

Come on, you don’t expect them to pass behind do you? That means they lose!

We can’t have that.

[–]j4ckbauer 80 points81 points  (2 children)

We have this where I drive. If the car on the left is changing into the right lane and the car on the right is changing into the left lane, each tries to make sure they cross in front of the other, even though neither ultimately cares about being in the same lane as the other so it doesn't matter how fast either is going, as long as they finish the lane change safely.

Edit: I'm talking about when the cars start out NOT right next to each other, they could change lanes without interfering with each other, instead each car feels like it has to get in front before changing lanes....

[–]Dr_fish 264 points265 points  (35 children)

So many times on the freeway I've seen cars switch lanes to overtake one or two cars only to immediately take the next exit, sometimes nearly missing their exit. Makes no fucking sense.

[–]Critical-Dig 196 points197 points  (16 children)

Couple months ago I’m on the freeway in an exit lane that exits onto another freeway. I’m already driving maybe 10 over and there is nobody behind me for… I don’t know probably half a mile. I’m in the left of the two exit lanes so there is another lane to my right and four or five lanes to my left that just continue on to travel on the freeway we are already on.

This guy comes up along side me at the last second, just traveling in the lane to the left of me. You can never be sure what idiots are going to do but I’m thinking “this guy is probably trying to pass me to get in front of me even though the road is completely clear as far back as we can see” Last second as the lanes finally truly split he decides to try to get over. I’m right next to him as the road splits and there’s a concrete median in front of him. He keeps in pace with me like I’m meant to slow down for him? I didn’t. I watched as he just headed toward the median going 80mph and had to choose between going back to his lane or crashing into the barrier. He swerved back at the last second. Like I really thought this guy was going to die. Missed his exit and risked his life all to get one car further ahead on an otherwise clear road. Stupidity? Entitlement? Both? I hate people.

[–]Yamwich 55 points56 points  (10 children)

What you described is a daily experience for me as a non-native Georgian driving in Georgia. I honestly don't think anyone here has had to take driver's ed prior to obtaining a license; the consistent, widespread bad driving is insufferable, and dangerous. I was always taught to drive defensively or to "drive for other people." I feel like I'm driving for the entire state here. Turn signals are almost never used; no one seems to have been taught how to "zipper" while traveling in the shoulder-side lane and encountering vehicles arriving from the on-ramp; and tailgating is out of control. Doesn't matter if you're in the "fast" (i.e. passing) lane trying to pass a slower-moving vehicle on a two-lane highway or on a residential road, you will be tailgated by someone. The humidity here is suffocating, but it's the bad driving that I'll miss the least when I finally move out of this hellhole.

[–]Taporter2 13 points14 points  (5 children)

If you think Georgia is bad, come on up to DC/Northern Virginia. I've lived in 10 states. This place has the worst drivers I've ever seen. I don't know how it happened, but every one here turns right before they turn left. Like they'll swing into the lane to the right of them to make a left turn. It makes zero sense. Left turns are wide as hell already. Idiot driver center of the universe.

[–]Return_Of_The_Fly 47 points48 points  (0 children)

That shit happens all the time, and it's not even limited to lorries or bikes. Some drivers will do everything to overtake you, only to nearly miss their exit and then quickly turn over 3 lanes without looking.

[–]Structureel 149 points150 points  (28 children)

People would rather eat their own shit, than drive behind a lorry.

[–]Wanderlustfull 141 points142 points  (24 children)

I don't enjoy driving behind lorries, but that's not because they drive slowly, or I've gotta be first, or fast, or like to overtake, it's because they really obscure the view of the road ahead and it feels a lot less safe when you have a hugely restricted field of view.

Normally you would be far enough back from the vehicle in front that this isn't too much of an issue, but they still block out your view somewhat, and realistically some other asshole will come and fill that gap as soon as they can because you left a tiny bit of space for them to squeeze into to get ahead.

It's especially bad if you end up in bumper to bumper traffic or similarly slow moving conditions, and you can never really tell when that's going to suddenly spring up, so for those reasons alone I tend to prefer not driving behind lorries.

But, I wouldn't pass them just to make a turn ten seconds faster.

[–]takku 31 points32 points  (13 children)

No man. I think it's safer to drive behind those. They stop slower then your car so you have time to brake. Here at winter times when it's snowing and there might be reindeers on road i could easily chill behind truck knowing it will plow all away front of me and could save little gas also.

[–]growwwwler 29 points30 points  (6 children)

It's got that "blindly following a SatNav" look to it. They can't handle that the SatNav doesn't also show other ttaffic

[–]Confident-Breath2615 7581 points7582 points  (303 children)

Cutting off the truck and giving the truck driver THAT look means idiocy runs very deep

Edit Holy cow… make an off hand remark and come back to a million upvotes - previous high was 34, I think - and a couple of awards! Thanks everyone!! Next time I’ll use proper english, i.e. saying the idiocy runs deep ;)

[–]OfSnow 3053 points3054 points  (233 children)

I get this same look when I close up at my fast food job and people come up and pull on the locked front door. Staring at me like "I know you're not open, but what about ME?" This is that, in braindead driver form.

[–]rekrapinator 1152 points1153 points  (89 children)

dude, i'll be putting up traffic cones to block off the drive thru and motherfuckers will shoot past me and try to sneak in. like, no, we're closed. just cuz u almost ran me over trying to squeeze ur dumb ass in before i had it blocked off all the way doesn't mean we're gonna serve you.

Lmfao, that’s literally how some grown as adults act too.

Customer calling into pizza place at 1:05am: “Hi I’d like place an order”

Me: “Hello, unfortunately we just closed for the night”

Customer: “WHAT?!

Me: “We’re closed.”

Customer: “ugh, then why’d you answer the phone?!”

Me: “Because I didn’t want to hear it ring.”

Customer: “unbelievable, what’s your name!?”

Me: “Have a good night.”

Customer: “FINE IM GONNA CALL CORPOR-“ click

[–]rudolph_ransom 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Customer: “unbelievable, what’s your name!?”

Me: "Joe."

Customer: "Joe, who?"

Me: "Joe Mama." - click

I imagine this as my conversation. Unfortunately, I'm German and the joke won't work that way here.

[–]Airazz 23 points24 points  (0 children)

The funniest thing is that you're not joking.

[–][deleted] 225 points226 points  (47 children)

legit cannot comprehend being this dumb. Are they so arrogant they think you HAVE to serve them because you didn't prevent them from approaching the window? These are the kinds of fuckwits who stand in front of cashiers screaming abuse over not getting a refund on something they ordered 2 days ago and have no proof of purchasing. Absolute mouth breathing degenerates.

[–]iedonis 105 points106 points  (14 children)

Yes, they are. I work in a rural café/ bar. Closed the main door (didn't lock it yet), closed the curtains, turned off the lights outside. Was going to walk a friend out the other exit, two guys come in, before they're even halfway through the door I tell them we're closed. Go outside with my friend, chat for a minute standing in the door (can't see inside from that exit, but if someone came in the main door I'd hear them). Come back, these two idiots are standing in the middle of the room, waiting for me to serve them, because "the door wasn't closed so it's open"

[–]Double-Yesterday6501 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Entitled idiots

[–]Fuzzier_Than_Normal 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Speaking for myself, ignorance isn’t always malicious entitlement.

I recently showed up at the small local hardware store at 8:58 in the morning. The door was open, so I walked in and yelled “hello!”

Nobody was around so I walked in a bit more.

“Hello?”

A woman, obviously pissed off, then came around the corner, so I said ”hi, you open?”

“No!” She replied. “9 o’clock!”

So I left. As I did, I heard her mutter under her breath, but not for me to hear, “Jesus, some people...”

To which I turned around and replied, “hey, sorry, I didn’t know if you started your summer hours yet or not.”

I caught her off-guard for acknowledging the low-key insult.

So I stand outside for a few minutes, then finally go in to buy my bag of nails. Grumpy lady made no eye contact with me at all during check out.

[–]sittinwithkitten 15 points16 points  (6 children)

Please tell me you didn’t have to serve them.

[–]iedonis 38 points39 points  (5 children)

I was closing alone, so no, i just politely insisted that I would not serve them, started cleaning, and they left. They complained to my boss afterwards, but he didn't bother me with it

[–]anomalous_cowherd 24 points25 points  (1 child)

On the other hand there was a pub once with a banner proudly saying "Serving food all day Sunday".

We went in at 10am on a Sunday and all the staff were there but were sat around chatting and looked at us like we were mad.

"We're not open until 12".

How about not putting the lights on outside, opening the door and having a huge sign suggesting you were open "All Day" then?

[–]iedonis 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That's the other way of being stupid..

[–]Tamaros 60 points61 points  (2 children)

But your door is unlocked.

Yeah, there's customers inside who got food before closing time so they can finish. Fire code mandates the doors remain unlocked. The window sticker still states the closing time so fuck off.

I'm so glad to be out of that industry.

[–]Xantuos 19 points20 points  (0 children)

It’s because you actually have working brain cells

[–]tomytronics 159 points160 points  (36 children)

Had that when the store I worked at closed early before Christmas day. They're normally 24 hours but they closed at 6 PM.

A dozen employees, including me, volunteered for overnight clean up after the store closed. I lost the number of times people came up to the door expecting to be let in for that "one thing they forgot" and did everything including puppy eyes and pleading.

When we're closed, we're closed. I don't care if "Santa" forgot to get something for the kids oir you forgot to get turkey for the dinner, you had chance all month to get something.

PS was worth the night shift. Got overnight premium and holiday premium in my pay (50% of normal pay rate) plus the manager gave away several huge cookies tray (it would have expired before the store opened on 26th), 10-15 lbs (4.5 to 7kg) ham just because, and some poinsettias.

[–]reddog323 82 points83 points  (26 children)

I used to work checking and stocking groceries back in the day. The day before thanksgiving was nuts….and there was always the idiots near closing time. The guy who dashes in to the frozen section three minutes before closing, then runs out, looking panicked and yells DON’T YOU PEOPLE HAVE ANY TURKEYS??

No sir, we ran out two hours ago.

None at all?? Can you check in back??

I never knew what they were expecting. Maybe we missed one? Not on that day. The other kind of idiot was the guy who runs in on that day ten minutes before closing for “a few things”, and shows up at the register five minutes after closing with a $300 order.

[–]Girl-In-A-PartsStore 68 points69 points  (3 children)

I have a customer who would brag that he made us stay late just because he could. I finally got tired of it and told him it was fine, but I’m going to charge a premium “bullshit fee” every time he did. That was the last time he pulled that shit too.

(We’re independent, so we don’t answer to corporate, and my boss gives me a lot of leeway when it comes to dealing with assholes. I couldn’t do that if I worked on the company side.)

[–]m945050 52 points53 points  (3 children)

My wife used to come home with "you wouldn't believe what this idiot did today" stories almost every day. One day when she stayed late to do inventory a woman showed up after midnight and demanded that they open for her because she had some VERY important shopping she needed to do. After they refused she called the police and after they showed up she ordered them to break the doors down. They started to give her a sobriety test when she slapped and kicked one of the officers. She traded her shopping for jail time.

[–]reddog323 17 points18 points  (0 children)

she slapped and kicked one of the officers

I don’t know what she expected at that point, but I’m sure she didn’t get it.

[–]HoneyDippinDan 39 points40 points  (1 child)

I did a stint working the Christmas season at KayBee Toys. It was Christmas Eve and the mall was about to close. We already had our security gate down to let customers know we were closing soon. Some guy ducked under the gate and I let him know we were about to close. He told me he just needed a couple things and asked for three toys that were the hot toys that season. Told him we had been sold out for weeks. He then asked if we'll get any more shipments before Christmas. I'm like, in the next two minutes? No.

[–]iceixia 11 points12 points  (0 children)

That reminds me of the warehouse picking job I had. We had a headset that told us what to pick. When I tried to sleep at night all I could hear was that damn thing.

Order 420 has a customer count of 1 position 1 customer has a large pallet count of 2 and a weight of 69, quantity of 111. Say ready

Drove me fucking insane.

PTSD from my last shift 1 hour ago

[–]Lustle13 70 points71 points  (1 child)

pull on the locked front door.

Oh god. I just had a flashback of a guy that did this at a place I used to work.

Worked the parts counter, me and another 5 guys. We all showed up early, good 10-15 minutes. Fire up our computers. Get signed in. Grab coffee or a snack or whatever.

We are all sitting there, it's a solid 10 minutes before we open. Half the shit isn't even turned on, including our lights. Guy walks up. Looks at our hours. Looks at his watch. Then pulls on the door. CLANK. Gets a confused look, pulls again. CLANK CLANK. One of my coworkers leans sideways past his screen, looks at the dude trying the door, and in the driest voice says to himself "you fucking dumbass", then leans back. We all just sit there chuckling. Meanwhile, idiots got his hands up to look through the door, can obviously see us, so tries the door again. CLANK. Like what you dumb fuck? In the amount of time since your first try you think one of us teleported, magically unlocked the door without you noticing, and it's suddenly unlocked? The idiocy was real.

Right at opening time, boss goes and opens the door. Guy, who stood there the whole time, steps in. Makes some snide "Boy, you guys open right on time huh" comment. Then the door catches his ankle because he stopped in the doorway to get his shot in. Guy catches the door on the ankle, yelps, then jumps in the store like a bit dog. The idiocy continues.

I think I said something along the lines of "bad day huh? what can we do for you." before one of the more asshole older parts guys dug into him too much lol.

"What if I pay cash?!" Why the fuck does that make a difference?!

[–]Dray_Gunn 12 points13 points  (3 children)

I know some places will turn off the card machines(dunno what people call them in other countries, we call it Eftpos here) a little bit before they close off the registers. Some places do this a bit before their actual closing time. Not that i am excusing them doing that AFTER actual closing time. Just saying where they might get the idea that cash makes a difference

[–]PsykoFlounder 12 points13 points  (0 children)

We close/count out our registers when we close the store. If anything I'm more likely to let someone come in as I'm locking the door if they're paying with a card, because I've more than likely already counted my cash.

Ugh. I walked in to a Bread Co. this evening. A guy in his early 60’s and his wife were walking out after talking to the counter guy. He looked like he’d bitten into a lemon. The entitlement was strong in this one.

Me: Are they closed?

Him: That’s what HE says. It doesn’t look closed to me! 8 o’clock??What the FUCK’S the matter with these people?! They want $15 an hour?! FOR WHAT?? -stomps off to Jeep Cherokee-

For dealing with assholes like yourself. You’ll have to wait to get your broccoli cheddar soup in a bread bowl until tomorrow.

[–]chuckle_puss 62 points63 points  (10 children)

As if the minimum wage employees decide opening and closing hours! Stop getting your political talking points from Facebook, old man.

[–]StarshipSentinel 33 points34 points  (8 children)

I find it interesting how Facebook started out as a young adult's thing and now it's overflowing with angry boomers.

[–]chuckle_puss 23 points24 points  (7 children)

It is interesting, as well as infuriating. Zuckerberg saw the money that could be made through propogandizing the masses, and the rest is history.

[–]StarshipSentinel 22 points23 points  (5 children)

Fuckerberg is just another parasitic billionaire.

[–]mafuckinjy 30 points31 points  (1 child)

We don’t open til 3 now and fuckheads will come in the side door that’s for employees to enter at 2:30 and demand to be seated bc they’re inside and I always say yeah you can sit down however nobody will be there to server you until after 3 and after we’ve served the people patiently waiting in line first. “THIS is ridiculous! Fine you won’t be getting my business” oh thank god bye!

[–]SlowRollingBoil 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Assholes don't understand that businesses don't want asshole customers. Threatening to never come back is a blessing.

[–]NobodyWhatsoever 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I got the same when I worked retail, too.

[–]Nowheretoturn48 321 points322 points  (9 children)

Not to mention the fact that she "pulled over" with 85% of her car still on the road...

...and she goes back to her car without even checking for drivers coming down the road...

...then she swings her door wide open to be even farther out onto the road.

[–]redpandaeater 131 points132 points  (2 children)

No hazards either. Probably doesn't even know how to turn them on.

[–]dragon_bacon 144 points145 points  (0 children)

Of course she does, those are the lights that let you park wherever you want!

[–]SuchDifficulty9070 103 points104 points  (16 children)

Always invest in a good dash cam!

[–]conradical30 36 points37 points  (12 children)

Are we about at the point where they become standard on all cars? Don’t Teslas come equipped with cams?

[–]SuchDifficulty9070 20 points21 points  (9 children)

yeah they do. & I agree, I tell everyone I know to get one.

[–]smol_mcstabby 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Do you know any good dashcams I could get when I get a car?

[–]SuchDifficulty9070 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I personally have the “Apeman Dash Cam” it’s on Amazon. It works really well & I love it!

[–]mcorra59 19 points20 points  (0 children)

He looked at the truck driver so surprised, it was almost unsettling haha

[–]PDCH 1540 points1541 points  (36 children)

I believe the truck driver's commentary was a spot on description of the dude in the car.

[–]surfmasterNot quite god 410 points411 points  (5 children)

That was actually the voice command to get the camera to save the recording

[–]crzyd46 105 points106 points  (0 children)

That was indeed the best part

[–]Mortomes 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Machine learning has come a long way.

[–]waistedmenkey 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Didn't realize this had audio, thanks!

[–]shhbedtime 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It's so much better with audio

[–]MancunianPieHead 63 points64 points  (5 children)

Was that a dude? The jury is still out on that one.

[–]deewhite1967 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Think it's a woman looking at the shoes. Either way a stupid daft twat.

[–]derHuschke 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Yeah I'm not sure on that one either. We need a forensic expert.

[–]mark_b 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I don't think you want to go there. Frankly I'd rather just be wrong.

[–]bright_shiny_objects 2140 points2141 points  (37 children)

Did fucking James May get out of that car?

[–]ohdope2000 552 points553 points  (12 children)

He would only have done that if it was Clarkson driving the truck.

[–]Pentium4HT 195 points196 points  (2 children)

Clarkson you pillock, look what you’ve done to my car.

[–]delcaek 48 points49 points  (0 children)

That’s the OG Captain Slow right here.

[–]gordo65 141 points142 points  (4 children)

I think the dialogue would have been the same.

[–]Dr_fish 108 points109 points  (2 children)

Cuts to Hammond speeding past them triumphantly laughing.

[–]act167641 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Before rolling it at 130mph, as is tradition.

[–]comdude2 39 points40 points  (0 children)

How could you not be familiar with “HAMMOND!!!!!!”

[–]Mushiren_ 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Hammond you blirthering idiot yer supposed to let me take the turn!

[–]VulgarDreamer44 47 points48 points  (1 child)

Welcome to the bottom gear

[–]splittingheirs 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Didn't see a machete in his hand, so I doubt it.

[–]MoeHockey24 32 points33 points  (0 children)

No, he would’ve been driving a lot slower.

[–]redditflyonthewall 550 points551 points  (9 children)

Man, if you're going to cut me off, get out out of the way!

[–]on-a-cornflake 75 points76 points  (1 child)

Honestly, if she'd just pulled over a bit more she would have made it. Not saying that it's not a stupid move, but it's the difference between being an annoying twat and being an annoying twat that ruins two people's days.

[–]anaemic 24 points25 points  (2 children)

I can't belive you've done this.

[–]therationalists 106 points107 points  (7 children)

$%+%*# … say a command

[–]Shady_hatter 22 points23 points  (1 child)

He probably should change the activation command.

[–]Legend_of_dirty_Joe 446 points447 points  (12 children)

duhhh i'm gonna stand here with a halfwit look on my face... duhhhh look at the truck driver.... look at my car.... look at the truck driver... look at my car...

[–]Metaphorazine 139 points140 points  (3 children)

"But why is the back of my car broken?"

[–]Procrastibator666 32 points33 points  (0 children)

The posture when she's just standing there says everything. I don't think I've ever seen 'dumb' expressed so well by just standing.

[–]WeakEmu8 85 points86 points  (4 children)

So glad an expensive lesson was learned, and there was a camera.

[–]cokey285 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Not a lesson since they'll do it again. People like this can't comprehend simple task. I'm a tow truck driver.

[–]Residual_Marinara 357 points358 points  (5 children)

Don't fucking look at me like that lady...

[–]OlRoy60 454 points455 points  (18 children)

But the GPS said turn left!

[–]Deodorized 508 points509 points  (11 children)

Great drivers will sometimes miss their exits.

Bad drivers will never miss their exits.

[–]stanagetocurbar 146 points147 points  (2 children)

The video definitely shows a bad driver missing their exit lol 😉

[–]porkin4what 100 points101 points  (1 child)

Thats what you think. After the video she reverses all the way back to the turn.

[–]bluesqueblack 25 points26 points  (2 children)

That one was forced to miss though.

[–]K3R3G3 39 points40 points  (3 children)

Her/His defense will likely be "but I signaled", as though that excuses all actions in all scenarios and all must yield, regardless of the limitations of safety and physics itself.

[–]Neat_Petite 14 points15 points  (0 children)

The number of people I know who forget that they’re called ‘indicators’ to indicate you left intentions.

I think they paid extra to upgrade to ‘rightofwayers’ where as long as they’re flashing you can do what you want..

[–]StoneyMahoney13 585 points586 points  (36 children)

The way she stands there and looks at him like it’s his fault, fucking urks me

[–]tazamachoochoo 181 points182 points  (29 children)

*irks

[–]K3R3G3 61 points62 points  (2 children)

He meant the other version...it makes him feel like Steve Urkel. That's a thing, being Urked.

[–]wriddell 52 points53 points  (2 children)

I'm sure the first words out of her mouth were something like " look what you've done to my car".

[–]ydoiwantreddit 17 points18 points  (1 child)

No, look what you've done to your car. 🙄

[–]PlasticOceanFish 232 points233 points  (12 children)

Stupid twat. Good way to die for a late turn.

[–]cheapdrinks 50 points51 points  (4 children)

Even more stupid was getting out and standing directly in between the truck and the rear of her car while they're both stopped on an active roadway in the wet. She would have been pancaked if someone had rear ended that truck.

[–]bubblemedialtd[S] 78 points79 points  (5 children)

Idiots, idiots everywhere!

[–]PrestigiousCourse579 46 points47 points  (3 children)

Right? What kind of moron cuts off a large vehicle to make a quick turn? She needs a lot of lessons about physics and how to drive like an adult. Never cut off a large vehicle the stopping power is not there. She deserves to pay for all the fixes to your rig and her car. Let it be a lesson to her the hard way.

[–]Baybob1 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I think we all just learned what kind of moron cuts off a large vehicle to make a quick turn.

[–]pissingintherain1220 170 points171 points  (15 children)

BUT SHE INDICATED!

[–]flipfloppery 92 points93 points  (14 children)

Oh that properly boils my piss. The amount of folks that think an indicator establishes a right if way is off the chart!

[–]JonsonPonyman98 16 points17 points  (11 children)

Yea fr. I signaled apparently means the same thing as:

I signaled well in advance, I made space to turn, and I had time to turn

[–]flipfloppery 17 points18 points  (10 children)

Not long ago I had some spaffrocket in a twatpanzer decide that he wasn't going to wait for me to pass him (dual carriageway/highway) before overtaking the truck in front of his Audi. He indicated as he started to pull across, even though I was next to him and proceeded to challenge me to a roadside fight after I honked him to let him know he was about to wipe both of us out.

[–]JonsonPonyman98 5 points6 points  (9 children)

I’m going to assume those words mean dickhead and rich person car, respectively.

Yea that guy sounds like a dickhead

[–]flipfloppery 7 points8 points  (8 children)

Yup. A twatpanzer is a full-size SUV; as they're the size of tanks and invariably driven by twats. I could've said "Chelsea tractor" but this one was definitely driven by a twat.

[–]Dacia1320S 27 points28 points  (2 children)

The ones that overtake and immediately after turn in front of you are the fucking worst.

[–]hiimnormal11 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Meanwhile no other cars are behind you and they could have just waited 2 seconds

[–]Qcgreywolf 600 points601 points  (126 children)

I love all idiots in the comments vomiting out “hurrrrrr, he didn’t slam on the brakes!?!”

Fucking twats are likely the same people that end up in accidents in the rain, slamming on the brakes.

[–]sunshadowsburn 309 points310 points  (61 children)

Not to mention according to the cam the truck was going 50, and stopping distances are doubled in rain, and he was in a truck which judging by the fact that the entire back of the car was not visible at the moment of impact and the horn was a semi, not just a large pickup (which shouldn't be common in what I assume to be somewhere in the UK anyway). Anyone who's ever even driven a one ton pickup in dry conditions knows it doesn't stop quickly. Now multiply that by between 7.5 and 44 (assuming the US one is in metric tons, otherwise those numbers will actually be larger) and remember that inertia exists and wow, it's almost as if driving like an idiot in front of a big truck has consequences!

[–]NotTheKJB 39 points40 points  (0 children)

I know this road v well, that bit where she braked was downhill too.

[–]InglouriousBrad 163 points164 points  (2 children)

Now, just walk a little further into the next lane and wait for the next truck.

[–]HamiltonButler01 20 points21 points  (0 children)

She gets what she fucking deserves

[–]TheOnlyWayIsUp-Baby 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I love how even the truck knew

[–]39UL 83 points84 points  (9 children)

I bumped a guy that did this to me a few months ago, slower rate of speed.

He got out all “dumbfounded” as to how I could have hit him, I didn’t say a word just pointed to my windshields.

He quickly glanced at his car and said “well there’s no damage and I don’t see any on your truck I guess we can just forget it”, yeah I said and he quickly got in his car and left.

I only had to point at the two cameras and say the word yeah, and that was that.

$20 for a cheap dash cam, no reason not to have one.

[–]Abaddononon 38 points39 points  (5 children)

After that beep I was expecting.. you have been fined one credit for...

[–]moosehead71 28 points29 points  (4 children)

...violation of the verbal morality statute?

[–]DirtyPrancing65 38 points39 points  (0 children)

What do you mean trucks can't stop on a dime just because I'm missing my turn?? - this audacious B

[–]FaceGlittering 39 points40 points  (3 children)

"You F Stupid F C" *beep* "send command"

LMFAO

[–]Grogmeisterr 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I feel like he's got that dashcam on sentence recognition.

'You fooken shtoopid fooken coont'

Sending command

[–]ThatGuyNoOneRemember 46 points47 points  (4 children)

Let me get this straight. OP isn’t at fault here, is not responsible for the accident yet people on this subreddit are still calling truck driver an idiot or blaming them? That’s irritating.

Edit: yeah, yeah I know. “DeFeNsIvE dRiViNg”

[–]nordoceltic82 12 points13 points  (0 children)

To be fair by the time I got around to reading this thread, it would seem those people were all downvoted into oblivion. So thankfully there is still some justice in the world.

[–]Return_Of_The_Fly 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Victim blaming is a tradition on this sub, it seems.

[–]used_condominium 28 points29 points  (4 children)

Lmao why do they look like James May

[–]KingCodyBill 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Hey he's in a hurry and just didn't want to be behind a truck, and he's not😎

[–]fortunehunter00000 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Is that James May? Lolol

[–]OfficialSamsdottodot 7 points8 points  (5 children)

That’s why you don’t cut people off. Especially if you are just gonna slow down

[–]ReynoldsHouseOfShred 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I LOVE the look at car damage, then the look to the other driver like its not the car drivers fault lmao

[–]DrMux[🍰] 25 points26 points  (0 children)

This reminds me of a time I got cut off and literally had to stop the car because the wankers nearly crashed into me. They took up two lanes in a small car just like that and nearly ended me.

[–]SnakeBeardTheGreat 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The look on her face like how could you do this to me didn't you see me driving here.

[–]OfficialAlarkiusJay 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I laughed way too hard at the lady's stare lmao

[–]Dallanation 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Not sure if that was a woman or James may?

[–]toguedrifter 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I love how they just get out and stand there
