So a funny thing happened to me Saturday afternoon...

So I'm driving home down HWY 26 towards Sandy yesterday, and just as I get to the part that's 55 mph, this little blonde kid in a late 90's Firebird comes revving up on me. I'm doing about 60 or so, and he's just revving, speeding up, slowing down, speeding up, slowing down. I'm just minding my own business on the phone with my brother. Finally the kid floors it and ends up about 50 feet ahead of me and cuts across my lane into a turn lane. As I pass him, he honks at me.

I'm assuming he wanted to run down the highway with me, but seriously, I was in a 2006 Kia Rio5. I don't know if he thought i was something else or what, but that was the most retarded thing I had ever been a part of. I sincerely hope that kid goes home and tells someone "Dude, you won't believe it, but i TOTALLY toasted a Kia Rio on 26 today. He didn't know what happened until it was too late. I owneded his ***."

It seriously boggled my mind. The only thing close to resembling my car is the new WRX, but I CLEARLY still have Kia badging all over the car. Not to mention the WRX is a tad bigger. I asked some of my friends to see if he was a mutual friend and I just didn't recognize him, but no one said they knew anyone with a Firebird.

Maybe he didn't realize his turn signal was broken and was trying to get you to give him space so he could change lanes for his exit.

I probably should have added that he was revving me at the light before the start of the highway, too. Don't know why. He launched at the light, slowed down the let me catch up, then started the revving forward and letting off to wait for me thing.

I r teh pwns j00 in teh RIO!
