A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

RUNNING ARGUMENT


Is it all men who think women with a powerful car wants to drag race out of the gate after being stopped at a traffic light?

OK, I can understand two young punks in Corvettes neck to neck revving the engines and giving each other the eye before squealing the tires and laying a track as the light turns green. But not some woman in a Grand Prix next to a middle-age man in a classic Chevelle.

The guy in the Chevelle might want to race or believe the woman is in a hurry to beat him to the next light, but she's only thinking about what kind of fabric she wants to upholster her sofa with or how good she looks in a fast car.

She might take off like a bat out of hell because she's late, but I don't think it's likely that she wants to floor it to show the guy next to her a thing or two about muscle cars.

Then again, I could be wrong. I have noticed an awful lot of young girls lately chomping at the bit and then give this grandma the finger as they whiz by.

Hey Pete,

I only post blogs when I have something worthwhile to say. Posting blogs with useless verbiage is a waste of everyone's time.

Here's the finger to you, old cogger anonymous.

Blogging is fun no matter what you have to say. And, I'm still beautiful as I jet off in my Ford Focus.

Brittany,

When you grow up you should learn how to spell. It's sometimes useful in the adult world.

Anyone who has to go around repeating how "beautiful" one is, has to have a problem with self-respect. Many young coggers do.

Hey Brittany,

Most of us speak English, not youngspeak. If you learned to cummunicate in English, it might raise your level of self respect.
