WHEN IT RAINS, IT POURS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

  

When it rains, it pours in L.A.  Just ask Pete, our Friendly Neighborhood Autobody Repairman, who has been enjoying a flood of new business this week based on the fact that most Angelenos can't drive in the rain.  Take Our Favorite Starbucks, for example:  Two Baristas were in car accidents after just two days of scattered showers.  I can sympathize.  On Thursday, a Careless Buffoon in a Trailblazer accidentally Blazed a Trail right into my rear bumper, resulting in minor damage which I've already had repaired.  While I was picking up my car this morning, I witnessed the Ultimate Bonehead Accident:  An Uninsured Motorist (pictured above) crashed his Saab right into Pete's Autobody Repair, nearly plowing a hole in the wall.  "I'd better go," I said to Pete, hastily, "I can see that business is booming ...!"

I'm telling you, it's a good thing Uninsured Motorists aren't easily identifiable or I'd shoot them all.  (erm....was that out loud?)

Ouch!  It rains there and they can't drive?  My god I'd like to transport some of them here in the middle of winter.  It would be like watching bumper cars on ice!

Why is it that people don't slow down during inclement weather?  Including when the sun is shining!  The way people drive...yikes!

I've heard the same said when states rarely get snow get a mild dusting. Everyone stays home and off the streets. In NY that would be unheard of....(Hugs) Indigo
