MR. BONEHEAD RIDES AGAIN ... AT 6TH AND IDAHO


Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Mr. Bonehead, the Sunday Driver who almost "took me out" this afternoon as I walked from Our Favorite Starbucks to the Third Street Promenade. The fun began when I was crossing Idaho, just one block South of Montana. I was midway through the intersection of Idaho and 6th when the Bonehead (pictured above) came barrelling out of nowhere driving a Bright Yellow Chrysler and very nearly hit me. He made an illegal U-Turn on 6th, grabbed one of the few available parking spaces and jumped out of his car, oblivious to the fact that he had almost hit me. I glared at him and pulled out my Spycam. He turned to face me. "It's for the Internet," I said, "I'm writing-up a special profile on Bonehead Drivers ...!"

Did you ask him "Where's the fire, Bub?" On second thought, that might be in poor taste at the moment. :/

I would have pointed more than just my camera at this irresponsible dude!

Glad you are safe.

Hugs, Rose

The yellowness of his vehicle apparently temporarily blinded him. Glad you nimbly avoided his driving prowess :o)

You are lucky, Marty, that you didn't run into the little old lady from Pasadena! She drives really fast and she drives really hard, she's the terror of colorado Blvd.....and I'm sure Montana and 7th are within her range!
