I'm Not Even Kidding: Invitation to Road Rash

I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.

 

We were taking the leisurely route to  pick up more paint for the barn, when Mr. Daddy and I both looked at each other in astonishment.

 

Did you just see that???

 

Yes indeedy… someone on a motorcycle with a text message that just couldn’t wait.

Even more horrifying – Googling “motorcyle texting” to find this photo, and realizing how many videos had captured the same scene.

Be safe out there, k?

Please note the scaryness factor of the guy on the motorcycle using a flip cam to record the guy on the other motorcycle texting! Yikes!

About 5 minutes ago, I heard one of our guests say "You can't fix stupid, you can only hope it doesn't breed" Somehow I feel like it applies here...

I'm with Bill. Let's hope these guys aren't even wearing underwear, and when they crash, they land on their family jewels. Stupid is as stupid does, and they. are. stupid. !
Hi chickie... it has been a crazy summer! I'm so sorry that our trip to Branson/OK did not work out... my poor boy is pretty sad that he doesn't have anything really interesting to tell about when school is back in session, too. *sigh* The economy is just the pits... hubby is covered up with houses that he needs to fix and sell, and we are biding our time. It will work out... we WILL meet for realz. I just know it! {{{hugs}}}

They just made it illegal to text and drive here in TX...not that it stops any of these douchecanoes on wheels. I was even in the car with my hubby doing that once! (He got the headsmack of a lifetime for it.) LOL One of my apt. neighbors drives a car with a bumper sticker on it that reads "Are you making an appointment with St. Peter on that cell phone?" I could not agree more!!

CRAZY right?! I just seen one on a street bike the other day texting!! Crazy people!

Amy said...

oh my! I have a hard time answering my phone while driving. I can't even imagine trying to text and drive. Much less texting and driving a MOTORCYCLE!!!! And people wonder why car accidents kill so many people each year.... ugh!

That is insanity. Our law was passed 1st of July for no texting and driving. Thank goodness.

OMG that is sooo frightening

Kmama said...

Wow. I can't imagine. Like Mimi said, we have a new law in michigan. They say that you are 24% more likely to get in an accident texting while driving...and that's almost equivalent to drunk driving!!

I guess the idiot with the video didn't realize that he was really doing the same thing!

Tiffany said...

Dumb dumb people.

Get the heck out of the city right this instant Rachel. You have to be kidding me. ARE THEY CRAZY!

Emily said...

Holy Smokes!!! That guy is wac!

What an IDIOT! Seriously!
A few weeks ago, I saw a guy on a motorcycle with a cigarette in one hand and a drink in the other. And no helmet, of course!

Beth Zimmerman said...

That is NUTS and incredibly scary! I had WORDS with my 20yo yesterday about texting and driving! He's an excellent driver but he gets too comfortable and thinks he can do it all if he's *careful!*
