What were you thinking!?

Because I want to get my thoughts out and can't seem to structure it fast enough before class begins, here's a really quick blog about stupid people and how much they make me feel that the human race is doomed for extinction:

  1. This morning I was on my way to work when I saw that there was an accident at an intersection of Rancho California road (if you're heading East, its the traffic light just before you hit Butterfield Stage Rd. - I can't remember the name of it unfortunately). The cause of the accident was clear as day and there was no doubt in my mind who was at fault and why. Here's what I know happened: a Foster Farms delivery truck was making a right turn at the intersection, probably making a delivery to the grocery store that was there adjacent to the intersection on the South-Eastern corner. Well, some idiot in a champaigne-colored Suburban apparently didn't remember what you shouldn't do when making a right-turn right behind a big-rig (and a warning for this is nearly always posted at the rear of a big-rig) - the truck will make wide turns, so don't try to come up next to it on the right so that you can make a right-turn also. This idiot in a suburban tried to squeeze between the curb and the truck and made an ultimate fail which looked - and I kid you not - almost exactly like the warning label on the back of the truck. What an idiot!

  2. While I was at work, my coworker was telling my boss and the rest of the office about a news article in which a woman was walking out on the train tracks and got hit by a train. Now, if the comments on the article are true, it is sad to hear that she suffered the same fate as her father in dying on the tracks trying to remember her deceased padre. However, though ironic, we all agreed in the office that it was a very idiotic thing to have done. Now, I'm not saying she deserved it, but seriously, how stupid do you have to be to go onto the train tracks when there's a train coming?

These are only 2 out of millions of idiots that cohabitate this tiny planet we call Earth, and I can assure you I see things like this almost every day. So the question is: why?! Urgh, I'm off my soapbox now...
