i am seeing more and more of the h2. why??? why do you need a souped up military vehicle that eats up more gas in a month than my civic does in six. why? why do you need stupid suv in the streets of la? you should see the people that drive it. i wonder if they take their hummers to the mountains, or in rough terrain. do they go off roading with it? i doubt it: it would mess up their chrome details.

the more i see them, the more i get disgusted.

my mom said she wanted one. whatever. we are far from the age where she needs to drive us all to soccer practice. they already have an expedition. it eats up gas like a mutherphucka and it is way too big to take it out for everyday outings.

you may think i am just being bitter because i can't afford one. whatever. i would much rather have a good reliable car and use the extra cash for other things. like traveling. like starting a business. like funding my own projects than to write grants for it. like helping out a buddy or a family member who would need it.

i guess i am bitter because there is something about driving an expensive cars that make people drive like assholes, thinking that they own the road. they drive slower and brake for no apparent reason. they cut you off. they take two parking spaces. they have no qualms about running you over if you cross the street.

you don't believe me? drive thru brentwood and you tell me happens.
