I was driving to the store tonight, turning left onto a reasonably
busy street. I found a small gap in traffic, and nailed the quattro 3/4
throttle to get into traffic without getting hit, or getting in anyone's
way. Well, it seems I offended the driver of an old early '80s Pontiac
LeMans when I passed him, because he turned into Autoworks where I was
going, and when I got out, he said, half joking, and half seriously, "you
better not think that you can beat this car with _THAT_ car."
As if it would be rude, and improper to beat a 'murican car with
one of 'em furrin cars! The nerve!
I said, with a chuckle "You wanna believe I can beat that car!"
