Default Why are some diesel owners such douchebags?

Yesterday I was on my way home from work. I pulled up to a red light, and in front of me was a huge diesel truck. The car next to him had two teenage girls in it with their windows down. When the light turned green, he took off and dumped the black smoke all in their car.

As we drove, I stayed behind him. I guess he saw me, because he started hitting the gas pedal multiple times. When I wouldn't race him, he put on his wipers with fluid, so it would hit my car... Over and over. I stayed behind him though. After a few minutes, I went one lane over, because my turn was coming up. I guess he though I wanted to race, because he them proceeded to weave in and out of traffic with his monstrous truck. I pray a cop got him.

So what's with some of the diesel owners out here? I didn't realize how much of an *** some of them are.

Due to the price of diesel the cost of those trucks have went down, so now every tom dick and harry can afford them. What you witnessed is our version of a ricer. The people who get flamed on the diesel boards, because its cool to dump fuel out the exhaust when your truck makes 5-600 hp and 1000ft pounds of torque just by adding a 500 $ programmer.

it seems that there are more and more d-bag drivers anymore, regardless of what vehicle they're in. i always find at least one or two on my short 15 minute commute to and from work every day.

Yeah, that guy was an *** hole; but most of them aren't. I know douchebag Fbody owners too... But I don't classify Fbody owners as douchers.

There is a video of a couple guys stop a girl and ask if she smokes. She says yes I do and she disappears in a black cloud...

Don't blame the truck, blame the driver. My truck will dump a decent amount out until the turbo spools up.

Some owners of every type of vehicle are douche bags. There. I just solved the age old mystery.

Black smoking people is not funny unless said people are riding your ***. Then, they're fair game.

You should've just blown his doors off IMO. Honestly even if I'm in my 22-RE 2wd Toyota truck with all of about 120 hp, if some douche tries to run me at the light, you damn better well bet I'm doing a 4000rpm clutch dump and power shifting into 2nd at redline.

The secret to winning those stop light drags is to watch the lights on the opposite side. Once they turn red, you have approximately 1.5 to 2 seconds before your light turns green. I can usually outrun people who aren't paying attention or have some sort of weaksauce 4 cylinder or v6 under the hood.

Big truck, low I. Q.

Roasting them at a light does no good as they'll just ricer flyby. Best to avoid or just call the cops and report them if you really want to mess with them

There are a lot of "kids" that own diesels these days, and they just love to "roll coal".

But I'll admit, if I see some moron flying in and out of cars in traffic, I'll make it my mission to leave him a present through his window. But only when they deserve it.

In my area there are whole clans of diesel ricers. There are very few modded diesel owners around here who don't need to drive off a cliff.

They are about 5 times as stupid, obnoxious, and inconsiderate as the Honda Fast N Furious kids

People in general are douchebags no matter what they drive.

I was riding my bicycle and had some guy in a diesel pickup dump a bunch of black exhaust on me. That was real nice.

There is a guy in my town notorious for doing this. His family are all cops. His brother is the chief of police.

I was sitting in a buddy of mines car one night when the owner of the truck pulled up to my friend David's window and blew smoke in it.

David is a very laid back and chill kind of guy. Never starts drama or gives anyone ****. He thought David was alone I assumed. I got out of the car and walked over to his truck opened the door and threw a fountain drink in his face and smacked him. He pushed me out and drove off...

Well, you guys would have to know my friend David. Super nice guy that would not say **** if he had a mouthful of it. It got all over him and his brand new Lincoln LS. I mean it got on me a little too but I was more mad about the fact of this spoiled **** messing with a guy that would never do something like that.
