everytime i drive on the motorway an audi is up my arse flashing me to move over. on crimewatch just now an audi driver ploughed into some pedestrians in a town centre.

what it is about an audi that makes people drive like morons?

Just got back from Tesco and the wanker who screamed into the carpark scattering trolleys and children right and left and then screeched into a disabled space (sans blue badge, natch) was driving an Audi 4X4! Do I win?

I have just been tailgated in my Audi , in a 30 zone by a fucking lifeline ambulance. I'm raging !!!!

I am VW polo driver and yes I am slow and rubbish!

KenDoddsDadsDog Chile Mon 18-Feb-13 20:12:34

I love meeting people who have raced like mad at lights. It makes me feel so smug

KatoPotato Mon 18-Feb-13 10:30:01

Well, the arsehole who riled me up today was driving a...

Black Fiat Punto 08

Tearing down the motorway, changing lanes to undertake the whole way. I was willing him to be stopped but nay.

I did finally meet him at the lights at the end of the junction exit, which I do enjoy cruising to an oh so casual stop after driving impeccably!

On Saturday I drove up to the village to buy a newspaper. There was a car parked half on an ordinary space and half taking up part of the disabled space beside it, even though there was plenty of room in the normal space if she'd just straightened up properly. It was a 4x4.

On Sunday I was driving down to visit my mum's and was stopped on the main road with my indicator flashing to turn left. A car came roaring up behind me and stopped at the last minute. I turned the corner very slowly because my mother's house is just the third house in and I wanted to give the ignorant knob in the car behind plenty of warning that I was going to be stopping again. He glued his car to my boot and then roared out past me giving me an indignant glare. He was driving a BMW.

I thought of this thread on both occasions smile.

whatkindoffool that's progress of sorts!

Hmm, me thinks judging a person by what car they drive is just slightly ridiculous and synical!

But then people often buy cars, especially brands considered to be 'prestige' brands in order to project a certain image. Some people who are attracted to these cars seem to see it as evidence that they are 'better' 'more worthy' than others.

I don't think we are immune from this, my 17 year old Corrolla says 'I am prematurely middle aged and a bit short on money' both of which are true.

Was a Nissan Qube for me. Scary little square on wheels.

KatoPotato Sun 17-Feb-13 21:52:13

I think we need a definitive 'the arsehole who riled me up today was driving a...' thread and we can correlate the true responses.

For me, today it was a Ford S-Max who hurtled out in front of me at a roundabout then undertook me later on the M80.

KenDoddsDadsDog Chile Sun 17-Feb-13 21:45:06

I bet you're in demand at parties.

Somebloke Sun 17-Feb-13 21:34:18

I've found a superb way to irritate Audi drivers. All you need to do is drive at 30 mph in built up areas, slow down slightly when you're near primary schools, and stop at red lights.

Before long you'll have a red-faced middle aged man flashing his lights and gurning at you in the rear view mirror. It's hilarious.

This thread is harsh, I now drive an Audi so am a twat and use to drive a fiat 500 so therefore used it as a personality!

WhatKindofFool Sun 17-Feb-13 19:43:30

compos I see that I have gone from a mundane twat to car as a substitute personality twat. I suppose that makes perfect sense grin

<parps>

Just the leather on my handbag squeaking, I do apologise!

RedToothBrush Bosnia-Herzegovina Sun 17-Feb-13 18:00:25

People who say they don't fart on planes are liars wink

Cortana Sun 17-Feb-13 16:36:12

Well people who don't like handbags are mostly the type of people who eat crisps loudly in the theatre and fart on planes. grin

RedToothBrush Bosnia-Herzegovina Sun 17-Feb-13 16:19:59

I don't like handbags...

hattymattie Sun 17-Feb-13 16:19:54

Very pleased to see this thread as I always say to DH that the main speeders on the road are audi's.

germyrabbit Sun 17-Feb-13 16:18:11

ah but i said MOSTLY not ALL cortina

SomethingOnce Sun 17-Feb-13 16:15:50

It's probable that a 'status' brand of car will disproportionately attract status-driven narcissistic types, whose character flaws manifest in their driving.

Maybe.

Cortana Sun 17-Feb-13 13:25:59

To be fair thought RedTooth, if you happened to have a certain brand of handbag, and I said all people who have said handbags are rude, smell like badgers and are known to push in queues at the supermarket, would you not be a bit miffed?

RedToothBrush Bosnia-Herzegovina Sun 17-Feb-13 12:59:30

I think the Audi and BMW driver do protest too much...

But...but...but I drive a BMW, toffee lolly, and I am lovely and modest. sad
