So I'm driving to work this morning, and was immediately amused... This is not exactly groundbreaking, as I amuse rather easily. But, nonetheless, I wanted to share with you.
I'm driving along, and following a guy in a big, overdone pickup. This has the suspension, the big wheels, the chrome trim. This is a NICE pickup. Looks like it'd be good for some offroading. But what caught my attention, was not the pickup. It was not even the driver. No, what caught my attention is the WAY he was driving. He was moving to avoid every dip, bump, and obstruction in the road. Now, his vehicle is most able to deal with all that. His vehicle is MADE to go over bumps and stuff. But, he was careful to create the smoothest, albeit swervy, ride possible.
Why? What's the point? Why soup up your vehicle for offroading, and never do it?
These are the same kind of people who buy things, but never take them out of the box, because they're afraid they'll damage them. What is the point of having something if you can't get use or enjoyment out of it?
