The dealers say the hummer gets 12mpg in highway driving. Puffy Combs says it has two tanks (32 gal main tank and 17 gal auxiliary) and it takes three to drive to San Francisco. You do the math; I did, and Puffy's not getting anywhere near the advertised 12mpg for highway driving.
I was standing in the rain, the crosswalk lights flashing, and the cars just kept whizzing by. Usually I force the issue by stepping into traffic, but the streets are extra-slick because it's the first rain of the season. It would have been truly death-defying, but I'm not up to it this morning.
See that curb? Red. What you can't see is the phalanx of legal parking spaces that are merely a few additional feet from the door of the PO. But hey! It's Entitlement! You can't expect them to (shudder) walk!
First he turned in front of me without stopping at the stop sign. Then he did 40 down San Vicente, where the speed limit is 35. Yes, I know everyone goes 40 and faster, but he's driving a school bus, for Pete's sake.
Did you know that GM is not legally required to state the EPA mileage figures for the hummer because it's over some weight limit? I learned this yesterday when I was looking to confirm my 8 city/12 highway figures.
All these parents are dropping off their precious darlings at the Archer School bus stop. You'd think healthy kids like these could hoof it the extra twenty feet if their parents pulled forward far enough to park at the side of the road instead of the middle, but I guess they're Entitled!
If I were forced to cross over the double yellow line around a blind curve by the presence of a bigass rolloff dumpster (supporting the serious uglification of this house) I think I'd slow down maybe just a little.
Lunch madness! No one could imagine parking anywhere else, so both these cars are waiting in the street for a space in the lot to open up. Meanwhile, the light cycles on and the rest of us wait and wait.
OMG this woman didn't have the sense the lord gave cole slaw. She wanted my parking space so she pulled up in front of me blocking the right lane. Then traffic pulled up next to me, blocking me from pulling out. Then I backed up a little so I could get by her and she backed into that space immediately, blocking my exit again!
OK I did exactly the same thing on the next level because the big arrow points the wrong way, and so does this guy. But I had to back up and so did the Jag behind me and it took everyone a long time to figure it out.
