When in a FS post it's stated: "don't like a price, make an offer". So you do, a decent one at that, and they say they're not gonna budge on the price because they think it's a good price. Cool. Then why in the drymount do you even give the option to make an offer? Asshole move.

I have always thought that you should receive a ticket if you do that. If that were to become a law I think it could really help ease traffic issues in many busy cities. Glad to hear I am not alone with this logic.

It's funny you mention this. I only recently started seeing these signs pop up at major intersections here, like a month ago. :pint:

I'm the guy who gets blocked, pulls up as close as I can, lays on the horn, and gives em a big thumbs up and a fudge eating grin. Nothing pisses off morons faster than sarcasm. The lowest form of humor is still well beyond the grasp of most American drivers.

Roundabouts are lost on Texans.

I had one at my last office car park entry location where most locals would go the reverse way around it, as a 'shortcut' to get to the 9 o'clock position exit, seriously.

More than once I had to give way to someone coming around the wrong way as I tried to exit roundabout... :hanging:

There are some small roundabouts here around 15th street (and scattered around in central Austin) at some of the residential intersections. They seem kinda out of place, but also they're super idiot proof. Like you can't drymount these ones up. XD

Careful with the phrase idiot proof. That's usually taken as a challenge.

Youtube videos of reviews, unboxings or what not where the presenter always opens with an over-enthusiastic "Hey, what is up guys!, this is user 1234 and this is my exclusive video for...."

It's not interactive, the generic one-way greeting is meaningless and explaining what YouTube user id, video title and detail summary already provide, make it totally redundant.
