Prius Driver Has a Meltdown...

But seriously... If she or anyone walks over to my car cursing in front of my kids... It's ON! :mad:

Sounds like the truck is a desiel, if so I would have got my smoke screen on and really set her off. I was always told its harder on desiels to start them then to just keep them idling. But they did show alot more restraint then my wife and I would have if we were in the same situation

If she wasn't such an ignorant bitch she'd realize that her prius will do just as much damage as the diesel truck will in a lifetime.

She was a classless bitch but I too have a pain with idling vehicles, if it's someplace I'm sorta stuck at. Li'l bit o' extra wear and tear on the diesel to have to restart it? Stop, you're breaking my heart.

The lady was, indeed, an obnoxious ass but she had a point. Turn the bleeping noise maker off people, when it makes sense to do so. It's not like she's asking them to start it, run it for 2 minutes, then shut it off, and repeat that about 50 times (or until the battery dies).

It seemed like the guy's daughter was in the car sleeping, so they kept the car running to leave the Ac on. Nothing wrong with that in my book.

Not sure what "It's ON!" means in your books, but I'd say this guy handled the whole thing marvelously. If an idiot approaches you, you keep calm and don't get down on their level. Now that's a great lesson for the kids! :thumbup:

And his wife, who did get back in the other woman's face, completely ignored him when he tried to settle her down!

What, the kid is going to wake up and start crying if the AC is off for a few minutes? And the kid's presumed need for the right ingredients to continue in a blissful slumber gives them the right to add noise and exhaust fumes into the scene? What we don't know from the vid, is did the lady ask them to turn it off more politely earlier? If they reacted in a way she thought rude to that, it would moderate my feelings about her obnoxious rant, which was pretty hard to take, I'll readily agree.

I couldn't tell exactly why those people were congregated in the parking lot, but it appeared that they needed to wait there for something. I've gone to a bunch of the barter fairs up in N. Central WA state, in October, near Canada so it gets cold at night. I can't tell you how many times I was just about to drift off into slumber when some nimrod starts his rig and runs it for 30 minutes to an hour, or tries to before I get in their face and read them the riot act. There we are, way up in the hills, away from the sounds of the city, tranquil peace and quiet but no, these people don't have a good enough sleeping bag or their feet are like, cold, man, and they idle their bleeping rig. Imagine you're asleep in bed and someone brings a car into the hallway outside your door and starts it up. That's about what it sounds like. The noise of the idle dominates.

And if the Prius lady did indeed have a child whose breathing was made more difficult by being downwind of exhaust, her child can damn well suffer so the other child can have air-conditioned sleep?

what could be simpler than to move your car..??!? :rolleyes:

rooster1986 06-13-2012 02:57 PM

^ My car sits low enough that most full sized trucks exhausts are window level. You know what I do.... I stay a little back or ahead. Doesnt look like it was a overly packed parking lot so what makes her so special? Just get over self, your not jesus cause you drive a prius.

Yup. She could easily move her environmentally damaging Prius somewhere else rather than making a scene. :rolleyes:

I leave my diesel run when I go into a store just so it's nice and cool when I get back in. I do the opposite in the winter. :p

I've owned 3 Hybrids and my parents have had three Prii. Drive a diesel now. If I had a bitch come up to me and talk to me like that about the X5, I would definelty go off on her

No sympathy for lowlifes like that. She can take her prius and shove it up her ass and this is coming from a previous Toyota Hybrid owner

People in this country need to grow up ASAP and stop being children in adult's bodies. No matter how much you yell/bawl and beat your feet on the ground you do NOT have*

- a right to clean air
- a right to silence when you desire it
- a right to smell-free environment
- a right germ-free environment
- a right to pollen-free environment
- a right to children-free environment
- a right to music-free environment
- a right to food-smell-free environment
- a right to tatoo-free and piercing-free environment
- and so on.

What you DO have a right to do is to f*ck off and go where it suits you until you grow up and learn to live and let live.


That's all.

I watched it again and it didn't look like some big, shopping mall parking lot. Perhaps the lady had an appt. she was early for and wanted to hang in the car with her kid. Then the rig drove up. It idles for a minute, she starts to notice, wondering when they're going to shut it off. They don't. Pretty soon she starts to fume. I mean we live with the GDed roar of engines often enough. When you get into a zone where you sort of expect people will shut the engine off after they arrive it could be annoying to have some diesel idle going non stop.

It's a bit weird for people to assert that their li'l girl just cannot get her nap, ya'all, w/o a 200hp/300ft.lb. engine idling away to run the AC. Holy $h!t batperson, we've turned into a nation of wussies.

The woman was over the top a PITA, no question. Under the right circumstances, I could see myself questioning the gentleman's conduct, and instructing him to shut the damn thing off. Ain't no truck stop here, bubba.
