Default What'* with these little kiddy ricers?

So there I was Saturday driving down the interstate heading for Kenosha and was in south Milwaukee. My wife next to me, she opens the window to have a smoke, ya, I know, I dont like it but it'* better then listening to her whine about it. Got the tunes on, not to loud. What'* that sound, I look around, can't see anything. Sounds like a motorcycle coming up real fast. I look out at the road, it had snowed the other day so the road is really wet. I keep looking around, it'* really loud! It'* to my right, I expect this car to FLY past. Nope, this stupid black ricer passes me about 3 MPH faster then I'm going. My wife looks at the car and starts laughing. She then looks at me and rolls her eyes Me, I'm just confused , then start lauging He finally moved over and found 3rd gear. Ya, what ever.

So yesterday I'm driving down the road when this red ricer tears past me WOW, where did he come from? So I give it a little shot and pass him. Road starts to curve about so I back down to a better speed. He trys again. No go. He finally got next to me when I had to make a right turn. I looked over, laughed and said your not worth the gas or risk. Damn kids. Can't they see I'm just some old dude in a 4 door sedan? What challange could I possibly be?

Idk you are driving a car with a HUGE supercharged banner on the windshield and HUGE fake hood scoops on the hood so I can see them trying to mess with you.

You know, just for show, it'* not like I'm really fast. Besides, both these guys came up from behind. Oh, and the fake hood scoops will soon be no more, the hood will be real shortly.

Like I said, there not worth the gas to turn my crank. Not to mention I'm not stupid, I'm not racing on a wet bendign road with other cars around. Not worth the risk. Nothing to prove here.

I actually got more people to try to race me in my completely stock Grand Marquis. Strange, considering this is the car that has the flowmaster w/ quad tips, tinted windows, and looks WAY sportier than the Grand Marquis ever did lol. Friends always ask why I don't try to race people, I just tell them that it'* not worth it with gas prices, citations, my life or other people'* lives.

Only time I might 'race' is when somebody won't get off my *** at night and I'm tired of being blinded. Typically gets the lights out of the mirror real quick, but I've never 'staged' somebody. I have made some quick merges infront of ricers from a red light in a 2>1 lane situation, but that'* just because the stereotypical ricer driver is too much of an ******* to let you over, and I can do it without really digging into the throttle and wasting gas.
