|A very angry man has a long battle while|
stuck in snow, and we respond by laughing at him. n
In that spirit, I bring you a video from last winter of a guy who is perhaps not the best person to get his SUV out of a snowbank.
He also proves, as you'll see in the video at the bottom of this post, that getting angry just makes the job less effective.
He does everything wrong. He's got lousy tires, but it's too late to fix that here. He guns the engine rather than trying to gradually ease himself out of the ice.
There's a patch of bare pavement behind the vehicle that he can back up onto to give him a good start, but, nope.
And worse, he spins and spins and spins his tires, probably ruining the SUV in the long term, and in the short term, creating smooth, slick ice under the tires which means he'll never get out. Maybe.
The video, all seven and a half glorious minutes of it, were shot by a gleeful man filming from an upper floor apartment window.
The guy who shot the video said several passersby tried to offer help to the guy, but the Angry Man cursed them out. And notice an itty bitty Toyota Prius drove through all the bad slush and seemed to have no problem with it.
One commenter on the YouTube video had this perfect bit of wisdom about the situation, that I wish I had thought of:
"I heard that if you throw enough curse words at the snow and slam your car doors hard enough, it scares the snow and causes it to melt faster. Who can blame him for knowing that information ahead of time?"
I know we shouldn't laugh at angry people, but what the hell:
