Slow motion

Here's one, not from me but it was told so well Its worth telling again.

I was going to the new Jurys hotel on Parnell st with an Indian passenger. Traffic was slow but it was nice and sunny. We were approaching the junction with Hill st.
A guy was coming the opposite way in a BMW converteble with the roof down. He had a big Rolex watch on his wrist and he was talking on the mobile phone.

Now he had a red light against him and a guy coming down Hill st was joining the traffic..
The beamer went through the lights and tried to cut off the other driver. The Hill st guy blew his horn, which aggitated the asshole beamer driver. He hung up his phone, got out of the car and attempted to give the other driver loads of verbal and physical abuse.

My friend was watching as he was facing the incedent .

A young chancer who just happened to be passing took a look into the beamer. Keys? Ok couldn't get it around too tight..Good Jacket and laptop...Too much in one go..

My friend started to blow his horn to which Mr beamer gives him the fingers.!
The chancer had made his choice then, OK!
Laptop it is..

Than all the cars behind the BMW start to blow their horns. Mr Beamer turns in a total rage to express his displeasure only to see his laptop heading down the lane at the side of the post office.
The Indian passenger in my friends taxi got out he has been laughing so much he couldn't breath.
"My God that was so funny, you wouldn't see that in the movies"

The lights changed and everyone else drove away.

It happened in a few seconds but it seemed like 10 minutes .

Its nice that once in a while these assholes get their cumeuppence.
I let people cut in and out. No problem. Traffic is like the weather, you can do nothing about it .
Unless you drive a humvee in Iraq
