Feeling like a big, fat jerk (a confession)

On my way home today I had to cross puddle of water in the road that appeared to be about 2.5" deep. I was boxed in by a montero sport on the left, a tailgater behind me, and a curb on the right, so I decided to ford this puny puddle at about 25 mph. Once I hit it and water completely covered my FJ (roof included) I glanced over to see an open window on the montero sport; I think I got the passenger. I know that there wasn't much else I could do in that situation, but I still feel like a jackass.

Not much of a confession but I feel really bad.

We always go for puddles. We just do. Sorry if anyone is standing there, or someone has an open window. I guess that makes us bigger, fatter jerks - we must have these puddles.......

I do tend to aim for them, but this time was an exception. Granted, I did enjoy it until I saw the passenger ducking for cover.

Hell yeah I had fun! And they'll probably think twice about boxing someone in like that next time.

Maybe I should have tossed them a bar of soap.

Mine was down too, that's why I looked over. No water in my truck, though

Re: Feeling like a big, fat jerk (a confession)

One day , a new apprentice drove our company truck.
The Winter Streets of Manhattan full of slush water.

A wedding party was in front of the St Regis Hotel.
He aimed the truck at this deep lake of curb slush and water.
A tidal wave ..a tsunami of street slush and water totally drenched them...from head to toe....
It all happened in slow motion......the horror..............

I'd hate to be that person, for sure. But it's hard not to laugh at the images in my head. It just is!
I'm a pig.
