  • Immature teenagers who don't take driving seriously! GRRR!!!

    Tonight I was in drive-thru at a fast food joint which shall remain nameless. In front of me were some 16 year olds in a fairly new Mustang. None of them were wearing seatbelts, one girl was sitting on the guy's lap who was sitting in the front seat, and they were in and out running to their other friend's car, playing musical cars, only without the music. (It's also illegal to drive with more than one passenger for people who are on a level one licence, which these kids would have been.)

    One girl was getting out of the mustang while the driver decided to take off with her still half in the car and she fell out onto the pavement. Then the guy in the mustang was making his car roll back (it was a standard) towards my car to **** me off. I was starting to get a little annoyed with their immaturity so I told them to get back in their car. So they all got out of their car and started swearing at me and yelling at me.

    I decided to ignore them, and they pulled forward. After I got out of drive-thru, the driver swung his car around and stopped perpendicular in front of my car. I stop my car so I don't hit his car, they driver and the guy in his front seat get out and approach my car and start swearing at me again asking me "what (my) fking problem was." I told them that I was annoyed with their immature approach to driving and that they should take driving more seriously.

    The kid continues to yell at me about how they're in a parking lot so "nothing's going to happen." I told him that for all I know they could act that way on the road and that they're in the category of people who die most in car accidents. Then he goes on to tell me "we're 16, we're only teenagers. This is how teenagers are supposed to act. Did you not act like this when you were 16?" I never did. I didn't get my first speeding ticket until I was 17, almost 18, and I still followed the other laws and I ALWAYS wear my seatbelt. The kid didn't shut up and get back in his car until I whipped out my handy-dandy cell phone and showed him the "police after hours" number on it and that I was going to call the police and inform them that I was being harassed by a group of teenagers in a parking lot who were trying to hit my car with theirs. (I never did call the police though. How come there's never a police officer in drive-thru when you need one?)

        Are you suggesting that I'm stupid?

          Maybe he was saying the hooligans in the mustang were stupid, why so quick to go on the defensive?

            I was working at a fast food place a couple years ago. I was taking orders for the drunk crowd at 2:15am. This one car was full of people who were blitzed out of their mind thought it was a good idea to drive through going backwards. Literally in reverse. Well they ended up hitting the side of the building. Imagine that. I have stories to tell all day from working night shift drive thru.

              There is not a cop in the drive up window, because you were eating at McDrugs. Don't you remember the boycott on that issue.

                    SpeeD, you know I love bustin your chops (nothing personal honey),,so here it comes.

                    This is what happens when kids only GET A "STERN TALKING TO", INSTEAD OF HAVING THEIR COLLECTIVE ASSES HANDED TO THEM ON A PLATTER when they do stupid sheit.

                    Had to do it!

                      I saw an RCMP cruiser go through the same drive-thru two days earlier.

                        You wont get through to little punks like that the way you were talking to them so nicely while they swore at you. Put a little base in your voice and raise it and they would shut up. lol

                          I did. It still didn't work. They seemed to think that I too was a high school student from their rivalry school. They got back into their car when I showed them the "Police After Hrs" number on my phone and told them that I was going to call them in.

                            Teenage drivers feel that for some stupid reason they are special and can drive as fast as they want too,and even practice doing it down back roads not built for high speeds!

                              Yes, they mentioned something like that. Being that they're young and just having fun...

                              Is there anything I can do as a concerned citizen to advocate against teenagers driving like morons and killing themselves/other people? It's been a real problem here this year and I'm starting to get annoyed with it. I myself had to put my car into the shoulder in the summer because some teenagers in a Nissan Skyliner were coming in off the highway at speeds between 160-180 kph and coming up fast behind me (and not making any indication of passing) while I was driving the speed limit of 90 kph.

                              For some reason teenagers feel that they must race me in their little piece of crap at every red light and they can't seem to realize that I'm not trying to race them and that they're not beating me. (between $750-800 in speeding tickets, I know who's car goes faster. )

                              I'll never forget the kid who raced an unmarked police car at a red light. The kid looked pretty young so he much have just got his licence and didn't know how to recognize an unmarked police car. (My dad taught me how to at the young age of 8.) Needless to say though, the kid lost badly.

                              They are such annoying drivers. My dad says I wasn't much better when I was their age, but I don't recall driving dangerously the way they do. I know I sped and raced people at the red lights for 1/2 a block and then slowed it back down.
