My school decides to have school, waits until everyone is there, then closes it because 'it's too dangerous to drive' and makes everyone drive home in the 'too dangerous' weather.

what about bus people? you are talking about a highschool right
it would be more inconvenient to the school to call buses back.

My elementary school back in the day did a move that really takes the cake. There was a huge winter storm coming so they call the busses early but since the bus company does other things during the day only one bus at a time could come and take people home so they called one bus load down then half an hour later called another and by this time it was starting to get real bad out. But in the end our early dismissal ended up keeping everyone for the most part until 4:30 when school normally got out a 3:15. This was a country school so no one walked to and from school.

Buses were cancelled that day.

They made all the kids either drive home or have their parents drive up and get them in the middle of a wet snowstorm.

Happy people. All they do is make me feel more sad.
The way people always seem to question what doctors say. I'd like to see their medical school degree.
"Paper or plastic?" Of course I want paper, does anybody ever ask for plastic?
Ghettomobiles. It always bugs me to see a $500 car with $6000 worth of ugly accessories on it.
Wimpy cars with racing stripes. Do you really think that Ford Escort could beat anything in a race?
Garbage trucks that go by your house at 5AM, driving like a drunk hobo on speed. Floor it, brake, floor it, brake. Why can't they learn to drive the garbage trucks like every other human?
When you hear the ice cream truck for an hour, and it goes down every street except the one you live on.
The new $5 bill that looks like a kindergarden student designed it. Seriously? A purple 5?
Colorado's state flag. Oooh how creative, the letter 'C.' Colorado is one of the prettiest states in the country, and that is all they can come up with?!

Yeah me too. its very hard for people to cheer me up. Unless the guys bring me out for a game of pool and a beer, thats one of the few things that relax me. Being around happy people when im not one of em pisses me off

Especially on Honda Civics! dont know what it is but it seems every Honda Civic in my town all has Cherry bomb exhaust, aftermarket lights, and a retarded spoiler. there nice cars but not when EVERYONE you know does the exact same thing with them! it doesnt make you look cool, you look like your on a cheap budget with no originallity.
This being said, accessories and mods can look very nice on otherwise crappy cars if you know what your doing, you know what to put your money in, and balence it just right. No big spoilers.

Yeah, if you gave me any car id only do a few things for visual.
-nice rims, but not too overboard
-window tint
-depending on the car and its color, headlight covers,
-MAYBE a nice scoop but probably not unless on some cars.

the rest id toss into the seating, sound system, and a LOT into performance.

but then again, a lot of cars are just best left stock. like my dads Ford Taurus. I bought it and fixed/ modded it and gave it to him as a birthday present. 100% stock (visually) exept for a good repaint and window tint. Re-did the interior so its very comfortable and luxurious, and a quality CD player and small sub in the back.
except for under the hood, there you can go wild no matter what kind of car it is. some vehicles just look weird all pimped out visually.

Call me picky, but thats how i see it

Oh, and another thing that grind my gears-- people that drive way too slow. I'm not an advocate of speeding dangerously, but people that drive 70km/h in a 90km/h? everyone in Canada pretty much drives 100 in a 90, so WHY are you doing 70 in your lifted and bad-ass Jeep?? in my opinion its more of a damn hazard than going too fast. if your too scared to go the speed limit, dont drive on a highway. if its crappy weather or somethings wrong with your car then thats cool, but not in the middle of summer on a sunny day on a perfectly straight road....

I hate driving on the road and seeing ricers... how can anyone make their car so freakin ugly. I don't understand. Those that drive a piece of s*** like this should be back handed

It's mostly Civics because that's what a lot of people have. They're cheap and have a big aftermarket, but a lot of people take their cars in the wrong direction modification wise.

Good Honda


Bad Honda

That second Honda is how I make my cars on NFS. I do try, however, to make them look good! I hate it when someone insists that they're funny.
