At the Summernats a couple of years a guy had a radically chop-topped EK Holden ute and some idiot cut loose with a super soaker water pistol and sprayed his windscreen causing him to crash into the car in front. Not happy Jan. Another similar incident I heard of was jealous ar$eholes doing similar things but with brake fluid instead of water, I wouldn't like to be in their shoes if they were caught.
On a personal level, I used to have a pretty decent XY GT replicar, spent heaps of folding stuff on it and the thing that used to annoy me was when people used to close the door using the door handle. This is because as I'm sure you all know the XYs have door handles that stick out (not flush mount like XA onwards) and pressing on them causes dents in the door where the handles bolt on. The other thing is when someone closes the bonnet and leans on it to click it closed. This is an absolute no no, especially on the later model cars that are made from thinner gauge metal.
Another pet hate is the windscreen washer guys at the traffic lights, apart from the fact that more often than not the windscreen looks grubbier after they've "cleaned" it they lean all over your car and can scratch it with their belt buckle or studs from their jeans.
I also hate the way that birds (feathered ones!) are disrespectful to cars. They are always pooping on them. I have a good mind to go and lay a terd in their nests and see how they like that...
Speaking of such things, an aquaintance of mine says he once jumped up on the bonnet of an XY GT and snapped one off Mr Whippy style on top of the shaker. I believe him too, he is just the sort of fruitcake to do such a thing.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
