Sad but funny

Today i was driving down to Wal-mart on a 2 lane street. i was stopped at a redlight and next to me was a white ford suv (explorer, expedition, couldnt tell).

When it turns green im in the left lane, and hes in the right lane, and i semi-aggressively push the throttle and i was going at about 50 mph. then, all of a sudden i notice a car is ahead of me going really slow some distance away. so i start increasing speed even more. then i realize, the white suv is on my right and he floors it as he notices i am trying to change into his lane. Well as i saw him floor it, i floor it too and put it in DS mode. Sad part of the story is, we go parallel for about 5 seconds, before he finally begins to overtake me, and i am quickly approaching the car in front of me with no space to change lanes. finally i hit the brakes when i am like 10 feet from the car in front of me since i have no way of going ahead of him. this entire time we are going uphill too, and just as i gave up, the road becomes flat and i can see over the horizon. just as i reach the peak, i switch lanes and go behind the suv. at the same time. i see these flashing blue lights up ahead about 40 feet at the intersection! the white suv ahead of me by 30 feet gets pulled over. and i continue to wal-mart. i was laughing all the way til i found my parking space.

I usually go to Wal-mart because Target makes it so hard to exchange anything and you usually can get a better deal on the same exact thing. The Wal-marts we have are really nice around here. Kmarts prices are way too high for the crap they have.

I've never ever been to a Walmart before. I've been to Target and I think K-mart once. There arent many Walmarts around here and my family usually go to Costco instead. GO COSTCO!!!

not sure how you could get taken by a ford SUV. I own an expedition, and have owned explorers... no way my 328xi would be beat by one, especially if starting at 50mph! Off the line their low end gearing might make it a challenge, but starting at 50.... forgetaboutit

The last time I went to Walmart there was an attractive young lady greeting. No raving beauty, mind you, but attractive nonetheless.
