Driving Jagoffs

Pittsburghers And Their “Blue Book”

There is something about people from Pittsburgh and their love of referring to the Blue Book when it comes to their used car, “Hey, just picked up that baby last week for under 10 grand!  There ain’t a scratch on it.  Do you know what the Blue Book value is on THAT thing?  I basically stole this baby.”

So, one of our Twitter followers sends us this message:

Lady carries a $1000 collision deductible insurance on a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue that has 166,000+ miles. I’m either going to laugh or cry. Unreal.  She’s lucky if it’s worth $800!”

This goes right along with those “hood dudes” that have an ’81 Chrysler K- car with bumpers hanging off, one of the doors that’s a different color than the rest of the car, a sideview mirror hanging on with duct tape, red translucent tape over the left tail light, the trunk key-hole missing and a $4,545 stereo system that bounces the chest of anyone within 200 yards of the vehicle.

Hey lady, instead of trading in your old gold necklaces for cash, hang them from the review mirror, maybe 20 or 30 of them.  THEN, tape 35-cents to the inside of the driver’s side door panel.  ONLY THEN will your car have SOME value when it’s found in a heap over a hill.  And then your insurance payoff, plus the Blue Book value of your heap of crap, can get ya two Mocha-snob-I-Like-coffee-But-only-when-its-filled-with-cocoa-cinnamon-carmel-and-a -whole-lotta-crapalotta Starbucks drinks, Ya Jagoff!

Thanks to Twitter follower @JohnnyBCool for being our Honorary Jagoff Catcher on this post!!  Thanks for the submission.
