Dave!I live on a rural road with no sidewalks. It's not very pedestrian-friendly, but its home.

Tonight as I was heading home from work, a jogger was running towards me on my side of the road. Since there was a car coming in the other direction, I had two options... 1) Run over the jogger. 2) Slow down until the other car passed and I had room to get around the jogger.

Foolishly, I chose option two.

Foolishly, because as I slowed down the jogger ran by and spit on my car.

DAVETOON: Lil' Dave Drives Angry

Clearly, I am doing this angry driver thing all wrong.

    How DARE you exist! sheeesh…

  2. Art says:

    Wow thats great! Since people are creatures of habit perhaps they will be jogging on that particular unsidewalked road at the same time so you can get your revenge by crushing them with your car. You can laugh maniacally as you thump over them forward and backward, again and again. Stupid Buddhism. You never get to have any fun.

    I got farted on in a Starbucks once. You ARE doing it wrong. 😉

  4. kilax says:

    That is really bizarre. Do you think it was an accident or on purpose?

    The use of the word “jogger” is discussed a lot in the running community. I am curious about your opinion – are you using the term “jogger” because of their speed, or because that is what you call people who run?

    There is a huge debate about how joggers are slower than runners. In my mind, all who run are runners. But some people use the term joggers (and some get offended by it – not me! Just curious!).

      I HOPE it was an accident. I HOPE he was focussing on his running and didn’t even realize it.

      As for “runner” vs. “jogger”… I dunno. He wasn’t running a race, he was just jogging on the side of the road. I always think as “running” as a sporting event or being chased or something… and “jogging” as a personal task or leisurely training thing. I don’t know that it’s necessarily the “speed” that distinguishes the two in my head. Seems a funny thing to get offended by though? I mean, I don’t get offended if somebody calls one of my illustrations a “drawing” (or whatever)! Interesting! 🙂

    wow. REALLY uncalled for!

    damn waterhead drop-outs with no manners!!!!

    Joggers are evil and must be destroyed.

  8. claire says:

    Spitting on your car?! That’s not cool at all. Maybe you should’ve spritzed him with your wiper fluid.

    The roads where I live sound just like yours. A lot of people do run/jog/walk/bike near me, but I don’t feel particularly safe doing that since there are no sidewalks and lots of blindspots on the road.

  9. shari says:

    Wow! Well, it must be that in the jogger’s culture of origin, spitting is a sacred gesture of thanks and appreciation. It HAS to be, because if a motorist were ever to be so considerate of me on my bike, I’d surely feel only gratitude and appreciation.

  10. James Bow says:

    So… this road that you and this jogger share… …does it have puddles?

  11. Steve in NH says:

    I agree with Art. Revenge is indicated here. I would be ready with a super-soaker filled with molasses next time. Sounds like yet another “fitter than thou” asshole.

  12. Sybil Law says:

    You didn’t make that asshole lick it back off?

  13. Sarah says:

    Wow. He spit on your car? People suck, dude.

  14. Poppy says:

    Was the runner listening to an iPod? It seems that people who are listening to iPods are oblivious to life around them, misperceive events because they are inside their heads and unable to take in all variables around them.

    Next time I hope you’ll stop your car, run after the runner, and spit on him.

  15. What. The. FUCK?!? Um, I mean, as a jogger/runner myself, I know I spit during a run because, you know, without water the whole saliva thing builds up in your mouth and it’s just nasty. So, you spit. I *might* have been an accident but still, have better aim. Not nice AT ALL! Sorry, hon. 🙁

  16. It looks like you drive a chrysler k-car. Perhaps they spat on you for driving a laughable relic?
