I'm at a fast food place in Fairview going through the drive thru when I see an undercover car with the lights flashing, he's out of the car searching some guy's car, the problem is his back end is in the way of the drive thru. I could tell I wasn't going to be able to get through without hitting him so I looked at him and gestured and asked him if he could please move his car a couple feet forward. He just looked at me as if to say "how dare you even look me in the eyes, you're lucky I don't beat you up and arrest you" and said nothing. Looked me right in the face and refused to even acknowledge me, just gave me the death stare, even held it for a good 8 seconds. I didn't want to press the issue because I could tell he was an asshole and didn't feel like spending the night in a cold cell.
So I went for it, my only option at this point being that I had two cars behind and nowhere else to turn, and sure enough, I scratched my car on the curb, even though I barely made it past his car without hitting it. I had 3 inches max. I get out of the car to look at the damage, and say to him "It would have been really nice if you could have moved your car a couple of feet." This fucking smug little puke faced prick, who had just been starting at me the whole time while I'm assessing the damages, trying to intimidate me, looking at me like "I DARE you to say something to me" has the nerve to say to me, in a loud, aggressive tone "Don't fuckin look at me, why don't you learn how to fuckin drive, the SUV in front of you made it just fine and he's bigger than you." Then he told me to get in my car and cursed at me some more.
First off, genius, it's not about size. Different cars have different dimensions. That SUV was sitting really high, my car sits really low and has a body kit, the side skirt of which is now damaged and hanging off because you decided to park in the middle of a fucking drive thru. Secondly, where the fuck do you get off talking to me like that? I'd bet my life you wouldn't act so tough without that fucking badge. Telling me to learn how to drive? I KNEW I WASN'T GOING TO MAKE IT, THAT'S WHY I ASKED YOU TO MOVE YOUR FUCKING CAR YOU FUCKING PIG COCKSUCKER. If I had hit your car I'd probably be sitting in jail right now. Why don't YOU learn how to fucking PARK? Oh that's right you never get tickets so why would you bother.
I'm not going to take this. I called the fast food place, they got the whole thing on tape, I had a witness in the car with me who can verify that I came extremely close to hitting your car but still didn't have enough room to get through. I got the license plate number of the silver Jetta you were driving and I've contacted the police, all that's left to do now is call a lawyer. I will have these damages paid for, which I estimate will run me over $500 with labour because the side skirt will need to be replaced. Money that I don't feel I should have to spend because you were too busy busting some guy for weed at a fast food drive thru to move your fucking car a foot forward, out of the way of taxpayers who are just trying to get their fucking ice cream and go about minding their own business on a Friday night.
I will have the police pay to replace my sideskirt if it's the last thing I do before I draw my last fucking breath. I don't care if it ends up costing me more in the long run. That's the reason they get away with this, because people say "it's not worth it." Well fuck that. I'm so sick of being pushed around and bullied by you fucking pansies who wouldn't even look at me sideways if you didn't have society's approval to be an aggressive bullying fucking dickhead. It should come out of that cop's pocket, but now I'm just dreaming. That's the real stinger here, even if I DO somehow prove in court that the cop caused me to damage my car, which I'll admit is unlikely, any settlement I got would come out of our tax dollars.
Again, fuck you with a rusty toolbox sideways, and fuck every cop who thinks it's okay to be rude, aggressive, confrontational and indifferent to the public whose taxes (the highest in the country) pay for your salary and for all your resources. There is no need to treat citizens like trash, bad police-community relations hurt everyone. —Go Straight to Hell You Limp Dick Piece of Shit
