A dead roo and idiot driver lament on Ebden St

jdazzle 3 July 2013 73

I have to vent as I feel so cross – but who ever the idiot was who ran into a roo on Ebden Street last night, leapt out of the car and muttered ‘well the roo’s dead’ and then obviously leapt back in his tattered car and drove off leaving the remains of his headlight and other car rubble all over mine and my neighbour’s nature strip and the stricken roo lying in gutter….take some responsibility moron!!!!

And what was your speed??

I’m scraping off DNA samples as we speak – we will track you down and make you say sorry and that you will have more respect next time….

Reading this stuff on Riot Act is one of the few things that keeps me going through a bleak Canberra Winter. Best larf I’ve had in a month. What was the driver supposed to do if the roo was alive – give it mouth to mouth.

Could have given it a lift to wherever it was hopping to go.

I see what you did there…

It was a taxi driver and he was doing about 20-30kmph over the speed limit. The roo was checked to see if it survived or had a joey. It was dead.

The taxi driver had no interest in helping out but then again, what can you do.

The TAMs rangers were called to remove the road kill but some helpful local beat them to it.

Ebden Street is dark, has an issue with speeding cars particularly out of hours, but TAMS and ROADS ACT still do not accept that it is a road of concern.

I would like to agree with the original poster (OP) because it seems their heart may be in the right place. But like many others, I would need to know what exactly it is they are complaining about. Perhaps they could re-read their original post in the light of all the subsequent confusion, and resubmit it. It read to me like a driver had done some right things and some wrong things, but I don’t know which the OP thinks are which.

I once found a dead cat outside my house near the road. I cried, buried it and said a prayer. I didn’t realise I was supposed to whinge that someone else hadn’t sorted it out for me.

Ohhhh such stinging sarcasm. I’m looking up that big word certifiable now. How did you go with it?

I wasn’t being sarcastic.

I’ve just re-read the OP and I can’t see for the life of me what jdazzle has done to deserve this and no wonder he/she is biting back! Some mockery and gentle jokes about White Lady Funerals – fine! But that “certifiable” was risible and deserving of jdazzle’s scorn.

Hahahahahahahaha, oh the LOLZ…….stop it,……STOP IT!!!!!

jdazzle, I love you!

Thank you crappicker. That means a lot. I’m feeling ganged up on. Meanwhile the roo rots in gutter. And the lament remains.

I don’t understand why you didn’t call someone to collect it yourself? Would’ve been much faster than posting here?

I did. ???? I didn’t see the RiotAct as some sort of wildlife help-line. Though I have to say after today – I might be revising that thought….

I was. Stop judging me. You’ll find life becomes much less black and white and smarmily maintaining the status quo through ridiculing difference becomes harder to justify. Go on. You can do it.

For shame, what is this thread coming to when people make threats and such 😉

Count yourself lucky that FioBla hasn’t put his or her pointy white hat on and joined this thread!

Threats. There truly is a mafia! I think the gap between the smart and stupid has just got wider. Good luck.

I think the difference between merely stupid and actually certifiable becomes more apparent with every post you make, jdazzle.

Heheheh, don’t argue with the good Dr, he is 19 & knows EVERYTHING!.

First time I read this I thought you meant that you dragged the carcasses of occupants of your car who weren’t so ok to the side of the road. And yourself, which must be quite difficult. (-:

I love this strange little thread. Thank you OP.

See imagination and straying off the path! People are actually making jokes! How immoral and just not done! Re don’t bother dude as the opinion mafia dunna lik it.

Don’t call me dude, dude…(-:

And I always make jokes. That is my role around these parts. Funs, puns and apostrophes.

It wasnt you I was calling dude, dude, it was the opinion mafia dude who told me to not bother cos I’m not cool – ie Pork Hunt way back this morning.

And as for your established Mr Riot Muscles joker status, ill be my own judge of that.

This is the Plan 9 from Outer Space of threads. It’s so painful it’s good.

Jdazzle,

Not sure if you are ready for the interwebs yet. You may need to go do a course?

A course? What on, and why?
