    This happened roughly over a week ago. (See: Bobby Schmurda)

    I was on my way home from Marietta when I was getting off of 75/85 to I-20 east (by Turner Field) when a car was riding veeeeery close to my tail. I couldn't make out what make/model of car it was, so I took the curve that transitions you onto I-20 pretty aggressively (around 60ish) in hopes he would back off a bit, but nope, he stayed right on my tail.

    Once we came out of the curve he merged over to the left and darted off (not quickly, either, lol) and I decided to go after him and caught up with ease. We engaged in "spirited driving," short bursts, sprints, etc for the next 3-4 miles or so and I was pretty underwhelmed from how slow he was moving. The key here is that in this spirited driving, I gradually accelerated each time because I drive an auto and there's always that initial hesitation whenever you accelerate which isn't good for longevity purposes. THIS HERE is where it gets good:

    He pulls up next to me in the HOV lane (we're going about 70-75), he chucks the deuces and slowly pulls away. He gets in front of me, merges over two lanes and BOOM. All I saw was sparks underneath his car, debris was flying from underneath and I had an "Oh Shit" moment, lol. I pulled over with him to be sure he was good and to check out what was going on, lo and behold a HUGE hole was blown out of the side of his block.

    I asked a few questions and it became apparent he didn't know much about the car, or cars, to begin with, or how in driving an auto you can't just mash the gas and expect the engine and transmission to take as much abuse as he was giving it. Buddy was FLOORING IT, giving not a single fck, and it cost him.

    KA24DE ftmfw. Just thought I'd share.
