One day I was at the gas station getting my tank
A minivan pulled
in behind me. He finished getting his gas before me and
was anxious to
leave. Instead of going out the driveway of the gas
to exit over a low curb. Well.... There was a fire
caught the passenger side of his van on the big bolt
that sticks out of
the hydrant. It made quite an interesting sound as the
the side of his van like a can opener. The gash was
six inches by
four feet. The fool kept driving after he first hit it.
stopped to see what the noise was. He got out the
stood scratching his head. Finally he walked over to
the passenger side
and saw the damage. How typical!
I once had a job that unfortunately required me to
a mini van. I am
not a tall person so I had to have the seat pulled all
the way up. I was
really surprised to find that it was almost impossible
to roll the window
down with the seat in this position. Maybe it's not so
much poor drivers
as it is poor design.
Just today we were cut-off by a beige boxy-creature,
coasting across four lanes of traffic, right to left,(and of course the
RIGHT turn signal was blinking for the remaining miles of the journey).
And, the driver was chatting gleefully on a cell-phone!!!
A dangerous combination...
i live in a dense residential area with lots of new
therefore, lots of new minivans. i also work at a local
center that includes offices for a dentist, a doctor,
and of course
pediatician, so there are a whole lot of minivans in
the parking lot.
anyway, i just got off work one day, and was on my way
parking lot to my car, i was just ready to put my key
in the door, when
out of nowhere, this woman in a dodge caravan comes
corner, she's looking in the backseat, fussing with her
baby, with no
clue as to where she was going. she ended up plowing
into the side of
my car. i drive a 1990 chevy blazer, which is built
a tank, but she
managed to demolish the whole left side and when she
got out started
yelling at me for parking my car where i did (i guess
i'm not supposed
to park in parking spaces). she ended up having to pay
for the repairs
on my truck, but i still have higher insurance rates
I HATE MINIVANS...
I am 23 years old and by no means feel proud in saying
that yes, I too own a mini van.
Unfortunately it was more of a logical choice than an
effort to get the babes.
I drove across country from Massachusetts to California
and needed something to sleep in.
Being in my position, though, does provide an
opportunity to smash minivan stereotypes in American society. I like to
blow by people doing 90 in the right lane,
spew obsenities, and occassionally throw beer cans out
the window. This is all of course for show and I wouldn't do it if it
for my love of people.
I love people. Someday I hope to drive my minivan off
of a cliff and watch it explode in a cactus-strewn ravine...but this is
all far off in the distant future.
For now, I'll have to get by looking like a soccer mom.
Love those drink holders by the way!
Hi there, Thanks for providing this great site for all
of us non minivan users so that we can vent our rage. My friends
bought a minivan, and they instantly started acting all "weird" they
a 20 something couple with no kids, and as soon as they got it they
talking about how cool it was. "it's got 8 cupholders!!!! I can have 2
drinks because I have 2 cupholders!!!!" they started driving really
and acting like they were middle-aged soccer moms (No offence to soccer
moms). I think that if you want to instantly age 10 years and lose all
street cred' you should go out and buy one. I also think that anyone
purchases one should be forced to have a psychiatric examination and a
repeat driver's test. These are not practical vehicles! I always hear
how they have such great visibility, but you know what?.. If all these
idiots weren't driving minivans in the first place we wouldn't HAVE any
visibility problems. And if you didn't have so many cro-magnon nose
little brats in the first place you could drive a CAR, and not piss so
many people off
One weekend my friends and I were traveling down from the

PULLOUTS" signs and about 40 pullouts over a thirty mile

slopes). After we passed a few signs and some pullouts I became
All of us in my car started pointing and then honking at the pullouts

base of the
mountain and were able to pass them, everyone in my car stuck both
hands out the window with their middle fingers displayed. I
are any stats. on how many minivan drivers are victims of road rage?
I must say this has been a very colorful introduction by many people
themselves. First I have to say that my beloved NISSAN was hit
killed and been sent to the big NISSAN graveyard in the sky.....the
unforgiving assailant was a minivan who rear ended us at 70 MPH on
Aaskan HWY. This incident was in the month of February....can
black ice. The curious thing is this....upon exiting his minivan
driver upon seeing my two children on the side of the road at 30
below......says to my husband...."did you see snowmobile lights in
ditch?" Needless to say we were quite at a loss for words
at that. I
have since replaced my beloved NISSAN with another NISSAN....only this
one is a NISSAN QUEST MINIVAN!!!!!!!!!!! I am now going to be
driver of the unforgiving juggernaut that destroys somones prize car.
This is my REVENGE!!!!!!!!!!!! To my fellow friends who drive
trucks and SUVs......I am so sorry to see you in the ditch all winter
long all down the Alaskan Highways and Byways as I drive smooth and
carefree in my big warm DEVIL MOBILE. A minivan kicked my ass
once....NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!! HELL ON WHEELS
A buddy of mine was driving an old ('91) caravan one time, and the
steering wheel came off in
his hands. Luckily, he was in a mall parking lot (where else in a
and was able to stop.
That one must have been built on a Friday in Detroit.
One day I was crossing the road to get to my mail, a big fat mom
me with her big fat mini van and took off my leg. It was the
that ever happened to me. If it wasn't for her big fat mini van
still have my right leg. The doctors all said if it was a smaller
would still have my leg. But no it is all rapped up in her grill.
