I was driving on the highway once and saw a truck with a business logo being driven by an apparent lunatic. He was racing, then suddenly stepping on the brakes, weaving in an out of lanes, etc. This was before cell phones, or would have called the police.
The thing is, the logo was a very unusual last names. Same last name as a woman I worked with. I asked her the next day if she knew that business. She said it was her husband's business.
I asked if he drove the truck. She said her brother-in-law did. Her immediate reaction was, "WHAT DID HE DO THIS TIME?" I told her.
She told me it wasn't the first complaint they got, but it was the last. They had told him one more complaint and he was out of a job.
Moral of the story, if you are going to drive like a nut, don't do it in your company van.
That's terrible. I always wonder what goes through the heads (probably not much) of people who do stupid things like this while surrounded by logos, signs, or nametags that make them easily identifiable. It reminds me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1e-Ct0cWqzw
I worked next door to a big box electronics store one time. They have some VERY unique vehicles for their company. I was leaving work one day, in a left turn lane (right side, as there were two and I had to turn right within a block). The company car was beside me in the inside left turn lane. There were two people in the car, which I thought a bit odd because the store was closed, he wasn't going out on a call, but okay, whatever. Light turns green, I go, and I get a decent bit of speed to catch the protected right turn light ahead of me.
Company Car guy whips out in front of me, cuts me off with barely INCHES between his car and mine, then hits his brakes because...he sees a red light? Except it wasn't for the turn, that was still green. But we sat through it. I barely avoided hitting him.
The red light gave me enough time to write down his license plate number. I tried to call the store, but they were closed. So I called the national number for this part of the company and registered a complaint. The woman I was speaking to seemed surprised that someone would be using their car after hours with a passenger, and was very pleased when I actually had the LP number to give to her.
The thing is, before that, people from that company would whip through the parking lot at dangerous speeds and nearly hit many of our clients, as well as their small children and pets. After I made that complaint, somehow they started being a lot more conscientious in the shared parking lot.
