Playing With Fire

My brother and five of his friends are over spending the night before they all head out to The Big Easy for New Year's. They went and bought some fireworks so we all headed out to light them. While setting them off, we noticed a car coming down the street (we live on a dead-end road, outside of a subdivision). We all back out of the road and comment that they seem like asses since they actually sped up to drive pass us.

The truck (one of those little F-150s) gets to the dead end and turns around. I was turning away from the road when I noticed a light, like they had tossed a cigarette out of their window at us. I thought, "How rude," and then something solid thumps into my back.

Those fuckers had tossed a lit bottle rocket out of the car at me. It hit me in the back (thank god I had turned around), fell to the ground, and shot off towards our house. My mom's SUV was parked right there with the back open, so I guess it's also a good thing that it didn't fire off into there.

Who the fuck drives around throwing light fireworks at people? I wish we could have gotten their license plate. I would have loved to have called the cops on them.

Bastards.

Fuckers. (oops. Can I call them that? Feel free to edit away if needed. Jackmonkey is also appropriate.)

In the NY Metro area, there have been two stories of teenagers throwing things at cars causing serious injury. In one case it was a frozen turkey, and the lady ended up in critical condition, with a tracheotomy and everything. And in a case the other night, it was a reindeer decoration thrown at a city bus, shattering the windshield and causing facial lacerations and glass to land in the driver's eye.

The news interviewed a couple of teenagers for their opinion and one girl said "If there were more things for teens to do in this town, things like this wouldn't happen." Seriously.
