Weird anecdote.

So I'm pulling in to the mall to take my wife out for her birthday and I stop at the stop-sign. About half way across his journey, the pedestrian yells at me "Hey, asshole, I'm half way through the crosswalk!" Stunned and puzzled I drive away after he passes and he continues on to wherever he's going. I turn to my wife and posit that perhaps he really dislike BMWs (arrested for driving while Bavarian..?). As I find a spot in front of Johnny Garlic's, i realize my culpability: I have a tendency to "blip" my throttle when slow or stopped and he thought I was trying to hurry him through the intersection.
Sorry, dude. I just like the sound.
Can't wait to get a BMWPE.

Even worse if you have headers.

Some people just think it's all about THEM.

On the other hand, maybe it was just payback. In my youth I'd rev (not just blip) my 510 just to watch the pedestrians jump.
