an open letter to the latest idiot who scraped my prius bumper

Dear Mr./Ms. Idiot,

Who exactly taught you how to drive? Oh, that’s right. Probably no one. Because that’s the only explanation for why you backed your vehicle into my innocent little Prius, not only leaving your nasty beige paint on my car but also taking a little souvenir paint chip with you. More importantly, were you raised by wolves? Because what decent human being damages another human’s property and then runs away without admitting the wrong that they’ve done? Do you feel good about what you did? Ha! I hit your car and I got away with it! I’m so proud. Is this what you teach your kids too? Maybe that’s why this nation is going down the drain. People like you who think you are above everyone else. People like you who expect to be treated like kings, but refuse to treat other people with common decency. Well, just you wait until someone treats you the way you deserve to be treated. It’s not so fun, is it?

Signed,
Angry Prius owner

  1. consequences of living in a college townI like the little town that I live in.  Most people don't, but I do.  Sure, there's a few drawbacks, but for the most part, the benefits outweigh the costs and I like it better here than my more urban hometown.  The thing that annoys me the most is the fact that my little town is a college town, chock full of annoying college kids.  Summers are best because most of them are gone and I always try really hard to enjoy the quiet before they come back.  Which is quite soon now.  Besides being just downright obnoxious, college kids also don't have much driving experience.  So I'm always very careful about where I park my baby Prius since I want to keep it ding- and dent-free for as long as possible.  And I think you can guess the rest from here... My husband and I decided to go out to dinner at our favorite Japanese restaurant today.  We got lucky and found a parking space quickly.  But I noticed that we were parked crooked.  And then the car next to us started backing out and I got really scared that they would scrape us.  But I didn't say anything because my husband hates it when I criticize his driving.  We just stayed in the car while they backed out and sure enough, they scraped us.  As my husband sat there dumbfounded, I kept telling him, "They hit us.  They f****** hit us.  They hit us, dammit...why are you still...
  2. an open letter to the director of the md/phd programDear Mr. Head Honcho Who Has No Clue What His MD/PhD Students Are Suffering Because He's Too Kooky Himself: Before it comes to your attention that I am not making satisfactory progress in your program and thereby hurting your chance of receiving NIH funding for it, I would like to make clear the failures in your program that have led to the waste of my valuable potential, which five years ago, you thought would blossom through your program. First off, we need more guidance. Even those of us who were very much involved in research before coming to medical school do not know how graduate school works. We assume that someone will tell us and guide us through the process since it is in your best interest that we finish in a reasonable amount of time. I waited and waited for this guidance and it never materialized. I even tried seeking it out through your required semiannual meetings with my appointed advisor. The last time I met with my advisor, I told him of my concerns with my major professor's mood swings and unwillingness to be open to my ideas and outright unprofessional behavior towards me. I also told him that I was not making the progress I would have liked to make by that time and that I feared that I would not finish my PhD any time soon because of my major professor's failure to be a good mentor to me. He sent you a report of my...
  3. my current obsession: the priusI’ve noticed that I become obsessed with things. Almost as if I need to obsess over something. It used to be music and songs. Then it became bands. Then there was a gap during med school because I was too busy studying. Then it was engagement rings when I knew marriage was on the horizon. Then it was wedding planning. Then it was the crazy in-laws and how to get rid of them. And most recently: tennis racquets. When I couldn’t really obsess over tennis racquets because of my sprained ankle, my obsession became the Nintendo DS Lite. Now that I’ve bought the DS Lite (and my tennis racquet!), I’ve moved onto a newer, most expensive to date obsession: the Toyota Prius. I’m scared to see what’s next after the Prius. A new house? I suppose it’s a good thing I won’t be able to afford one after the Prius. I spent the entire day today at lab reading about the Prius and debating over whether we can afford it and whether we should hunt down a 2006 model or wait for the new 2007s. Funny, my whole obsession started because of my post about the flaming red Hummer parking in front of my house. After writing the line about the Prius, I got to thinking to myself, “Why not get one?” The idea simmered in the back of my mind until this last weekend when we parked next to a Prius at the grocery store. I told my husband...
