Exactly, if the person was clam, looked bummed and just ignorant of what to do, I would gladly help.

If you’re going to have a go at lstowell, then the it would have been best to point out that their statement highlighting your misspelling contained its own mistake.
They missed the apostrophe from the contraction and used “Thats” instead of “That’s”. Instead you created a story that has a massive hole in it?

Greetings,

I agree, your safety and the safety of others in your vehicle comes first. You never know if this type of personality can irrupt into violence. Anything can set that person off.

Even the person that shot the video said the same thing in his comments.

Best for now.

I'll be damned, you are correct.

There is a law on the internet that any response correcting someone elses grammar or spelling will itself contain at least one spelling or grammar error.

True, but to the other point, if you go down, calm them down a tad, then try to either push or remove a bit more snow [can't tell from the vid], at least they won't be endangering YOUR neighborhood.

Your call if you do this before or after putting the vid on YouTube...

Re: Perfect vehicle for snow...driver not so much

Not a massive hole. I typed the message on my iPhone, the phone changed the word. Believe it or not. Douche bag. There I spelled it. And I called you a name at he same time. Neat huh? Was that last question mark grammatically correct? What about that one? That one?

You're always "that gay". Oops I misspelled another word. I meant "guy" there. I'll edit it out later on. I wanna give the grammar police time to realize the error and sound cool correcting me.

Re: Perfect vehicle for snow...driver not so much

Greetings,

Love that edit option. I am the worst at proofreading and grammar. My posts say it all.

In any event, you cannot blame the guy filming ("camera man") this for his attitude. To me, he is clearly jealous of the JEEP. At least three (3) times he mentions the phase, "That Fancy Jeep", start at 1.28 in the video. To him, this is definitely entertainment.

Now, if you want to look at this deeper, then why is this guy filming for 7+ minutes? It seems to me again, that prior to his filming, our lovely Jeep driver troubles began. Therefore, it drew the attention of our camera man. Since you do not know what exactly transpired a lot can be speculated. Maybe our camera man was outside trying to help at first. Or, maybe he saw other folks trying to render assistance, but only to leave because of the Jeep driver's rage.

The bottom line is, the events that led to the start of this famous video was never presented to us or not fully mentioned in the YouTube commentary section. The only facts present to us is clearly the Jeep Driver can not deal with being mad and driving in the snow. Many members here at Jeepgarge.org, between the original thread and this current thread feel our drive has given the Jeep a disservice.

I do have to credit the camera man for something. That he does give some helpful pointers on how to get out of this dilemma. His kids will definitely remember this event.

As I said in Post # 6 of this tread, we will see this video again in another new thread.

Best for now.

I call bullshit, iOS is not going to replace any word, be it an “offensive” word or other with a non-existent word.
It wants to change “Doucebag” to “Douce bag”.
I could actually care less about your minor spelling mistakes, but you started to actually attack others so I decided to chime in on your false claim.

I am curious about one thing though. I have never noticed someone had a red REP POWER icon before; what have you done to deserve that?
