Someone took a shot of me (as opposed to "at" me )

On 10-08-2013, a guy in a eastbound, newer red Chevy sedan took a smartphone pic of me as I was waiting to turn left westbound out of my neighborhood.

He was marking me from a time where he must have thought I turned left into my neighborhood in front of him a little too close for his comfort.

My question to him would be:
How fast were you driving eastbound in the 45mph po-dunk residential area?

I had a line of cars coming up on my <rear> and wanted to get out of the way. You also had a line of cars on your <rear>. If you had been doing the posted speed limit in the po-dunk residential area, would my turn have been too close for your comfort?

He marked me with his spy camera, but I remember him also.

Was the person taking your photo also driving? If so, he's in no position to judge someone else's driving, by fiddling with an electronic device while driving. If he's really concerned about safety, he should put that junk down and pay attention to the road.

^^^^ Right On!

... unless he's taking pics of Saturn S-Series Cars for this Spot & Shot thread.

like these...

I call this series 'On My Way To Work' ...It comprises all the parked (and one moving) S-Cars I pass regularly on my rural commute to my job. The multiple images are taken different days in an attempt to get a 'decent' shot.

In order of appearance...

Went to the grocery store today and there was a 1st gen SL1, so I parked next to it, when I came out, there was a 2nd gen SL2 parked on the other side of me. Jackpot! Three in a row, so I had to take a picture.

_Your_ right. The red car is on _your_ left. Red car can't be a '96; Flat dash would make it a '93 or '94. Car on _your_ right is a gen-3 SL1, not a gen-2 SL2.

For those of you who still need convincing that wagons are the coolest. Up in my daughter's college town I spotted this little blue beauty being filled up at pumps and subsequently driven away by a real live honest to goodness under 25 female of the opposite sex. Plus it had a nice set of pinstripes!

Default Re: S-Series Spot and Shot

When I was little (I'm only 20 now) my parents and I would play a similar game, but we just racked up points, not slaps. It was kind of like Whose Line Is It Anyways? (which is coming back!) in that the points didn't matter.

We had a complex points system:

S-series: 5 points for Sx1, 6 points for Sx2
LS: 7 points
Vue: 6 points

We once spotted a semi with a Saturn box trailer, presumably delivering parts or something. Since I spotted it first, I got a whopping 20 points.

...

In the ,70s when VW beetles were as common as squirrels we would play Slug-A-Bug. There are as many variations on this game as there are hairs on squirrels. We would chose a color and rack up how many we could spot from the rear seats of our mom's 1972 white and deep yellow VW Bus. My brothers and I were already punching each other so the slug your opponent on the upper arm component of the game was redundant.
Good Times!
