2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV: Laughed At
May 05, 2012
It happened just seconds before this shot.
Scott Jacobs was shooting the i MiEV for the Long Term Introduction and I was driving. I was waiting in a private lot when a Toyota Prius full of teen boys pulled up perpendicular to me not five feet from my windshield. All five of them looked. And then one pointed. And then he laughed. And then they all laughed.
I've got thick skin-- I do write on the internet for a living -- I can take it. But when teenagers in a Prius laugh at you, it stings just a little. At least I was being more energy efficient?
