2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: Embarrassing Overspray
November 19, 2010
This is a pet peeve of mine: Driving along when the car in front of you decides to wash their windshield and their cleanser sprays onto your windshield. Ever since that irate motorist did that to me in the R8 I couldn't help but regard it as the equivalent of spitting. That's why I always make sure when I want to activate the windshield wipers I do it before I hit the road or at a complete stop...with no one behind me.
But last night when driving our 2010 Mitsubishi Outlander, I accidentally activated the windshield wiper instead of the paddleshifter and consequently "spat" on the car behind me. It wouldn't have been too bad if the Mitsu didn't proceed to do it three times. I'm used to windshield wipers only spraying once per pull. But this one does it three times per pull. Ack!
I was too afraid to look at my rearview mirror to see if I annoyed the driver behind me. But if, on the off chance that he/she is reading this now, "SORRY!"
