      Ohhh poor baby, did those words hurt? So I take it you feel it was a stellar idea to drive a golf cart on a busy ass road, I am human, and I do feel bad, but not for the dumbass on a golf cart I feel bad for the person that hit and killed the dumbass on the golfcart! That person is probably screwed in the head for the rest of their life because they killed a dumbass on a golf cart that was driving across a busy road!
