Funny from the Porsche Board (archive)

Thought this was funny in light of the Florida fiasco:

A terrible thing happened and Porsche is responsible. I refuse to accept responsibility for my own actions. Instead it is totally Porsche's fault.

I was driving along and mistakenly hit the brakes. I needed to press the accelerator. By pressing the wrong pedal I caused an outcome that is not what I intended.

It is outrageous that Porsche has done me wrong this way! They didn't clearly label the pedals. They are way down there by my feet where I cannot see them. As a result of Porsche's confusing labeling, I mistakenly hit the second pedal over when I intended to hit the third pedal.

Now I do realize that the Owner's Manual explains which pedal is which. But I cannot be expected to read that. You see, I am elderly. Or I was abused as a child. Or I am a victim of discrimination. And if none of those work, I'm sure I can think of something else.

Here is what I am demanding. I demand that Porsche allow me to re-drive that section of the road. They should re-design the Boxster's pedals so they are clearly labeled, and then I should be allowed to do the drive again and press the pedal I intended to in the first place, and would have pressed if it weren't for Porsche's great injustice to me!
