RSPA: Playing Cat-And-Mouse w/Meth Tweakers

Rainbow Sparkle Pony Angel: Spokane rates high for stupid drivers. Seriously. But the morons and moronettes are less interesting to me than the meth tweakers. They are fun to pull next to at a stoplight (they invariably drive old oil smoke belching Caravans or Firebirds) and sneak a stare at them and when they look back, look away, then when they look away, sneak a stare again … playing cat and mouse with them makes them crazy because they are so paranoid anyway. Then when you drive off stare in your side mirror at them, they’ll see that and really get squirrelly. I’ve also done this in convenience stores with tweakers and the only risk there is they might be packing and shoot you. But they’re usually so broke they’ve long pawned all the guns they’ve stolen and too jumpy and hungry for popsicles that they won’t do anything. Teach the kids too! They can have tons of fun tormenting local tweakheads.

DFO: How can you tell when someone’s a “tweaker”?
