Doofus Of The Day #135


Today's Doofus is from Germany.


Police have banned a woman driver's car from the road - for being too untidy.

The Vauxhall Astra was so full of junk, magazines, old clothes and even bits of furniture that they could barely see the driver at it roared down a motorway in Dusseldorf, Germany.




The driver - who has not been named by police - has been banned from taking the car on the road again until it has passed a tidiness test.

Police said the car was so full of junk the woman's face was pressed up against the windscreen as she drove.

"I'm sure this will make most people feel a lot better about leaving the odd sweet wrapper lying around in their car," joked one police source.


Y'know, I've been guilty of allowing junk to build up in my truck now and again . . . but ye Gods and little fishes! Looking at that picture, I can't imagine how she could have enough space to drive at all!

I worked with a lady like that. An obsessive hoarder. Her house had so much junk in it there was literally two small paths from entry to chair, to kitchen to bed and bath. The rest of the large home was to the ceiling with stuff. She worked to shop. She'd buy stuff and not even unwrap it, just add it to the stack.

The house was clean in the traveled areas, but it was just sad. The car wasn't much better.
It's a form of mental illness I think.

word verif. biplar - I'm not kidding.

I think this qualifies as OCD... Now on the other hand, years ago I knew a guy whose car was FULL of beer cans... he would drive to the beach, drink beer, throw them in back, sleep it off and come to work the next day.

How the heck did she get into the car in the first place? Mindboggling...
