Today I splashed a pedestrian.
The other day I was driving home in the rain – massive puddle by some railings and a kid leaning over then, arms out, Titanic style.
His mates were egging drivers on to pin it through the puddle and the kid by the railings waving too, soaked head to toe and grinning ear to ear!

It is actually illegal and can and shouild be reported to the police, and a claim made to the drivers insures for compensation, taxi fare home, cleaning of clothes ,loss of earnings etc.
But then yeaterday night got shouted at by 2 walkerists for the sray comming off my back wheel, due to no mudguards as yet,didnt seem to matter that my shorts and the rest of me was soaked.Posted 4 years agoernie_lynchMember
Well obviously it’s not funny if it’s you that’s been splashed, that goes without saying, but it’s hilarious if it’s someone else.
It’s a bit like failing to lower your head sufficiently whilst walking through scaffolding on a building site and smashing it on a scaffold clip/bolt, for everyone who witnesses it it’s extremely difficult to stifle the laughter, but for the person who’s done it it hurts like ****.Posted 4 years agotoppers3933Member
Back when I was a youth I got a girl waiting at a bus stop one Thursday evening. She was wearing white jeans and it was tipping it down. For about 30 seconds I thought it was hilarious. I quite quickly felt quite guilty and very nearly turned round to go apologise. Bottled out and felt really quite bad about it for longer than was strictly necessary. A few weeks later it happened to me so I suppose what goes around comes around. Wouldn’t dream of doing it now. You bad bad people.Posted 4 years agoRoter SternMember
Whilst we were ‘on tour’ with one of my old bands here in Germany we were on our way to the venue in the pouring rain. I was with some of the band in a car as the bus had left earlier. As we entered the town there were two girls standing next to this huge puddle. The driver of our car (and also the other guitarist) drove full pelt into the puddle completely soaking the two girls. He then stopped and in his politest voice asked for directions for the club. I know I shouldn’t have but I had tears of laughter running down my cheeks. 😳Posted 4 years agoglupton1976Member
Just be glad you weren’t on your driving test.Posted 4 years agobusydogMember
a year or so ago, I was following a couple young guys in a pickup who were purposely driving close to the curb during a rain in order to splash people on the sidewalk and at bus-stops—until they got too close, hit curb, blowing out the front tire and bending the rim and generally trashing the front suspension.Posted 4 years agogarage-dwellerSubscriber
I got a bow wave over me from a bus a few years back. My coat stopped a fair bit of it if only the collar had been closer fitting as it went down the inside. Home, showered, changed, coffee and a train to work an hour later. Annoying at the time but really not that traumatic.Posted 4 years agoMarmosetMember

Someone did it to me once. Fortunately for them they just got through the lights just down the road before I got there..
It’s not funny from the receiving end. I had to go home and get changed and be late!
Were you just called Pierre up until this point? 😀Posted 4 years agomilky1980Member
Up there with farts imo.
Can also use it to your advantage. Good looking lady? Splash then stop and apologise. A bit of acting to try and avoid the puddle helps here (late braking, slight swerve etc). Offer to pay the dry cleaning bill. Bingo, phone number and something to talk about.
