Scared the crap out of an old guy walking his dog today. Came around a corner in a parking lot, very low speed. I saw im. Pushed in the clutch and instead of tapping brake, w/ boots on my feet are big and the pedals are small. I sort of was aimed at im going around the corner and revved the engine a little (from his perspective I'm sure). The clutch was engaged, the car didn't lurch at all I just clumsily mashed the wrong pedal and revved her.

I seriously thought about turning around and explaining that I didn't mean to rev, it was a accident! But didn't bother. He'll get over it. gesh :oops:

Maybe it was a Freudian rev?

You should have offered to launder his undies.

Saw the guy walking his dog again today. It's a big parking lot. I stopped, got out and talked w/ im a bit. I apologized and explained what happened.

I don't know why I opened this thread. I was no where near hitting im; even missing the brake pedal I wasn't w/in 30 feet of im. It was just awkward as my car was going around (clutch engaged) I was aimed right at im and revved instead of tapping the brake. He wasn't diving for cover or anything like that but it alarmed im just like it would anyone. gesh.

Anyway, a happy cordial ending to a non event.
