I'm only creating this thread since this nearly happened to me whilst i was eating my chips during my lunch break. Some young lads in a van (who collect scrap metal) made the effort of changing lanes just to drive through a puddle on the edge of the road to try splash me and my lovely chips covered in burger sauce. Lucky i was walking faster than i usually was.
When this happens to me I laugh so they don't get the satisfaction of seeing me annoyed. I think I'm slightly immune though considering the walk down the lane to school was always full of massive puddles and with a teeny tiny pavement. I often turned up to class with the appearance of a drowned rat.
I have never done this to a pedestrian, the other day i drove through a puddle which made a a big splash so if someone was there they would have gotten wet but usually if i see someone on the pavement and a puddle I slow down and go round the puddle as much as I can (depending on the width of the puddle and the road of course.) Used to make me so angry would people would do it deliberately to get me wet.
When I was about 12 me and my friends purposely stood by a puddle willing people to drive over it to get us wet. This was in the morning before school and it was so fun, but we forgot about the part where we'd be wet all day. Sounds so stupid now
