When I was a poor broke college kid, had a 2000 f150 with ~250k mi. Someone pulled out in front of me one day and I locked it up. Pad shifted in the caliper on the front right. Wore funny, made racket. Long story short, I popped the pistons out after the pad wore through. Luckily I had been expecting it so I eased to a stop with the e-brake. Apparently that's what teh e-brake is actually for. But yea, I'll go ahead and guess ignorant college kid, or up and coming hip hop artist.
