So, I'm driving to work today in the center lane with the usual bumper to bumper rush hour traffic, I am half a car length behind the SUV in front of me. My front bumper is directly next to the drivers door of the car in the lane to my right.
Driver to my right decides he wants to get in my lane so he puts on his directional and starts pulling into my lane.
I beep my horn.
He keeps coming.
I lay on the horn, pissed now because this guy is just being a pushy dick.
I finally have to back off because if I don't, he will hit me.
He pulls in front of me......And stops, puts the car in park and gets out, in the middle lane of the highway, during the morning commute.
I probably should have been a bit nervous. I hear about all the road rage incidents on the news. One guys beats another with a tire iron because he threw a cigarette out the window and got ashes on the guys car driving behind him. People have been shot for cutting off others in some places. I wasn't thinking about that though. I was running on very little sleep and I was just plain pissed off that this jerk figured he owned the road and could push his way in wherever he wanted.
What did he think he was going to prove by getting out of his car? Did he think he could bully me verbally like he did physically with his car?
He approached my window waving his hands and shouting "Didn't you see my directional?".
"Didn't you see my car?!?"
"Didn't you see my directional? I was pulling into the lane". He shouted louder, with an accent from where I didn't really care to try and fathom.
"Didn't you see my car? Where were you trying to pull into, my front seat? Didn't you hear my horn?! Did it look like I was letting you into my lane?! Do you think just because you put on your turn signal it gives you the right to cut someone off? To push your way into their lane?".
He started retreating back to his vehicle waving his hands some more and called me a bitch. To which I responded "Get back in your car and learn how to drive dickhead!".
He has no idea how close he came to me driving my car right up his obnoxious ass.
Do not mess with a tired cranky Irish Taurus woman, she'll kick your ass.
