He was pointing his finger in the air out of the sunroof, and laying on the brake. I dought he could have anticipated me passing him.
I'm sorry if I make more then an english professor with my masterd trade... but that also means I dont have to type perfict english (although it is easyer to understand)

Default well..

Your all, speak in perfect english... then I ment to say was... I didnt take a highschool then spent 6years at collage then turn professor.. maybe I wanted money right away instead of acually working for it. I mite not be the brightest... but I finished highschool when I only needed my grade 10 to start welding. Sure I had to go back to techical instutions to learn stuff like hot tapping and under water, but it bets spending 6years working at mcdonalds to get yourself to be a english teacher for 40,000cdn a year.
No offence to anyone who is an english teacher.. personly I think you guys should be issued guns for all those back talking highschool kids.

I almost forgot what this topic was about..

Most of the time ppl flip me off when I pass them. I don't do anything more than just pass someone because they're driving slower than the speed limit, and sometimes they get pissed and flip me off out the window. Pretty pathetic. I usually laugh it off. Sometimes I give them the finger back while laughing at them. But that'* only when I'm alone in the car. I have to tone it down when i have friends (or family) in the car.

If people are tailgaiting me then I get pissed. I lay on the brake...and if that doesn't work I drive exactly the speed limit, and sometimes flip them off if they don't get the hint. I should probably stop since you never know how crazy the other guy is..but I hate ppl who drive like idiots and I like to **** them off now and then.

Thankfully I haven't had that problem...yet

But I've been on a 2 way street, one lane each way. About 3 cars in front of me dragging their a$$es at 50 (the limit..but too slow for me). I see a car in the distance coming in the opposite lane. Trying to judge how much time I had, I said...what the hell. I got in the opposite lane to pass the cars. I hit 85 and was back in front all 3 cars with a second to spare. I KNOW I scared the friggin HELL out of the person in that oncoming car! Semi-Close call, but good fun.

I follow him through the pass in the oncoming lane. I really was stupid to do this, because I saw a car in the distance headed our way. I make it in front of the van in time, but I'm pretty sure I scared that on-coming driver pretty good.

I was still pissed, and I got up on the GA, and flashed him back.

I scared the passengers in my car for a stupid reason. I felt bad afterward.

I gotta let road rage stop controlling me.

...I had to vent this.
Wow, yah, gotta stop doing that. I know I can't do that in NH...one day I flipped a guy off as he zipped past me while I was in a crosswalk and he stopped and started to get out of his truck (it was just then I noticed a shotgun on the rack inside )...that could have been so bad. Thank God my husband (ever the referee :P ) managed to calm him down before he got out all the way. He just said, "why don't you keep a leash on that b*tch" and drove away...believe me, I wanted to yell back, but I learned my lesson.
