Yes, that's exactly how I looked today!

I was driving on Gateway East in the OLD truck, because I had just bought an item at the Swap that wouldn’t have fit in my car. To be honest, I shouldn’t have been driving it on the freeway, because it’s very hard for me to drive this truck. It has a clutch that I have to press down as hard as I can, then shift the floor stick shift. The only time I drive it is to take the filled trash bags with mowed grass to this certain place which is close to my house.

As I approached the intersection, the lights were still green, but for no reason, I hit the breaks of my truck. I looked in my rear view mirror because the car in back of me started sounding his horn at me non-stop. I looked at the lights again and pressed on the gas peddle because it was still green, but then hit the breaks again, because it had now turned yellow. The car in back of me started honking his horn, non stop at me again. I looked in the rear view mirror and saw this man having a frenzied kidney attack.

He started thrashing his whole body hysterically all over the place, and bashing with his fists, in a most violent manner, on his steering wheel and on the windshield, AND waving clenched fists at me, while his mouth shrieked things I couldn't hear. Thank God! Then he started honking his horn non-stop again. I just sat in my car, and continued looking at him through my rear view mirror, and praying that the light would turn green again. I am NOT a wet noodle, but I was one this time and just sat in my car, as meek and silent as a mouse.

Finally the light turned green and I quickly pressed on the gas peddle to escape this maniac, but he had a faster car than my old clunker and passed me. He drove right along side of me and glared at me in rage, throwing one clenched fist at me (his mouth was still moving uncontrollably, yelling things at me). If I'm not mistaken, his face was the color of a beet, and it was just about to detonate.

He then sped off and got in front of me, all the while, thrusting one of his fists out his car window.

For an instant, I wanted to follow him and ask him if I could take his picture with my digital camera, so I could share it with my LJ friends, and then I thought I’d better not.

Now I'm curious, what's the worst
ROAD RAGE you've encountered so far?

Oh well, now it’s time for me to TOOT my own HORN!! This is what I bought at the Swap for only 25 bucks!! I scrubbed it clean, then went and bought five gallons of distilled water for ONE buck. The water is delicious and it’s INSTANT ICE COLD!

That's a great idea, but instead of filling the 5 gallon tank with distilled water, I'll fill it with Margaritas! ;o)

That's you with road rage?
The only thing I notice is your eyes seem to be a little darker.
Your nose is moist as always and the hair as lovely as usual.
What gives???...:-)...
Sep. 18th, 2006 12:37 am (UTC)
No. That's me petrified with fear!

The eyes looked darker 'cuz they were filled with tears!

My nose was actually dripping from all the crying!

Aww...thanks about complimenting my hair. A girl must look her best when experiencing mayhem!

What gives?? A penny for your thoughts!!

"As I approached the intersection, the lights were still green, but for no reason, I hit the breaks of my truck"

Why did you hit the brakes? For no reason? Theres gotta be a reason!

Id be pissed too if some person in front of me hit the brakes, preventing me from getting a green light!

Of course, I wouldnt blow up like he did. But it would leave me to wonder what the hell happened

To begin with, I was a little nervous, because I am not familiar with this old truck I bought recently. I've only driven it a couple of times to this place which is just a short distance from my house.

It's a 3-quarter ton pickup truck, and it's very hard to press down on the clutch, and the stick shift is quite long and hard to manuver. There was an awful lot of traffic, and their were giant rigs all over the place.

Since you've asked me why I hit the brakes, I've given it much thought. I believe it was because I kept hearing the distilled water dispenser rolling about in the trunk of the truck, and was afraid it would break.

I guess I had my mind on the water thingy in the trunk, and not on my driving. For whatever reason I stopped suddenly, that man in back of me made me pay dearly.

All right, get a little upset, but don’t go totally ballistic for such a minute mistake on my part!

Had 4 punks in an old beater fuck with my wife and I on the highway for 10 miles once.

They kept swerving into me, getting in front and hitting the breaks, etc.

I didn't pull over because I really didn't wanna shoot anyone. All I could picture was these idiots following me onto surface streets. I just REALLY didn't want to shoot a stupid motherfucker if they got up close and personal.

It definitely made me wish I was in my truck instead of my wife's compact car. I would have felt better exiting, and if they followed, seeing how they liked hopping curbs and such, as opposed to being stuck with driveway entrances and such.

Certainly interesting, and certainly one of the times I was glad to be armed.

I once had a simular experience.
I once had a similar experience.

I was driving my car at night on the freeway, and one of my brothers was the passenger. I was going the speed limit, when I approached this car in front of me who was going a little slower. I passed him and then got in front of him. All of the sudden, he picked up speed and started to tail gate me, then he drove to the next lane and kept his speed the same as mine. My brother and I turned to the side to look at him, and he had a gun pointed straight at me. It scared me so much, that I almost lost control of my car and almost crashed. He just sped on, never to be seen again.

I didn't have a gun back then, but I do now.

You're my kinda girl. Scrouging instead of plunking down money on something new and expensive. :)

pretty green paper
Scrounging is the only way of someday acquiring lots of the pretty green paper!

You're my kind of guy, too.
Sep. 18th, 2006 12:53 am (UTC)
I have my moments! I am the road rage-ee if you will, spitting mad and swearing so hard sailors blush. Passangers in my car admit to being a touch scared at hoe raging I can get.

I try to keep it to just swearing and shaking my fist. I have done some stupid things, thankfully nothing that has resulted in damage or injury.
Sep. 18th, 2006 02:47 am (UTC)
Oh noey!
Oh noey! Maybe you were he guy shaking his fist at me!! ;o)
Sep. 18th, 2006 04:25 pm (UTC)
Re: Oh noey!
I hope not. If you were driving in CA, in my area, I would hope you'd have notified my before hand!

My road rage really only peeks it's head when great examples of stupid appear. I'm not going to yell and get crazy at someone who is noticably searching for a street and then pulls out of the way when they find me falling behind them. I do scream and yell at the commuters that cut off a big line of cars that are all trying to exit for work, and they intentionally drive around the slow moving cars and cut into the exit lane at the last second.

Re: Oh noey!
Sweety Pie, you are not the only one who experiences road rage. We all do!
Sep. 18th, 2006 01:13 am (UTC)
Poor dog!

Glad you are all-right. Sounds like this guy was wound a bit too tight. I mean get a life dude, missing a light is not earth shattering. He sounds like a candidate for a major health problem. grin...
Sep. 18th, 2006 02:14 am (UTC)
major tantrum
If he keeps reacting in this manner, he's going to eventually have a stroke!

Never in my life had I seen a man go through a go through such an uncontrolled, major tantrum like this one did, and it went on FOREVER, because the damn light took FOREVER to turn green!!
Sep. 18th, 2006 01:36 am (UTC)
Sounds like you almost had a spiritual connection with this guy :P
Sep. 18th, 2006 02:07 am (UTC)
Yes, of the BANG, BANG kind. Thank goodness we never connected! :o)
Sep. 18th, 2006 02:20 am (UTC)
Or you would have had a purely sexual experience together and scratched that once a year itch. And if it got really hot and heavy...made a pancake together.
Sep. 18th, 2006 02:59 am (UTC)
The only sexual experience he'd have with me, would be with my 9mm pistol, shoved right between his eyeballs.

Bang, Bang! :o)
Sep. 18th, 2006 05:44 am (UTC)
You American's and your guns. :P You realize all it is ...is a phalic symbol. You're just holding a dick that makes a big bang. Whatever makes you feel like a big girl I suppose :P*eagerly awaiting your responce*

Sometimes it's good to have a cop around. I sure wished there was one when I saw this guy doing somersaults in his car! He was crazy!
Sep. 18th, 2006 02:06 am (UTC)
I made a left turn and a guy about a half a block away got pissed about it. Even though I was already turned and going down the road by the time he reached the intersection. He got right up on me and started tailgating me and flipping me off it was really bad. He honked his horn and was extremely hateful. So when that little red ant started to cross the road in front of me I just had to slam on the breaks. When his little car hit the ass end of my big truck well let's just say you couldn't tell my truck had been hit but his car had to be towed. On top of that in the state of Indiana if you rear end someone it is automaticly your fault. So he had to pay for the damage to his car. Oh and his face hit the windshield and bloodied his nose. I really felt bad for him.
But, as I told him when we were alone I just couldn't hit that ant. I was really hoping he would take a swing at me so I could have pounded some good manners into him but he didn't. I did suggest to his dad when he showed up that his son needed to learn better manners. But his dad was one of those guys who couldn't believe that his son could do anything wrong. Oh well...
Sep. 19th, 2006 12:41 am (UTC)
You have made my day! That asshole deserved everything he got, and thanks to a little red ant you THOUGHT you saw on the street!! :o)
Sep. 18th, 2006 02:58 am (UTC)
Worst case of road rage I've ever experienced was my own, I'm afraid. I'd like to think the worst is behind me, though.
Sep. 19th, 2006 12:32 am (UTC)
I'm sure your road rage has never come close to this guy's road rage!
Sep. 18th, 2006 03:51 am (UTC)
I could see his being a little irritated if he had no option but to be behind you, but the jackass could have passed you if you were going too slow for him! I dont see why he'd be that flipped out anyway. he's got some issues.

it wasnt really "road rage", but once I was coming home at around 2am on a main avenue, and there was almost no traffic around, except for one car. they started pacing me and doing weird speeding up/slowing down. at first I thought they wanted to race (which I didnt), but then I started slowing down substantially and they stayed a car length ahead, slowing down too. that's when I rolled down the window as I pulled out 9mm I used to have, and made a show of chambering a round. they decided to speed up, and I took the next right and made a big loop to my house in case they wanted to come back around.
the next day there were reports on the news of random shootings on I-5, and a friend of mine told me there were gangsters out shooting around to proove themselves or something.
so ya, that was fun.
Sep. 19th, 2006 12:53 am (UTC)
What I saw this guy doing, was NOT normal at all!

I'm so glad nothing happened to you, because I believe they were going to shoot you. Avoiding characters like these, is the best thing to do.
Sep. 18th, 2006 04:53 pm (UTC)
No one can explain road rage!! Maybe he had to go to the bathroom...

Looks like a great purchase!! I am sure you will enjoy it.
Sep. 19th, 2006 12:19 am (UTC)
I love it!
Even my baby Jewely is enjoying it! :o)

All I have to do is go to grocery store, where they have this great big thing that goes through many steps in purifying the water. I take the 5 gallon jug you see in the pic, place it inside the machine, add $1.00, and it fills it to the top.

The water comes out ICE COLD. My frig. has an automatic ice maker, but since I bought this thing, I don't need ice anymore.
Sep. 19th, 2006 12:35 am (UTC)
Re: I love it!
GREAT!!!! I am glad you are enjoying it soooo much!!

Have you sanitized everything in the unit the water contacts after it leaves the bottle?? If not, please DO as I don't want anything bad to happen to you.... OK??
Sep. 19th, 2006 12:45 am (UTC)
Re: I love it!
Yes, I sanitized everything, over and over again! I must keep my little Jewely as healthy as possible! haaaa
Sep. 19th, 2006 12:58 am (UTC)
Re: I love it!
GOOD!! I felt sure you had, and I debated whether I should say anything. but I decided that I wasn't going to take any chance at all, NO chance!!

I am very glad!!

Love you!!
Sep. 19th, 2006 04:35 am (UTC)
Mmmmm, that water looks so good. Mind if I have a sip?
Sep. 20th, 2006 11:22 pm (UTC)
Take all the sips you want! :o)

It's the best thing I've ever bought!
Sep. 20th, 2006 05:42 am (UTC)
you shoulda slammed it in reverse and smooshed his car!

on my mom's b-day i was takin my dad to the cemetary in my '49 plymouth, the flower shop we stopped at had a one way arrow in the driveway, there was a stupid woman in a bmw trying to go the wrong way in the driveway that was honking and flipping me off and flashing her lights. ~grinz~ i hit my HORN and she almost jumped out of her car. i figure this woman is too stupid to take the hint of my overly loud horn so i let off the brake pedal and started rolling directly at her while still holding down my horn ring. she finally figured out i wasn't gonna stop when i was about 2 inches from crumpling her car like a beer can!

I had a similer encounter about 14 years ago with some asshole. I was doing the speed limit in an old Dodge Ram 50, a sorry small truck with no power at all, and a tow truck was in the other lane doing the same speed and roughly parallel to me. I had been behind the tow truck but got over so I could turn a few blocks up. This guy in a BMW came zooming in behind me and started honking like hell, trying to pass us and when I got over he absolutely went nuts cause I had cut him off. Mind you he had been a fair distance off so I didn't really cut him off. We came to a stop light and the idiot actually got out of his car and started beating on my window and screaming shit at me. My brother, who had a busted leg then was in the other seat showed him a pistol and put a clip in it. That calmed the asshole down. When I put a clip in my pistol he ran back to his car. We were smart enough not to aim the guns at him or actually load them, so things were cool. I imagine we would have had to fight that asshole had we not been carrying guns.
Sep. 27th, 2006 01:54 pm (UTC)
Nothing knocks more sense into fools, than a pistol.

That was quite an experience you both went through. I'm pretty sure that guy's 6 ft. under by now, either because of a heart attack, or a bullet logged between his eyeballs. :o)

Sep. 27th, 2006 03:55 pm (UTC)
I am thinking he is probably in prison by now.
