Road Rage Compliment?

Today I had to drive from Sacramento to one of our stores in Hayward to replace some equipment ... about a 240 mile round trip.

In bumper to bumper traffic on the way home nearing Stockton, some dweeb in a mini van decided he didn't like the fact that I wasn't going faster than the traffic in front of me. He pulls up next to me and starts offering his opinion of me.

This started a verbal assault in which both of us unleashed our respective vocubularies of 4 letter words and sign language on each other. Apparently his vocabulary wasn't quite as extensive as mine, so in a last ditch effort to "get me", the dork yells "YOU DON'T DESERVE THAT CAR!"

Well, I took that as a compliment on my car, so I yelled back, "Thank you ... and you DO deserve your piece of crap Caravan!"

That made my hole day, and I laughed my butt off the last 60 miles home.

It WAS you I saw on I-5 then, johnpro!! I coulda SWORN I saw your Mustang right around Mountain House road.. I tried to catch up to you but, as you pointed out, the traffic was horrid!
Was that YOU in that Mustang ??!!?? Man . . . if I had of known, I wouldn't have said all those nasty things!! /forums/images/icons/blush.gif

/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif Actually, on your trip to Hayward from Stockton, you passed right by my house in Castro Valley! Next time, get in touch before you head out this way and we'll get together and share a beer before you head back . . . (just one, mind you /forums/images/icons/smile.gif) . . . It'll help take the edge off for the ride home!/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

"Darn it, that didn't come out right. Gosh I hate this mini-van!"
Hee, hee. Good one. I feel sorry for for his dog. I bet he went home and kicked it. Probably a poodle anyway.
Why is it when someone sees an older Mustang they think you sould be driving like an idiot?

John: I hope he's not sitting next to you in a helicopter on Sunday!!! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif (Good segue, eh?)
HA! I guess he told you!! The dorkmunder.
Great story ! Some people do deserve their rides - esp. dorks in minivans !!! (Imagine the frustration!) /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

Seems like more and more people roadrage at me (is my driving ability eroding?) - I've found that smiling, pointing, and acting like I'm laughing hard at them really tweaks them off !!!! It's more effective, and somewhat socially acceptable as well.../forums/images/icons/smile.gif Dickson
great reply - really hit the spot
I was just telling swmbo the other day, while driving on the highway, that if I drove some piece of crap car, I would seriously rig up things all over the car as a "defense" against people who ride a$s, and just do stupid stuff.

I think a windshield washer system from a junk car would work fine, filled with whatever I felt like covering the car behind me in if they get too close. Or maybe mechanical signs that I could pull on a cable and flip the sign down as I'm driving... then flip back up when the offender is gone.

Probably a good thing I have a nice car and won't put this crap on it... something like that might cause a spray of bullets /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
