And to you, too, dude

It was a beautiful fall day in Georgia -- not too hot, not too cool. Had the top down... Eighties rock playing on the XM.

Lovin' life.

Decided to take a back road to the house so I could view the trees. They are changing color now and I love the way they look.

The road dead-ends at a three-way stop. It was pretty busy.

The car on my right went through. The car on my left went through. My turn -- right? Isn't that how a three-way stop works?

Nope. Some fat, old, gray-headed dude in a big red truck speeds through the intersection (he was on my right) just as I was going. He was turning left -- so he was driving right past me.

I didn't yell, scream or pitch a nasty hissy fit. Nope. The day was just too beautiful for it, and I was too relaxed from my ride home.

I just pointed to myself and mouthed "it was my turn". Know what I got in response?

Fuck you, BABY!

Totally ruined the rest of the day. Asshat...

I had some *itch flip me off the other day going up 75 when her lane had a wreck in it and they were trying to get over. Although she had her blinker on (I was on the phone but the phone is second nature to me) and I decided it was not her turn (the person in front of me let someone over. I am usually curtious, but it was a Lexus and I just didn't feel like it. Do you know that when she did get over, she came up right next to me and flipped me off like she was entitled to come over.

I totally understand how road rage starts. It took me a minute to realize what just happened and then I sped up to try and catch her. it was trafficy and I wasn't able to but I swear, if I had had a gun (even a fake one) in the car, I would have driven up beside her and shown it to her.

I know what you mean. It can wreck our whole day!

Ugh. Don' tlet the asshat ruin a perfect day. Crank up the tunes and think how sad his life is to pull crap like that.

I agree. He is not worth getting yourself so upset. Just track him down, fill his gas tank with sugar, flatten all four tires, set his truck on fire and walk up to his door and knock. When he opens the door tell him: “Here’s your bird back.” And sick him in the eye with your middle finger. I will make your day and you can still have time to enjoy the changing season.

I told Carl to look out for any red pickups with fat, balding ugly dudes on that particular road... he's on the hunt...

I have reciprocated as well Marni! Thanks!! :) I also read yours. Until this week however, I have been quite shy about posting on other people's blogs. I've been doing my own for sometime though, and it seems to be way more fun to have blogging friends!!

Marni said...

Boob lady: Welcome! Be on the lookout for the Coffeypot - that's my dad - and he loves boobs. He'll see the name of your blog and jump on over. Don't be afraid - he's harmless! :)

Don't get me started!!!!

I hate ASS-HATS. Ever notice that so many of them drive pick up trucks?

I can't stand rude people like that. And if my husband's in the car -- we are bound to have a "road rage" incident very quickly. The people in our town are completely CLUELESS drivers, and nasty to boot, so he goes off very easily.

I'm with your dad. I hope you find that moron and give him his bird back. :)
