Default Some people are Aholes..

I ran my truck through the car wash this afternoon, and as it was pushing me out the other side, some moron in a mini van thinks it is a good idea to sit there in the way. The wash kept shoving my truck forward, and it was obvious I would hit him unless he moved or I braked, which of course you are not supposed to do in an automatic wash. So, I just tapped the horn a few times figuring he had just lost a little situational awareness, and maybe he would realize the wash had me literally within inches of his bumper (and yes, I did end up braking). What does said asshole do? He flips me off of course. Then as he makes his way around the parking lot, he flips me off again, so I return the favor. Had I been able to catch up to him (got blocked in by another car) it might have turned a little ugly, because I don't have tolerance for assholes like that. Yes, I'm sure I would have punched him square in the face. I'm THAT asshole.

I did. You didn't hear me. I was supposed to be next but you closed everything down like I wasn't even there.

Was just telling my oldest daughter about delusional drivers who screw up and then flip YOU off when you tell 'em about it.

Hard to be patient when other folks stupidity puts my property and life into danger.

Speaking of assholes and hate, I HATE stupid drivers that can't seem to park between 2 white lines. In those situations where I had to struggle to get into my vehicle, I used to leave this business card:

It does mean something. For me, when he flipped me off, it was an indication that he wanted his ass kicked.
