Glad everything worked out in the end but there's another scenario that can happen. The pedestrian could have been packing a handgun or knife! Then it doesn't really factor in how big someone is or how mad someone is. Looking down the bore of a pistol really changes one's perspective. That totally changes the situation & once you're out of your truck and in the confrontation.....just saying. You just never know how things will develop. That said, I would also be totally pissed if someone hit my vehicle on purpose!

1. Slam on my brakes and wait for him to cross

or

2. Drive around him

I chose option 2.... I drove to the left of him going 10 mph maximum. Well he decides to slap the bedside of my truck as I went by... you don't ****ing touch my ****... messing with my personal property is one of the few things that will set me off as I normally have a very very long fuse.

I slam it in park and get out and curse him out. I scared him and he starts calling me "sir" while threatening to call the police for me "almost running him over". I point out 3 marked cross-walks in the parking lot, none of which he was in. Furthermore, I pointed out that Lowe's was private property and the police would have no interest in coming for him being a moron. He kept repeating that he would call the police, then said, "I didn't even do any damage do your truck." To which I replied that it was the ****ing principle of not touching someone elses property and called him a stupid **** for good measure then left... haven't been that pissed in a long time, but nothing to gain from decking the guy and getting in trouble for assault etc.

So what would you have done if someone had *****-slapped your car/truck/etc.?
Just thinking about what happened to you pizzes me off. I TOTALLY agree about not touching someone elses property. It ain't right and it's one of the very few things that will set me off quick!! I take too much pride in everything I own (except my beater truck) to have some azzhat think it's ok to touch my stuff.

The world is full of asshats. I refuse to let them live in my head - rent free.

Life's too short and I'd rather be happy than right.
