Question Some piece of *&$^ flipped me the bird with my wife and kids in the car...

So... I'm driving home from a morning at my kids' Karate... and some POS in a POS truck with "I Love Florida" stickers all over it... yet with West Virginia tags on it decides to be a turd in front of me. As he's turning off the main road he flips me the bird.

I won't say what I did next... yet... but I'm interested... What do you do?

Ming you, this is in a nice quiet residential area by my crib.

I don't give it a second thought.

If that's the worst that happens to ya in a day Id say you're living pretty good. On the other hand if this is a regular occurrence maybe you should take a little closer look at your driving style - you are from joisey right?

Out comes the Joisey in him.
Why do you have to do anything? He wasn't harming you other then maybe hurting your ego.

I'd laugh, grab my wife's hand and tell her how glad I am to be doing so much better then that asshat that just turned off.

Pete, some things you just need to let go.

This



Sticks and stones may break my bones but words (or someone telling me I'm #1) will never hurt me. If you did anything you might have anger issues.

New Jersey driver meets West Virginia driver. How could it go any other way.

Wife and kids in the car? Nothing. If your kids noticed and understand what it is then you use it as a teaching moment to let them know that behaving in that manner is a lower life form showing the world what they are and that they shouldnt act in the same way.
Now if the wife and kids arent in the car I blow em a kiss and continue on my way, and if they follow me depending on their continued actions, well then they end up having a really bad day. Your results may vary.

Pete you know he probably thought you were kin. Them Westies like to keep it in the family and he was just extending an invitation.

First im not apologizing to anybody, second even if I wanted to I cant because I have been blocked from the thread so I dont know what else is there. Third this is a different thread lets not muck it up.
