I’m an agressive driver.
Not so much that I tailgate people, or run them off the road, but I do not put up with any dicking around by other drivers–if it’s within my control.
Today I had some errands to run, so I headed to the highway. I got on the on-ramp and immediately prepared to merge.
I noticed a truck coming up on the lane I was merging into, so I sped up.
So did he.
So I sped up more because I was running out of room. And, as soon as I did, he did.
This motherfucker wasn’t going to let me in. And it wasn’t like he couldn’t get over one lane to let me in–the two lanes to his left were empty. He was just being a dick.
So, since I was running out of room, I started to drift over.
I was watching him in my side mirror the entire time I was drifting.
I saw him start yelling.
I saw him honking his horn (heard it, too).
I saw the front end of his car dip down quickly as he put on his brakes.
In my review mirror, after I was over, I saw him throwing his arms up in disgust as he yelled at me.
Fuck you, you old bastard. Maybe next time you’ll show some courtesy.
I know he was probably pissed off for awhile afterwards.
That makes me smile even now.
