I had a similar experience to the scenario
you mentioned with people stopping in front of you
at the last possible second.
I drive a Bus and I was stopped at a set
of lights in the right hand lane-the left lane ended
at the lights and became street parking for a shopping
strip. Wanker in the left lane floors it away from
the lights and blind sides me, pulled across the front
of me and props to make a right hand turn!
I locked up and the only place I could
go was around the right hand side of him into oncoming
traffic, luckily they read the situation and hung
right back. I pulled up level with said wanker, blew
the horn at him to get his attention and shook my
fist at him to let him know I wasnt all that impressed
with him, got back on my side of the road and kept
Next set of lights, guess who's beside
me and getting out of his car, yep you guessed it,
Noddy in his little red car. He comes at me with his
fists up, so I got out and fronted him. As he got
closer I told him to back off, which he ignored and
kept coming.I put my open palms on his chest and pushed
Well, didn't boy wonder have a change
of attitude then. He got all sooky, and got in his
car and pissed off. Unbeknownst to me to the nearest
Cop shop to have ME for assault.
Guess what, it went to court, and I got
2 months jail for "Road Rage", 'cos the
Magistrate reckoned I instigated it by Bipping my
horn and shaking my fist at him. Lucky I didnt give
him the finger or I'd have got 2 years I guess.
My nomination for WOTY is a split decision
between the Cocksnot Gobbler and the Beak.
