Yep. I've driven there and see no difference between your idiot drivers and mine. They'd be run off the road in Houston, Atlanta, Boston, etc. They have no concept of merging at all! They'll just stop. On the interstate. Then they wonder why they've been rearended!

And he's no man. He's a P.O.S.

When I was 8 months pregnant with my first child, a man almost hit me in an intersection when I had the right of way. He screamed at me and harrassed me and followed me to a gas station. I got out of the car and he came running at me like he was going to do something to my hugely, obviously pregnant self. He only stopped when he saw my then husband get out of the car. Talk about a piece of chicken $hit. I couldn't believe he ran off after that. He was willing to come fight a pregnant woman over something that was his fault (I had a green light, he was turning on red) but wouldn't stay to fight a man. Oh I was mad. I wanted to kick his butt myself then!

the road we were on is two lane with a turning lane. he got in the turning lane and pulled beside me to wave his gun at me. he could have passed.

I knew this guy wasn't anything to be worried about when he stopped to keep me from getting behind him. It said to me that he was worried I'd get his tag and he'd get caught. A really thug doesn't give a crap if someone gets their tag number because 90% of the time the dang tag is stolen. I knew this guy thought he could intimidate me, but he was wrong. I refuse to coward to anyone. I fear no one but God.

Yup! Whenever my buddies are riding with me, they like to count the number of times I will be in the middle of a conversation, suddenly start shouting at idiot drivers, mutter "Stupid people piss me off" under my breath, and then return to the conversation as though nothing happened.

It's actually funny to me how fast he hauled off when he realized I wasn't letting him just get away with that. He was big and bad waving a gun but ran from a girl in a Hyundai? He was just such a coward.

I can't stand a cowardly bully. Just because I'm a woman doesn't make me scared of you. And if by chance I am I've got two 6' 4" brothers and a 5'7" husband that collect guns. I'm not a good one to tick off.

That sucks I was hoping he wouldn't get away with it. It's scary to think he could have actually killed you. It's even scarier to think how many times he has done this or will do this again. He is obviously not firing on all 8!

I carry , and I try to always think of the worse case so that I am ready in a situation like this. It would freak me the hell out if someone pointed a gun at me. I would never pull it unless I planned on using it. My sister thinks I'm crazy for carrying a gun because I'm a woman it just seems strange to her. I laugh and say if some one starts shooting lets see who you are diving behind I would never want to shoot anyone either but then again not sure to many people would.

I get the 55 and he's still there so I give the breaks a good push. Next thing I know he is driving in a turning lane waving a pistol at me. I don't scare easy. If he was gonna use it he would have taken it out of the case first. I grabbed my phone, slammed on breaks, and went to get behind him to get his tag number. Well he stops in the road. So i hit it in reverse and get behind him anyways. next thing I know i'm on the phone with 911 going 90 in my sedan coming into construction traffic. Well he u-turned infront of a cement truck and was gone before I could safely get turned around. i am so pissed. Luck for him I stopped carrying 2 years ago when my son was in his get into everything stage. I know I'll see him again and when I do he's momma can get ready for her news appererance to cry over the injustic of he son getting the max sentence (side note - don't piss someone off that's freinds with the DA and AG) because he's going to jail or maybe some place the rhymes with jail if he feels froggy. I'll be re-envoking my second amendment right again today. Thugs beware.

Wow I feel much better now.
and I thought i'd had a bad week
