We interrupt this blog for a rant...
To the belligerent jackass in the gold Passat:
This evening around 5pm my newly driver permitted daughter accidentally cut you off. It was not a premeditated act designed to piss you off. It was an inexperienced teen who hesitated at a busy intersection rather than pulling out confidently. It was understandably irritating to you and I was explaining that to her when you decided to remain about 12 inches off our rear bumper and lay on the horn for the next 45-60 seconds as we traveled a narrow-laned road with no shoulder.
That was a bit over the top but what you did next was the most infantile, outrageous, hostile example of road rage I have ever personally witnessed in my life. You passed us in a no passing zone then immediately pulled in front of us with very little space and stopped DEAD in the middle of the road. You clearly were hoping we'd hit you, presumably so you could then sue us. By the grace of God my brand new driver managed to stop our car with about an inch to spare. I so wanted to get your license plate so I could report your sorry ass to the police for being such a willfully reckless fuckwit. However, I was too busy keeping my daughter calm.
I noticed you had a young child in your front seat and the child was unrestrained. If you manage not to kill this kid before he or she reaches driving age I hope people are more patient when he or she is learning to drive than you are. The next time you decide to try to cause an accident because someone angers you on the road I hope you are the only person who gets hurt and not someone else's child. You are a fucking menace.
One seriously pissed off mother.
