Guys, I don't know about you, but I like to think of myself as a pretty laid back guy. It takes a lot for me to get pissed off. That being said....
Today I'm going to see my girlfriend and her team play a tennis match and when I get to the parking lot, the lot is full and there is a long line to get out. I see this old guy (50ish) get behind me in a little green KIA SUV and start to throw his hands up like 'what the hell is going on?' He's right: it's annoying that it's taking so long to get out of such a tiny parking lot (40 spaces). Eventually it becomes my turn to pull out of the lot, but there's a lot of traffic coming my way (4 lane road with median). And to boot, once traffic clears, some ASS in a limousine is (no kidding) going 15 mph down a 45 street coming at me. So in other words I can't pull out as I don't know if he's going to go straight and run into me or pull into this parking lot. Well, the old guy behind me lays on his horn. My first reaction:
I throw my hands up looking in the rear view mirror and yell "What the hell do you expect me to do?" (all of my windows were down and I was right next to all of the courts)
With that he yells "What's your problem, man? GO!!" I flipped him off and started to pull out. As I'm starting to pull out and cross the first 2 lanes to get to the median, he lays on his horn....AGAIN! I thought that was a really chicken shit move since he was going the other way and I lost it. He lit my fuse and I lost it. I stopped my car (yeah, 2 lanes of traffic coming at me) and started to get out and see what this old fuck's problem was. He yells "What's your problem, man? Just fucking GO!!". I completely snapped and casually get out of my car and start walking to his car. I said "I'm about to show you what my problem is. Get out of your truck and I'm going to light your ass up like a fucking Christmas tree, sir" (the sir? remember he's old). He chirps his tires as he flies out of the parking lot to go the other way.
Man, I just can't believe I snapped like that and was going to lay a finger on someone that old. But what was really embarassing is that all of this was yelled at right next to all of the courts. I felt like such a redneck for doing that, but he was in the wrong. No, I shouldn't have let it get to me, but when someone else has such little regard for human life (mine), I tend to get a little bent out of shape.
Sorry, just had to vent about that. I just thought it was pretty uncool, man.
