So im driving home from work. Im on the highway and I see a schoolbus way up ahead. I have been behind them on this road b4 and they make frequent stops even though its directly on the highway.
So he is like a half mile ahead or whatever and he is stopping several times. Finally I catch him and I get over in the passing lane and there are a couple cars in front of me that need to pass him. So I am hoping they will hurry up and pass so I can pass before he stops again.
finally they pass him and its my turn. I am surprised he hasnt stopped yet so I figure he'll stop any second. So right as I am about ready to pass he puts on his right turn signal so he could turn. Well it kind of faked me out so I ease on the brakes thinking he was going to throw the stop sign up and stop.
So this idiot in a minivan comes flying up right behind the bus and cuts in front of me and squeezes between me and the slowing bus. if that wasnt bad enough he lays on the horn and then, the capper, he aggresively throws out the big ol "what the f&^%?" hand gesture". (arm extended, palm up etc)
Im thinking "oh NO he didnt"
so he goes flying by and I had slowed down so it took me a little while to catch him, lol. (4 cylinder Tercel) So I start reeling him in. I had several minutes to think about it. It was like I had Ghandi on one shoulder and Bodyhard on the other. Ghandi was like "man, let it go, u got a 3 day weekend, just chill". But then BH pops up like "bro, u gonna let them throw the hand up on you like that and u arent even going to go investigate the situation further? whats next, u gonna give em a backrub?"
So he stayed in the fast lane and so did I. Im pretty sure he knew I was there and was going to catch him, lol. So I finally caught em and he had got into the slow lane so I pulled in behind them and they were doing maybe 60-65. So I get behind them, not RIGHT behind but close enough. So after 10 secs or so dude slows way down, lol. Im like "oh, u WANNA play games huh?"
So I just eased over to pass them and I gave him a nice slow look right in the face as I passed. turned my head all the way around etc.
It was 2 dudes. The driver was some big gangly looking dude with tats etc. He looked incredulous that id actually look him in the face and I saw him turn to his buddy and say something. (hmmm, tall, long armed dude..I was already picturing me shooting on him to take him down, lol. I aint gonna slap box no b-ball looking dude)
Then he sort of whipped around in the other lane like he was going to immediately repass me and I was like "well, here we go" lol.
anyway, I didnt slow down or speed up and dude didnt pass me. He just stayed like a couple cars behind in the passing lane and he didnt pass me until I had to slow down for a light way on up the road.
Probably a good thing BH (or anyone for that matter) wasnt with me because I can almost picture me speeding way up and pulling off the road on up ahead and standing by the road to return dudes hand gesture back to him.
Is it right to play games on the road like that? nope.
is it wise to possibly start trouble when u have no idea of the possible outcome? nope
Then again sometimes it doesnt feel right to a man to let someone punk him out for no reason either.
