9. Happens To Me Too, Mo
Thu Mar 2, 2017, 10:08 AM
Mar 2017

I drive a 4 lane divided highway (but not limited access) to and from work. I had a guy flip me off because i was doing 50 in a 55 and when he caught up to me, there was someone else in the left lane, going a little faster than me, but no room for him to get around me. When that car cleared, he got to the left lane, shot ahead of me, flipped me off and ducked into the right lane just when the first car that passed me was trying to merge right. That person had to swing back to the left.

So, he nearly drives into my trunk, passes two cars going 15 or 20 above the speed limit, nearly causes an accident and he flips me off!

Go figure.
