"slammed him into his car and made him move." and who's the lucky one? News Flash: RV owner shot at gas station by VW owner.
Why didn't you back up and go around him?

I understand your being _issed, but did you stop to think what might have happened had the jerk been armed? Good way to get a bad case of lead poisoning.

Robert, was this incident connected with your other post of breaking the handle off the washer/dryer?

Not a good day it seems. Keep the sense of humor!

Assault and battery are absolutely no fun to get arrested for. Fines, mandatory jail time, and anger management classes makes biting your tongue the best move. That is considered road rage and fines and sentences are brutal!

I think I'll file this with the other reasons to flat tow.

I also hope that once I retire I'll be able to remind myself that I have the advantage. I have my home with me. Car blocking me......who cares I'll just make a sandwich and watch T.V.

People are rude, blocking pumps while they go in store shopping. On the other hand sounds like you had a lucky day not getting your brains blown out. Some people just need a reason and that was it.

I had an incidence when I started riding a motorcycle. A woman stopped in the inside lane and decided to do a U-turn. It didn't feel right so I just stopped behind her and waited. She was being dangerous so I followed her and pulled beside her in the Doctors office.
I eventually pulled my phone out of my pocket to record her license, etc.....

When I got to this part of the story when telling my co-workers one of them said his wife would have thought I was going for my gun and probably shot me. This changed my thinking in the car and on my motorcycle. I just look at my road time as a video game now where people are trying to kill or hurt me. It works for me and I'm no longer emotion on the road. It's no longer personal when things happen.

WHY did you post YOUR reaction on a Social Media platform??


Incident and your response happened 2 days ago.........plenty of time to rethink what you did and NOT want to spread it around.

Sounds like a serious need for anger management classes.

customer going into the store to buy things and give the cashier cash to prepay gas and pump it when he comes out?
i almost think i'm the only person who uses a credit card at my local station. i often stand behind 4-5 people who want a pack of smokes, lottery ticket and $5 in gas from the cashier or even just gas. when i pump my gas using my credit card and then walk into the store instead of moving the car because all the parking spaces are full i get the stink eye and rarely someone confronts me.
the locals assume i paid cash in the store like they will do so i must be done.
[moderator edit] are people going into a gas station and waiting in line to pay cash to have the pump prepaid unless you are so poor you don't have a credit or debit card they take and use it at the pump and if gas is all they want are done in 1/3 the time..


retired yankee born here living in the deep south with a accent that people ask if i was born in russia, scotland, or ireland.
