Why didn't you mention your surgery? Make him feel like a jerk..


I had a little bit of a go (as the Brits say) at some dude this morning. As I'm going past at low speed he suddenly starts pulling over to the right, into the shoulder/parking lane, completely cutting me off. So of course I have to brake hard and move over, before going back around him.

As I go by I yell something about using a blinker (which he obviously didn't) to which he replied with the finger. Now, I normally just keep going in situations like this, but something about this guy inspired me to stop. He rolls down the window, I said something else about his attitude regarding his dangerous driving (including some expletives), and his response was, "Bro, I was only going like 5 miles an hour." So of course that just made it that little bit worse, and I really laid into him (many more expletives) to the point that a delivery guy standing nearby gave me a big smile and a nod as I rode off. Call it pointless if you will, but I'm pretty sure that guy is going to be more thoughtful about signaling and looking for bikes.
