My wife and I were driving home one night in seperate cars (both Tibs). She's a good driver, does pretty good off the line and getting better all the time (learning to use the higher revs of the Tib <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> ) and scores quite a few kills (much to other driver's suprise <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>.

Anyway, we were on a 2 lane road and it was narrowing down to 1 lane. I was following behind her and this BMW M3 pulls up on our left. He just keeps going even though the cones are narrowing and my wife was protecting her lane but he just kept moving over towards almost hitting her so she had to back off. I was sooooo pissed and just flaming behind the wheel.

So now we're at the stop light, the BMW, followed by my wife, followed by me. Right after the stoplight, the road widened to 2 lanes again. The BMW took off at a decent clip, my wife quickly followed and I just floored it. I quickly zoomed around him and cut him off and slammed on the brakes (I was pissed and not exactly rational <img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>) My wife had zoomed up behind me and cut him off so he couldn't pass. This gave her the great opportunity to flip him the bird. Funny enough, he acted like he didn't do anything wrong. So then we just stayed side by side doing 10 <b>under</b> the speed limit just to irk him off.

Finally cooler heads prevailed and we turned off to finish heading home. I'm sure he must've wondered what those 2 crazy Tibs were up to. I'm so happy to have my Tibs or we never would have been able to catch him like we did <img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

Not exactly a kill, but satisfying nonetheless!

No offense, kevdog, but that was immature and extrodinarily dangerous what you did. I mean, slam on the brakes while he was following you closely? Do you realize what kind of danger you put yourself in and the guy behind you? The SMART thing to do is get away from him and let him go and be an idiot somewhere else. You could have injured yourself, recked your car and your wife could have been injured as well. Grow up.

Kevdog did state that it wasn't the sane thing to do...<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>(I was pissed and not exactly rational ) <hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=1 id=quote>

Not only once, but twice. That is taking responsibility. Yeah, it was dangerous and not too rational, but at least he can admit it.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

So would stopping at the next light getting out of your car, and bashing the guy's windows in with a baseball bat fall under irrational thinking??? Hehehe...

jrh382: I defintely wasn't <b>that</b> close. I would never put me or my wife in danger. I was also watching the mirror to see that he braked (with the revs still high to pull away if he didn't). I may have been pissed, but I'm not insane.

JGraham9382: That's what I wanted to do <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle> but figured what I did was the much safer and saner thing to do <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>.

kevdog..

Lets just say you did this in my area....You have a good chance of someone taking a gun out and pulling the trigger because you never know how crazy some people are. Some guy was in an accident with an older woman and dog. The guy got so pissed, he took the dog and threw it out into oncoming traffic and it was killed. Thats how nuts people are around here. No offense to you or anything, we all have rage within us, but we should all try to control it. We don't know if they other guy has a gun or not...eventhough he is dead wrong

jrh382:

Point taken.... unlikely in my area I think, but you can never tell what people will do these days.

(I heard about the dog incident, didn't the judge give that guy like 7 years in jail? The max he could give)
