    less grip also might help a few people. maybe use a couple of fingers instead of the whole hand.

    its a sign that your doing what you should do which is hold up all 4 wheelers lol just kidding. take it with a grain of salt. if thats all that happens to you youre lucky, keep rolling and dont let a 4 wheeler ruin your day or career by reacting stupidly.

    I tell you what...the AFB driver had a right to flip you off I would of flipped you off you messed up....now the mustang....keep in mind their speed limit is 65 or 70 depending were you at yours probably not even close to that you pulled out in front too quick and you got that degrading finger again....just learn from it man no big deal. I'v gotten 2 fingers I deserved for pulling that stunt and in one of those the wife and husband were both flipping me off and screaming so yea I felt bad but oh well thats how we learn. Keep in mind that 4 wheelers are driven by people also and you never know who its is, might be an off duty cop, or a undercover trooper and that = pulled over. Just be more careful dude you are the one in charge of the "beast"

    Water balloons?

    I guess that would be called a pee balloon though.

    Don't throw anything at anyone. I know somebody who hurled his pee bottle at someone. He was tracked down by the LEOs and lost his job over it.

    You really need to work on this.

    Don't let impatient fourwheelers push your buttons. You have to lose all sense of being wronged or wanting vengence, etc.

    If you are driving the way you're supposed to as in allowing proper following distance, driving the speed limit and allowing adequate space when passing before you move over you will undoubtedly piss a lot of people off. That's just tough doo-doo for them, don't let it bother you in the least.

    There's a saying in trucking that is "don't let anyone else drive your truck." The translation is that you are the professional and you need to be disciplined enough to drive in a safe professional manner. When you speed cause someone is tailgating you or move over before you know you should because the cars are lined up behind you, then you are allowing others to influence your decisions and are compromising standards in an effort to please them.

    Drivers of cars don't understand the performance and physical limitations of large heavy trucks. They think you should speed up, pass and get over so they can get by you and get on their merry way. Forget about what they want or expect. Worrying about pleasing them will only get you in trouble or give you an ulcer.

    There was the time in Ohio in early February a couple of years ago, when someone just wouldn't pass me all the way. They would creep up my left side to just behind the tractor and then slack off. Mile after mile and they wouldn't complete the pass. To top it off, their brights were blasting my mirror.

    It was night time, close to 12 degrees out. I spit my gum out the window. I think it landed on the windshield. I heard it hit and then they completed the pass and all I saw was tail lights. I never saw them again.

    I get flipped off all the time, usually it rolls down my back no biggie. A couple of weeks ago a guy cut me off then slammed on his brakes to turn with no signal, i hit the city horn just to let him know he was an idiot and he flips me the bird, needless to say my truck came to a complete stop and i let him know how i felt about him and asked if he wanted me to get out of my truck...I got a pretty good ear beating over that one from the boss when he called in because i scared his little kids in the car.
