    So I’m coming down a hill to an intersection where I take a right turn, well there’s a stoplight there and it turns green, but in the oncoming lanes theres a pickup truck in the left turning lane trying to turn left so essentially we would be on the same road. Well he starts trying to make his turn and I'm thinking what the hell is this guy doing, once he sees that I'm not slowing down he stops and I make my turn, than he guns it to pass me to give me the middle finger. I mean are these people just gone to #### ####ed in the head ####### or what. I wanted to stop and bash his head in. I got the green light I have the right of way, so you’re gonna flip me of because of that because I didn’t stop to let you go when I had a green light to go?!?! Trash human piece of ####

    You gotta shake it off, you can’t let jerks get to you, because there are way too many of them out there, and life is too short to be angry all the time!

    I just smile and keep driving. Not letting something so simple get under my skin.

    Just be glad that's all he did. Lots of road rage incidents now involve shootings.
