good story doc. While I do get worked up a few times for road rage, I am not a very confrontational person. The most that I do is get a little close then ghost someone, blocking them in their lane for a while. Sometimes I will just repay the favor to them.



A few years back I was going down 58 in VA with my now wife. She was in her mustang GT and I was in my GTI. We were both on our way down to Tyndall AFB for a tdy, I was packing, and we both had walkie talkies. Needless to say we where cruising around 65 in a 55 when two db's came up @ around 100mph in a ford taurus and almost rear ended my wife while we where passing some trucks. She got all scared, I just told her to stay in her lane. once we cleared the trucks I got over in the slow lane (2 lanes west bound) and left just enough room for them to get by. Once they got in my lane I slowed down, then they got in her lane so I sped up. We did this for a good 15 miles. These two ******s where getting so mad.

There was one spot through some rolling hills that I knew cops always liked to hang out and catch speeders right before you got to I-95, so I let them go and they sped off. Sucked though because there where no cops that time. But once we got to one of the stop lights in town, the dude flipped me off. So we kindly got in front of them again. the 95 onramp was a cloverleaf design with a very small straight section to get up to speed before the next off ramp . Traffic was moving @ around 80mph so with a GTI and rustang GT we hit the onramp at 15mph and did not accelerate until the last minute to merge into traffic. The last I saw was the taurus not making the onramp and and sliding down the muddy grass because he could not get up to speed and was going to fast to make the off ramp.

the moral of the story, some people do not get mad when you are an arse, they just give you payback nice and slow and enjoy every minute of it

Like I said, WYT HOT is the only time in memory I can remember a person actually pissing me off! The fact he forced me into the median when there was not another single vehicle on the freeway... It was completely intentional or the guy is just that much of an a s shole. I'm just glad his license plate is so easy to remember! I'll make sure to leave a note...

Other then WYT HOT if I know someone is pissed at me or driving like a ****** similar to the above I'll just go out of my way to annoy them even more and have my fun with it. I'm never in enough of a hurry to care...

So the parents roll into town today! House projects begin! Figures too that my non-existent roomie that has basically paid me for storage for the last 5 months has a blow up with her dude she's been shacked up with over the weekend and moves back into the house while the bathroom is still in pieces. LOL Sharing a bathroom is kinda odd cause it's been a long time since I have!

I used to scree with people (purposely not letting them pass, brake checks, etc) but obviously you never know when you'll get some.psycho like I did...or somebody even crazier that would actually raise a hand or a bat or something.

Obviously I'm not just going to run away and avoid the guy but you never know how crazy they are. I stool my ground and stayed calm and just walked off.

I don't want to sound like some tough Guy but like I said...had he made one wrong motion or had he actually threatened me to my face (threats were on the voicemail that I didn't hear until after) he probably would have had the opportunity to inspect the business end of my .45

I've had people literally try to kill me and I didn't take it that personally. Seriously, dudes. Unless there was contact made, no need to keep yourself angry for miles and minutes.

Not an issue at all. The drywall that is cut out right now is MINIMAL to what it's going to look like probably by this weekend trust me! Put it this way, at some point in the next couple days, the wood frame inside the walls all the way around the shower is probably going to be visible and I'm also most likely going to be replacing that entire area around where the leak was also while we're at it. The bathroom is going to look substantially different then it did a couple weeks ago very soon.

Funny, I just stumbled on this picture... This is the backside of the wall we were staring at a few years back. (Master bath) LOL



And since pucks the only one that's been in my shower!!!

Here's what that hole turned into...



Here's another good one... This is before and afters taken from the same spot basically...



Yes, the wall disappeared!!!




The water leak I was dealing with was behind the wall directly behind that vanity.

Sexy 70's style!!!









And to cap it off, here's my 2 favorite before and afters of the house. Me and my parents did the whole remodel. My uncle did all the wood work...





And the kitchen area. Yes, I'm a single dude, who needs a fricken dining room table???

Had he actually followed me to the store I wouldn't have gotten out of my truck and would have called. I didn't know he was there until I walked out the door.

I'm not angry at all. My life is no different then it was a week ago. But if you're going to virtually force someone into a wall at 60mph rather then simply changing lanes like anyone else would've done and you're dumb enough to have a easily remembered custom plate on a very easy to spot again vehicle, then I'll go ahead and chock that one up in the memory bank for down the line in case the opportunity ever presents itself. If the dude had been driving a white honda accord with a generic plate he'd have been long forgotten but just as I remember the badass grey F150 prerunner with the linked rear suspension and sweet aluminum tin work in the bed that I see occasionally around my work cause it stands out, I will now also remember the white standard cab dodge with the matching shell, large as blinged out dub rims and a badass license plate. LOL simple as that...

Surriusly right? Like that guy has never accidently cut somebody off before or done anything stupid in traffic ever in his whole life.

Trust me I am laughing too. This is the last thing I would have thought when I picked that little sucker up from the pound. I was entertaining a custom job on this as well but it made the wife happy.

Wait, you actually had it cremated? How long did you have that? I always thought guinea pigs were disposable like fish. Harder to flush, but same type funeral.
