    This happened to me in the late seventies. I was driving on a country road in Kentucky. Two men were driving behind me, they would speed up and almost bump my car, then slow down and do it again, they did this several times. I didn't have a cell phone back then, and I was really scared. I finally came to a busy highway and they turned away. Today people are doing drive-by shootings and road rage is rampant. Thank goodness we now have cell phones....

      None of us had cell phones back then!  Shucks, Ruby girl.....those two guys were probably chasing a young sexy blonde to get your attention!!  Can you help it if men go nuts when they see you??! 
      (The truth is, they were a couple of jerks!)

    I haven't had any "abnormal" experiences with road rage. Just typical cutting off and flipping off sort of things. But my dad once had a half-eaten hamburger thrown at his windshield. He yelled back at the guy, "Thanks for lunch!" to let him know his rage didn't bother him much. LOL

    On an unrelated note, when we were looking to move, I called a number on a sign by the road about a home for sale and she cussed me up and down and said she didn't have a damn thing for sale. I told her thanks for the cussing before hanging up and then laughed. I would've offered to pull the sign, but I figure she deserves several hundred more inquiries.

    A few months ago, as I was exiting the freeway and driving up the ramp, a man started gesturing at me wildly. I rolled down the window, in case he had something important to say---I mean, who knows----I might have had a flat tire… But anyway, he yelled, “You should learn how to drive, lady.” I was puzzled because I didn’t know what I had done wrong. Probably, he had been in my blind spot and I guess I might have moved to the same lane he was moving to…?? Honestly, I didn’t know what he was talking about----so I rolled the window back up and went about my business.
    Long story short, I don’t waste my time on road rage. Road rage is for crazy people. Lol.

      That's a spooky experience!  I swear that some crazies drive around just looking for people to bully & harass! It's a hobby to them because they haven't the brains to do anything productive! I ignore them too, or worse, I smile & wave! LOL

      Well, who knows. Maybe I did something wrong. Probably instead of yelling, they should say what happened. That would at least be more educational. Ha!

      He should not need to rant at U~~pay attention 2 his own driving & realize there R no perfect drivers. Doing what he did is more apt 2 cause an accident than whatever U may or may not have done. When on the road, calm & patience is a must.

      That's true. He was being a meanie. But I figure that's his problem and not mine. wink
