I've got an epic traffic SS that my coworker (Kathy) shared with me.
Kathy, who is a very calm, cautious driver, leaves work and is driving down main road. This is a 3-lane in either direction road which has a lot of bus traffic. She always stays in the middle lane until a certain point because the bus always waits at the corner of side street. Once she passes side street, she pulls into the right lane to make her turn.
Once she makes the right turn, she realizes that there is another car, driven by some big guy, tailgating her so closely that she can only see part of its hood. She's starting to get nervous being followed so closely, but keeps going at a steady speed.
Then all of a sudden, the car behind her bumps her! Then it does it again! Clearly very deliberately
. Now she's terrified and doesn't know what to do. She's in a residential area, so she's pulls off to the side of the road and the guy passes her at. She follows along enough to read the plate number and make of car and then heads home.
She gets home shaking and calls the police to report what had happened and gives them the plate, car make, etc....
Well, an officer went to see the guy and reported back to Kathy. Mr. SS admitted to the police officer that, yes, he had bumped her car deliberately, but it was her fault, she cut him off. Apparently, Mr.SS was mad because he was stuck sitting behind that bus on main street and wanted to go around it, but no one was letting him in (I don't know if he had his turn signal on or not), including Kathy (who hadn't even noticed him), so to him, she "cut him off"
. So once he got around the bus, tailgating and bumping was his way of expressing his displeasure.
The officer asked Kathy if she wanted to press charges, but she said no. She was so rattled by the whole thing, she just couldn't bear seeing the idiot again. It makes me mad even thinking about it
