Response to SWTORFanatic (Reply #139)

160. I have encountered such people ...

Once when my ex was driving she irritated another driver. She chased us down and proceeded to insult us and call us rednecks.

I laughed and explained that both of us were from Ohio. I also mentioned that if she actually looked at me she would realize that I lacked a tan. I worked graveyard shift and rarely went out in the sun as I slept during the daytime hours. I was basically a vampire not a redneck.

I suspect that this confused the hell out of her and the situation ended peacefully.

This was fortunate as both my wife and myself had training in jujitsu and had the angry woman attacked my ex, she would have regretted her decision. I would have been able to simply stand by and be a witness as my ex was quite capable of handling the assault.

I should add that despite the fact that we are divorced, my ex and myself are still friends.

It would be wise for any person who suffers from a road rage problem to seek help for anger management.

Basically a traffic incident no matter how serious does not warrant violence.
