A while back I remember reading a thread on here about how when a cager cuts us off, or changes lanes into ours, how common it is for us to set out for revenge like "the stare", "the finger", etc, and how that become dangerous for us because now we're distracted.
(I have a harley friend that carries marbles in his top pocket ready to launch at windshields, or hes been known to beat on the drivers window with his fist or kicks the door - YES, WHILE GOING DOWN THE FREEWAY, doesn't matter to him, if you pissed him off, he'll let you know)
2 weeks ago, on a sunday, 2 of us were on the Freeway in Orange County, riding in the #2 lane with all other cars around us in all the other lanes going about the same speed (no one was changing lanes, etc).
Getting ready to slowly pass a ford mini van in the #3 lane when all of a sudden without signal or anything they moved right in my lane to where I had to hit the brakes really fast. I immediately thought of that thread and my harley friend and was glad I was in such a mellow and relaxed mood cuz I just let it go.
Turns out that same van got off at the same exit and I thought what they heck, if the windows down, I'm saying something. I stopped along side and yelled, "HEY, DID YOU KNOW YOU ALMOST HIT ME BACK THERE"? She looked like she could give a rats ass and said "NO SIR I DIDN'T" I said, "THAT'S BECAUSE YOU WEREN'T LOOKING, LOOK AROUND, USE YOUR SIGNALS"
That was better than marbles, right?
