I Better Be Careful Who I Flip Off

I can be a very offensive driver. I get very frustrated with people that don't pay attention when they can turn at a light, their speed on the highway, when they take up two lanes on the road.

Yesterday I was pulling out of a shopping center onto a major 4 lane road. The woman in front of me missed 3 opporunities to TURN RIGHT! Turning right is not that difficult. As I'm getting frustrated, someone comes up behind me, and someone turns in from the road and starts beeping. I thought they were beeping at the person behind they knew them or something.

Meanwhile, I'm waving my arms up in the air, cursing the dumb ass in front of me.

Today, I go into work, and the receptionist was like, "You flipped me off yesterday"

Huh? Nah, not me!

She said yes, and asked me where I went yesterday.

Let's see, I went to Kohls, Ross, Goody's, Target...all on this road.

She said she saw me turning out of the Goody's shopping center, and I was turning out she was beeping at me and I flipped her off!

I certainly did not!! I was waving my arms around at the person in front of me.

She doesn't believe me. So I'll never live this down. I flipped off our receptionist! Just Great!

Beware any messages you may receive. Ooohhh, she may hold a grudge. You had better buy her some nice chocolates.

Haha, no, it's cool...we are friends! I guess I should have said that upfront. We just went out today a matter of fact. She knows she's my girl!

Should have asked "Were you driving like an idiot? No? Then I didn't flip you off. Unless you really WERE driving like an idiot in which case I probably did..." heheh

Wow, I never pictured you being so gesturely violent before.

I've flipped off my receptionist once or twice... Then I got sent to sensitivity class, now I just do it behind her back. :)

Discretion is the better part of bird-flipping :-)

Sissy - you have to be my long lost twin cause that is how I drive.

Lets just say I can make a Sailor blush when I am behind the wheel.

And don't get me started on asswipes that don't know what the $%^&(^% the center lane is for when making a left turn out of a drive.

Next time, DO flip her off. She owes you one.

Where I live, people have been shot and killed on major interstates for doing that. Since then, I I get the urge, I m ake sure my finger is below the dashboard. And I thought you Southerners were slow and relaxed drivers!

"And I thought you Southerners were slow and relaxed drivers!"


You've obviously not been to any of the UNofficial nonNASCAR events in America's Third World County™. Completely spontaneous events. In other parts of the country, it's inappropriately called "rush hour." Here? No one would DARE sloe things down to typical "rush hour" speed... unless they were counting cows. And folks who do that make sure they do it juuuuust over the hill or around a blind corner from onrushing (UNofficial UN-Nascar) "race car" drivers.
