Hi all:

I am new to the forums --- just decided to register as I came across the webpage.

Quick and honest question: How many of you here have been involved in some sort of physical or verbal altercation with a complete stranger -- be it in traffic or at some other point in your daily lives? It seems as if it is a common occurrence in this area.

Why are so many people in NoVa a bunch of Billy Badasses? Many people seem to have some big mouths on them...yet I've never seen anyone deliver.

Very strange first post. I've been here since 73 and I've found this area to be no different than other areas in the US.

I've never even seen a physical altercation around here. Heard a lot of honking horns though.

My girlfriend was tailgated on Loudoun County Parkway by some a-hole in a Honda Accord. He then proceeded to call her a "communist", and demanded that she "get out of the car and fight."

My girlfriend is 28 years old, and this guy was in his 50s.

Where's the fire?

Why the eff did he call her a communist???????? That is hysterical! If that happened to me I'd just thank him for the compliment. Just to tick them off even more! I seriously think you can see the breakdown in society just by how people drive. If someone is willing to be aggressive or break laws driving, what else are they willing to do? Also why would a man in his 50s pick a fight with a woman in her 20's? What a bully! Could she have taken him though? That would be funny!

When I had my FL plates on my car, a few months ago, I was driving down FFX Cty Parkway, I was stopped at the light at Rugby Road, this lady felt the need to roll down her passenger window and yell at me to "Go home you bleep bleep bleep!! Learn to drive!!"

I was so taken aback, because I was going the speed limit in the RIGHT LANE! I have never in my life had anyone do that to me. She didn't threaten me physically though.

Maybe she's related to your communist-accuser?

None that I can think of in the 18 years we've lived here.

Other than some random chick punching a friend of mine in the face at a bar in Clarendon, I have never seen physical violence out and about in this area. Aggressive driving, yes - but not violence.
