I am so pissed off right now. Last night when I was coming home, I was merging onto the interstate, there was heavy traffic so I had to merge in and out of lanes to get over once my exit was coming up in a little while. I went to merge into the right lane and some a**hole blows his horn because I cut him off. I get over anyway in front of him and he keeps on blowing his horn and flashing his headlights on and off, apparently he was still angry because I cut him off. I was trying to not let him get to me, but after about 5 minutes of this, I started to get pissed off and just decided to get over into another lane. When I moved into the other lane he rolls up beside me and puts up his middle finger. He was in a Surburban and had his family with him and they were all giving me dirty looks and giving the finger. One of his kids tried to spit on my vehicle, but could not make it reach. Next thing I know, I hear a loud shatter come from my back window. I look back and the window is completly shattered all over the back seat. One of his kids threw a large rock at my car and broke my window. I was absolutely beyond angry at this point. They then switched lanes and got behind me and followed me into a gas station when I exited. I decided to use my cell phone to call the police, but while I was on the phone, they all got out and came to my car. They began scratching and kicking it and rocking it from side to side. I took my car keys out of the ignition and pressed the red panic button on my keypad and the horn on my car began to blow and my lights started flashing. This got the attention of a few people at the gas station and they ran to help me. The family who was harrasing me ran and got back into their car and left when they the people coming to help me. I drove back home after that without meeting up with them again. My brand new 2008 Nissan Armada LE is finished. It is all scratched up, the window in the back is broken, and it has dents everywhere. I brought it to Nissan today to get an estimate and called my insurance company. My insurance company will pay for everything. Don't you think road rage has gone to far these days? What the hek is wrong with today's drivers?

There are people on this planet who simply should not be allowed to propagate.

You just ran a group of them.

I hope you got names and phone numbers of the witnesses at the gas station as well as the license number of the idiot and his brood of imbeciles.

Must be something in the air: I had a moron pull out from the left right in front of me last night. I had no where to go except the right lane. I was coming up on a left turn so I pulled over in front of him, turned on my blinker, and stopped to wait for traffic. The dumba** turns on his high beams and sits behind me honking. I let a couple of chances to turn go by. I even started to turn once and stopped. I love to tease the subhumans among us.

Here's someone who isn't smart enough to either look at the road and see there is no one behind me so all he had to was wait 5 seconds instead of almost getting hit, then can't figure out he could just change lanes and go around me when I got to my turn. No, it's my fault for having to swerve around him instead of ramming his car, then taking the turn coming up.

I was actually hoping he would follow me into the parking lot.

Thats horribly bad, really it is. Ever thought about carrying a Thompson submachine gun in the car? That would scatter those redneck vermin real fast. In all seriousness, I hope you got their plate #, etc. Either that or have a ET come out and fingerprint the car. What they did was criminal and I hope they get fined or jail time for that. Thats ridiculous. One things for sure, had they tried that with me, one of them would have been seriously hurt, whether they got me in a rush or not. lol

I really feel for you. I'd have been a jibbering wreck if that had happened to me.

I know exactly what you mean about the road-rage culture nowadays. I'm learning to drive at the moment and you wouldn't believe the number of people who I get tailgating me, even when I'm driving at the posted limit (and despite the learner stickers on my car). It doesn't bother me too much but it is really aggressive and feels quite threatening. I think society as a whole has become more impatient in the last few decades.

That's bad...I've been having some weird people getting crazy with me...Speeding up behind me and trying to change lanes at the last minute as they almost hit my rear 1/4 panel. This is as I am signaling and switching lanes to the lane they want. One guy stopped and tried to run me off the road. He then got in front of me and slammed his brakes to 40mph in a 65 zone and then got on the side to run me off again and then tried to get behind me or something but I put my hazards on and started going 25 in a 65mph on the freeway. I called the cops but got the answering machine....gotta love Los Angeles. He was a BIG gangbanger looking mexican dude. And I had my car for a month and did NOT want him to mess with it. He finally sped off. It lasted a good 3-4 miles. Which felt like 5 mins.

Hope someone managed to get the plates down.
