This morning I had dropped my son off at his bus stop and had started heading down the short stretch of road between his stop and the end of the road- I had started accelerating and this guy decided to go around me.
This is a rural dirt road, and a very short stretch of it- and I have no idea why he thought he should go around me when I was MOVING. Plus it is a narrow road- and it was still dark and I was still waking up- and it just wigged me out- because I was moving, he was moving and he was trying to pass me for no reason, other than getting to the stop sign first.
So I laid on the horn- to express my frustration with his choice to cut me off on a short stretch of road for no reason. And he slams on his brakes in front of me- and started to get out of his car! I drove around him- and left.
I was really shaken up! He chose to pass me for no reason other than I was moving slowly after dropping Braden off- but this is a 25 mile an hour road anyway- I was hardly blocking him- then he puts the squeeze on me, so I honk at him and he decides to almost cause an accident rather than just driving- he had managed to cut me off anyway- so why not!
NO, instead he tries to stop me and have some sort of confrontation on the road- no thanks.
Upon reflection I wish I had just let him pass- and not expressed my frustration and worry by honking at him- because he lives in our neighborhood and I would not want to be hassled by him in the future. GAH!
But wow- I was freaked out- and angry that he was so impatient that he would block the entire road just to get in front of me. Had I been sitting still I would have understood him passing me, FINE, but I was in motion- and he clearly expected me to stop again to let him by-
