In this post, I am referring to the kind in definition # 2 above!
Well, I ran into (figuratively) one of them yesterday. Rather it almost ran into (literally) me.
Here is what happened :
So, yesterday morning, I am headed to work. At the intersection of Cimmaron and MacArthur, I am stopped behind 2 cars in the left turn / straight lane. The right lane is a Right Only lane at this intersection. Once the light turns green, I start rolling and so do the other cars, and I hear someone honk.
Well, I usually ignore honks.
Next this guy in a Lexus (I thought it was a Jeep at first) cuts me off from the right lane and travels 100 feel ahead of me, all that just to pull into the parking lot on the left, by the Irving Public Library.
Normally, I would say "Heck with it" and move on but this morning I was particularly tired and didn't feel like putting up the rudeness (I thought it was).
So, I rode up to about 50 feet from where this "gent" was parked and took a picture of him and his car.
All I really wanted to do at this point was to take a picture of his vehicle so as to let him know I am not taking his balderdash lightly.
So, the professionally dressed jerk goes, "Why are you taking a picture of my car?".
I am not good at altercations and hoping he would not ask anything more, I simply reply, "I wasn't taking a picture of your car...".
Then, he goes, "I am just curious. What were you taking a picture of?".
I say, "None of your business. It is a free country. BTW, you cut me off at the intersection".
He tries to justify it by saying, "I did not cut you off! I was driving properly". I said, "Yeah, Right", and moved on.
What an ass!
I am sure y'all have come across these types and I am looking for y'all wisdom :)
1. Did I break the law by taking a picture of this jerk?
2. Should I mace these jerks next time? (J/K).
Suggestions please, my comrades!
Thanks a bunch in advance!!
Peace (I mean it but I too get worked up at times).
