The Bird

People who flick off other drivers on the road freak me out.

Really?  You are so furiously mad that you pulled up next to me and flicked me off?  That's your answer?

How mature.

Last night some guy cut me off getting on the highway - so I did what ADULTS do.

I sped around him, trapped him behind me with all other lanes congested with traffic and then drove 40 miles per hour down a busy highway with no way for him to get around.

For 20 minutes.

By the time there was a break in traffic and he was able to pass me, he was red in the face and screaming at the top of his lungs.

Then he flicked me off.

What a psycho.

I always thought it was flipped off. But I like flicked off it sounds like something someone would do to a booger.

My sons call it "throwing the bird".

When I'm having a road rage fit, I like to speed around someone, then go extremely slow, but then...and here is the kicker...make sure I tap, tap, tap my breaks, periodically breaking like a puppy has just run under my tires.

That always makes people really happy, and I am definitely one to spread some joy around this time of year.

This post made me SO happy.

My friends spent an entire night trying to tell me it was FLIP off and that FLICK off doesn't work unless I was talking about boogers.

But you're clearly an authority on this so I think this makes me right.

I am going to have a road rage confession on your blog. You know those douches who drive slow but decide to speed the hell up when I try to over take them? Yeah, they make me wish this was GTA2 where you have guns in your headlights. okay im done :)

flipping or flicking someone the bird always seemed so uncreative to me.
