    So, while hurtling through space up I-495 on my way from Cape Cod to the Mass Pike, fighting wind and rain, I notice this WEIRDO who decided to scare the shit out of me by driving along side of me, and staring in my window. I got away from him, he would catch up, and when I slowed down, he would slow down. I finally had to show him my phone to let him know would call the police to make him go away.:evil:

    Was that just some random shit, or does this happen to lone female drivers a lot these days? :eusa_eh:Its been a while since I drove any long distance without at least one of my kids in the car, but I used to take long road trips alone all the time and that never happened. :doubt:

    Probably 18 years ago some guy apparently took issue with me not getting out of the fast lane fast enough to suit him started playing "games" with me for the next 25 miles till I FINALLY saw a cop on the west bound side. This was on I-66, he would get behind me and tail gate, get in front of me and slow down and drive next to me yelling like a mad man or just glare at me. when I saw the cop I pointed so the idiot could see him also and took the next exit, the nut sped up and kept going on down the road.

    It's not a new game. Thank the Lord it's never happened to me, but you hear about stuff like this all the time. Glad you got out of the situation safely.

    That's the road rager, they can be scary too. :eek:

    This one wasn't pissed off, had kind of a blank look to him...not yelling or shaking his fist, but he wanted me to know he was there and didn't plan to go away. He went away. :evil:

    That had to be fuckin scary. I am glad my state has the carry concealed law. We have a lot less road rage now, (I realize rage was not the case here).

    I was kinda thinking it'd be handy to have one of those. I like knives mind you, but a gun would work better in that situation.

    Or you could have quickly turned your wheel to the left and run him off the road.

    That would have schooled his ass.

    So you can hide a firearm and suprise someone with it, or everyone just assumes anyone else could be armed and leaves each other alone? :cool:

    He looked scared enough about the phone. Probably thought I was taking his picture :lol:
