    On my way to work this morning, I came upon a lenth of street that goes by a school. There is no school in session now, and hasn't been for almost a month. No kids, no people, no nothing. All closed. BUT, at the far end of the playground, all fenced, this street goes by, and there is a blinking yellow light that says, "15 mph when light is flashing", of which I have a huge problem with. The light is a warning light to go 15 mph when THE SCHOOL IS IN SESSION, AND THERE ARE KIDS AROUND, but there's NOTHING, and as I say, HASN'T been. In any case, there was a car in front of me, and as I was doing 25 mph catching up to it, because she was doing 15, as she saw me approach, she stuck her big, fat arm out the window along with her big, fat head, and howled at me to slow down. I thought nothing of it. I passed her and was going to ignore her. At the stop light which isn't far up from this stretch of road, she pulled up beside me and stuck her big fat ugly head out the window and started bitching at me AGAIN! I had my windows up and the air on, and was GOING to try and ignore her, but with her actions, I decided to say something, so I rolled down my passenger window and said, "lady, do you see any kids"? "NO, you don't, because there isn't any school you moron", and rolled my window back up.

    Now in my opinion, she harrassed me TWICE! I could have been a road rager and pulled out a pistol and blew her face off for fucking with me. Second, she wasn't driving a squad car and wasn't a cop, so it wasn't her fucking job to admonish me in any shape, way or form. She got what she asked for by sticking her big, fat, ugly head out the window and fucking with a complete stranger TWICE, who would have ignored her if she'd have just let it go.

    Now, who's in the right here? I welcome any responses. You won't hurt my feelings if you tell me I was wrong. Please just do it in a decent manner.

    Lemme guess- was she in a minivan?

    (Pet peeve of mine. Don't lose weight- just by a bigger car to fit your big butt in. Apologies to those of you who actually have several kids and actually have a good reason to buy a minivan).

    Nah, you got it right...if she was too stupid to realize the lower speed light was not supposed to be flashing since school is out, she deserved a telling off.

    She was in a green Jeep Grand Cherokee.

    I just felt that she was a huge busy body. It wasn't and isn't her place to tell me how to drive or what signs to follow. If she wants to drive around policing how people drive, then go to fucking police school and be cop, otherwise keep your fucking mouth shut, or CALL the police.

    She provoked you and how you responded wasn't out of line. Continuing to ignore her would have been good too.

    She was out of line. I think you showed great restraint.

    You want to hear the kicker? When I got to work, I got called on the carpet and BITCHED at for calling her a moron... "because I had my work shirt on". She had called there and complained to my boss, whom told me that anywhere, anytime, I had to conduct myself in a professional manner as long as I had my work shirt on. I told him that what I do on my own time is none of the companies damn business, and that from now on I won't be wearing the damn shirt either to or from work.

    I was so pissed. It ate at me all day, and I went home early.

    That happened to my ex all the time with one specific company he worked for. Luckily is boss understood, having drove a truck himself for more years than he can probably remember.
