Have you ever gotten road rage while driving and given the one finger salute to someone?
Someone got mad at me yesterday and flipped me the bird, i just blew them a kiss and winked ;D
Smiling and giving them a friendly wave pisses them of more.
Knee jerk reaction
But I regretted it, because I realized it made me into a stupid jerk.
More like Road Frustration.
Never thought it would make the situation better. I'm much more likely to get past someone and leave them far behind me. Much less chance they can affect me that way.
Gender filter is interesting. I thought it would be the opposite...
I typically give them the stare down as I pass. Then disapprovingly shake my head
Oh yeah. I always feel bad, but I flash my lights instead of tailgating people in the left lane. So purposefully slowing down gets infinite negative words and the finger.
Nope, but I have gotten the finger.
Road rage, yes.
Flipped the finger, no. I was too afraid it would start something.
