Idiot in a Durango...
So there we were, on our way home from SC. Heading down 210 just outside Ft. Bragg, cruise set at 65, and I roll by a red Durango. Not 10 seconds later, I hear pipes and the Durango flys by me and slows about two car lengths up. I roll by again, and the idiot flys by again. The third time, as he draws abreast he guns it a couple times, does his little gay flyby, and drops back again. At this point, I signal and get into the left lane, and then get into the left-turn lane to go to the house. I look over to my right and see the idiot hard-stop next to me, and through my tint and his tint I can barely make out the oval of face and brim of trucker-hat staring at me...and I do mean STARING! At this point, with my family in the car, I am doing the quick check of the XD45 on my belt, 'cause I am starting to get a little nervous, as well as annoyed at this point.
Now, the turn lane that I am in goes into the road down to the house. The turn lane the idiot is in goes onto the same road, but once you make the left onto the road, it becomes a right-turn only, so I KNOW what he is going to try...
So, as soon as the light turns green and I hit the straight after the turn, foot meets floor. We were even until I hit second, at which point I started pulling on him by half a length...then a length when I hit third...and then he had to back off as the end of his lane was forthcoming...so he tucks in behind me, amazingly enough at a reasonable interval and not right on my ass like I anticipated...and as soon as oncoming traffic provides him room, I again hear pipes and he flys on by, narrowly missing a front-end collision with oncoming traffic!
Why do people persist in trying me? For the love of whatever, it is a four-door family car!
Although I bet he heard no end of crap from his friends for being spanked my a family car! :icon_cool
