3 shut down on one stretch of road.

I was leaving from a shopping mall where a friend and I had seen a movie at the theater where he works. I got cut off turning right onto a main road by a young girl in a black grand am. I sped up to be right at her side, gave her a dirty look and then accelerated a bit. She tried to catch up but I didn't let her . She turned right onto another street at a light and I set my cruise control to 45, which was the speed limit . Then, I saw a big GMC Acadia trying to catch up to me, probably to give me the same dirty look for the same reason. They were 2-3 car lengths behind me on the left when I pushed the accelerate button on the cruise control and they shrank behind me. I was going 55 but letting friction slow me down when my friend noticed a saturn ion also trying to catch me. I waited, and as soon as they got close I floored it. In only a few seconds they were getting further and further away. I barely made a yellow left turn, and then parked in the parking lot of the Starbucks where my friend had his car. As I was getting out of my car I waved to the saturn which was driving down the street in front of the Starbucks, being glad that of three cars chasing me, none were a crown vic with it's lights flashing.

ummm.......ya, did you ever think that the other cars were just maybe... quite possibly were going 5 over the speed limit while you were doing the exact speed limit. I extremely doubt they were trying to catch up to you to give you a dirty look I feel dumber reading that as well.

I guess I deserve the criticism...
Yeah, now that I've read it, I don't know why I tried to make a stupid story interesting.
Late nights and boredom will get to you...

"cool story, bro" are the exact words I thought as soon as I read what I had posted. I couldn't find a way to delete it, but whatever. It's a little late now, isn't it?
I will say this in my defense, though: I was just messing around for the people in my car and probably wouldn't have been trying to go faster than anyone else if I was alone. Also, the saturn definitely did want to race.

It's the button with the ram logo in the center of the steering wheel. Touch it very gently and think really hard.
