Today, while on a short road trip to look at a used car, I drove through a small town near the Idaho border. The wife and I decided to stop at the local ACE hardware, so we drove there as well. Since every ACE hardware has a different paint department with different equipment and apparently no employee ever read the instructions, they all make different colored paint. We decided to skip it and go to the original ACE which is closer to our house, instead of pulling in, I made a turn into the entrance of the store, paused and checked then pulled back into traffic. This was a four lane highway(with center turn lane) back the way we came. 400 yards down the road in a red truck was what turned out to be a crazy old man with serious mental health and direction issues. This winner was in the left lane going 35mph, some demented old geezer who probably moved up from California last fall and wanted to be my new best friend. He sped up pulled beside me and layed on the horn while he shook his fist screaming about something. He swerved into my lane and tried to hit me or cut me off and was in a blind rage. I flipped him off and then he slammed on the brakes and pulled behind me. Apparently, having made a quasi U-turn hundreds of yards in front of him and not into his lane of travel was upsetting him something fierce. After following me around for a couple of minutes I pulled into a parking lot and drove him around in circles as he screamed out the window and into his cell phone at me and/or about me. I finally stopped and told him to F-off and stop following me. He went on about, how U-turns were illegal in Idaho, I cut him off and he was on the phone to the Idaho highway patrol and they were going ot come arrest me for making a U-turn. We were not in Idaho, still a mile away and we were actually in the middle of a town in Washington state. I told him to choke on a dick and headed for home. Now if he kept following me, I was going to stop at the police station and let them handle the demented old geezer. It was all of three blocks away. Instead he sat in the parking lot screaming into the phone and that was the last of him. I had a witness to the entire show, my wife had the day off as well and was sitting there quietly watching the show. This is not the first crazy ranting idiot I have ran across over the years. Having to drive for work, I get to meet them often, sometimes far too often. They never know the traffic laws, much less follow them. They always manage to drive to slow in the left lane or to fast in the right, never use blinkers and rarely stop for signs or lights. Worst of all, they really think they own the roads, not just their lane, but all lanes. Is it just me or is this crap getting worse? Spokane added a few traffic circles and I hear people complain all the time about how hard they are to drive through. It's a traffic circle, it is not like they had to figure out the area of a triangle in order to pull out. ? I occasionally drive a ten ton truck, when these idiots try and merge they pull right under the hood so close you cannot see them. Apparently, they do not understand the truck won't stop until it is on top of their car. I've watched more than a few nearly merge with my right front tire, which is as tall as the car they are driving. Very few of them even bother to look where they are going. Did anyone ever actually read that driver's book they give you before you take the driver's test? It has a lot of really useful information in it.
