Instant CARma is gunna get you...

So it's 5:15am this morning driving to work, I'm taking my time, cruising at or just above the speedlimit on the two lane per direction interstate. I stay in the slow lane because I'm not an asshat, and only move over to pass slow moving traffic when it's all clear for plenty of time to not interfere too badly with anyone else's travels.

Anyway. So I've got my cruise set. I come up to a semi that's running about 5mph less than me, I check the mirrors, no one in sight for 200yds+, just some headlights WAYYYY back. Blinker, and begin my crawl past.

These lights are coming up fairly quickly, the guy is probably cruising about 20-25mph over the speedlimit in what I later find out is a new silver Kia Optima. He proceeds to run me down as I get to the driver's door of the rig, and gets so close behind me that I can't see his headlights at all. I do what any normal driver would do. I turn off my cruise and coast down a few mph. He gets closer, so I tap my brake lightly just to turn on the lights, not affecting speed, but warning the guy that he's playing a very very bad game.

Enraged, the guy zooms around me in the emergency lane, and slams on the brakes once in front of me. Expecting this, I've already gotten behind the semi, using him as a post-man for this stupidity.

So the Optima, now totally pissed off, zooms away and not 100 yards later, BOOOOOM! He runs slap over the plastic bedliner that some unfortunate Texan truck owner lost on the highway.

I can't say I have ever felt more fulfilled in my life.

TL:DR - Korean car owner gets a big F U from some higher power in the universe for being a dillhole. Read it for more info.
