Unhappy how do i DEAL with this?!

well, here's a little story i thought i'd share to my fellow SVTer's out there...sit down, and grab a bowl a popcorn...maybe someone out there can tell me how to cope with this traumatic experience...

well, one day, on my way back from a friend's house, i pull up next to this red focus sitting at a stop light. it's alright, i's red, a ZX3; an old asian man is driving it. "cool man," i thought to myself. well, we're sitting there, and all of a sudden, he REVS on me. "hrm...a mistake?" i think to myself...not likely. he does it again. i glance over at him, and notice is is mockingly staring at me back. "wutthe...?" well...i didnt think much of it...maybe he's just looking at my car too...

...wishful thinking...

well, the light turns green, and he takes off in a cloud of smoke. "WOW," i yelled, and being the dumb teenager i am, i take off as well. "it's just a regular ZX3," i said to myself. "it's no problem." well, i finally catch up to the old man...and i notice something quite odd...

...he was WAITING for me...

"huh?!" i couldnt help but wonder..."wat was this guy THINKING?!" then, the impossible became possible. he glanced over at me, and gave me a look that your elders give u when u try ur best at something, but fail miserably. it's that look of " cute. u tried, but u failed. THIS is how it's done..." ya, u know the look. it was THAT kind of look. and then...

...he pulled on me...

...and in a matter of seconds, he was gone. now, dont get me wrong; i'm not the best driver in the world, nor am i a pushover: i have wat it takes to hold my own. but to be beaten by man who was old enough to be my grandfather in a car that was basemodel next to my SVT...i was in complete shock. i pulled over to the side of the road and just sat there. a whole half hour. to some, people may say, "eh, it's no biggie..." but to ME, it's a whole different confidence in myself and my car was shot to shit.

the end

...hahaha, ok ok, u can all stop ur laughing now. seriously, i've never been soo....i dunno, HUMILATED before!!! maybe his car was just more modified than mine was? i have a K/N typhoon system, new spark plugs, wires, new ignition system and a diable sport chip with h/r springs. i dunno...maybe it's just me...maybe i need more? how do i deal with this trauma?!?! i think i need a shrink....
