wtf is wrong with people?

Ok, this is a rant, straight up. Just a precurser warning. So, either read it or don't.

This all happened within about 2 minutes or so. I was driving to school and came up on this early to mid 90's, lowered, flat black, wide-bodied, civic hatchback, cheesy roll cage and huge tach included. I was going a tad bit faster than him, maybe 2-3 miles an hour. You know, just enough to think passing slowly is ok knowing that no one is behind us nor is anyone in front. I'm thinking, no big deal, just go around.

Anyway, I get into the next lane, and he speeds up...ok, whatever, just get back over into the slow lane. In a couple of seconds, I catch back up...please note, I haven't changed speed at all, and I figure I'll try again...he speeds up again. Ok, again, whatever, just get back over. This happens a total of 3 times. On the fourth time, I'm getting a little pissed, sure as shit, he looks over and smirks with a "I'm better than you" nod...I'm sure you know the look and nod I'm talkin' about. By this point, I'm not thinking of racing, but merely passing this mother fg a-hole. I downshift and gun it...by this time he's also downshifted and gunned it out of spite and pulls for about 2 seconds before I make him look like douche bag.

The funny thing is we both go to the same school. I see his car in the parking lot all the time. Anyway, he follows me to school, but never "catches up," not even at the stop lights and keeps quite a distance between us.

My car looks stock: wheels, bumpers, hood, nearly everything looks stock other than the tip of my exhaust which he couldn't even see until I passed him. Plus, I'm running winter tires. I mean, hellooo? wtf? I wasn't provoking him or antagonizing him in any way that I could tell. I'm kinda pissed that he would even pick on what he thought was a stock focus.

I love my semi-mini-sleeper.

End rant. Thanks for reading my nonsense.

Jeff

Nope, can't say that I have played those...I'm guessing you meant halo for "haol." I'm a starving college student with a family to boot. I want money to burn...hehe

I do wonder though, what he was feeling internally after that though...you know, to have a focus put the smack down. And not by any means, do I have a bad ass focus or anything, but he must've felt like shit.

I hate it when that happens, it seems that people just cant stand getting passed by someone who is going faster than them. You know the stereotypical Honda driving teenager though, they think they are hott shit and have to race everything they come into contact with.

I had a pimped out Neon that just HAD to be ahead of me today. I just "waved" him on. I guess now that I'm in my 40's that I really don't have anything to prove to punk-assed kids in their so-called "hot" cars.
