thumbs down

So I'm driving home and there's a cobalt ss s/c in the fast lane about a car length behind me and a truck hauling a pair of horses in front of me and I didn't wanna get stuck behind the horses so I downshifted and got in front of the cobalt then got back over after I passed the horses. The guy in the cobalt goes next to me and gives me a thumbs down..wtf I was just trying to pass. Its not like I cut him off or anything. Douche.

maybe to him it seems like you did cut him off. Like the internet, our intentions are not communicated well. What some might see a car just changing lanes, he might see you saying %$#@ you I'm getting in front of you, or I have to be ahead of you. Sad but I do see this happen. Sometimes I swear a car is intentionally getting in my way when I look and see it's just another dumb driver not paying attention to any other cars around them. Happens all the time.

some people are just mad at the world for the littlest things, such as passing in front of a person to not get stuck behind something they wouldn't want to get stuck behind if they were you.

Unfortunately most people in America today have bad self images because they base it on the wrong things.
This story is a good example of that.
When people get mad over things that are small and don't really matter, that reveals a lot about them.

Did you do everything correctly?

So let me ask you this, did you signal a lane change and allow enough room for your maneuver? Or did you just down shift, dart in front of the Cobalt and then back in formt of the truck? If you're a driver with a conscience you would not have put the horses in the trailer, the truck driver or the Cobalt at risk with your wild driving. Think about that.
