One morning I had an extremely crazy ride in to work, its a long story..... first I was running late, was getting on the freeway at 8:07 when I should get on absolutely no later than 8:00 and yes those 7 minutes make or break me. Well, of course there was a big ole semi getting on the freeway in front of me and he took FOREVER to get up the on-ramp, so as soon as we were next to the freeway and I checked my rearview and zipped over, but unfortunately there was someone in my blind spot that I cut off, oops! now keep in mind that this is a 3 lane highway right here, semi in lane 1, me in the middle lane, and now extremely PO'ed guy in lane 3. he's driving a suzuki sidekick, probably early 90's, basically POS car. This is where it gets good: when I cut him off he swerved in to the 3rd lane and I did the little "oops I'm sorry wave" well he passed me then zipped over in front of me and starting slowing down, ok dude I'll let you have your little revenge for a second, then I glance at the clock- Oh crap!! So I move over into the 3rd lane (fast lane) and put the pedal to the metal- dude moves over in front me! I did not slow down I just passed him on the berm
because he just kept coming over! I am hauling some booty now, doing at least 80 mph, and then of course I come up on a slower driver, while I'm waiting for him to move over into middle lane, suzuki samurai comes zooming up behind me, gets on my bumper, I'm talking i-n-c-h-e-s away and starts flashing his brights!! holy moley dude, If I freaked out everytime someone cut me off on the freeway I'd be in a little padded room by now.... so I took the revenge path myself and slammed on my brakes, immediately accelerating again. Let's just say he wasn't expecting that one, he had to swerve to avoid hitting me and lost control of his car, spinning across the freeway- I don't know how he didn't roll it to be honest. Luckily there were no other cars around us at that point and he regained control of his car, and I kept going (of course I would have stopped if anything bad had happened) and actually made it to work on time... moral of this story? check your blind spots and don't brake check people going 70 mph. I don't think my heart came out of my throat till lunch
