View Full Version : Minor annoyance: the road hound-dog
05-19-2009, 02:36 PM
Yesterday I encountered this one, probably closely related to the Creeper.
While driving, I noticed a couple of nice-looking women on the sidewalk. Naturally being a red-blooded member of the male species, I indulge in a little rubber-necking. But the guy in the alien-slime-green pickup truck to my right was far less subtle. I was startled by the blaring of his horn. But that was almost drowned out by the loudest, most obnoxious cowboy hound-dog war-whoop ever. Seriously, I had my windows down and the wind was rustling pretty loudly. What, did he have a loudspeaker in his van?
Real mature. Ok, maybe I'm just annoyed because his horn startled me, and I missed out on checking out the women :)
It's even more annoying when you're in traffic, stopped at a long red light session, and there's a car full of either a) inbreeds b) teenage boys or c) midlife crisis men...or just creepy older men in general, in the other lane, leering at you, and when the light turns green, purposely match your speed so that they can check you out or try to holler at you through their window....thankfully, my driver's side window won't roll down, even if it did, I'd never roll it down for any of them. Idiots. I always make sure to flip them off and take a side street and detour home. If they follow (and thankfully, most of them don't, or don't follow me all the way home...if they keep following me after the flipping off, I generally make a very quick, out of nowhere turn), I always have a knife in my glove compartment ready. A hunting knife, to be exact.
I cannot tell you how many times I've just been minding my business, trying to get home (actually, the prime time for this to happen is on Fridays when I'm leaving McDonalds and going home, NO makeup, in my jammies or sweats.....not my best look) and this has happened. Seriously? Get a life, grow up, fuck off, die in a fire please.

Drive to your local cop-shop.
I had one road-rage asshole make a seriously illegal and dangerous lane change to follow me off the freeway 'cause I had the audacity to flip him off.
I happened to know that there was a sheriff's sub-station at the local college, so I just parked in their lot and watched the loser realize what I was parked in front of and take off.
I have no idea what he thought he was going to do by following me, but he didn't have the balls to pull his shit in front of the local police. :D

I second that. You never know what these loonies will do, and even a badass Crocodile Dundee hunting knife is no match for a gun. But only the monumentally stupid will even consider trying something in the parking lot of a police station, especially when the police come a-runnin' when you blast an SOS on your car horn.
