I didn't save a copy of this story before the hacks, but a lot of people enjoyed it, so I'm getting off my bum and writing it again [This time I'll save it]:
My husband's stepfather (my FIL) used to own a warehouse and trucking company. He liked driving and often drove a truck right up until he sold the company and retired last year. My mother-in-law would often accompany him just to get out and around.
My FIL is a very nice and easygoing person. He pretty much had to be if he was driving several tons of fast-moving metal. Driving a truck is not a proper job for someone with a thin skin and anger issues.
He does, however, have limits on what he will take. He also has a very mean passive-agressive streak that you don't want turned in your direction.
This particular incident happened when he was making a delivery to a store. He started backing his truck up to the loading area when a jerk zipped up and parked between him and the bay.
FIL asked the guy to move and was rewarded with some not-so-nice words [something along the lines of "you can fucking wait" I believe] as the jerk went into the store.
I suppose FIL could have taken the high road and waited, but he didn't appreciate how rude the jerk was. So he made sure to park the truck in such a way that the jerk was blocked in and began to unload his truck.
When the jerk came out he demanded that FIL move so he could leave. FIL told him that he would move when he was done unloading. Of course unloading from the bay would have been faster, but FIL wasn't at the bay and whose fault was that?
So it was bring out the hand truck. Lift it up into the truck. Put merchandise on the hand truck. Move the lift down. Walk over to the bay. Unload. Repeat. It dawned on the jerk that he was going to be there a while. So he got verbally abusive.
FIL ignored him and continued his very slow unloading. Finally the jerk couldn't take it any more. He got into his vehicle and drove at the truck as if he would ram it. No response from FIL. He just kept unloading.
Then the jerk decided to make a run for the small gap between the truck and the building. He did manage to get out. He also had a nice large gash in the side of his vehicle. The truck got a bit of paint on it. FIL finally had to pay attention since his truck was now involved in an accident.
The jerk decided to try blaming FIL for the damage and actually brought in the police thinking he could get FIL in trouble. That didn't turn out very well for the jerk either.
I have a couple more vintage FIL stories if anyone wants to read them.
