I have in the past been a little hot headed, but have had treatment and it has chilled me a huge amount.
I was driving home from dropping off my nephew last night on the way home just entering a section of unlit road between the two villages my car starts to splutter.
I thought it was better to limp the 1/4 mile into the lit area so any breakdown would be much safer. The car behind me was obviously in a mad rush (limit was 40) and despite the spluttering the min it got to was 30.I pulled to the left as far as i could and stuck the hazards on, only to be greated by them tailgating me and flashing their headlights.
I used my head then and though this doesnt look too promising seeing as i was now only about 100 meters from the house it might be worth limping home, the car had other ideas.
I pulled over , hazards on to be greated by a tall and angry guy from the passenger side who decided to push me around and wouldnt listen that the car had broken down i wasnt intimedating them, his mate got out the rear of the car and tried to drag him off me. Once the big guy was off, my glasses were smashed up on the drivers seat ( i barley even got up out of it) The second guy then tells me to get in my car and go a few times, i tried to tell him i can't as the car was brokenm he then says go or i will hit you, i again explained the car is broken, i can't so he did as he warned and smacked me a good 'en.
While i pulled myself together they went back towards the car to try to drive away, i had to stand in front of their car to attempt to slow them down so i could read the plate to the Police as i had them on the phone by then, but my eyesight wasn't too good due to lack of glasses.
A random young lady stopped as they drove off to see if i was ok, offered to take me home to get a can( as i suspected i had run out of juice) I then in my shaken state couldn't find any cash she even spotted me £3 to put in the car to move it. I am so pleased people like that still exist, worse still i only got her first name and a rough location, I cant even thank her.
Anyway Police are dealing, i just wanted to vent as i am p!$$ed off with a fat lip, and a shattered confidence.
PS it was petrol, Damned inaccurate DIS, which part of 5 miles did it not understand....
