Was on my way to Stratford upon Avon earlier minding my own business, and just before you get into Stratford along the A3400, there's a big island. So entering the island, the left lane is for going straight ahead, and the right lane is for turning right, and I needed to go straight ahead into Stratford. And out of nowhere, some stupid kid in his '03' plate Ford Fiesta come blasting in the right lane, I knew he wanted to cut me up, and naturally, I booted it, and he was tucked up right behind me exiting the island.
So that would be the end of that right?, as we're sitting in pretty much snail moving traffic, but he's an inch from my rear bumper! As soon as the car in front of me moved forward, the kid behind me revved his engine and wheelspan to overtake me, and where we was, was a single lane, with the otherside of the road having two lanes and traffic coming towards us. I wasn't about to give in, so I accellerated too, but he now level with me and slowly inching forward past me, as I had to brake to avoid the car in front while it was still rolling. I had to make a quick decision now to let him in, as there was cars coming towards him, and he would have had to take my front end off to avoid them!
So now I'm fuming inside, amplified by the fact I'm in this slow trail of traffic with him in front of me, being smug about it no doubt!
I had to dig deep to keep my karma there, I was soo tempted to take a pic of his car and paste it all over the internet, but I just couldn't do it! I couldn't stoop myself to the same level as him, but it still didn't help me feel like a twat letting him in.
What would you have done?
