but luckily I caught his escaping ass. 2 days ago I was
on my way to work (in the slow lane) and this green Ford
Explorer (in the fast lane) from Colorado saw his exit,
but he was right on it so he simply cut me off. He hit
the front of my car and sent me into a spin. He went off
the road from the force of the impact. Surprisingly the
spin was very controlled, I slammed on the brakes and controlled the car in the midst of the spin so that when I
came out of the spin, I was on the shoulder, out of traffic.
(We were going about 70 or so.)
I stopped, and looked for the other guy to stop, but to
my surprise he got back in the road without even stopping,
and kept going! I said to my self, "Oh HELL NO", and I
went off after him, with my fender rubbing the shit out of
my tire. I was NOT going to let the jerk get away, not matter what. It was the principal, that's it.
I was furious, and pulled up to him and rolled down my window and said, "pull that f*cking truck over right f*cking
now". I had on my work clothes, so I think he thought I was
an off-duty cop or something, that's the only reason he
stopped. I got out, pushed the guy away from his truck and
grabbed his keys out of his RUNNING truck. I said, "stand
your ass right over there, and DON'T move". I told him
to give me his cell, I called the cops and they came. The
only thing they do is give me and him some "Information"
forms, they don't take a report. (Standard procedure, he
says) The other guy kept saying, "I'm sorry, I'll pay for
it". He admitted guilt in front of the cops, but it's
basically my word against him. This is my life. Now you
know why I hate those tall, cumbersome SUV's? I almost bought one, except on the test drive I almost turned over
a Jeep, so I got the M3 instead. Now to wait to be raped
by the insurance companies. Uhhhhhh.
