I was driving home on Santa Monica Blvd. and a guy in a new Audi A5 passes me on the right which is not a lane then cuts in front of me before he hits the parked cars.
I merged left and waited for an opportunity to pass him. Fortunately, the left lane did go faster than his lane at some point and I did nudge ahead of him for a second. I made my move.
I signaled, of course, and cut in front of him. Then I slowed down equal to the car next to me so he’d be boxed in. I could see in the rear view mirror that he was going nuts. He swerved left but that car was going too slowly. He merged right behind me again. I literally laughed out loud at all the frustration I was causing this guy.
We got the light at Westwood and he managed to pull up next to me. So I rolled down my window and motioned for him to do the same. He did.
I said, “Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?”
He said, “Go fuck yourself.”
The light changed and he literally burned rubber.
Does this count as talking to strangers?
