Flipped off at last!

Sum Yung Gy took umbrage at my chosen cruise speed and saluted when he passed. I laughed but it did occur to me it took about 20 years of puttering around for it to finally happen.

The 2-lane road is pretty much all passing zone; it's not my fault breeders fill up the roads such that one can't pass at will.

I don't think he was flipping you off, he was calling you number one!

I've been told I'm number one multiple times in a week, then again I do sometimes call-out and instigate idiot drivers.

Today on the highway some guy revved his engine as he drove past me. I passed him less than a minute later at the highway offramp because the light for his lane was red.

Congratulations on getting to the point where it is a laughing matter. I think I am finally getting to that point myself.

I LMAO because such a nothingburger effected him that much!

When I see people over-reacting to piddly things I say, "Gee I wish I was that person! Because if that was the worst thing in their day I would love to be them!"
