We were convoying on a drill weekend to the east side of Washington. A car full of teenage boys decided to start playing games with the convoy. They were weaving between the trucks at 80. the tail elements called ahead by radio. My platoon boxed the car in with our trucks and closed it tight enough the car couldn't go anywhere. We kept those boys stuck while doing 55 mph for miles. The driver was cussing and swearing at the truck next to him the whole time. When we finally hit an exit he goes tearing off to get ahead of us. Another platoon caught them coming up the on ramp and blocked them in. It was quite aways to another off ramp since we were going over a pass. They pulled off at the next off ramp. We didn't see them again after that for some reason. :lol3:

Driving home from work in the late 80s, I had a woman riding my bumper,I thought she was on a tow bar, I was running 10 over the limit. I tapped the brakes, she did not back off! For some reason, on a straight stretch of road I was in 3rd gear, with the tache. in optimum torque range, a squirrle ran in front of me! I stuffed the brakes, saw smoke come off the tires as I floored the gas, saw her eyes get the size of dinner plates as I pulled away. She stayed 10 car lengths behind me after that! I laughed! :thumbsup:

By the way, this was in a 1968 122 Volvo wagon, with HUGE tires, 225/70/15,on Chrysler wheels, not the stock 185/85/15.

Reading this reminded me of one that happened to me. I drive fast like 10-15 over no matter what its just the way I drive well I have a Jeep Wrangler. One this one day the nut is riding my bumper so close you can't see his head lights I politely tap the brakes he doesn't back off. I slow down he doesn't pass me. I even down shifted and slammed on the brakes buddy got right back on my bumper by this time I was ill so I took the dip out of my mouth tossed it up between the roll bars when it landed on his windshield he decided it was time to get off my butt.

was only a witness to the crime and wish i wasnt there at all as i could have gotten in some serious shite but my friend was driving and it was one of those places where people want to fly down the left lane until just bfore it ends then cut you off. Well some guy tried it and my buddy wasnt giving in on the merge. guy gets in gravel swirves behind us, proceeds to get up along side us and starts yelling the pull over tough guy stuff. My friend is 250 and 6'3 but driving a colt so he looked tiny. well my friend pulled over, the guy runs up to his driver door and just about the time he gets there cussing the whole way, my friend steps out and in one fluid motion floored the dude with one beastly hammer of a right. got back in the car and drove off. I still remember laughing my ass off as i see this guy laid out cold turkey on on the side of the road. Again, i did not instigate it, nor condone it. was kind of in shock that it was going down.

had another friend that was wild as crap and we had some guy pull up yelling and the guy with me opens the glove box and pulled out a pistol and started waving it at the other vehicle. That one scared the crap out of me and i never rode anywhere with him again. some people seem like the nicest people in the world until they get behind a wheel and then they go Dr Jeckyl and Mr Hyde.

one of my jobs way back in the day between highschool and college was delivering auto parts around to local shops. driving all the time, i often encountered bad drivers, tailgaters etc. the tailgaters really bothered me. the car i drove had rear wipers so i moved the washer fluid jet on the back windshield to point straight back. that way whenever i had a tailgater i could hit the back windshield washer jet and shoot washer fluid at them. i always said i was gonna piss in the washer fluid reservoir but i never actually took it that far.

I watched a woman brake check a state trooper running code on 696 on my way back from a fly fishing show in metro Detroit one February. Life did not go well for her that day....
