Douche Maneuver

by Carmen Cruz

I've been known to have a bit of road rage every once in a while. Ok. Maybe a little more often than that.
But listen to this...

I was driving down 12th ave yesterday, heading out of town. There was this navy blue VW Jetta that cut me off, then decided to slow down. I threw my hands up in the air, in frustration. That's it. No swearing, honking, etc.

So I see the guy in the VW mimic me and throw his hands up in the air. Next thing I know, he throws some sort of food (an apple core?) at my car. I was all WTF!!! I immediately take down his license plate and pull out into the lane next to him, just in case he decides to throw something else at me.

I rolled down my window and yelled at him 'I can't believe you threw something at me! I'm reporting you to the cops'!!! Dude just laughed and then yelled at me 'it's biodegradable'!


About five minutes later, dude drives past me and gives me the finger.

So yes, I actually have the guy's license plate, but I didn't end up doing anything with it. A part of me wants to report him to the police, who probably wouldn't do anything about it anyways. Another part of me says I should just let it go.

If you were in my position, and someone threw something at your car in a fit of rage, what would you do????
