gawd, I had the stupidest road rage argument on the weekend. Was parking my car, and wasn’t quite straight, so I reversed a bit to straighten up. As I was reversing some stupid idiot who must have been going too fast beeped his horn at me. I wasn’t able to see because I had a van next to me, but he must have been too fast cuz there was no one behind me 2 secs ago. Anyway, I thought “idiot” and left it at that. But when I got out of my car, the other guy had parked and started abusing me, I shouted something back explaining that he must have been going too fast, blah blah. I went to walk off to go teach my gym class (Body Balance incidently), and he started swearing at me and fully insulting me. So I wandered over (he was setting up a pram, as he had his wife and kids there). I couldn’t believe this guy, insulting me, swearing in front of his kids. Then he said something that made me SNAP. He said really sarcastically and in a baby voice “go on, you go and have you’re little gym workout now”. I saw red. It doesn’t happen often. But he saw Mel unleashed. I’m not sure what got into me, but after explaining to him that I do martial arts and am a combat instructor I asked him if he wanted a fight, if that’s what his aim was (don’t ask me WHAT possessed me to do this). He actually seemed to get scared at this point, lol…….and I yelled at him “Scared now are we?”………and he threw back another brilliant insult saying “look at you, anyone would be scared of THAT” lol From this point every time I turned my back to go to the gym he’d give me fresh insults, so I ended up standing there and staring him down till he finally left. Then, raced into my BB class (glad that no participants witnessed me losing my temper), and they were worried cuz it was dead on time the class was supposed to start. I raced in, hands kinda shaking a little saying “you have NO IDEA what just happened to me!” They just laughed at me…………can you believe that? they LAUGHED at me icon_lol.gif they thought it hilarious about how the guy told me to go have my “little gym workout”……….he pushed my buttons, in the WRONG way.
