This is a question "Needless to say, I had the last laugh"

Celebrity autobiographies are filled to the brim with self-righteous tales of smug oneupmanship. So, forget you had any shame, grab a coffee and a croissant, and tell us your smug tales of when you got one over somebody.

Thanks to Ring of Fire for the suggestion

Audi driving twunt
The other day, I was on the motorway in my adopted home in France, overtaking a lorry at the national speed limit of 130kmh. I’m about half way past the big diesel chugging, Paella slurping, shit-stained y-front-toting, crumpled porn mag grasping driver when I notice the prince of all cunt cars zooming up behind me - an Audi TT. If you’ve ever driven here you may notice a mildly irritating habit the people have of leaving their indicators on “left” when overtaking, even if they are in the fast lane and there is no “left” other than the barrier. This guy was doing this, thus letting me know that he intended basically to overtake everything in his path, and that I should hurry up and get the fuck out of his way. Not content with the indicator alone, he also decided to start flashing his headlights and gesticulating wildly with his hands in a wannabe proper mediterranean diego fashion. The thing is, as a new driver I’m only supposed to do 110kmh, which is not realistic, but it’s not worth the risk going over 130 as I would be on shit street proper if I got flashed. So I maintained my speed. In fact I may even have slowed down a bit, as the rage and indignation leapt through my synapses. Another example of mindless aggression from the security of an expensively engineered locked steel box.

For some reason, when I do get past the lorry, the guy insists on pulling up alongside me and waving his hands at me wildly. I’m sure there was actually spit hitting the inside of his passenger side window. Now, I’m normally a fairly careful driver, preferring to keep both hands on the wheel at all times, but I broke a rule and gave this guy a nice frank middle finger and blew him a kiss. Not sure what inspired the kiss, but it really seemed to enrage him. The nutter overtook me, then stayed at my speed, pointing at the next “aire de répos”, which was just 500m away, and implying that we should meet there to discuss our differences.

I really do not go in for this sort of thing, I mean you never know who is in the car do you? But on this occasion the rage caused by him cutting me up as he overtook carried enough momentum to guide my car onto the slip road and into the small car park where I pulled up along side him and got out of the car. I was surprised when he didn’t do the same.

After a time, a custom built sliding door began to open slowly on the Audi, to the background of quiet siren and a flashing light. As the interior of the car was revealed, a wheelchair bound figure came into view. In time a ramp slid out and a smiling head and torso in a wheelchair rolled down on to the tarmac. The motorised chair moved to face me almost silently and its owner made a classic “what are you gonna do?” shrug with his two good arms outstretched, ripe to embrace the prize of my impotent outrage. I jabbed him once hard in the face and drove off wondering whether I had done the right thing or not. Probably.

It's a well-executed piece of obvious trolling.
Well played, I say.

fair's fair, the wheelchair bloke could easily have rolled over and punched him back. It's not like he kicked him....

Thank you!
I am so glad I'm not the only person who noticed this. Seriously, if you're going to write an untrue little story about socking one to a disabled Frenchman, at least get your racial stereotypes correct!

Got to say
it does seem a little made up. Audi TT converted for a wheelchair? There's fuck all room inside them for an able bodied person. Motorised Wheelchair AND a ramp? Hmm..

I've got to say, it's either a masterpiece of QOTW satire, taking in as it does..
..tiresome sub-Top Gear jokes, self righteousness and prickish hardmanning, or the OP really is a monstrous prick.

me calling him a prick is just like off top gear, when they do the jokes.
its just a joke.
although interestingly, that also happens to be my genunie opinion.

Wow, a scandal eh?! Nicely, but a rant written to amuse is hardly trolling is it, unless a lot of b3tans drive Audi TTs? The post is 78%as true as 50% of QOTW posts. FACT. Also, I'm not racist, I just really don't like paella. coming over here with their fishy ways: NAH MATE!

It wasn't very amusing though.
I found it ridiculous and joke-free.

Well done for trying though.

So hang on, you actually ARE a massive prick?

I suppose that is a question of opinion. Obviously the story is made up, as you have correctly stated several times, but does the content make me a prick? Quite possibly, but I do find it a bit odd that on the one hand this website hosts images of jokes based on the twin towers, the holocaust, and other atrocities, but by the same token QOTW folk are occasionally extremely PC. As for expecting a high truth content - how many of the better stories you read do you really think are true? Anyway, you know all this, I'm going to go away and find handicapped people to beat down on the way home.

By law
in Europe you must keep indicating whilst overtaking, so technically the audi driver in this story is a better driver than you.
