This is a question Road Rage

Last week I had to stop a guy attacking another one in the middle of the road - one had run the lights whilst on the phone and the other had objected. I actually had to take the attacker's car keys out of their car and tell him he wasn't getting them back till he calmed down.

Looking back on it, I was lucky I was feeling all parental and in control or the situation could have panned out very differently.

Have you lost it on the roads, or have you been on the recieving end of some nutter?

Road niceness
Here's something a bit different for you, not very interesting but at least it proves it's not all bad.

Driving down a narrow street lined with parked cars I pulled to the side to let a car heading in the opposite direction pass.
Instead of the standard raised hand to signal gratitude he stopped along side me, rolled down his window and shouted "Thank you!" very loudly but very politely into my car.

Now when someone says thank you to you in a situation you are used to the programmed response is something like "That's OK" or "No problem" but in this totally alien setting the best I could come up with was "Fmurb?" and to fix the man even more confused than usual look on my face.

Having had 2 minutes previously crafted myself a monobrow using my two natural eyebrows and a black marker pen completed my look perfectly.

That taught him.
