So, I was driving to a job down south yesterday. I was at a stop light. There was a car next to me in a right turn only lane. The light turns green so I start to drive. This car speeds up and cuts me off, almost hitting me. So I honk at him. He proceeds to stick his hand out of his car and flip me off for the next half mile. In the meantime, a car behind me decided he wanted to pass me and the car in front of me. He got in the center median and illegally passed me. The car in front of me waited until the car passing us was right to the side of him and then turned left as sharp as he could and proceed to try to run the guy off the road. The passing car slammed on their brakes and honks and then falls in line between me and the 1st car. The driver of car # 1 again sticks his hand out his window and flips us off for like half a mile when he does a u-turn and stops and parks his car. He gets out and yells at us. I provide to my job (which was very close to where he had turned). He watched me turn. A few minutes later, he pulls up to where I was. I was by a window when he pulled up. He got out of his car. I was afraid he was going to go do something to my car so I walked back out front. He scream and yelled at me for flipping him off (which I didn’t) and for tailgating him (which I didn’t). He was high on something, but finally calmed down enough to leave. I was paranoid the whole time I was there that he was going to come back and either try to attack me or harm my vehicle. But he didn’t.
The Wife and I are sorry for those who were hurt and the family of those killed during today’s shotting at Virgina Tech University. It is so tragic that people would want to cause harm to others.
We were refuges for a day. Friday night (the 28th), there was a propane company that exploded about a mile from our house. The next day, over concerns that a larger tank that was damaged in the explosion was about to explode, a mandatory evacuation was ordered for a mile radius around the explosion. We were in the mile. So, we went over to my sister’s house on the other side of town. The evacuation was lifted last night and we were able to come home. We were glad that there were no problems in our area. The whole evacuation area was inside of our new Ward Boundaries.
