This happened to me this evening. Don't think about it too much because it's one of those situations that happen quickly and you don't get much of a chance to think about it.
What would you have done if you were me?
I pulled into the local convenience store to gas up. About 8 other cars had the same idea. Today was a long day, I spent the morning taking a state certification exam, so my brain was pretty much mush when this happened.
There was 1 pump open. But to get to it, I had to pull my car around the front and backed in so I could fill up. As I'm getting out of the car, the guy behind me honks his horn. Like I said, I wasn't really paying attention because I was drained but he was finished and wanted to get out of there. He opens his door and says, "you're not going to move are you?" Ok, I got it now. But I also knew that if I pulled forward, chances are I'm going to lose my place at the pump cuz it's so busy right now. I looked behind him, saw another car behind him waiting with it's driver in it and the car running. I said to him, "Hold on". I walk past him, get the 3rd car's attention and said "Would you please back up for a second so that this guy can get out?"
This guy in the 3rd car muttered something, didn't seem too happy about it, but put his car in reverse to let the truck behind me get out. Easy enough fixed, I thought.
As I walked back to my car the guy in the truck behind me rolls down his window and says "You're a real dickhead" and starts to back up his truck. By the time he puts his truck in forward I'm now only about 5 feet in front of him and he's looking right at me.
I raise my first finger (not middle and stop him. I walk over to his door and said "I help you get out of here and I'm the dickhead?!"
He drives past me shouting, "YEAH, YOU'RE A REAL ****ING DICKHEAD" in front of about, 8-10 people.
At that point, he's still in the parking lot and my blood is boiling ..... no doubt this fat rude **** needs a lesson in manners.
So.... what do you do?
