I’m usually a big fan of “Advice Goddess” Amy Alkon (see “Don’t Mess With Amy Alkon!”), but her recent misadventure reeks of nothing less than road rage. Amy was understandably upset after nearly being rearended by a doofus talking on their cel phone (pictured), but then:
My first impulse was to be glad to be unhit. My second impulse was to follow her selfish, irresponsible ass and yell at her when she got out of her car.
And I did.
Details of white woman’s road rage after the jump…
And yes, I stopped at every stop sign, and no, I didn’t speed. And, thanks, I appreciate in advance your concern for my safety, but does this girl look like a gang member or somebody who has a gun in her glove compartment?
The dimwit drove straight home and started unpacking her car. She probably didn’t even notice me behind her, turn after turn after turn, because she was too involved in her damn call.
I confronted her, asking, “What if you’d hit me?”
“The insurance would’ve paid for it,” she sniffed.
I don’t know about you, dear reader, but if someone followed me home “turn after turn after turn” because I made a stupid driving foul up, I’d have feared for the worst and delivered a preemptive strike. Does Amy think that chasing this woman down it will make her more attentive while driving?
While I’m convinced Amy overreacted to this, what I’m not sure about if this make for a good argument for or against concealed weapons permits.
Next time, Amy should just put the idiots license plate number on Tattleware first, and worry about the potential libel case later.
