Maybe a mild form of road rage, usually it’s just me talking aloud to myself asking why people don’t know how to drive!

Mildly.  I have flipped the bird once (maybe twice) but normally just grumbling to myself.  I don’t do anything dangerous, though.  Where I live the traffic sucks and I despise my commute to work.  I dearly wish I could work from home, that’d be my dream come true.

I get irrationaly angry, but usually only internally.  I’d never run someone off the road or shoot them or anything.  I do sometimes, just to kill them with kindness, flash them a peace sign and a big smile if they pull a douchebag move like cutting me off or something.

I definitely do!  When people cut me off or generally drive badly, I tend to just say “I hate you!” out loud – my fiance is totally used to it now 🙂

Flashing your brights at me because you want me to go faster when I am already 10 above the speed limit?  That will get you an emphatic and extended display of my middle finger lol

Ignites my road rage like nothing else: People who are turning left in a “straight of left” lane, but don’t pull into the middle of the intersection to get out of the way for the cars behind them. So I’m stuck there through 1 or more green lights. Awful.

Oh yea. I’m a raging psycho on the road when someone pisses me off. I’ve gone as far as to actually follow someone who was a whole new breed of douchebag. I probably scared the shit out of them which is what I was going for. Normally though, I either flip them off or give them a thumbs up, and then act utterly disgusted when the driver can see me. Yea, it’s a big production but it makes me feel better.

I am *much* calmer now to the point that I normally just let things slide.  But in the past, I’d brake check, squeeze, race, block the car…  run the car off into an exit…

FI actually won’t let me drive if he’s in the car because my road rage is so bad. No matter, I just reach over him and honk and flip people off when I deem appropriate. I am also a RIDICULOUS tailgaiter when people are going too slow. That is my biggest pet peeve. I blame my dad, who is the one who taught me to drive.

Oh, my personal favorite is when someones riding my ass. I slow down to WELL below the speed limit. This is particularly entertaining when there’s no way to get around me. I’m probably gonna get myself shot one of these days, lol.

I have a bit of road rage. If someone won’ let me in and I have to miss my turn, my mouth is not very lady like.

I’ve gotten more annoyed as I’ve gotten older and driven longer distances.  Like people BREAKING ON THE INTERSTATE WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU IDIOT.  I swear, there are some people who have no business in the driver’s seat.  Ugh.  But I never cut anyone off, I just yell at them in my car.  Ha ha

@UpstateCait:  I do the same thing.  People can be so rude!  Especially if you’re in traffic and you can’t go any faster!
