Prayer - how to do nothing and still think you're helping.
Eh- him being all mad I'm taking long would be the reason I would fill up. But I wouldn't go out of my way to show him I was not happy with his attitude. (flipping him off) Then, once I was done I would drive away with a smile, knowing what I've done. You don't need to actually do something to anger someone like that... Just doing what you do (in this case, filling up) will do just fine. One day HE will be the one that honks at the wrong person. And that is the justice I hope for as I drive away smiling
I'm probably going to get backlash for this, but anyway, I've been in a few situations like this. Nothing this bad has happened to me for a few reasons, but something did happen to my friends. One time my friends were at a gas station having just left a strip club and some drunk marines pulled up behind them. My buddies went inside, bought some stuff, and came out to leave. The marines came out right behind them, looked into their trunk, and somehow accused them of stealing their liquor. I know my friends didn't steal their liquor because that's not how they roll. Anyway, long story short, one of the marines hits one of my friends with a crowbar in the face, and the others (there were 4) ganged up on my other 2 buddies... Now the part where I am going to get backlash... I don't let this type of stuff happen to me. I used to carry a small child's aluminum bat with me (fast one-handed swing), but have since upgraded to... a louder smaller object. I have had only one road-rage problem since I've been carrying said piece and a mere presentation of the object ended the problem real quickly. Basically this black honda was swerving in traffic, cut me off causing me to brake and swerve, at which point I flipped them off. The guy slams on his brakes, pulls up beside of me and him and his buddies start yelling at me and flipping me off. The guy also swerved like he was going to ram the side of my car, so I pulled out... Mr. Peeps, lol, and their eyes opened up like they saw a ghost. Needless to say they backed off. I wouldn't normally resort to such measures but I have been in other situations that didn't end well or could have ended up a lot worse. When I was in middle school my older sister's boyfriend and I were driving home from school (the high school and middle school were right next to each other). We got caught up in the usual after-school traffic and were in line waiting for the longest light signal ever. These 5 high school guys were walking along the line of cars handing out fliers for some punk concert they were going to put on. They came up to my buddies car and he said no thanks, that he did not want the flier. The guy said oh well and threw it in the car anyway. My buddy took the flier and threw it back out of the car. The guy having walked off already, backtracks, picks up the flier and stuffs it back in the car and calls my friend a stupid N***** (he's half black). This guy must have felt all big and bad with his 4 buddies to back him up, but the situation flipped on him real fast. My buddy opened his door pissed off as hell, and the other guys started to walk towards him at this point. He grabs his aluminum bat from the backseat and charges the first guy, ready to knock his head clean off. The guy literally started to cry and beg him not to lol. The other guys no longer had their friends' back at this moment and they backed up real quickly. My friend didn't hit anyone, but he didn't have to. He stopped the guys from jumping him (or even us), and everything went on just fine.
Anyway, my point is, there are a lot of crazy people out there and you never know what they will do. People get killed from road rage all the time, and I refuse to be one of those statistics. That's why me and Mr. Peeps go for so many rides .
First of all It don't take me long to decide to fill up or not. It's pretty much instantaneous.
But if I was trying to decide his horn would not only convince me to fill up, but it would also help me to decide at what speed to fill up. Of course I would lock the handle in the very first (slowest) click. Then I would have to go in and use the bathroom and buy a drink and maybe some chips. Of course I would be nice and let other people waiting in line in front of me.
If he decided to do something stupid, like punching my car or me, it would probably been captured on surveillance cameras along with his license plate.
Of course normally I don't do things like that. I always try to be as respectful to other people as I want them to be with me. If somebody was waiting for the pump, I would pull up after pumping, but if they were an ***, then I'll be a bigger ***.
I saw a bumper sticker once that said
"I wish you 2x's what you wish for me"
That's just about says it all.
Not from me, I agree with everything you said.I'm probably going to get backlash for this,
I also have a little friend to help me out in situations like that. I've never had to point it at anybody, but just holding him in my hand changes things completely. On time there was a drunk guy trying to stab two women, there were little kinds there. I considered the kids to be in danger as well as the two women. Just the presents of my little friend changed this guys mind. He left and the police took it from there.
He filed charges against me for assault with a deadly weapon. It was laughed out of court.
growergray- submit that to Mythbusters! I'd love to see it
hmm...that's an idea. They have done gas related myths in the past...
