Angry What a pity!

It was 6 in the evening, while i was driving past a traffic signal junction. Passing by, via the free right, there was a man waiting to cross pedestrian zebra lines. I reduced speed gradually and let that man cross the road.

"Sound Horns and horns, with dipped lights", accelerating and raising to show his anger from the "land cruiser” behind me. Well, I didn’t care about all that. Once the man crossed the road, I accelerated gradually and there flew the guy with his land cruiser right from the back and jumps/blocks my way. He opened his window panes, and shouts "this is not INDIA, this is my country". I looked at him and replied, "well, you are bursting out of this world in anger, just coz I let that poor guy cross the road?" ..... again he exclaimed "its my country ... its my country"


What a pity! .... just thinking, why do people behave this way? Are we too busy that we cant let two seconds for others to cross roads?

Regards
ZANE

That sounds like witty, snappy dialogue............ I'm surprised either of you could keep a straight face............

Well you did what a cultured and civilised person would do. Do not expect the same from bedouins who have left the camels in the garage and pulled out their LC.

Get that every morning (the flashing and beeping) on school run whenever let anyone out of a junction. Just make sure I let more out at next one! Last time I let the double-springy bus out, that really pisses people off!

Whenever i get "pulled over' by the local emirati's for driving too slow I pretend to burst out crying really, really loud, it really ****s with their head, they usually look really puzzled and drive away..

Try that next time...or run the indian guy over...whichever's easier.
