Some drivers are just BAD people..

OK so we were cycling down a busy 4 lane road and came to a stoplight. There was a right turn lane and we were going straight. So, in usual fashion I got on the white line between the straight lane and turning lane. Then I hear this roar of a big truck engine right in my ear- a truck passes me, pulling a trailer with about a ton of stuff. Revving his engine just as he passed me, he swerved to within inches of me, obviously just to be mean. Then, I did something I haven't done probably since high school (forgive me Lane, Avery and Hadley should you read this when you grow up-Grandma Debi has a dark side):

I flipped him off!

I got honked at/almost run over by a huge semi trying to turn right but failing to put on his turn signal so how would I know?? apparently we are suppose to be psychic bike riders!

I would have double flipped him just to be sure he saw it!! I would have screamed an f-bomb, too cause I'm gentile like that. Maybe when I'm a grandma I'll calm down ;-)

Welcome! Since I'm not a teacher any more, flipping the bird is my new hobby! I don't do it around Brian, though. He thinks I'm a delicate, ladylike flower, and I don't want to crush his vision of me.

He TOTALLY deserved it! In fact, he deserved the double flip off that 21stcenturymom would have given him - but how do you do that without falling off your bike I wonder? (Even stopped I am just not that coordinated!) Mean drivers suck!
