Thread: Human being are stupid, they just are.

    I can see where carracer may have thought 4-way stop with the 4-way intersection statement. But anyway.

    Looks to me like the guy say your turn signal come on, assumed you were turning and took that as it being okay to pull out. Most likely felt he had room since you would be turning anyway.
    NOT saying his actions were correct, just how I see it from your description.

    Would I have pulled out to turn? Not a chance as I trust no one, you could have been signaling a turn into the drivewasy just past the intersection. I ride/drive defensively. Look at other traffic as one of two types of drivers. Those who don't see me and those who don't care.

    But I also wouldn't have hit the horn. Spending most of my time driving in or near Detroit, I tend to avoid road rage or the possiblilty of it as much as possible. To me, not worth the stress or hassle to argue with stupid.

    What is that saying? "Don't argue with stupid people, the will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience."

  4. In younger years (long, long ago) I had a similar experience when someone honked at me when I had the right of way at a stop. He honked several times, while we were both nearly bumper to bumper. Being the calm, cool type I was, at that age and about 5' 7" @ 185 and ripped, I jumped out of my car and asked the other driver if he'd like that horn shoved up his a$$(yes, I did threaten him, in a way)! Then I noticed his girlfriend in the passenger seat. Turns out she was the one who reached over and started honking his horn. I didn't extend her the same offer, however.

    Got back in my car, backed-up, and continued on my way.

    I made a mental note never to do that again, no matter how pi$$ed-off I was. Stupid, I could have been shot, or who knows what?

    I really do not trust most people on the road. Just the other day I was at a stop light waiting for the left turn arrow. When it came on I started to go and make my left turn and a young girl came across the intersection. If I had not hit the brakes she would have hit me. She had been sitting at the light and when the green arrow came on here she came. I did not hit the horn or anything but when I looked in my rear view mirror the driver behind me was shaking his head and laughing at her stupidity.

    What worries me is they breed more idiots!!!!

    It's the crazy ones who are most dangerous. But as said before you can't fix stupid. People like that wait for you to lose it and then they dial the police. Guess who loses then. Glad it didn't go further.

    As I mentioned in the OP he kept going to his truck. I think his intent was for me to follow him so he could justify pullinng out whatever weapon he had

    This was pointed out on another forum so I want to clarify it here.

    4 way intersection but I didn't have to stop and I couldn't see his signal (not that I would have trusted it anyway). The guy pulled out so far to turn that it looked like he was going straight across the intersection that's why I honked

    As I’ve posted before numerous times I make it a rule not to trifle with people I don’t know because I have won what I call the psycho lottery and have had people respond completely disproportionately to what I thought was a minor comment or an action I took. I have learned my lesson well, I know people are crazy and unpredictable and I don’t mess with them. So, it amazes me when I see someone who does.
    I know the feeling. Some people are just stupid and looking for trouble. When I was much younger and before the back surgeries, I worked as a bouncer in a cowboy bar for extra money.
    I come in for the night shift and one of the "regulars" there was sitting at the bar. Now mind you, I don't start the fights, I just break them up and escort time from the building. Unless theres a weapon used and some one is injured, I hold them for the police.
    Now this guy has seen me throw men out of this bar that were larger than me. (I'm 6'4" and 245 then) He's 150 soaking wet and about 5'4" with a pot belly. I set down a couple of stools down from him. order a soda. I turn and in a cordial tone say,"How ya' doin'?" He jumps up and hollers,"What the F**k do you mean by that you sob?" All red in the face. And TAKES A SWING at me!
    Some people are just stupid. You can't fix stupid.
