So I was riding home from work like usual. Minding my own business going 85 or so. I usually cruise with the flow of traffic but pass everyone since I can't stand following.
I was cruising along in the passing lane until I caught up to a ~2003 Jetta Coupe VR6. Your standard Black VW w/tinted windows, big chrome aftermaket wheels and a Muffler on it. Even had the whole tinted license plate holder. Whatever...He was going 75 in the fast lane, which to me is annoyingly slow. I waited a few minutes to see if he would move. I don't tailgate....
He wouldn't move, so I decided to pass on the right. This happens to be something I have to do a LOT since I've gotten my WRX. Truck drivers, Audi, BMW, or other sport cars see a wrx and seem like they want to be ****s and not move....anyways..
I pull over and start to pass (not gunning it) and happened to look over. He's your standard college kid with the baseball cap, sunglasses, gangsta leaned etc. He doesn't even look but obviously notices me and guns it....I seriously LAUGHED out loud...then dropped to 4th and let it go. It really wasn't a problem to pull away at all. That part wasn't a race of course...but was funny.
Once I got up in front I pulled in front and then proceeded to slow to my 85mph. He of course now wants to go faster and finds it annoying that I'm in front of him. Why is it thee people won't f***ing move OR speed up, but when you get in front of them they tailgate and swerve back and forth checking traffic to pass you..... Well....It's because the WRX is intimidating and no one likes to be passed by a "ricer" since people tend to classify it as that.
So he pulls back and gets ready to launch when traffic clears on the right. I see this coming so I carefully downshift into 4th and leave it. He pulls back, and then obviously guns it since the inertia rolls the whole car to the back end when he floors it. I wasn't out to BEAT him, but more or less annoy the **** out of him. So I floor it just enough so he can't get by, but not enough to get in front either. I wait until traffic comes up and then slow down just enough that he has to brake and get back behind me....
Needless to say he was slightly pisssed....I was laughing my ass off and had some fun.
Yeah...I'm a ****...but I didn't start it.
