    Angry Had to Show a Jerk in a Grand Cherokee His Place

    So I'm driving back to the South Jersey area the other day minding my own business. In my rearview, I see a large SUV DANGEROUSLY swerving in and out of traffic (damn near tipping the thing over) and finally lining up at the light I was stopped at. It's two greasy punk kids blasting Simple Plan in a Jeep Grand Cherokee [previous gen, non-Hemi] (no offense to anyone who likes the band, but I find them absolutely horrendous). I don't even look over as I check for text messages on my cell phone when I hear a revv coming from my left side. I literally look thinking to myself, do these two ignorant, foolish, sorry excuses of life think they even stand a chance? The revving continues, and I could read "COME ON LETS GO" come out of the mouth of one of these kids. Fine. Guess a lesson needs to be taught. I revv back.

    Green light hits...I decide to give the punks a one second headstart, doesn't seem sporting to kill them thoroughly. I wait a second and let the two fools punch it. They actually squealed tires for a a little bit...guess he doesn't know how to drive, even though the thing is an automatic. Time for new tires much? They get about only a 1/2 car length jump as a result...slipped the clutch at 4k and let 'er rip. I immediately get even with them. The passenger looked as if he was excited they were about to beat me...then I kicked it to 2nd gear. And I literally looked over, smiled the biggest smile, and waved. Good-bye. Take it to the top of 2nd, 3rd, halfway through 4th, they were Greyhound buses behind. I slow down before reaching my turn to look over and shake my head in disappointment. Kids these days.

    One more for the good guys.

    I was talking to one of my friends about which types of cars mess with us the most. . and I can honestly say that suv/truck drivers have given me the most crap as far as screwing around goes. The best was when I was driving with my mother and some kid in a 4 door dodge version of hte sporttrac wanted to race. I just waved him off and he flipped out on me and started yelling.
    Usually the trucks have the standard a-hole package: straightpipes and tints. . .

    Funny this should come up. I had some problems with a person in a grand cherokee. I was minding my own business traveling through TN to see some family for C'mas and then I look in my rearview mirror and see this person in a grand cherokee riding me.

    So, at this point I slowly sped up so he could move over and carry on, but this didn't seem to suit him, so I dropped from 5th to 4th and left him guessing. Oh, and I did this in a srt-4 not my suby.

    How's the Stage 2 working for you? Upgrading your turbo anytime soon?

    I have that kind of crap happen all the time. People in trucks or SUVs (also trucks) that want to "teach the stupid ricer." Half throttle, don't draw out the gear and a half mile lead later, they've learned the lesson. Even had some dumb kid in a Mach 1 try to play on a highway outside Birmingham. He paced with me a LONG time, made no move. I wasn't interested. Then he got over, slipped back some and came ripping by at WOT. So I dropped a few gears, lined up at his back wheel and waited for him to go. When he sped up, I ripped a few bus lengths on him. He didn't dare pass me or play after that. Saw him later in Tuscaloosa...he shrank down in the seat and passed as quietly as possible.
