What an asshole!

* I had no idea this post would turn into an issue. I just wrote what I saw with my own eyes while I was driving behind this man. I was behind him for several minutes and I don’t care if his daughter ran over a box of kittens. His behavior was reckless when it came to driving and yelling in his daughter’s face. There was no way I was going to honk at someone who, by the signs of his body language, was really pissed off and very animated. That is all.

 

Today I was driving home and was on a two lane highway behind a white car. The driver was a man and the passenger was what seemed like a woman.

He kept on turning his head towards her and at first I was annoyed that this guy wasn’t paying attention to the road and had slowed down to 50 mph in a 55 zone. What? Yes, I’m impatient.

This asshole started to become more animated and was turning his head to the woman more frequently. It was obvious they were having a fight. It was more like he was because she seemed to stare straight ahead.

It got to where I felt I needed to do something but what the fuck can you do when your driving down the highway at 50 mph? I was really tempted to honk my horn so his attention would take away from her but quickly realized that would really set him off.

There I was stuck behind this couple for 10 minutes or so but it seemed like forever. I thought about grabbing my cell phone and calling the police but my phone was in my purse which was where I couldn’t get to it. I felt so bad for this woman.

The highway turned into the freeway so I sped up to pass this fucker. When I looked into the car, I thought I was going to puke. Sitting in the passenger seat was a girl who was about 10-12 years-old. There are no words.

Okay, I have plenty of words I’d like to tell this guy. You dumb fucking piece of shit asshole. I could go on but I’ll spare you.

I still feel like my stomach dropped into my feet and just hope this little girl will be okay.

What would you have done in this situation?

    I would try to memorize his license plate number and then call child protective services when I arrived home. I actually did this one time when I saw a man strike a child in the front seat with his hand. It was all I could do not to rear-end him, but did not wish to harm the child. I also called the police on a woman in a Wally World bathroom who was smacking her 18-24 month old child saying, “Yes you can go potty, yes you need to go potty, stop crying or I’ll smack you again.” My blood actually boiled on that one and I stepped in – told her what I actually thought of her mothering methods and suggested she sit on the toliet so I could smack her when she didn’t go potty. Then I went outside and called the police. To see children abused, makes me see totally red and my RED HAIR stands up and I just want to treat them the way they are treating their child.

    Wait, so you don’t know anything about either party but are making a judgement about the pair due to a roadside observation? Obvious? Unless you hear or see something, there’s nothing obvious about this situation.

    I have no words for you.

    But what if he was yelling at his daughter because he had just picked her up from the mall, where she was being held by security for shoplifting?

    Or what if he was yelling at her because her school has suspended her because of her bullying classmates on facebook?

    Next time honk & follow it up with a friendly wave. If he’s a jerk, he’ll know someone is watching. If he is just a exasperated parent, he might save his lectures for when they get home.
