cool road rage!

Moonlight classic in Denver, somewhat closed course, thousands of cyclist riding through the streets. One car edging into a lane with a hundred cyclists, trying to push his way forward. Obviously pissed off. Everyone acting cool get the plate number, one cyclist starts talking to the guy calmly...
The guy stops in the road and gets out of his car...
And gets into the passenger seat.
Still cursing up a storm (traffic is traffic but he was pissed because it bikes i guess...) he asks his girlfriend to drive so he doesn't do anything stupid. (paraphrase of his own words)

Cool dude. I know he'll never read this but i wanted to buy the dude a beer. An out of control moment, back in control.
Really cool.

Yeah, but I'd still buy him a beer. Sounds like one of those rare people who's sufficiently self-aware that if a cyclist were to sit down with him and talk sense, he might change his mind about us.
