I'm normally a nice guy, try to be friendly to drivers, and rarely respond to aggressive behavior. However, I must confess to intentionally making a motorist uncomfortable today.
One of the highways I travel was exceptionally blocked up this morning. Most people were waiting patiently in their cars moving 0-5 mph, but there's always some jerk who has to pass on the shoulder. Once one person does this you can count on a few others to try the same trick.
Anyway, someone in a Lexus GX started to pull onto the shoulder just as I was coming up behind him. Aside from the fact I don't want to get stuck behind a row of cars, the paved part shoulder was only about 4' wide (the rest is gravel) so passing on the right would be impossible.
I blew by cutting him just a couple inches of space and unambigously pointed where I thought his car should be. As I watched in my rearview, he returned to the line and I gave a friendly wave. Just gotta let 'em know who's boss sometime
