Long story short this guy saw me trying to merge in but he would not let me in. After he was like wording something off to me then i gave him the finger. Then we rolled down the window and i told him what i though about what just occured then he said something. My girlfriend was literally in the middle of this and she kept telling me to just let it go and keep driving while we were back talking to each other. So anyways some words were said then he exited. I was really mad and i regret saying this but i told my girlfriend when i'm speaking to someone else she should shut he rmouth cause doesn't know anything about driving.
After that she got kinda emotional and said i'm scary when i get mad and she was only trying to help me out. I really do regret what i said to my girlfriend. How can i make it up to her?
I sometimes get road rage too. Tell your girl that you're sorry and say that it was in the moment type of thing, also take her out this Saturday. Some drivers can be assholes. Like for example this girl with her cigarette flung it out the window and hit my car, it migfht be small but it got me mad lol. There were other instances were drivers need to be alert, especially texting and driving !!!
I have been the girl in this position before. After a great date with my ex, we were discussing the movie when suddenly he slammed on the breaks, reversed in the middle of the (empty) street, and began following a car. I tried deescalating the situation by telling him to stop and calm down. Like you did, he disrespected me and tried to tell me to shut up. I didn't and told him to stop. He wouldn't listen. He began speeding after a car full of people who apparently flicked him off "for no reason". -_- (Macho bullshit) The roads were slick because it had just finished raining so we ended up hydroplaning and the car was bouncing from the curve to the metal divider separating us between oncoming traffic. That only pissed him off even more so he proceeded to get on the highway and follow them for "making him" get into an accident -_- As he got onto the highway, a cop pulled us over. He had witnessed the whole accident. He was real chill, cool, and even joked about my ex "getting excited and rushing to get home" lol! He asked if we were okay and let us off with a warning. My ex used his charms to get out of that one! I stayed pissed for a while that he risked my safety over nonsense.
He fixed it by apologizing repeatedly, showing the utmost respect, not having angry outbursts like that anymore, rubbing my feet with hot oil, picking up Red Lobster for me, and sexing me real good.
