In our fifth (and extra-explicit) installment of The Seven Deadly Sins, we discuss road rage (and “Carma”), catharsis, destructotherapy, “going postal,” the true story of the Count of Monte Cristo, the Hulk, Christian Bale and other purveyors of WRATH!
Music: “Uuugh!” by Xavier Cugat
Road rage stories from you – our listeners:
Chaz L I used to get horrilbe road rage years ago. I’d do the typical stuff like pull up beside a person, give em the bird while screaming obsensities and blasting my horn. I followed one guy home, smashed my car into his mailbox and sped off, but one day my speedometer broke. I couldn’t see how so slow(or fast) I was driving, and all my anger vanished. By the time I got it fixed my road rage had vanished. Yay!
Will A Not really a story, but a number of years ago, during the “freedom fries” era, I forced a dude off the road for having a “France sucks” sticker on his bumper. He wasn’t hurt, or anything, but it still probably wasn’t the coolest thing to do. He shook his fist at me in a “get off my lawn” sort of way, though, which made it awesome.
Adam J Best story i have for road rage is about my cousin. If he was cut up badly or really put in danger by the other driver he would follow them home and shout at them or if they got away he would drive down the same road at the same time for weeks looking for them.
