Default Bad drivers/people

So today me and my seven year old son were preparing to park at Safeway when a car full of juveniles zoomed in front of me and threw something at my windshield, cracking it nicely. They drove away laughing. Between oblivious texters/cell phone users, people way too old to drive, and morally questionable jerk bags, it's like trying to avoid land mines on the road these days.

I remember when I actually enjoyed driving. Not so much anymore. I also remember doing dumb things when i was young, but never anything like today. They could clearly see i had a little kid, yet they did that. Guess i shoukd be glad they didnt shoot me considering this is Cali. A few people here have asked me why I'm so untrusting of people, it's because of my years dealing with people like today. I'll never understand that Idiocracy mentality. Sorry for the rant, just felt compelled to share.

I drive a GT-R and have a .380 in the center console.

I'd love to see some kid try that with me

I hope you and your son were okay.
The most important rule about driving is that everybody else is an idiot.

I've crashed four cars in my lifetime so I don't really drive anymore. I'm a horrible driver and I won't ever deny that

Please tell me what you would do?

OP, driving is getting so bad nowadays, but that is ridiculous. People who do that are just failures in life. No reason to randomly do that.

I have a CHL. I wasn't implying I'd shoot someone. But if they're capable of breaking my window I don't know what else they're capable of. I'd rather be safe than dead

That's more like it haha, because you kinda implied shooting someone (there are people out there who take their freedom a little too far). And I agree, if someone is capable of being that stupid, who knows what they can do. I try to keep calm on the road because you never know.

Yeah we are ok, Ty for asking Ziveus 101. My little man didn't even notice it happen. Luckily for them, I would never risk my son or my freedom to chase those idiots. I would sure like to slap them around a little though with no consequences. The Hulk inside me is angry for that, but I use my rage for good only.

I have to call myself out for nearly rear-ending someone today. Their taillights were out, but I was still following too closely. A quick swerve into the turn lane, and all was good.

A 1/2 inch Breaker Bar and a nice knife are all that are needed. Or a baseball bat. That worked pretty well for me against a couple of non rural white males...
