    When something is not in your control?

    I'm good at it for some thing's but others not so much, biggest one being driving. The thing that annoys me the most so how slow they all are. Going 5-20km under the speed makes me crazy.

    Not the kind of person to ever fight over it, I'm not retarded. Just be nice to not let it bother me so much, enjoy driving but these people make it a grind.

    Did full on lose it yesterday when someone almost caused a crash, lol. Screaming all my big boy words.

    Can't help you,
    I want to kill everyone who drive like asshole and think they are invincible in their car.

    Got out of my car many times in my life
    (At a light or esle)
    To confront a douche driver.
    They always apologized or beg me to stop.

    But look at me...

    I got a roadrage problem tho.

    @Drain Bamage - only driven high once, never again. Had to keep checking I was holding the wheel as couldnt feel my arms.

    @Sonny Qc - ran into a few of them who wanted to pull over to fight. One cos I was tailing him but fuck him driving 60 in an 80 area. I feel your pain though, people are cunts.

    @A.A. Riggs - Again tailing someone doing 90 in the 10p area. The fast lane. They were so angry at me I smiled, blew them a kiss and the bird. The rage was great, lol.

    I've seen enough youtube videos of road rage fights and both participants always look like idiots, and then there's the possibility of either going to jail or getting hilariously knocked out and ending up as a meme. I therefore am not getting involved in any incident unless I have absolutely no other alternative.

    Big boy words, lol. Only time I use the c word is when I'm on my own smacking the horn at some c word who has cut me up. Which considering where I live with the gun culture is probably not a great idea.

    I dunno, honestly, I've never experienced road rage.

    I've witnessed it but it's always seemed like a stupid thing to get all bent out of shape over but I think it's just because I never experience it.

    I mean there's times I'm irked like when people get on a power trip about letting me get into their lane but I'm always under the impression that they are the people with road rage flexing.

    Anyways I hope you find some answers that are more helpful.

    Edit: Maybe, I'm not sure, that's the solution or a solution which is to just operate under the premise that road rage is stupid and that the other people on the road doing stupid shit must be the people with road rage and just sort of roll your eyes. Idk that's what I do. It might work for you too.

    I think its more about controlling what you get upset/passionate about which is no easy feat.

    Through wear and tear and experience. Over time you just simply get tired of caring about certain things: what people think, awkward social situations, confrontation, relationship drama, etc..


    You have to build up a tolerance


    Also imma christian. So things seem minimal in comparison to my faith and God, Thats what helps me

    I try to imagine an old lady driving, maybe even my grandma who I loved dearly... or that the person is mentally disabled.

    Fart as hard as you can, every time. No exceptions.

    You'll be shocked at how how big of a difference this makes.

    There’s a good book you should read.

    It’s called the six pillars of self esteem

    Realize they don't care about you, so you'd be a loser to care about them.

    @dc007 - how old is old cos I'm 38. Then again I've always hated slow people with no self awareness

    @PhitePhan - old people always get a pass. Now unless 2 thirds of the drivers have disabilities it's something else.

    @hohner - as funny as farts are I dont have that control over my anus to fart on command.

    @Garnet_StrongerThanYou - how does it relate to self esteem?

    @GSP_37 - that has helped me sometimes. Problem is its daily and non stop so it's hard. If it were a once in awhile thing it wouldnt get to me so much.



    Agreed with you all road rage is stupid. Lucky where I live it's very uncommon and no guns. Usually I'm not trying to start anything or actually engaging with these people, it's just frustrating me and I'm boiling.

    For me, being a supreme Sherdogger, I try to keep in mind, I'm far more successful than the avg fucktard I cross paths with while driving. The avg person could never come close to my level in their wildest dreams.
