Wow. DH just called me and said that while he was driving today he noticed a white van going very slowly ahead. As he approached, the driver of the van smiled and waved DH ahead, so DH went around and then waved a 'thanks' back to the guy. DH said that the guy was basically crawling along the road (a 70km stretch) and he guessed something was wrong, it looked like he was about to break down or pull over or whatever.
Anyway, DH continued on his way, noticing that the van had began to catch up and had followed him into the carpark of some nearby shops.
DH got out of the car and the van had parked a few spaces up... and this "Big Fijian bloke" (DH's description!) jumps out of his van and approaches DH. Now DH isn't a small man and can handle himself pretty well, but this man was something else!
DH- "What's your problem, mate?"
guy- "If you f-ck with people, you're gonna die".
DH- "What? You waved me through, I waved back at you, what's the problem?"
guy- "Are you ready to die today?"
DH -"You sure it's me, tell me what I did, mate.."
Guy proceeds back to his van, pulls the drivers seat forward and begins rummaging around for something. At this stage DH is thinking, here we go, he's gonna grab a weapon or something.. as the guy continues to tell DH to "get ready to die today".
DH continues with telling the guy he has no clue what he did wrong, tell him what he did... then this guy freaks out and snaps, starts screaming at DH to "eff off, you home now, eff off"!
So DH walks into the shops and the guy drives off. What a freak!!! How sick and scary.
I said to DH, maybe he thought you cut him off? But no, he said he was crawling along, indicated to DH to go around him, even smiled as he waved.
The thing is, we have a "baby on board sticker" as well, whcih obviously made no difference.
Bizarre or what?! *shudder*
Anyone else ever encountered a loony on the road?
