seriously i generally don't go out looking for fights, and i have no problem offering smiles to people unless there likely to take it the wrong way :)
but my anger does creep out occasionally, especially when i am a front seat passenger, i have passenger rage, and certain drivers on the streets will really annoy me and i cant keep quite, i will point out there stupidity to them which most people wont accept, this results in me being sworn at which then results in me getting even more angrier.
take Saturday afternoon for example, my mother and i where on our way home from visiting a family friend who had recently contributed to the population in the form of a baby boy mashallah, it was an afternoon filled with aaaaaah and ooooohs over the little creature and then off home it was.
we had turned into one of the streets, and there was a blue car in front of us which then decided to stop in the middle of the street un-expectantly which nearly caused us to crash into the back, the reason for this unexpected brake in the middle of the road was due to the fact that the driver spotted a friend walking and decided to have a full on conversation, not caring about causing near accidents.
my mother had to swerve to the side and drive past, and i had my window open so i (politely) asked the driver why she had committed the act of stupidity, and that she could have caused an accident through her carelessness, to which her reply was swearing at me as well as waving her arms above her head and making faces that a pit bull terrier would have found attractive.
my mums reaction was to continue to drive and say 'la7awla wala quwata il billah' and i shook my head, thinking that was the end of that.
no my dear bloggers it didn't end there, the lady was so offended by my pointing out her lack of human skills that she took it upon herself to follow us at the same time beeping her horn repeatedly as well as making her friend stick her head out the window like a siren shouting out more obscenities at us.
i asked my mum to park the car to the side, rummaged around in my bag, pulled out ..........my camera (camera, gun, same thing) and stepped out the car, waited for the crazy lady to drive past and took a picture of her car.
her friend noticed me do this as the car suddenly stopped and the friend came out and shouted 'why you taking pictures for?'
to which i took another picture, which angered her even more.
the driver then decided to grace us with her presence and began swearing at me.
now i can usually keep a cool at anything that's thrown my way but if you swear at me then i instantly see red, i cant stand it.
i asked her, actually i shouted seeing how she was no where near me, to come and say it to my face, this resulted in more swearing and threats to which again i said 'why don't you come over here and say it to my face?
the odd swear word was the result and it ended by her calling me a tosser and getting back into her car, by now she had caused traffic as she had parked in the middle of the road again!!!
silly woman, she had committed the act of stupidity and had the audacity to swear and not only that but follow us in her car!!! see how frustrating that is, some people need to be put on a lease until they know how to behave in society, clearly this woman had social issues, social in the sense that she honestly believed her father owned the streets of Manchester and that gave her the right to behave as she does.
actually i have seen many Muslims do this, stop in the middle of the road to have a conversation with a friend, not caring an atoms worth about other cars who are kept waiting, what sort of message is that to others?
