Handled just like Rocky would have

I almost got in a fight on my run this morning. I was doing 5 miles with 3 at pace. My pace started at a mile marker right beofore you cross a road in a townhouse development. As I was approaching the street a cheesy Monte Carlo painted like a wannabe Nascar was coming to a rolling stop. I had a full head of steam, so I kept going. (and as a side note I have 25 runs this year on the same trail and about 22 of them crossed that street and I've never once stopped.) When I was about 10 yards past the road I hear "HEY ASSHOLE! HOW ABOUT STOPPING?" I turn and Monte had rolled down his window and was yelling at me. I yellled back "You're the one with the stop sign!", He yelled back "Yeah, and I stopped, you didn't!" I yelled "That's because I don't have a stop sign, you have to stop for me ASSHOLE!" Then I ran like the wind. Scared at every crossroad for the rest of my run that he would be waiting for me to kick my ass.

LOL! If you are going to talk the talk you have to be able to dish out a right cross or at least a left hook. Hope he's not waiting there for you tomorrow. Good luck!

I'd totally make sure I was at the same place at the same time tomorrow so you'll be assured to see him again. Then act all nice and wave like you're friends. That will confuse the bejesus out of him.

That would never happen in Texas. Actually, we would just forego the asshole comment and try to run you down. We're hardcore like that. I think you should draw a diagram of this incident.

Good thing he didn't chuck a can of long-cut chewng tobacco at you.

That's what stop signs are for: cars, not pedestrians. That guy was an idiot. Just bring a shotgun with you and meet him there again. When he says "boo," shoot out his tires.

Or a machete.
