This goes out to the agro older bruddah in the pickup on Hana Highway: It’s actually because you tried to force your way in at the merge just past Haleakala Highway that I don’t believe you were entitled to any courtesy. And just because I decided to exercise my right of way, that doesn’t mean you get to drive the next several miles screaming, flipping me off, tailgating and flashing your brights at me (in the daytime). All you succeeded in was getting yourself more worked up and likely scaring the crap out of the young kid sitting on your front seat. I’m typically one of the most aloha drivers out there, but when you tried to be Da Bull, I decided to show you that you’re not. Fortunately, I have a rational brain, not an animal brain, so when you pulled over as if to start a fight, I calmly drove by and continued to enjoy another beautiful day in paradise.
