Default Road Rage : Me v/s SLK 230

It happened today afternoon.

I was going to stop at a read light when a mad truck on my right side suddenly started right turn and i was very near to his front right wheel.. i tried to take a right turn but my car happened to scrap an SLK 230 standing there...

Now the drama starts..
The guy in the SLK is a mid aged man with cool Sunglasses... comes out of the car and starts abusing me..
note: XX stands for some words i cannot write here due to censorship issues..

SLK: "Tune meri gaari ka satyanaash kar diya hai"
Me: "Scratch to meri gaari me laga hai, aap kyun chilla rahe ho"

SLK: "XX XX ... Jine ka mera Shisha hai utne ki teri Gaadi nahi hai XX"
Me: "Bhai sahab apne aap ko control kijiye Gussa mereko bhi aa sakta hai"

...
..
this goes on and on until

SLK: "XX XX tu jaanta nahi main kaun hoon..". (picks up his mobile and).. "abhi batata hoon man kaun hoon.. "..
Me: I thought its better to leave the idiot and not to get into any further argument since an SLK can only be driven by three persons in this world: An underworld Don or a politician or a filmstar.. he looked more like the first one...
so as soon as the signal turned green i went away...

I just want to spread this message about Road Rage.. in Delhi its more common... what you can do is not to react to idiots and try to avoid arguments..
Road rage in Delhi has lead to murders in the past.. so better be careful Delhiites..

Good lord, the duffer, needs to call up his daddy to ask him who he is? Hahaha

90% of these guys are showoffs. All show and no go.

Whacked an auto driver for putting a scratch on my Baleno. Had the immense good sense to run after that, hitting the limiter in 1st!

Just his 1st and 2nd line indicates how limited in thinking that idiot must be.

Wise decision, Dceite. No point wasting time, effort, money or mood over negative road incidents.

Dude, looks like you've not seen the recent Wagon R commercials. It's the smart car for smart people - "The smartest choice."

dceite, I think you handled the situation very well. Getting worked up and fighting dosen't really help anyone. Well done!

Well the SLK isnt really a saloon or anywhere close to a big car ....It probably is as long as the Wagon R. And if you get a real richy rich guy driving it which probably he is if he is driving a car like that , then he would probably not care much about making those risky lane changes in traffic.
