Chicken Finger

Unless the rules of driving have changed and nobody informed me, doesn't one slow down and then stop upon approaching an intersection when the light is red? This is just what I was doing when you came up behind me in your white van and proceeded to honk your horn at me. I turned around in order to get a good look at the idiot who would do this and, I might add, to give you my look of utter disbelief. This is when you decided to repeatedly give me the "single-digit salute," along with another crude gesture. Since I am a female and you a male, I didn't wish to possibly endanger myself, so I refrained from doing something stupid and just smiled at you. Lucky for you I wasn't some gun-toting NRA member. I can only hope that the next unsuspecting driver who pisses you off is.
