    There I was, going into Specs Christmas Eve for some last minute Christmas cheer. I'm moving down the one-way lane in the right direction in my big'ol pickup truck when the big black Escalade comes in the wrong way and expects me to move. I really couldn't go anywhere and simply shrugged in a "What do want me to do?" kinda way. Well Mr. Badass, with his wife and children pulls up next to me and says "$#@& you, redneck cracker!" I had my wife and 9 year old daughter in the car and simply took a deep breath and parked.

    He backed up I guess to confront me again, for what reason I do not know and I just moved deliberately into the store. I didn't want the situation to escalate and by the way I was carrying. I glanced over my shoulder as he peeled out of the parking lot squealing his tires and all I could mutter to myself was "Impressive".

    I really didn't feel a sense of dread and had no intention of escalating the matter, afterall my family was there. I'm wondering if it was because I was carry that I felt a sense of preparedness. I couldnt believe the ridiculous behavior of this person, and on Christmas Eve to boot. Any thoughts?

    You did the right thing by ignoring a rude and perhaps insane idiot. He will continue to look for trouble until he finds it. When that happens I hope his next victim is prepared and there are no security cameras around.

    Funny, I was also carrying in spec's for a last minute bit of holiday cheer.

    Good call on going way beyond the call of social accountability to be polite. I also find myself doing way more than I "should" to just let things go or defuse confrontation. But, you know, it's especially annoying when it's the police trying to start the fights. Sigh.

    You did the right thing! Even without your family would you have done things differently? Sometimes you just have to put your ego/pride behind you and be the better man and walk away like you did. So was the thug correct are you a redneck cracker? LOL! J/K!!!

    My thoughts are that this is exactly WHY you were smart in keeping it from esclating. ;)
