    I hate people.
    Did you put your hazard lights on? This usually helps.

    Couldn't find them.

    I just don't see how my snail crawl was an invitation to ride my ass, anyway, lights or not. I pulled over soon as I was able.
    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.

    Look at it from another perspective. No one can read your mind and know you're having car trouble. Also, from a pragmatic perspective, you can be ticketed for driving too slow since you're impeding normal traffic flow.

    To be honest with you, I'd probably ride your ass if I had nowhere to go. And then, I'd be flashing my high beams at you and gesturing. But if you had your hazards on, I'd be a lot more patient and find a way around you, possibly even offer some help.

    To be honest, why be a jerk? I can understand if I was driving that slow for a mile or so, but it was only a couple hundred feet. You wouldn't have needed to "find" a way around me, just easily slide to the left and move on.

    I dunno Mae. You failed to use your hazards since you didn't know where they were, which is really piss poor driving practices. It's like going out at night and failing to know where your headlights are, then complaining when people reacted.

    No, it really isn't like that at all. Not being able to see a car at night is a lot different than being able to see a car during the day. My hazards on in broad daylight when I'm pulled over to the side of the road would be like putting a band-aid on top of a cast.

    Since most urban streets and many highways have street lights, anyone can see cars without headlights.

    Anyways, I'm not going to continue arguing with you. We both know you failed to properly communicate with other drivers and experienced repercussions. While everyone has the right to complain about anything, much like what you experienced with not using your hazards and driving 25 miles below the speed limit, you're going to experience consequences of people calling you out on your behaviour.

    I would have gone around you without even taking my foot off the gas. Nothing slows down a Jaguar.
    Cheers, Mae.

    I would have pulled over to fix your car, get your A/C working again, and then take you out to lunch, cause that's how I roll.
    Smile! Now!

    Some people are like Slinkys.
    Useless, but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    We are the music makers,and we are the dreamers of the dreams.

    End of line.
