I got assaulted yesterday, road rage. I turned left onto a street that was two lanes wide on one side. In Ontario, it's law that you have to turn into the closest lane to you, then change lanes if you need to be in the right lane or something. I turned, signaled and there was some woman in a white SUV that had turned into the right lane beside me. Traffic was heavily congested up ahead and knew I wouldn't get in if I didn't move now, so I pulled into the lane as she accellerated like the crazy asshole she was. She laid on the horn and in response I did something I've never done; I flipped her off, which was obviously a bad move but I assumed it was just a soccer mom or something (who I'm fucking tired of, people with children in SUVs or minivans drive like fucking maniacs).
I was wrong, she followed me into the Canadian Tire parking lot. She rolled down her window, there was a pretty big dude which I assume was her boyfriend in the passenger seat. We exchanged a few words, where I told her she was wrong and sshe repeatedly called me names as her boyfriend did the same. After a few seconds of this she got out of the car and her boyfriend said "you're in for it now." I didn't really seem to understand what was going on, I guess, I didn't react at all. It might be a bit sexist, but if it was a man I would've rolled the window up, I guess the instinctual part of me didn't see her as a threat, but she was. She walked over, punched me in the face, knocking my glasses off in the process, got back into her car and drove off. Because of this I wasn't able to catch her license plate well. There were two people that saw, aside from my girlfriend that was next to me. One was ex-MP and stayed with me until the cop arrived (Which took a fucking hour btw, someone could've shot up the entire damn parking lot and walked calmly away and they wouldn't have been there in time) and he got the other witness' name and phone number, she had to go. When the cop got there he ran her plates and it was lisenced to a black sudan, which was completely different from what she was driving. He told me he'd call me if he found out anything but since it wasn't the vehicle that I described he may not be able to do anything. The MP said that he knew the woman, she was charged for getting angry at him when he worked at a convenience store for the prices and throwing chocolate milk at him. The plates are probably wrong because either the vehicle is stolen or they missed payments on it or something. Either way, I hope the cops find her so we can charge her. If a random guy in a parking lot in a city of 120,000 people knows she has a record, then she probably has a lot more than just that. I really hope the vehicle IS stolen and she gets put away for some time, people like that shouldn't be on the roads.
That was a long drawn-out paragraph. Anyways, it didn't ruin my fantastic day with my girlfriend yesterday, my split lip didn't hurt at all and still doesn't. I think it scared her a lot more than me. It was just a stupid experience and people like that should not be around other people.
