Asshole in an Audi

I was driving home on Santa Monica Blvd. and a guy in a new Audi A5 passes me on the right which is not a lane then cuts in front of me before he hits the parked cars.

This shit happens all the time but it’s one of the biggest douche moves. And since I frequently have road rage, I decided to teach him a lesson.

I merged left and waited for an opportunity to pass him. Fortunately, the left lane did go faster than his lane at some point and I did nudge ahead of him for a second. I made my move.

I signaled, of course, and cut in front of him. Then I slowed down equal to the car next to me so he’d be boxed in. I could see in the rear view mirror that he was going nuts. He swerved left but that car was going too slowly. He merged right behind me again. I literally laughed out loud at all the frustration I was causing this guy.

We got the light at Westwood and he managed to pull up next to me. So I rolled down my window and motioned for him to do the same. He did.

I said, “Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?”

He said, “Go fuck yourself.”

The light changed and he literally burned rubber.

Does this count as talking to strangers?

    I don’t know if it’s technically “talking” to strangers, but it is clever.

    Did you have that line ready the whole time, or did the Grey Poupon pop in your head at the last second?

    Maybe things are different in LA, but that sounds like a great way to get your head blown off.

    I’m English (and not so much down with pop culture) can you explain what the grey poupon reference?

    Wow. Just wow.

    I’ve been reading your blog in every spare moment for the past few days from the very beginning, and I’ve REALLY enjoyed it… to the point where I both want to be up to date, but also don’t want to have to wait for new posts!

    I felt I had to comment on this after watching the YouTube link. The thought of you saying this to the Audi guy had me chuckling for some time! Inspired.

    Anyway, keep up the good work, no doubt I’ll be bang up to date by tomorrow at the latest.
