I honk and think about throwing pennies at them but we're stuck in traffic and it's not like I could drive off or say, "It was that guy" so I just sit and fume and try to think about something else. Podcasts help.

i'm depressed too

Do you not have a cup holder that has random pennies in it?

Also I'm not going to throw a quarter, that's almost half a dollar.

Hey when oncoming traffic flashes their lights at you, what does that mean to you?

Seems that no one knows anymore.

I've tried that as well, never works. The only one I've got to work is turning my turn signal on and off repeatedly to make them turn theirs off. My looking like an insane person somehow gets the idea across.
