What is wrong with people today? Seriously!.Iis it my imagination or is civil behavior disappearing society? Is stabbing or shooting someone the first thing people think of when they get into disputes? I just can't get my mind around the fact that someone died because of a dent in a car.

This was probably a gradual escalation. I almost came to blows with a moron a few years ago. I was sitting in my car waiting for my wife to finish a purchase when a car FULL of people pulled in beside me. The driver slung his door open hitting my passenger side door so hard that it rocked the whole car. I made eye contact with said moron while I was exiting to check the damage. He attempted to continue into the store as though nothing happened.

It wasn't my intention to pound the grease out of the idiot until he started denying he hit the car. This of course set me off. If it hadn't been for his wife telling the soon to be hospitalized moron that "if I said he hit the car, he must have hit the car."

Had the incident continued it might have read "Dented Door Leads To Life Long Disabilities." Thankfully I let it go. The dent wasn't the problem. His denial and arrogance were a No-Go for me. All he had to do was apologize and all would have been forgiven.
