Ok, so I live in this rural town with a really big tourist draw during summer. We have a lake, a river where we host the world cup of white water rafting, and a lot of mountains for dirt bike riding etc. It's also really pretty woodlands so we get a lot of campers and hikers. We also get a lot of bad fucking drivers.

I was driving to work today, and a guy about fifty yards ahead of me puts on his left blinker, slows to a stop, and then starts to go left. I had plenty of room for him to go and myself to pass on the right. He got totally in the other lane, realized that it was a do not enter, pulls back into my lane, and stops to figure out which way to go. My front drivers side tire was going flat to begin with, and I had this funky bubble starting up in the sidewall of my drivers side rear tire. So I lock 'em up, skid and swerve, and end up stopping a few inches behind him. He finally went left and I thought "fuck, there went those tires," so I went left as well to see if I had blown them. I pulled into the parking lot and got out to check my tires, which were in the same shitty condition they were already in, no damage done. But the guy turned around thinking I'm gonna get in a fight with him. He gets out bein a badass and I was like "shit happens, I just wanted to check my tires, there was a lot of smoke..." So we're lookin over my car and I really want to get this guy, so I say "well, looks like I blew that front tire, it's almost out of air already..." He's still bein a dick about it, sayin it just looks like a slow leak, I'll probably be okay, the tires look bad to begin with. Which was when I "noticed" that there was this huge bubble in my rear tire (from locking it up, of course) so the dude gave me 50 bucks to help me out with getting new tires. I thanked him, got in my car, and thought to myself "yeah, that's what I call asshole tax."

Was that the right thing to do? No. Did it feel good? Damned right.
