Less so if said person com

Our preconceived notions are unfortunately confirmed that these gus do want to 'race' for some unknown reason He cops a spray because he's running my wife off her line (and into the gutter) and in the meantime trying to assuage her protests that his behaviour is OK. that trying to get on wheels (aggresively or not) is 'cool'. I then lose my cool because he overtakes me after bein
