Challenger

Scenario


You're all alone on a Texas highway, driving fifteen miles an hour under the posted speed limit. Visibility is several miles all around you and there's not another vehicle in sight. The windows are down - its a nice day. Suddenly, I approach as if from nowhere behind you. Because you're doing 50 in a 65, I indicate, move into the empty oncoming traffic lane, downshift, accelerate, and pass you.

You get very angry.

Why?
