Apologies in advance for the length of this story, but I had a very odd day yesterday and feel the need to share. 

On may way to the dentist, which is a block from my house, my fiance calls me crying about a busted water main that is buckling the street in front of our house. (Our neighborhood has been saddled with a number of long-running infrastructure projects that result in stacks of culverts, heavy equipment and closed roads burdening houses for weeks, and she pictured that ruining our home-hosted wedding party.)

I park at the dentist and walk home to check on her and figure out what's going on. On my way up the street, I walk past a river of water that becomes a trickle by the time I'm at our house and confer with the fellas working on the crater in the street. I'm told the main and street will be fixed in no more than 8 hours. I console Brandi and explain this to her, then head to the dentist.

Literally a block from my house, some asshole runs a stop sign and nearly runs me over in a crosswalk. I flip him off and he screeches to a halt in the middle of the street. Big fella gets out and starts screaming at me, car running, door open, middle of the street. He reaches for my neck with both hands and I put him on the ground and hold him there, asking if he is ok (really didn't want to hurt him and I had put him down hard and knocked the breath from him). I let him up and walk towards the dentist. He keeps jawing at me and I tell him to eat a dick. That sets him off again and he follows me, threatening to kill me. I ignore him and walk into the dentist for my first appointment with them. They lock the door behind me and ask if I want to call the cops. I demure and say I was simply trying to make a memorable first impression. Almost the whole building heard or saw the exchange and they were all very kind and supportive.

I was able to handle it this time, but the lesson I took away was a reminder that road rage is real and it is best not to provoke people even if they fuck up. Self-driving cars can't come soon enough.

Surprised you didn't call the PD and file assault charges. A few days in the slammer with the potential for this guy to have a permanent criminal record usually sets them straight. Usually.

I once challenged a 50 year old BMW driver to a duel with an umbrella
That sounds very Belgian.

I was a part of the Lawless Denim wave, when it was a "thing", and got ripped off quite a bit of money...

Well, today, I got a check in the mail for $596.50!!! The class action lawsuit final completed, and customers are being reimbursed!

Justice is so sweet!!!!!

Got mine yesterday...$106.50. Glad this is over and done with.

I once challenged a 50 year old BMW driver to a duel with an umbrella cause he pulled out of a street he wasn't allowed to whilst I was crossing the street, then drove right up to my knees telling me I should look before crossing...

My fuse is shorter than Megatron's dick, so I am proud I didn't jump his hood and kicked his window in... Or as I call it: option B

Post of the year so far ^

Very cool. My guess is that it leaves a blue streak on anything it touches though.
Think it, be it.

Indeed it does, lol!

I'm ballsy, but not THAT ballsy, lol!  :D :D :D
I sent it here https://www.pigeontreecrafting.com/

He did a great job. I've also sent other items as well (IHSH-58, IH-666S-PQ and a PBJ XX-013).
When Christophe saw it on IG, he told me he tried it himself a few years back, but the leather turned out dry, stiff and crunchy. I'm not sure what PTC did differently, but the jacket came back to me just as supple as when it left.

Are you putting it up for sale?

Yup... Once I decide to stop being lazy and post it, along with a slew of other items...

I've gone through an adult growth spurt (Drinking too much beer and gaining weight), so I'm gonna toss some items from the wardrobe.
