So I was challenged to a fight by what seemed to be a unstable, quite possibly under the influence sh!t-bag tonight. He stepped out of his car after cutting me off because I, and I quote, "f'ckin cut him off." Interestingly, I had 'right of way' so his reasoning for his actions was complete sh!t. Anyways, I was so shocked by this guy's behavior I just sat in my car looking at him, speechless. Normally, I would have taken his offer like an immature kid and either gotten my a$$ beat or pounded him out. I have never experienced such road rage from anyone ever in my life until today. When he asked, "So you wanna fight?", I just smiled at him. In actuality, I was more afraid of him trying to damage my car, if he did try to charge at me, moreso than him beating me into a bloody mess. I even thought he was going to get back in his car and pull out a gun. After discussing this bizarre occurrence with a good buddy, I began wondering if, somehow, I got arrested for fighting, would this have affected me professionally, during and after dental school? Could my acceptance be taken away for something like this? Could this have made it more difficult for me to practice as it would have been on my record? I know, its so high school, or even grade school, but I keep thinking about this incident because I'm not one to back down from sh!t and I feel like I pussed out like a chump, as my buddy kept telling me . But it was a real awakening experience, in the sense that 99.9% of the time, walking away is the smartest thing to do. However, I feel as though I can no longer be called a man.
