I agree with both of these lol, but the 30 minutes early routine seems best

Definitely just leave earlier to catch an earlier train.

Or just slash her tires. She'll get the message.

When I get to order the m3, throw in one driving lesson. Goldfinger's driving school of calmness and niceness would be needed here. As a trade, I can give you bat shit crazy road racing bitch seminar. Naturally in Finnish, so no words would be needed from you (Finnish men don't speak)

Either way I can almost guarantee that if you confront her she will drive a bit more polite/aware for at least the next drive
This is most likely what I am bound to do next. I think that even though she infuriates me I'm sure that I can keep my $hit together and talk nicely with her.

It sounds good, but I already leave my house at 5:14am, any earlier is not something that's going to happen. And I'd just be hanging out with the scary people who "live" at the train station for 30 minutes more.. . I value my life . Good idea though, for normal hours.

Number 2 may be a good one.

Maybe you could catch a later train?

I think at this point you'd probably benefit most from moving closer to where you work, or working closer to where you live. I know that's probably not realistic but a big commute + train everyday is severely demoralizing, not to mention expensive.

Later train would probably be better.

I enjoy my commute, except for the driving with this idiot part. I live in a nice tourist town on the river and work in NYC. To me, I get the best of both worlds every single day. I can work from home most of the time, but I'd rather go into the office. It's not for everybody though, I agree.

Buy a unregistered lemon and perform a PIT maneuver. She will never want people behind her again.

Not a good plan but thinking of it made me smile

I would leave 10 mins earlier just to get there before her.

However, I'm in the complete opposite situation as you are. There’s this beautiful women driving another e90 that can’t keep her eyes off of me and I’m about to pull a U-Turn and chase her down…

You are right, it's RT 29. There used to be passing zones, but they took them away on the 1 lane part.


I have to say that writing this and seeing All of the great and funny suggestions helped today when I rode home "with" her. I just kind of laughed when she cut the pick up truck off where it went down to 1 lane instead of getting mad like usual.

Thanks all!

Usually I am the most mellow driver out there, people don't bother me and I am not usually in a hurry, but just seeing this one "Volvo lady" or her car's lights in the distance absolutely turns me into Satan. Unfortunately she takes the same 2 trains as I do and must live in my area. I've alternated my time by +/- a few minutes to avoid her, but I am stuck behind her at least 3 days a week.

Where it's two lanes she will drive recklessly to cut everybody off so she can be in front of the line. But then she slows down to 5-10 MPH UNDER the 45 MPH speed limit. She has a daily "parade" backed up at least 20 cars long but it's crystal clear in front of her.

The 1 lane 16 mile stretch is a no-passing zone, but I've passed her anyway (she accelerated but I figured she would and was ready). I figure it's 4 points for passing but it's also 4 points for tailgating, so I take my chance when I can do it relative safely. I know it's stupid, but I'm telling you, she gets me so when I am stuck behind her! I don't take her personally because there's no way she knows every car I drive, and she always drives the same way.

I'm torn between:
a). trying to get over my anger towards her and just ignore her and find my Zen (I've been trying for 6 years, no kidding)
b). cutting her off into a ditch laugh and giving her the finger
c). confronting her at the train station with something like "I'm sure you're a nice person, but you drive like a dick" and see how that goes.

Any suggestions for me if you've made it this far?
Most people don't know they're driving slow but this cleary shows that's she's a b*tch. She knows exactly what she's doing.

When I drive slow I move to the slow lane and if people pass me while I'm driving slow, accelerating on purpose is just a b*tch move.

Funny! It would have been okay though, not everybody likes every one with

I'm surprised this is the worst I've said, seeing how I'm replying from an iPhone 5S

If I had to pick a "like", it would be the S85 powered M6

Oh, and fuck the haters...
