    I was in a long McDonald’s drive-through this morning and the young lady behind me leaned on her horn because I was taking too long to place my order.

    “Take the high road,” I thought to myself. So when I got to the first window I paid for her order along with my own.

    The cashier must have told her what I'd done, because as we moved up she leaned out her window and waved to me and mouthed "Thank you.", obviously embarrassed that I had repaid her rudeness with a kindness.

    But when I got to the second window I showed them both receipts and took her food too.

    Now she has to go back to the end of the line and start all over.

    So don't honk your horn at old people...you never know what may happen.

    I am a little ashamed to say that I too enjoy the feeling when I'm able to return a perceived insult into a gotcha. My whole related clan, living and dead, have practiced the art of dope slaps and some tales are legendary. But everyone was done face to face more or less. Enhances the pleasure of righteous retribution and generally eliminates the possibility of a misfire. My own willingness to engage Christian hecklers at the Mormon Pageant comes to mind. Mormons were being polite but I'm not a Morman.

    My best one-actually two. My wife still chortles about this. To set the scene, my future wife and I were just engaged and were on a trip Back East to meet each other's relatives-and "friends". We were invited to two parties:

    At the first party her friends had married and joined the elite-liberal crowd and were going out of their way to impress each other with their political correctness and how morally superior they were. Anyway during the barbeque dinner my fiancé reminded me that I needed to get more meat for hamburger that upcoming hunting season. Conversation stopped. One of fiancé's "friends" said, "I forgot to tell you, Harold hunts!" The last word dripped with scorn. Conversation stopped cold. Then, a professor at Brown Univ. stepped in with, "Why do you hunt Harold, does it make you feel like a predator to kill your own meat?' I pointed to the hamburger he had half consumed and said, "Probably just like it makes you feel like a scavenger eating meat somebody else has killed!" End of conversation.

    A week later we gathered at another house, same "friends" but this time in Newport, RI. Fancy home in a fancy neighborhood. I was pretty much ignored (fine by me). Towards the end of the evening the hostess brought around some rather expensive French wines on a silver tray. When she got to me she hit me with the line. "Would you like some wine Harold or do you people out there (Wyoming) drink wine?" Brown U. Prof then helpfully asks, "Perhaps you'd prefer bourbon?" I calmly stated that I drank wine. Then I picked up a mostly full bottle of what I hoped was the most expensive stuff, popped the cork and chugalugged half the bottle, put the cork back in, wiped my mouth with my shirt sleeve and put it back on the tray. I grabbed my fiancé and we headed out the door to the hostess's cry, "That cowboy! Than cowboy!"

    Years later my now wife confided that that was when she knew she really wanted to marry me!

    Well, I wasn't an old person then but they were a couple of my better moments.

    If I hear of a better example of Christian values and "turning the other cheek", I'll certainly let you all know.

    You, Sir, are in inspiration.

    I just wish that our politicians could do the same to each other in Australian Parliament and overseas, so that we can find a way to show the Chinese Leadership that we mean them no harm.
    The Chinese leaders have slapped tariffs on Australian barley (80% no less!) and have banned exports from four of our biggest meat producers. They have also issued a "warning" advising that tourists and students should neither travel nor study here, whilst their media speak of Australia as "Like a piece of chewing gum on the bottom of the Chinese "boot"

    The Chinese are really starting to flex their economic muscles in the Pacific. If I'm not wrong, I think they have their sights set on a "Great East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere" of their own. And countries like Australia, that have close defence ties with the US, are going to suffer the most.

    It is personal examples like yours, Sir, that we must do more of...all of ue...

    I salute you!

    Guess one of my top 5 was a new neighbor. Slightly built young nerdy tech guy and his wife. Our 10 acre lots ran together not at the road but in the back. Swampy brush and trees. Behind that was 1000 acres of old farmland the town recently bought and was now posted. Well this guy needs to mark his lot line and puts a posted sign 50' onto my property at the back on the access trail I'd cut to the farmland. I put a note on his posted sign that said "Welcome to the neighborhood, lets have coffee". So a few days later the sheriff pulls in to my driveway. He shows me my note and said the neighbor was accusing me of trespassing. Well, I seem to have a way with cops. I apologized to him for having to waste his time on such petty stuff. We chat. He leaves after telling me not to worry about the town land being posted. "No one's. going to go out there and throw you off". So, it's game on. Internet tells me the new neighbor is into fantasy board games. Didn't know there was such a thing. I find out his favorite game is The Settlers of Catan. I get a 4x4 piece of plywood and plant it obscuring his posted sign. His side painted dayglo orange, my side is cammo. I put a 8x11 sign on the dayglo side. LEAVING CATAN - WELCOME ALL TRAVELERS.

    Couple of weeks later he took down his posted sign. He never did come by for coffee.

    I'm so glad we don't have to deal with crap like that down here
    The smug SOBs like you had to contend with are usually greatly outnumbered down here and tend to keep their pie-holes shut.

    "You're 50 years too late."
    not about you 12.
    pretty sure Mr.Timex (GRW) asked 42 to marry, because he was op with the entertaining story.
    embarrassing to be sure.

    I'm fond of saying " I've never learned anything useful that I didn't screw up the first time."

    Just at the grocery store. I watched a big-ass pickup driver push a grocery cart out of the space he wanted. And into a handicapped space. So I waited until he went into the store and then I parked six carts around his truck.

    I wasn't exactly old, but...

    When my eldest was a still a baby, we were in Wally-world when she more than adequately filled up her diaper with a, uh, soupy mess. My wife finished shopping while I carried my child out to the car to change her, where we were parked adjacent to an empty handicapped spot .

    As I was about to finish getting the clean diaper on, a young,self-important stud wheeled into the handicapped spot, got out, and sauntered into the store. I finished securing the diaper and got out to give a careful look at the boy's car. There was no handicapped placard or anything else denoting he should be parked there, but I did note, and this is important, he left his window down.

    About then, my wife rolled the buggy to the car and we put the bags in the car. As we backed out of the parking space, I was sitting in the passenger seat. The opportunity had presented itself, so I took it and threw the diaper through the open window into the offending punk's car. Of course, I had loosened the tabs a good bit and it was a "soupy" diaper, so you can use your imagination as to the outcome.

    He should not have parked in the handicapped spot when he wasn't handicapped...

    Reminds me of when I was in a golf league and a foursome of mobsters teed off ahead of us every week. A 30someting guy in a long green Cadillac would pull into the handicap spot and pop the trunk open. His 3 "soldiers" would hurry off the putting green and get the Made guy's bag and shoes out for him. Sign of respect. They played from the longest tees and couldn't drive the ball that far but we weren't going to suggest they move up. They never spoke with anyone outside their own group. Watching them was like watching The Sopranos.
