How interesting that the change was thrown from an grey F250. We encountered one in Los Alamitos going to the Goodyear there that was playing games with his brakes. A young punk kid that almost caused a huge accident just because he didn't like me calling him a jerk from the passenger side of our vehicle. When someone drives like that, what are you supposed to say--you are driving well?
