When was the last time someone YELLED at you?

It was a cloudy Thursday afternoon here in Los Angeles and I was minding my OWN business driving cross town to pick Treesa up from her work when from outta nowhere a black & white turned the corner behind me at a high rate of speed with their siren blaring and their lights flashing. I instantly freaked out and my ears got really hot, and for one reason or another I slammed on the accelerator and took off just like A BAT OUTTA HELL!!!

But that's when I came to my senses and I immediately took my foot off the accelerator and proceeded to brake as calmly as I could and came to a rather gentle, complete stop, right there in the middle of the street.

My heart was pounding and I started to sweat. Within seconds they stopped a cars length behind mine, and both of the Officers got out of their squad car and started to run towards my car with their guns drawn!

I slapped my hands on the steering wheel and started prayin' that they wouldn't shoot me by accident and or otherwise.

Being in shock, everything strangely but suddenly slowed down, well, except for everything, as it slowed down rather quickly. They continued running, and after what seemed to be a few minutes, they finally reached my car. As one of the Officers ran behind my car and up the driveway of a house that I stopped in front of, the other Officer ran along the passenger's side of my automobile and looked at me and in slow motion yelled, "GET...THE...HELL...OUT...TA...HERE!!!", and being in mid-shock by this time, I thought, "WHAT THE...???", but at the same time, I realized I had no reason (or desire for that matter) to argue with a trained Law Man brandishing his weapon, and so in that stunned moment I slammed my foot back onto the accelerator and that in turn made my tires squeal, and I took off in a blaze of burnin' rubbery glory!

So, I'd have to say, this afternoon.

... no reason to argue with a police officer, but your first reaction when a police car comes behind you with its lights and siren on is to flee???

WTF, dude?

The whole 'accelerator / bat outta hell' action packed moment lasted for about 1 second.

What can I say?

I'm a rebel.

(Actually, for those out there that really know me, understand that I am one Law abiding fellow that sincerely respects the Police in the highest of regards, and admire the many times thankless and life risking job they so courageously do to serve and protect folks like you & me. )

The last time someone really YELLED at me, I didn't think of running. Instead I thought to yell back. Great knee jerk reaction on this one...

Silence and a nasty look is a good way to silence a shouter. Do it right and it's like firing a canon back at a slingshot.

Well, I came into this thread to respond with a "people yell at me daily", but then I got too amused by the fact that the thread was already about cops.

Hey ab!

Thanks for all that you do.

Kitty: I hate it when that happens!

Dr. Poli: You KNOW we've got a few 'snappers' over here on the west side of Dodge too.

Poli: STOP RESISTING!!!

SG: Actually, I got the HELL outta there just like the Officer told me to!

Sorry, but I don't know why, and I didn't stick around to find out.

(FWIW: On the way home, the coast was clear and everything was as normal as could be.)

So, let me get this straight...

You want to 'instruct' the Officer on how to preform his duties?

SPREAD 'EM, LOWLIFE!!!

I was at work and the guy was a lead for my team. He was taking a "hostile" call for me and when I took a step away so I could sit in the chair next to my desk, he snapped his fingers at me and pointed to the floor. You can imagine how well that went over.

I think my husband has yelled at me a few times but he's so passive/agressive, he normally just says something annoying then goes away.

A co-worker yesterday. He's French, and he gets to the shouting stage a lot quicker than an American. We just grin at each other when he starts pacing back and forth, flapping his arms, and yelling obscenities.

THEEK, good thing you aren't Black. You'd be under the jail with several bruises about your head and shoulder area.

No one has yelled at me lately. Usually, if someone yells at me once, they don't get a chance to do it again*. My usual response is to look at them like they are crazy.



*If they are yelling something like "Incoming!" that's a different story, of course.

I've been in depositions where lawyers start yelling at me across the table. I usually start speaking very slowly and softly, something like "let the record show tht Mr. Smith is screaming and pounding the table." That usually shuts them up.

My kids yell at me daily. I think that's their normal speech mode, though.
