Aggressive driving on the Autobahn

On the Autobahn just now, I moved to the left to make room for cars entering from the right. At the same time, a BMW raced up behind me. I accelerated to pass the car to my right – and the BMW zipped into the space I'd made, gunned past me, and zipped back into the left lane. All that's normal aggressive Autobahn driving – but then the BMW driver sprayed windshield-wiper fluid for several seconds, and the spray covered my windshield. Revenge for my slowness? But my revenge was seeing the BMW slow way down at the next exit – all that aggressiveness for a few seconds of advantage that were quickly lost. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 28 November)
