Anger Interventions: How to Respond
As soon as you defend, you lose. In so doing, you are making his accusations real, as if they were worthy of rebuttal. Your imperfections are not crimes, and you are not guilty as he charges that you are. You may have violated a county statute, but you are not a guilty criminal worthy of instant extinction. He is not the judge and jury. You can replace your fictitious guilt with the regret that you aren't as perfect a driver as you might wish yourself to be. You require no defense under these battlefield conditions. Do not give him one.
