Trucker pulled me over! Very Scary!
This afternoon, I passed a slow moving 18 wheeler that immediately started honking and flashing his lights aggressively.
I was concerned that my car might have been on fire or something. So I pulled over to the shoulder after about a mile of this & He pulled in behind me.
He was out of his truck and almost to the rear of my van by the time I opened my door "WEIRD" I noticed no smoke and yelled "is something wrong" (I was getting out to check the car when his haste to get up to my car scared me).
The man continued toward me more slowly and said "no, nothings wrong, smiling, he calmly said "I pulled you over because you're such a pretty lady".... I slamed the door, threw it in gear and took off.
I dialed 911 and they were notifying the state troopers. This happened on a remote stretch of interstate on the new 840 exchange with very little traffic. Oddly, I would have never pulled over, but the trucker was so aggressive in his honking and flashing lights and I felt a false sense of safety because it was a double-trailer Fed-ex truck.
He was creepy! Don't get me wrong I have dear friends who are truckers. But this guy was weird! I don't scare easily, but He really scared me.
My question is, do you think this guy is dangerous? I am a sales rep and spend a lot of time on the roads and have never had this happen before.... BTW, I can't imagine how he could have seen into my vehicle to have an opinion of me when I passed him as it has a high top.
Let me know what you think.
