Road rage is already cringe-worthy behavior, but this lady takes it to another level.
We've all had our share of bad days where we wake up on the wrong side of the bed, but that's no excuse to start cussing at strangers in traffic. It seems like that's exactly what this Denver woman did one morning, though, and the recipient of her outburst quickly humbled her.
The person she yelled at filmed the incident and posted it to a TikTok account that's since been removed, but not before the video circulated on Twitter. With almost 700,000 views from this single tweet, it's safe to say her bad behavior has gone somewhat viral. You can watch it below, but please note that there's some profanity in this video.
This lady in Denver yelled at a driver with out of state tags to get out of town.— Rex Chapman🏇🏼 (@RexChapman) December 15, 2020

Well, she clearly wasn't expecting that response and was quick to apologize, albeit somewhat sarcastically. Her behavior might seem surprising, but anyone who lives in Colorado or has visited probably knows that the locals can be kind of ... passionate about being from the area. "Transplants," or people who move to Colorado from out of state, aren't always greeted with open arms.
While some of the reasons for feeling this way are incredibly valid, like the rising cost of living and gentrification, it can clearly lead to some confrontational moments. As this example shows, you just never know someone's circumstances. Next time, this lady might think twice before jumping to conclusions and taking out her frustrations on a random person.
As always, the replies to the tweet are worth sharing:
I think these folks would like to have a talk with her about out-of-towners ruining the place. pic.twitter.com/vEKUT3o7Mz— YeOldeHistoryTeacher (@cliffb714) December 15, 2020
She does need her coffee and a nap. Her day is not starting off very well.— @T1nA_ (@T1na_) December 15, 2020

Angrily yelling at people for no reason? That woman is Twitter, minus the apology at the end.— Kraig Withakay (@KraigWith_A_K) December 15, 2020
That’s a neat trick. Accelerating and back pedaling at the same time.— James Lee (@jameslee617) December 15, 2020
I moved to Colorado from Atlanta last summer and I’ve never felt more unwelcome anywhere and I’ve traveled extensively. I have been “interrogated” by most natives I’ve met as if I ruined their state. I mean, give me a year or two, I need to build up to ruining it.— Shannon Dew (@southernshred) December 15, 2020
I've been in Denver for nearly 50 years. I am personally apologizing for this woman's despicable, uncalled for, behavior. She doesn't represent the Denver I know and love.— Ceil Buckner (@CeilieKayOGM) December 15, 2020

This article has been amended to change the phrase, "Out-of-State Driver", in the headline to simply say, "Driver in Traffic."
