    or they may see it as a challenge. As they get out of their shouting 'so you think you're hard then'. I've lost count of the times civilians have done this to military personnel.

    I agree. I find that rank and status in traditional martial arts invites more negative attention than it discourages. That's one of several reasons that I stay pretty private about it.

    I was driving home from work today and had a guy slam on his brakes and turn his car diagonally blocking the road in front of me. Admittedly i was following him too close however not intentionally i just wasnt paying attention. I drive 2 hours each way to work so i turn on a podcast and kinda zone out listening and driving.
    So when he first stopped in the road i thought he was having a problem so I slowed down and was starting to get out to see if they were ok. Then i realized he was jumping out of his car screaming at me.
    I just pulled my door closed threw the car in drive and drove around him. He punched my passenger side window as I passed and i could see him holding his hand in the rear view as I drove away pretty sure his hand didn't feel good.
    I fell bad for tailgating him but damn dude he needs to relax I wasnt even behind him that long I just turned onto that road so it was for less than 3 miles.
