A MOTORIST on the M5 believes himself engaged in a battle of minds and cars with another driver who has entirely failed to notice him.
Joe Turner and his BMW X5 are fixated on a red Skoda Fabia which aggressively overtook him 35 miles earlier, and thinks the two are entangled in wordless vehicular conflict despite the lack of any corroborating evidence.
Mr Turner said: “Outside lane, slip in behind this Merc, overtake and hah! Who’s got the upper hand now, arsehole?
“I clocked him in my rear-view mirror at first. Way too close and pathetically desperate to get past me. That pissed me off, but it wasn’t until I got stuck behind that Prius and he overtook that he properly got into my head.
“You could see by the way he was driving he thought he was all superior and dominant. Lording it over me as he whizzed by in the outside lane. Loving every second of it. We’ve been playing mind games ever since.
“I should have left three junctions ago but we’re past that now. He needs to know who the daddy is.”
Skoda driver Martin Bishop said: “Black BMW? Haven’t registered his existence, sorry. I’m too busy with this cocky arsehole in the white Merc.”
