Need to vent...

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 30, 2014, 8:15 AM
I absolutely hate self righteous people.  The ones who feel they need to do something because either their supposed morals tell them to or they feel they need to teach an unnecessary lesson.  In the end, they do far more harm and are most likely in the wrong themselves. 

Where's this coming from?  Well, on Thursday I was terminated from my job because a self righteous woman decided she had to teach me a lesson.  What's worse was the main reason I was let go was my now old company wanted to cover their rears.  They did this despite the police finding no evidence and dismissed the woman's claim.  Plus the company's client was never asking for me to be fired, disciplined, or anything else.  They were more amused then concerned. 

Yet, here I am out of a job I loved and had fun doing all because a person wanted to teach me a lesson. 

To sum it up, I was driving into to work to pick up a package when I came upon a school zone.  I slowed down to the school speed limit (yes I actually did.) when I came upon the woman who was driving a SUV.  She had chosen to slow even more below the twenty miles per hour thus forcing me to slow down even more.  I figured she would pick up speed out of the zone so I waited.  Yet when we reached the end of the zone, she chose not to speed up.  When I lightly tapped my horn to alert her to the change in speed, she instead slowed even more.  I mean we were barely doing ten miles per hour.  I was running a bit late and did not have the time to wait while she continued to drive extremely slow.  So when I saw it was safe, I passed her and continued on.  Behind me she chose to speed up and follow me to the client.  Afterword she came to the client and accused me of road rage, yelling and screaming, and endangering her child.  When the client did not believe her story, she went to the police.  While the police never contacted me, it is assumed they never filed a report/investigated due to a lack of evidence.  Then someone mentioned the weird episode to my employer who suspended me then overreacted and fired me. 

I can't believe how much that woman had messed up my life right now.  Beyond now looking for another job, I'm having a hard time focusing on writing.  I'm a bit desolate and unsure what to do now.  On top of that, if I ever meet that woman in person I'm not sure how I would act.  I'm not a violent person and I hope I would take the higher road.  Yet her actions hurt and cost me a good paying job.
