Well, never agrue with a fool. Now I know Mark Twain said that.
The Prius Lady (sorry, I probably named the active characters wrong earlier - I guess the Diesel Lady would have been the wife and the Prius Lady would have been the aggressor)...the Prius lady is just a loose cannon.
I've done a lot of research on it after watching that video, and after what happened to me at the bank machine years ago, just out of curiosity. I wrote down lots of stuff on paper, and got the calculator and all that stuff, made an Excel spreadsheet out of it.
The end result that I came to was that 1 person in 396 can have a stressed moment like that, though so totally out of character that even their friends and family wouldn't recognize them at that very moment. It will never likely happen again once they calm down from whatever is bothering them at such an overwhelming level.
One person in 32,513 is like that all the time, all day every day.
So, it's a statistical guess which happened there in the parking lot.
Interestingly, I also determined that 49.6% of all statistics are made up on the spot, just to make whatever story seem more intellectual.
