What is the most absurd thing a motorist has told you?

Cyclists always have one or two stories about their experiences while riding on the road. Have you had a motorist use any F-word on you while you are on the road?

An elderly couple stopped me during an organized ride and told me that I wasn't legally allowed to ride my bike on the road.

They said I had to use the sidewalk.

I laughed and rode off, they followed and forced me to stop with their car.

The man threatened to make a citizen's arrest on me. I returned by explaining that I would disable him if I needed to. He backed off.

I really wouldn't have. I'd of just rode off.
