Reshare from a reddit question:
What are some aggressive things your partner has done that made you leave them?

My answer... from college, a million years ago, but I still remember it:
I had a boyfriend who was fairly disrespectful to me but I didn’t really realize what a jerk he was until I noticed his driving. He’d floor it all the time for no real reason. The last straw was the night I got nervous because he was driving in a movie theater parking lot with lots of pedestrians and I asked him to drive slower, I was like hey there’s little kids everywhere between these cars. His response was something like “well their stupid parents might learn to watch them!”

I said nothing else, then got angry, when he dropped me off back at my house I burst into tears and screamed at him and after that fight we were done.

Omg, yes. I had a boyfriend once who would "angry drive" to show me when he was pissed off with me (like if we'd just had a fight, or I had refused to do something he wanted me to do) and it would make me feel so unsafe. Flooring it, braking at the last minute, being really aggressive, acting like he didn't care if we crashed. I would ask him to please not drive like that with me in the car because it made me uncomfortable but he would just do it more.

I should've broken up with him a lot sooner than I did.

And rightly so.

Interesting... driving certainly brings out the most aggressive and least forgiving aspects of my personality.

Yeah, sometimes it's the little things that give a person away. He wasn't my boyfriend, just a guy I had been dating, but I stopped after he snapped his fingers at a waitress. People aren't usually disrespectful to just certain people. If not at first, but it's bound to come around.
