    I have a few simple rules about right of way . . . I will always back off when confronted with anything that might hurt us.

    I will always back up when confronted with anything I would be able to hit without fear of getting hurt because the hassle is not worth it.

    Basically, I always let others have the right of way . . . I might, however, send a malediction their way, usually invoking the explosion of their hemorrhoids.
