WHAT IS & IS NOT ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR WHEN ANGRY

By Luann Nieborg

Ok… let’s define this a little shall we? So everyone has a basic understanding of what is and is not acceptable? This is just my little guideline list for those who are lacking the common sense that was given a snail.

Acceptable:

1.Rubbing to get by someone when trying to take a position during a race (come on… that’s why your out there). Just don’t let it get out of hand. You can usually get by someone with out needing to send them into the wall.

2.Nudging the guy in front of you who has no idea that he is slowing you down during the race (but then who infront of you doesn't know they are slowing you down). Again… you can usually get by someone with out needing to send them into the wall.

3.Talking trash and boasting… in your own area or on the message boards (with in reason guys) this is fine. We all have egos and they can get a little on the large side. (Must be where that extra right side weight is coming from.)

4.Yelling… in your own pit area or in the car (but lets try to leave the other guys/gals mother out of it shall we? That’s just rude).

5.Screaming… well… look above.

6.Ranting… I guess these all go together.

7.Beating your head, hand, fist… whatever on your steering wheel… well if you must hit something in frustration I guess this is as good as anything (but that’s got’ a hurt).

8.Kicking your tires, door panel of your car, jack (the thing that lifts the car not the guy). Mind you this is all YOUR equipment so if you feel better breaking your foot on it or breaking it… have at it.

9.Jumping up and down like a freak on a volcano vent while yelling, screaming or ranting… well… if this helps you release the anger… be our guest.

Please note… these things are all right if done in YOUR OWN AREA/PIT! Please don’t do them on the track, in someone else’s pit or in the middle of the pit lineup area.

Unacceptable:

1.Threaten someone with physical harm to his or her equipment, physical person or family. (You just don’t get to do this and not have a big guy with a badge & a gun come looking for you. Not even on the message boards.)

2.Ramming someone’s car on purpose at any time on the track or off… during green or yellow flag racing or after the race is over. (What’s the matter with you are you trying to kill someone and end up in jail?)

3.Getting in someone’s face and calling them names, bringing their family into it or calling his/her mother ANYTHING (again… what do you have a death wish or something?). We have addressed yelling, screaming and ranting so you should be familiar with it by now.

4.Shoving the track official, another competitor or cop (what are you just stupid or something? You don’t put your hands on a cop unless you want a real pretty pair of linked chrome bracelets). Putting your hands on ANYONE is not acceptable at all especially if you are angry.

6.Taking a swing at someone - open handed or with a fist and especially not with something IN your fist. (I mean come on… there IS more in your head than just mush… isn’t there?)


Penalties:
1.Heavy Fines
2.Probation
3.Suspension - with no reinstatement unless you can prove that you have had some kind of anger management course.


Notification:
1.Every track with in a 200-mile radius.

These are just my basics… There are more but I am out of time & ideas for the moment. If you have some to add... please do. I'm sure that I haven't covered everything...

This kind of behavior is not acceptable and needs to be dealt with. Period!
