I was rude once, but only because I felt unsafe.

I came up to a light that had just turned green and a cyclist who had not dismounted his bike but was waiting on the central reservation, set off to go with the passing traffic without warning (presumably waiting for a gap between cars), except he didn’t look properly and failed to see me. I shouted ‘WATCH OUT FFS’ which caught his attention. He stopped dead, let me pass and then answered ‘Use your bell then you moron!’ There would have been a collision in the middle of moving traffic if neither of us had stopped.

Think of it what you will. I hope my rudeness was unpleasant enough that he’ll remember to give way to traffic passing through a green light next time he decides to dart out without looking.
