As an aggressive driving, always late constant commuter you guys need to calm down. This guy is already exceeding the speed limit and you think he needs to go faster because you planned your day poorly? PIssed off because he is inconsiderate? How about you, who think you dictate the flow of every one elses traffic.
I lane hop, I speed (10 over is about my max though) and I get frustrated but I don't tailgate and I dont break check. Those are two things that can quickly ruin my car and endanger my family.
"Never attribute to maliciousness that which can be attributed to stupidity."
if you are in the passing lane, actively passing, and already breaking the law by speeding to make that pass more quickly....
why is is my responsibility to go EVEN FASTER just to get out of YOUR ***hole way?
Of course I rarely encounter this because I don't get passed, I'm typically the passer.
Similar thing happens here, there are 2 lane way between cities and the limit is 80Km/h and some stretches it is 100, however, the right side is most of the times packed with slow cars and heavy trucks during normal days (even weekends) . your only option is to take the left side, which I usually do around 110 or 120 Km/h. Going the right side is not an option, but there's always a moron doing 140+ that thinks the left side is only for him, and keeps flashing high beams to others in the left. (mostly high end cars and mk4s , rarely truckers)
I usually dont yield those guys until I see a clear in the right side to safely switch lanes and slow down to that lane speed. I kind of support the OP.

The thing that bothers me about our Finnish friend is that he lives in Finland.
We all know how anal Europeans are about camping in the left lane..Fact of the matter is, it's annoying. You're not the police. Here in Canada the limit is 100 km/h on the highway. Most people travel about 115km/h. I prefer around 125-130, so it's not like I'm doing 160 and flying by cars at an astounding rate. I'm not endangering anyone, I just feel more comfortable traveling at a higher speed.
You shouldn't dictate how fast others go on the highway. If you're "concerned about your safety", stay out of that lane, it's that simple. And if you're only going 8 km/h over the limit I'm sure you wouldn't mind going 8 km/h slower and following the cars in the right lane.

I already had my signal on and just continued my original trajectory over into the left lane a few feet ahead of him, forcing him to go from full throttle to full brake, which resulted in a hilarious nosedive and an exasperated "WTF" hand gesture from him.
I just don't get people sometimes. I didn't do anything to antagonize the guy.
I know what other cars do that annoy me and I go out of my way to avoid doing those same things to other people. If I can do a few little things to help keep the road clear and to enhance the calmness of people around me, I do. I also try to never, ever be in someone's way.
