It's easy to get all upset, though I just try to stay out of the way (goes back to my flying habits). Wave and say, "thanks for the wake", especially if it's a large one.

There's too many things to get upset about, I just try not to let anyone ruin the fun I'm having.

You missed the point where he said he had to take evasive action.

I have been put in the same position a couple of times. The AICW can be very narrow in some places and if an oncoming boat takes his half out of the middle it can put you in danger of going aground trying to avoid him. Picture this: A narrow land cut a mile or more long, straight as an arrow and lined by flat terrain and sea grass. The only two things moving are your boat and his. How can he not see you and move to his starboard enough for a safe passage? Yet he doesn't.

The only other option is to "play chicken", hold your course, and see if he takes action to avoid you. Most of us don't want to risk our boats and our safety to do this however.

We're not talking about a wake here although there will probably be one, we are talking about a collision. That's something to get upset about in my book.
