Today I was rolling along in the left lane of a two-lane street when a little blue SUV started tailgating me (I was going 50, the speed limit).
I’m an obsessive blind spot/lane change checker, I have blind spot concave mirrors on both sides and on the rearview mirror. So I check the right lane, confirm the SUV is still behind me, check again, then move over into the right lane.
I glanced over to check that the driver was passing me on the left . . . and the car had just disappeared poof! The closest other cars were about 1/4 mile ahead and behind. The SUV wasn’t to my side, in front, or behind me, and there weren’t any turnoffs or driveways the driver could have suddenly turned into (especially going 55mph).
Most assuredly there is a logical explanation for this experience, our brains are very fallible. But putting boring old logic aside, what Matrix glitches have you experienced?
