So I’m heading to Noe Valley from the Sunset. This involves a right turn from eastbound Oak (a mojor east/west thoroughfare) to southbound Divisadero (which leads to Casstro & Market, the middle of the City). So I get to that intersection, and the light is red. There’s one car in front of me as I approach, whose turn signal is off. The last three parking spaces on the right are empty, so I pull into them to wait for my right turn. This way, if a third grade field trip decides to cross Divis in front of me when I want to turn, I won’t be holding up traffic.
So I’m inching up little by little, trying to see if Divis is clear, and keeping an eye out for pedestrians crossing Oak on their green. I notice the car that was in front of me, and is now on my left, keeps inching up every time I do, and the same distance. After that happens a few times, I look up at the driver (and yes, it’s an SUV), and evidentally I really pissed him off. He keeps motioning at my car, saying, “What the hell are you doing?!” All I can say is “right turn,” with a shrug. Afer I turn, he turns as well behind me. He continues to give me stank eye until he turns onto Haight.
Dude, I’m sorry your little peabrain is unable to grasp the concept of traffic efficiency, but if there’s a safe way to prevent congestion, I’m gonna take it. If your balls are so defective that you feel a need to compensate by being OMG FUR$T!!1! in line, you need to figure out how to use the little clicky/flashy thing behind your steering wheel. I’m not gonna sneak by you if you’re indicating a turn, but if you can’t be assed to do such a simple little thing, then don’t be surprised by people driving right past you.
